This is the (semi) clean lineart of Gabriel's true form. After doing a failed colored pencil version, I've decided that I'll probably color this digitally instead... I think he deserves it.
At any rate, this is why you don't mess with Gabriel. When in this form, he is extremely strong, extremely fearsome, but it has one major drawback. He's rendered blind.
Well, its a little more complicated than that. If Gabriel were to open his eyes in this form, everyone before him in sight range would be ripped apart molecule by molecule. Basically disintegrated on sight without prejudice or mercy.
On another note, Gabriel is one of three creatures in my story with this amount of wings and power, though it seems as though he is the only one with that kind of destruction centered on the eyes.
He hates using this form because he needs someone to direct him to fight in this form, so he doesn't open his eyes and annihilate everyone. As you can tell that would be a hard job... You'd need to be gifted with the ability to think on the fly, and you'd have to know a lot about battle and fighting.... hmm I wonder who'd be qualified for that?
