This page in question has one or more images that aren't credited properly. Whether this be because the artist can't be found or the one who added the image was lazy, this needs to be fixed.

He was Gabriel of the Cherubim, Jibril of the El-Karrubiyan, those brought close to Allah. He sang praises to the Father during the dawn of creation. He covered the orphans and widows with his wings, warming them with his golden feathers. He announced the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The Left Arm of God. And... He with his sword caused a carnage taking the lives of Egyptian babies during the Tenth Plague. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by him in a fiery Armageddon, all because a man could not date another man. He broke the main rule between Heaven and Earth and had a relationship with a woman who inhabited the human world, which resulted in a religious war to this day. Why did he do all this? He doesn't even know... He just did as God commanded. The Left Hand of God.
John Constantine.

Gabriel is a True Archangel. His name means "God is my strength" and is known to be the left hand of God and the embodiment of the Holy Spirit, in contrast to Michael who is the right hand of God.

Overview

Gabriel is the angel who helps people who are in the fields of creative expression find their way. He protects children and helps parent assist their children. He is the Archangel of revelation, motherhood, creation, temperance, among others. Like other archangels and angels, Gabriel was created between day one and day two of creation. The Archangel is God's personal messenger, he is God's intercessor to mankind, always going on missions in Father's name.

Among these missions, it is believed that he was the one who destroyed the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah, that he was the one who killed the mighty Nephilim in Enoch's time, and he is also believed to be the angel of death who killed all the firstborn in Egypt. However, his most notable feat was to appear to Mary and announce a coming Savior of mankind. Due to his effectiveness in complying with God's orders, Gabriel is nicknamed "Will of the God".

Appearance

Like the other angels, Gabriel's true form cannot be seen by humans. They say that its light is so intense that it burns the eyes of those who see it and explodes the eardrums of those who hear its voice. As a True Archangel, Gabriel's appearance shifts to whatever the angel desires or needs at that very moment. However, Gabriel will always have at least 1 to 12 pairs of golden wings on his back though they can also be white wings with blue tips that glow brighter than the dawn.

In his first human form, Gabriel was described by the prophet Daniel as having a body of beryl, a face like lightning and his eyes like torches of fire, and his arms and feet shining like burnished bronze; and his voice of words was like the voice of a crowd.

In his second form, Gabriel appears as a man in his 20s, with silvery hair and amber yellow eyes. Gabriel usually appears wearing a white t-shirt and a dark sweatshirt over blue pants. On a few occasions, Gabriel appears with a detective's cap on his head, usually Gabriel wears when investigating the mysterious entities of creation.

In his female form, Gabriel appears as a woman in her early 20s, with thigh-length blond hair with red spikes and bright blue eyes. In this form, Gabriel has medium breasts, a fine waist and hips. When on Earth, she appears wearing a white T-shirt under a red sweatshirt, wearing a brown skirt that reaches to her feet. She also wears a pair of dark boots. On some occasions, she appears wearing a cross around her neck. Her three sizes are B88/W55/H85 cm.

Personality

Out of all the angels, Gabriel deeply loves the humans and spends the majority of his time living among them. He will, silently, protect the humans he walks amongst whenever they are threatened. In human form he is laid-back, jovial, humble, and an eccentric person. However, he shows a deceptively cunning and serious side when the situation warrants it, and unlike his brothers, Gabriel is actually sarcastic and humorous when he needs to be, making him the most 'human' of the angels. Due to this traits, he is one of the few beings that can calmly withstand and even understand John Constantine's endless cynism, cunning behavior, sarcastic wits, con artist nature, and even his counter-culture beliefs, while remaining friendly and even wisecracking in his approach and making fun of his manipulative nature.

He is very calm, laid back, and level-headed both in his angel and human forms. Gabriel greatly understood honor and noble sacrifice, so much that God given him great wisdom in dealing things in a peaceful and wise manners. He is highly loyal and loving towards God and his siblings, even towards his Fallen brethren. So much that he (along with Michael) volunteers to guide and protect Jesus from behind the scenes to His journey and mission on Earth. He is also one of the few angels that greatly admired and respect the human spirit, the ability to dream, and the noble will of humanity, so much that he states to Lucifer that the very beings he despise and sought to corrupt the most are capable of doing impossible and unthinkable things.

Gabriel is known to be a trickster among his brothers, however, he does not lie. He has immense knowledge and understanding of the flow, application, and consistency of magical energy. Among his brothers, he is the most proficient in using spells and attacks, and can even use multiple ones in conjunction for various combination and diversion tactics. So well-versed that he is the one that help Sparda imprison and temporary cut off Satan's connection on Earth. Lucifer even admitted that Gabriel is unpredictable.

It is rare for Gabriel to become serious or grim, for most of the time he appears as a humble, optimistic, calm, and friendly angel. But when provoke and angered enough, he can be frighteningly calm and silent while showing his more sinister, cold, and ruthless side, more frightening than Lucifer himself. This shows that he can be scary, much like his brother Michael. He shows this, when he coldly and mercilessly slaughtered a group of angels and demons that killed innocent people in their battle against the other, and nearly killed the Archdemon empress Lilith if Amitiel and Jophiel didn't interfere.

Also, despite Gabriel's good natured to protect and love humanity, he still has a limits. Where he countlessly witness the mortals' inherited evil, like witnessing them doing sinful things, their cruelty, greed, lust for power, pride over their status, etc. Whenever Gabriel witnesses this kind of behaviors from humanity, Gabriel becomes grim, sadistically sarcastic, and indifferent to them. Where he let's the Ghost Riders (along with the Dark Angels inside them) and Hellspawns punish the guilty, wicked, and sinners while looking at them with a cold and emotionless expression, and claim that humans with no remorse and embrace their inner wickedness deserves to be punish and sent to the eternal suffering and torment, none other than the Hell. He claims that it is for the greater good of those who are innocent and righteous in soul and nature.

History

Gabriel was created by God during or even before the creation of the Universe, created from the light and glory of the Creator.

During the time the sons of God bore children with the daughters of men, giving rise to the mighty Nephilim, Gabriel and his siblings, Michael, Raphael and Uriel, were selected to end the threat of the Nephilim and the rebellious angels, with Gabriel getting the mission to end the abominations born of the result of the union of angel and human.

During the year 2,067 BCE, he went on a mission alongside his brother Raphael and an avatar of God, El Shaddai when they visited the patriarch Abraham and his wife, Sarah. Raphael's mission was to cure the mother of faith of her infertility, while Gabriel's was to infiltrate with Raphael in the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah. Gabriel and Raphael assumed female forms to enter the city with the intention of seeing if the town was indeed a town full of lust. Unfortunately, the people of that city were even worse than the the reports the two had received. Raphael then took Lot and his family from Sodom while Gabriel destroyed the two twons and others shrouded in flames.

In 7-2 BCE, Gabriel was chosen to appear to the Virgin Mary to announce the birth of Jesus, the Messiah promised by the God of Israel in the Old Testament. Before that, Gabriel had already appeared to Priest Zechariah and announced the birth of John the Baptist, who, in addition to being Jesus' cousin, would be the one who would prepare the way for the true and unique light of the world. However, because Zechariah doubted his words, Gabriel was annoyed by the Priest's disbelief and left him speechless until the day John the Baptist was born.
