Geoffroy Gastinois was born into an affluent middle-class family in the département of Omara, and attended private schools. While finishing his collegiate studies and juris-doctorate, Gastinois worked in his father's insurance company as an adjustor. When Gastinois graduated law-school, he was quickly accepted as a corporate lawyer for his family's insurance company, Omara Life Insurance Co.

After 10 years, Gastinois was elected to serve as an MP to the Prefectoral Parliament. It was during this time that his homosexual interests were uncovered by the press. For a time there was talk in the media of him resigning from the Parliament. Within a few months, however, it became clear that Gastinois would not resign, but would continue the rest of his term.

Through his devotion to his position and his unimpeachable track record Gastinois succeeded in garnering public support, which was useful in his race against Pierre Godbehère for the Prefectoral seat.

Godbehère, the incumbent, was touted as the likely winner, having held much support from the Native Americans in the Prefecture. This was shown to be untrue, as Gastinois was tallied as having garnered 85% of the popular vote, sufficent to elect him to head the Préfecture.
