Gary Harrison is a new Mormon student from Utah. He is a minor supporting character from South Park.
Gary is the first Mormon character on South Park. He tries to befriend Stan fairly quickly.
When Gary joins the fourth grade class, Mr. Garrison tells the class about Gary's past. Gary previously lived in Utah, where he was a straight-A student and captain of the wrestling team. He has been in two toothpaste commercials.
Gary is arguably the kindest character in the entire series, able to forgive teasing or threats, and see the good side to everything. When he is teased and bullied by other students at school, he doesn't appear to be bothered by it. For example, in "All About Mormons", Eric Cartman introduces himself to Gary as "Ura Fag." Rather than acting upset or embarrassed, Gary laughs. Later, when Stan threatens to “kick [his] ass,” Gary promises not to fight back and even hopes that they can be friends someday.
Although he's considerate and forgiving, Gary is not a pushover. When Stan refuses to be Gary's friend because of his religion, Gary responds with a very thoughtful speech about how proud he is to be Mormon and what it has done for him. The speech ends with: "All I ever did was try to be your friend, Stan. But you were so high and mighty that you couldn't just look past my religion and be my friend back. You've got a lot of growing up to do, buddy. Suck my balls."
