 / LIKES: Striped sweaters, messing with people's heads
 / DISLIKES: Almost everything, but especially hates it when something encroaches on his territory. Don't forget giant noodle sculptures.
 / Gabriel is a man on an ego trip. He's a dimension-hopping brain parasite, incubus, and psychic vampire who targets emotionally vulnerable men-- and he's taken a liking to Gideon. Gabriel pretends to be his friend and protector, but feeds off his negative mental energy. He won't tell Gideon that he lives in his brain and wreaks havoc when he's not looking. 

Gabriel is sly and manipulative. He molded his physical appearance to resemble a more "beautiful" version of Gideon to create a sense of familiarity with him--and maybe make him jealous in some strange way. He also loathes Gideon's noodle sculptures...but why? 

Gabriel deals with his problems by making other people do it for him.
