Who were you as a human?
At the age of 5 Gabriel watched helplessly as his parents were murdered and his older sister Amelie (8yrs old) was sexually assaulted by cultists, shattering his mind. As he and his sister grew up in an orphanage , Gabriel began hearing voices and withdrawing from the world. Uncaring and awkward, Gabriel dropped out of secondary school and was released by the orphanage at 18. Neither drug-addicted Amelie nor schizophrenic Gabriel could hold a job, they did end up supporting each other on the Parisian streets.

Auditory Hallucinations

Why did you get taken?
Growing up, Amelie always took care of Gabriel. After two years of living on the streets an offer presented itself to Gabriel in the form of a fairy disguessed as a businessman. The man offered Gabriel money and power for parciipating in unspecified research. Desperate for a chance to return the favor to Amelie, Gabriel agreeed to the deal. The nxt day he was taken to Arcadia.

Why did you join your Entitlement?
In his search for Amelie, Gabriel found some changelings who had interacted with her. Suspecting she might have tried to find her way into Arcadia, he began looking for people who would have seen her. Gabriel found the Barony. They had no news but Gabriel worked his way into the organization so he could keep a close eye on the movements through the hedge

Explain any flaws you have.
As a side effect of a fear of silence, Gabriel talks to himself
Growing up schizophrenic, Gabriel did not develop social skills, since he now thrives on social interaction, he is ignorant of how social interaction works.
