i've got problems, not just the ones that are little
the third child born to hannah and sam carpenter-tanaka, gabel began experiencing seizures at the age of two. at this point his parents, siblings, or the various pediatricians who treated him had no idea that his powers began to manifest at the same time. he did not speak until age four and his parents considered the child's first word "eyes" and his first sentence "it is scary there" as indications there was something terrifying happening to their son.
they frequented many child psychiatrists who assured them that gabel was either inventing scenarios for attention to keep from being the "forgotten" middle child after his younger sister was born, or was experiencing mild auditory/visual hallucinations associated with his waking seizures. these theories were acceptable to the carpenter-tanakas-- who showered their sickly, odd son in attention and put his on various medication and a special diet to help with his seizures-- until gabel began to talk openly about what he had come to call his "away time".
the complexity of his "away time" as well as its startling details that were beyond the ability of a elementary school student to abstractly imagine, gathered the attentions of many prominent psychologists and their colleagues in neuroscience. gathering as much information as they could out of the gruff child who'd begun to consider himself some sort of doomed anomaly this assembly of curious individuals finally decided to see if the boy was telling the truth: if he really did "go" somewhere else during his seizures. his parents, desperate for resolution and a way to help their son, agreed.
they hired a high level telepath, hooked gabel for an EEG, and waited. an hour or so later he began to suffer a clonic-tonic seizure and while his vitals remained "normal" for someone experiencing a generalized seizure (apart from a slight decrease in weight and drop in temperature), all brain activity in his temporal and frontal lobes came to a stand-still and the telepath was unable to locate any thoughts to read.
a few repetitions of these tests proved that this was not an isolated incident and the OSR decided to test the child for the Gft Mutation. As soon as the test was determined positive, hannah and sam tried to ward off the now ravenous individuals in the scientific community and let their son live his life as "normally" as possible. their efforts were wasted, though, on gabel himself who considered himself to be both a "chosen" being of advanced consciousness and an over-glorified "freak among freaks".
at age eleven, he slipped away from his parents in a crowded market, with the intention of leaving the OSR forever. he was picked up by a splinter group of TRIFECT who had heard about his confusing abilities and considered him to be some kind of reincarnated deity. He was contained in one of their child-oriented communes on the Algo side of the border between the OSR and Algo. gabel does not remember much of his time spent in this commune, but he developed a hatred for the colored red after his exposure to the TRIFECT and began to see flashes of it before experiencing focal seizures.(his only consistent aura thus far).
freed at age 17 during an OSR military raid, gabel was sent almost immediately to ennui and has only come in contact with his family through various visual and auditory technologies. the carpenter-tanakas incapable of doing much else due to hannah's employment in the military. since arriving at ennui, gabel has resisted both his education and all authority at every turn and is under constant surveillance not only because of his epilepsy but because of his frequent suicide attempts and disposition for violence.
POWER: dimension hopper who's exploration of other worlds is limited to a non corporeal projection of himself. these visions of other realities only occur when gabel is experience epileptic seizures. while generalized seizures thrust him into other dimensions entirely, his focal seizures cause a sort of bleeding through of elements or persons from other dimensions, which only he can see or hear, into his own.
