and i miss the way you make me feel .
DUMP          PINTEREST BOARD          PLAYLIST          MIXTAPE
I was younger then, take me back to when I Found my heart and broke it here, Made friends and lost them through the years. And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown. But I can't wait to go home. I'm on my way, Driving at ninety down those country lanes, Singing to "Tiny Dancer", And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real. We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.
NAME & NICKNAMES: gabriel xander griffin / "gabe"
AGE & DATE OF BIRTH: 16 years old, born 03/20. pisces.

CURRENT RANK & MEMBERSHIP: grunt of the badlands / former officer [shp]

SEXUALITY & RELATIONSHIP STATUS: heterosexual; single. (2) crushes
PARENTS & GENERATION: jack griffin, kathryn griffin. generation 0.
SIBLINGS & HALF-SIBLINGS: abby griffin
FRIENDS & CLOSE FRIENDS: eloise

PHYSICAL & MENTAL DIFFICULTY: physically medium; mentally easy-medium
LEVEL OF TRAINING & STYLE: somewhat trained under catalyst. uses fists and will hardly ever use weapons.
ENGAGEMENT: no capture/maim/kill without permission. peaceful powerplay is allowed. attack in underline.
TROPES: like father, unlike son; nice guy; living emotional crutch; pretty boy
FULL PERSONALITY: literally the goodest boy. he's trying his best!! he's a shining example of a good child: smart, friendly, kind, and so much more. gabriel is extremely good-hearted and sweet if you gain his trust. even to strangers, he's eager to please. he is helpful and generous to mostly everyone, whether he offers you a place to stay or if he offers you some of his own belongings. no matter if he's confused or nervous or feeling doubtful, he always tries to remain nice. he absolutely wants the best for his friends and wants to see them succeed; he's a very loyal person to have on your side. he's an extroverted introvert, or perhaps an ambivert, depending on who he's with.

gabe is cautious and often doubtful of his own abilities, but in dire situations, he learns to shut down his anxiety and rush forward foolishly if it means he can save himself or, more importantly, save others. also, can be naive at times depending on what he's faced with. of course he would like to change little things about himself and has insecurities like any other person, but not to the point where he's cripplingly anxious about himself and the world around him. if you didn't know better, you would probably say that he's a beacon of confidence and positivity.

gabriel is stubborn when frustrated, and sometimes even passive-aggressive, but he will rarely use violence against others. he is more of a peace-maker and a reasonable boy rather than a confrontational one.
