|“||I am not your enemy. And I am not your friend. I am simply here for what is mine.||”|
— Seth Gecko to patrons in In a Dark Time
When Seth was younger, he and Richie had to deal with an abusive father. One night, the house was on fire and Richie got Seth to get them out before the flames consumed them. Seth originally thinks the fire was caused by his father's cigarette, not by Richie, who wanted to get rid of their father by burning him alive. He and Richie would grow up to be criminals and form a crew pulling off 35 jobs together. He attempted to steal from Big Jim without Richie's help, and as a result, the job didn't work out, and he was sent to jail for five years, where he supposedly got into numerous fights when not playing dominoes.
At some point in 2008, he and his brother discussed strategy at a strip club.

He looks at it and tells him that everything is fine. He then goes out and demands what Richie is doing as he has Jessie held hostage. Richie tells him that they know who they are and Seth asks her if she said anything. She tells him no and then he tells them that as long as they play along, he'll let them go since the rangers have arrived. They hide in the back and when Richie shoots Earl, Seth asks what he was doing. He tells him that Pete was signaling the Ranger and Pete argues that he didn't. A shootout then happens between the brothers and Freddie Gonzalez, and when Freddie tells them that every law enforcement is after them at every corner of the roads, Seth makes a call to Carlos Madrigal and asks for one of his men to pick them. After Seth tells Freddie that they are getting a helicopter to get them, Freddie makes a deal with them that he'll let them go. Seth receives a call from Carlos again about how his boss says he can't do the deal, Seth is upset and the ruse the Rangers were pulling becomes another shootout. After Earl dies and Freddie went through the glass door, Seth notices Richie is getting kicked by the two girls and Jessie tells him that there is something wrong with his brother, and Seth just looks at him.

Kate asks him if he wants any company and he thinks for a few moments, and tells her he does. They drive off into the distance.
In Opening Night, it has been three months since Seth and Kate left the Titty Twister. Seth seems to be becoming reckless as he is not paying attention to everyone during his robberies. His latest theft went wrong as one of the bags he has was filled with bounced checks. Kate tries to reason he needs another pair of eyes, a partner but he disagrees. Seth is also now using drugs to deal with his problems, to Kate's annoyance. After Kate leaves, Seth wakes up from his drug stupor and hears someone knocking at the door. It's the night manager and he has towels for Kate. He keeps asking about Kate and Seth tells him that she's okay and asks why he keeps wondering about her. The night manager says it's because she believes in God and Seth figures out that the manager is culebra, and kills him. Kate then comes through the door and tells him she found another heist plan. Seth is also seen getting a cover up on his neck tattoo because of the bite marks in his neck. Afterwards, he and Kate are then seen at the Mercado eating and watching The Collector.
In In a Dark Time, he and Kate are seen planning their next heist and Seth is also seen with Sonja and is talking about his and Kate's new ID's and Sonja tells him they won't be ready until the next day. At first, Seth is a little upset they weren't done, but then looks at the doorknob and has Kate practice with a fake one. She is having trouble with it and they start talking about their brothers and how they both are dead. After arguing a little more, Kate gets the pop and lock and is extremely happy. Seth is also seen with Sonja and is talking about his and Kate's new ID's and Sonja tells him they won't be ready until the next day. Rafa is then with both Kate and Seth going over the plan and Seth is suspicious about Rafa as he has an altar with Santanico as a statue near his stand. Rafa remains calm about it and Seth looks at Kate, but she smiles awkwardly at him. Seth is seen trying to distract Sonja and gets a text from Rafa about the Collector and he then puts a cloth of chloroform over her mouth and she passes out. Seth jiggles the handle on the doorknob and when Kate breaks it, he comes through. The Collector is near the safe and notices the door leading to the beauty salon is open and when he goes near, Seth is behind him and hits in the back, knocking him out. Seth then goes back through the tattoo parlor and tells Kate it's time to go. The beautician, Chino and another man are then seen about ready to get them, but Seth points the gun at them and tells them that the money rightly belongs to him. They run and Seth shoots at two of the men, and the beautician fires her gun at them. They duck and she is shot at by The Regulator, who also shot through Rafa's throat. The Regulator goes up to them and tells Seth that he needs him to find Richie and Santanico, but tells Kate he doesn't need her. Rafa then jumps on top of him and distracts him long enough for the two to escape. The Regulator chases after them and is about to shoot until Rafa jumps on top of him again and burns to ash while sacrificing himself for them to run. While driving down a road, Seth tells Kate that it is a waste of time looking for her brother and that all culebras are evil. She tells him to stop the car and he does, and she gets out. He looks back through the window and backs up, and gives her most of the money, but some for himself, and then leaves on foot, giving her the car.
In Attack of the 50 Ft. Sex Machine, Seth is in a drug induced haze and hallucinates seeing both Santanico and Kate. At first he thinks Kate came back because she couldn't stay away, she roughly moves his head and transforms into a vampire and begins sucking his blood. He then wakes up with Sonja attacking him. She asks him what his problem is and then ties him up in a chair. She asks for money back as she is being watched and for damages to her store. He tells her he gave it to Kate and she says they'll find another way to get it back and she forces him to get clean and drain the drug out of him, and she then leaves. He hallucinates seeing The Regulator and he falls down on his side while still in the chair. Sonja comes back and helps him get up and he hallucinates more of her being a vampire and her heart missing. She hugs him while he apologizes for pulling a gun on her. Afterwards, he is sitting outside the room and what he says to Sonja makes her leave. He is then seen getting dressed into a suit and when he thinks Sonja has walked into the room, he apologizes and hopes he can make it up, instead it is Carlos who is in the room. They exchange words and then Seth shoots him near his stomach, but it doesn't do anything. Carlos lifts him up and Seth shoots multiple times which do no damage.

