Gabriel grew up under the wings of his father Astralius and under the care of his mother Azura. Over the years he took an interest in learning new things and satisfying his ever growing curiosity. As he reached the age of 20, Gabriel became one of the most intelligent of all the Astrals thus making him become the scholar that everyone wishes to learn from. He eventually got more attention from people and creatures all across Terrahypt.
His brother however was disgusted by the fact that he got more attention from others than himself. Now filled with jealousy and hatred towards his brother, he planned to kill him and take his pace to become the favored son of Astralius. One quiet night as he slept among a group of Maternals whom wished to gain his offspring from him, he woke up to the sound of screaming as Lucius approached him ready to tear him apart. Being left with no choice, he fought against his own flesh and blood trying to protect himself, but was quickly overpowered by his might.
As he lied on the ground with Lucius on top of him holding his hand to his neck and raising his claw, he was sure he would die. He then closed his eyes only to hear a familiar voice call out "Stop!" He looked up to see Astralius and Azura standing over the 2 and lifted Lucius off him and looked at him with a look of disgust and anger. Gabriel got back on his feet before Astralius escorted him back to the tower of Azal.
Gabriel found himself back in the tower in a large room filled with Astrals and Maternals alike with Astralius and Lucius in the middle. Astralius looked to Lucius and spoke. "Why did you do it? Why would you try to murder your own brother? Speak!" Lucius spoke to the Clanfather saying, "He is nothing, he has gotten all the attention, and for what? His curiosity?! That is pathetic! We are warriors! Hunters! We eat what we kill!" He was then interrupted by Astralius. "That is not our way, we are a civilized and well mannered race!" He was then interrupted by Lucius. "Then you are an old man and a fool!!!" Astralius looked at him with a bit of shock before speaking. "Your right. I am a fool. To think you would accompany your brother Gabriel to lead my people to the promised land if I go."
Gabriel got up to speak out. "Father, I'm sure he-" Astralius interrupted him. "You are not concerned here child! Nor are you to blame!" Gabriel sat back down and watched as the trial went on. "Therefore, in all my willpower and stature as ruler of my people," 2 Astrals grab him to turn him around with his wings facing Astralius before seeing a hole open up in the floor in the center of the room. "and with the power gifted to me by Tyg," He saw his father pick Lucius up and place him over the hole while struggling. "I banish you!" He then saw Lucius get thrown down into the hole before hearing his scream begin to fade as the hole closed shut.
Years went by ever since that moment and Gabriel continues to teach others of certain tales and fables of Terrahypt.
Gabriel is quite humble and always sounds like a wise old man when he speaks. He seems to sometimes speak in riddles when talking about certain things and rather enjoys the company of others.
- Gabriel's name derives from the Arch-angel from the christian bible.
