Events of Criminal Case

The Bloom of Doom

After arresting Valereea Valz's killer, Gabriel expressed his concerns about Meera Kat's psychopathic behavior. He asked the player to accompany him to Gallereea di Valereea to see what Meera's next project would be. At the art gallery, they found a film roll which Cathy noticed was full of images of people trapped under rubble from the earthquake.

When Gabriel and the player confronted Meera, she exhibited no signs of remorse and claimed that the photos were for the sake of art. She then left to obtain her promotional materials from the art store. Gabriel and the player then rushed to intercept her package, where they learned that Meera's next show would be sponsored by Megu Hashira. When they warned Megu about Meera, Megu defended her and said that Meera would go far with the right financial backing.

Writer's Blocked

After arresting Reggie Liotta's killer, Gabriel analyzed a brochure from The Higher Truth, a cult. He was able to discover that while the cult did not demand monetary contributions from their members, recruiters were encouraged to go after the vulnerable and wealthy. After that, he suggested that he infiltrate the cult so he could learn more about the inner workings and inform the team about the cult.

With Martine's help, Gabriel was able to look like a jet-setter. He then went to the museum garden and was eventually recruited by member Timothy. However, as the cult also encouraged its members to cut off connections with friends and family, his communication with the team was limited. However, he still promised to update them as frequently as possible.

I Lost My Heart in Xerda

After arresting Kayla Markham's killer, Gabriel told the team that he was to be bitten by a bug whose venom caused hallucinations during Steven Crowe's announcement of The Higher Truth's big plan. However, he needed an antidote for the venom in order to stay in control. The team then found the bugs outside the Xerdan temple, which Rupert used to devise an antidote to the hallucinations, finding out that the bug venom also induced fearlessness. The team then gave Gabriel the antidote.

The Truth Hurts

Gabriel became a suspect after Gloria and the player uncovered Steven's murder. He told them that he was at the cult's headquarters, trying to convince people to leave before the Release. After Gloria said that they needed to interrogate Grayson Rosewater, Steven's second-in-command, Gabriel said that he did not know where he was, and that he needed to return to the cult to inform them of Steven's murder. Gloria and the player then left to investigate the outside of the cult's headquarters.

Gabriel was spoken to again about his false alibi for the murder, as Cathy had proven that he was at the New Age Fair. He confessed that he had tried to talk to the victim and change his mind after failing to convince the others. However, the victim seemed not to care and thought that the Release would save the people.

Gabriel was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Skylar Sage for Steven's murder. He later spoke with Jones and the player about trying to help the indoctrinated cult members recover. Per Ramirez, Gabriel and the player learned that Dr Jennifer Russo ran a cult help hotline and persuaded her to help the cultists.


As the Profiler of the Grimsborough Police Department, Gabriel has the responsibility of analyzing physical objects and/or clues that cannot be analyzed flawlessly through bio-forensics or digital analysis, but instead through psychological analysis, and to return the results after a certain amount of time or a speed-up process using Criminal Case Cash. His task-wait rates vary depending on the difficulty of the task, but they all cost 1 Criminal Case Cash per 30 minutes.