They leave the place and when Richie goes for at least two of the cars, Seth shoots both of the cars' tires and then he tells Richie they are taking his car. Seth gets a call from Eddie who is berating Richie for being an idiot, and Seth tells Richie he sends his love. They meet up with Sheriff McCorkle and they give him some money to tell them what he knows, but he doesn't exactly oblige. They leave and later on they get a lead to where the truck with girls are at. They stop the truck and the kill the driver who was a culebra. McCorkle shows up and he reveals that he was in league with Amancio and he takes the truck to Amancio's headquarters.

Richie gives Seth salt and when he notices Richie needs sauce, he gets the waiter to give him some. After they are done and filled, Seth comments that the place isn't bad, which makes Richie smile. After they hear commotion, they go to the ladies' bathroom and see Santanico having Sonja in a chokehold. They get her to let her go and Seth calls her a freak and takes Sonja away.
In There Will Be Blood, Seth is trying to get some of the money and recruits one of the culebras to help him get the money on the truck. After getting it on the truck, the culebra and Cristobal try to go against him, and when he thinks he gets the upper hand, he is captured by the Arbiter, who tells him he has soft skin. He is seen shirtless in the torture chamber and is having lotion rubbed on him. He then sees Winchester Greely with part of his face torn off. After seeing the keys on Arbiter, he tries to talk to him about what he is going to do, and when Arbiter says that he'll be taken care of when Amancio leaves, Seth tells him that he isn't exactly one of Amancio's priorities. When the Arbiter gets ready, Seth kicks him into the cages of the other culebras and they begin to tear the Arbiter apart, and Seth tells them to be careful with the keys. After he and Greely load the money on the truck, Seth is getting a telepathic message from Santanico, and it makes him drop to his knees. Greely tries to get him, but instead leaves Seth, who is still listening to Santanico. He is then in Amancio's office and she telepathically tells him to find the suitcase that has the two weapons she sharpened previously.

Amancio throws a box and knocks Seth down, Santanico stabs Amancio in the chest and tears out some organs. Seth then stabs him in the back and Santanico proceeds to kill Amancio's snake, causing him to turn to ash.
In Santa Sangre,
Seth Gecko has a suave sense to him, and has short, black hair, with some stubble grown on his face. He wears a dark blue three piece suit with tonal stripes.There is a 'flame' tattoo over his whole right arm, of which he got it in honor of Richie saving him from the house fire their father died in when they were young. In Season two, he gets more flames added to the tattoo (to cover bite marks left by Richie), it now spreads up to his neck. He appears to be in his late twenties.
He has a "take no prisoners" attitude and even though he is a criminal, he is shown to care about others. He has a protective side to him as well, taking the defense of his brother Richard, and, more recently, Kate. He is sort of the mouth and crowd control to where Richie is the brains and locksmith. Above all else, Seth just wants everyone to 'Be Cool.' Seth has a very headstrong personality, and often challenges his temporary captors in risky situations, being heavy on sarcastic remarks and bluffs. He is one to get into drugs and drinks quite easily, and even has Kate help insert heroin into his blood in season two. In season one, he has a certain rivalry with Santanico, possibly because he feels threatened by her taking Richard, his partner in crime, away from him. Towards the end of season two, however, he develops a certain respect for her that was not present earlier, and even helps defend her against Malvado in There Will Be Blood. He holds family high among his morals, and cherishes his blood, even going as far as saying that his father's actions were "justified" to a point because of the fact that they were related, causing resentment towards his brother after discovering that Richie was the cause of his death. Seth is more than capable of defending himself with both fist and barrel, and is extremely skilled at putting difficult-to-assemble guns back together, as this was something he was forced to perform in the presence of his father. Like his brother, he is not one to express his feelings openly.
