“You thought Phoenix Darling was bad? Oh honey, he's a puppy dog compared to Gabriel. That guy is a psychotic, sadistic, ruthless monster. So much so that even the Darlings were afraid of him.” — About Gabriel Darling
Gabriel Darling is the secret son of Charles and Leila Darling and was born with Phoenix and River, making them triplets and not twins as once thought. Unlike the rest of the Darling family, who lived in New York up until the hybrid war, ruling their vampire kingdom together as a family, Gabriel was cast out of their world and sent to live in insane asylum until he finally escaped after Charles and the other Darlings were killed by the witches.
