Gabriel Diaz, the fireman, has a confusing ability. His card states that he MAY reveal the top 4 cards of the item deck. Does that mean he may reveal UP TO 4 cards to himself, or 4 cards to ALL the players? If he reveals 4 cards, and he would like to keep the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th card (not the top card); would he be able to KEEP that card? Does every card he sees past the 1st card add Noise? And why would the fireman want to keep the Outsider card in his hand? Could he then play the Outsider card at his will? Thank you

He may because he doesn't have to use his ability. It's noteworthy that his ability doesn't need a die, whereas normal search actions cost a die. Gabriel Diaz can also search normally.

You reveal 4 cards to all players. The cards don't add noise.

If there are one or more outsiders among the revealed cards, choose one and put it into your hand. Helpless survivors ("useless people") tag along as normal.

Outsider cards are treated like items. You don't have to use them when you find them. Sometimes it's beneficial not to play them right away because of food shortage.

Thematic background: The fireman is good at finding and rescuing people.
