It is better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
Gabriel Lucas Michaels.
Daken - Ancient Mayan for "Beast"
182 CM tall. 84 KG heavy. Very well toned. He has a few scars and bruises.
He always wears his two pendants, one pentagram, and one cross, both of them made out of pure iron.
He usually wears nothing more fancy than a rather typical outfit. He does however always keep a pair of black-gloves on.
Gabriel is a serious young man, he is a soldier, both in heart and body. He comes off as bitter and quite the party-pooper, often demanding people to be more serious. He believes in protecting people, not just his people, but all people. However, as the soldier he is, he knows that war has it's costs, that there is collateral damage. He tries the best he can to protect people he care about. He is a Christian through and through, and prays for friends and foes alike, wishing them both the best, both in this life, and the next. Contrary to popular belief, his rather animalistic powers does not alter his personality.
Powers Of The Cheetah:
According to what Remy has told him, his mutation is that of a cheetah, the dexterity and the claws but also it's never ending will to hunt.
Super Human Senses:
He has enhanced smell and sight, that is many times superior to that of a human.
Super Human Dexterity
"Perfection" as some would've called it. The ability to never trip, to never fumble. The complete lack of being clumsy. (Sidebar: No, this does not mean perfect accuracy.)
His body is able to heal from wounds at an incredible rate, however, compared to the man of similar powers as himself, Gabriel's healing is slow. This also applies to his regeneration of Stamina.
Retractable Vibranium Claws:
He is able to retract two 40 CM long Blades from his hands, very much akin to that of Weapon X. However, his claws are composed of a different component, put into him already as a child. The vibranium has a lighter mass, and his vibranium only coats his bones, making them harder to brake, but not unbreakable. However, unlike Adamantium, Vibranium is "Bendable" To Gabes will, hence, he can make his claws bend to hold onto things, and such.
Multi-Lingual: He speaks 4 different languages, including Spanish, English, Hebrew and Arabic.
Free-Running: Argentina had it's perks with helping him raise his acrobatic skills.
Martial Arts: He has basic training in Kaw Magra and in Kick Boxing, not much to hang in the tree besides that.
Tactician: Having studied a vast amount of historical battles, he has a good sense for tactics.
Born in Lawrence, his mother was a Hispanic woman, and his father was a War-Vet. His mother left not too long after his birth. His father began an alcoholic abuse, that went out over Gabriel, whom constantly took the beating, knowing there was nothing he could do. Well, that is, till one day, when suddenly, his father was beating him more than usual, and in one brutal swipe, he slashed his father over the face, with the claws that had sprouted from his hands.
He fled from home, following this, as his father called the UO, whom began hunting him. He fled to Argentina, where he spent his pre-teens and early teens, running with a couple of mutant gangs, just trying to make ends meet. He ran from the UO, as best as he could. Till the M.H.S came at them. One sentinel, and Rio was in ruins, his gang was dead, and the only reason he survived was because that a Cajun saved his life.
That was two years ago, and he has stuck with the man since then, doing his best to serve the cause for equality and peace.
