Gordonsville Ketchum-Carlon is a character in the Canadian Boys in-universe children's TV and book series Sackville Sailor.
Gordonsville is a 30-year-old able seaman of White English Canadian heritage. He has brown hair and light green eyes. He wears a bright grass-green Naval uniform with a dark grass-green collar and epaulettes, a light grass-green sailor's hat and a pair of black-and-pale lime-green shoes with revealing holes in the top.
On the surface, Gordonsville appears to be irreparably angry, because he has a near-constant furious look. This was taken at face value by Sackville and the other sailors in the Season 3 episode Gordonsville the Great, who initially avoided working with him because he didn't look like a very kind person. However, Gordonsville later proved those perceptions wrong when he started helping Sackville and Oromocto with moving some heavy loads off a cargo ship, making the job a lot easier on them. Since then, the other sailors have accepted that though he might look angry on the outside, on the inside he is hardworking and will always help people out if they're having problems with something.
- Gordonsville the Great (Season 3): debut episode. He was initially shunned by the other sailors (including Sackville) because they thought he was aggressive based on his near-permanent angry looks, but their perceptions of him were later proved wrong when Gordonsville showed diligence and respect in working with others. They learned that appearances can be deceiving, and it's wrong to judge someone at first sight based on how they look.
