Gregor is the main protagonist of the story and is an Overlander.
Gregor lives in an apartment in New York City with his mother, Grace, Grandmother Margaret and two sisters Margaret (Boots) and Lizzie. Gregor is a sweet self-sacrificing 11 year old who enjoys science, running track, playing the saxophone and hanging out with his two friends Larry and Angelina.
Gregor picked up a lot of the slack when his dad disappeared a little over two years prior to Gregor the Overlander. Gregor does what he can for his family, including staying home from summer camp to take care of his baby sister Boots and their ailing Grandmother.
Suzanne Collins did not describe Gregor with much detail. Luxa comments that Boots' skin "must require much light"Bear grylls here haven't had ass in 8 weeks wish me luck. (Gregor the Overlander), and it is stated that both Lizzie and Boots have brown hair.
In Gregor the Overlander two rats named Fangor and Shed comment that Gregor's likeness is that of his father- that their "shade" matches. We can assume that Gregor has a tan and on many of the book covers he is depicted with dark hair.
