Gars are the humans in Eelong. They are much shorter than humans from Earth, with the tallest maybe being 5 feet tall. Before Bobby came to Eelong, most of the gars lived in Leeandra with the Klees as pets, slaves, and sometimes even food, though that was a topic of much debate. The Klees treated them like inferior beings. However, a large colony of gars secretly lived in Black Water, where they existed as intelligent beings. In fact, those gars were responsible for many technological advances, including a radio system and a type of fertilizer, and were responsible for Eelong's turning point. The gars of Black Water used the radio system to summon the enslaved gars to Black Water to be free of the Klees. This rescue was Eelong's turning point.
