No one knows why Gail hangs out with Chalice and her friends.  She's too.... perfect.  She is smart, charming, athletic, friendly, kind, and often wiser beyond her years.  While she holds a Ph.D and made the Olympic gymnastics team as a teen, she currently teaches third grade and volunteers at the YWCA.

....and no one feels intimidated by her or hates her for it.

Also, she is related to Lance in a way that no one can seem to explain.
