Early History

Gabriele's coming into the world wasn't anything special or groundbreaking by any stretch of the imagination, but for Isabella at age 19 it would change her life drastically, and in ways that nobody could have imagined. For the most part, Isabella would raise Gabriele on her own, not knowing who the boy's father was but bravely venturing forward to take care of her infant son.

There isn't much to be said for Gabriele's early childhood either; he attended preschool, then kindergarten, then elementary school, making friends and getting into the ordinary spats that children his age got into over trivial things and making friends with other kids. While all this was going on, Isabella was working long hours to support herself and her son; still, the two always managed time in the evening to talk to one another.This routine would follow the same cycle until Gabriele was almost 10 years old in 4th grade.

By the time he was 10 and going on 11, there was something that started changing between Gabe and his mother; she started spending more time at home with him, paying a lot of one-on-one attention to the boy and cuddling with him. It remained fairly innocent for a while, and to anyone looking in from the outside they seemed like any other mother and child; however, unknown to Isabella and Gabriele was that something in her mind was not running quite right. Some might speculate that Isabella having her son so young might have been the cause, maybe something to do with postpartum depression, or maybe even lacking a male figure in the house to serve as a significant other for her and a father for Gabriele. Either way, Isabella's Jocasta complex would eventually serve to be their undoing.

When Gabriele hit puberty at age 13, he hit a growth spurt as his voice cracked and deepened, his features starting to appear more mature as he started to grow up; Isabella, of course, took notice. Much of what would start as otherwise innocent, if slightly suggestive gestures would grow gradually worse; Gabriele, ever trusting of his mother, suspected nothing and would never fully come to realize that the nature of their relationship was taboo, though by no fault of his own other than wanting to make his mother happy.

Gaimen City

By the time Gabriele was 18 years old, almost through with high school, their relationship was more akin to significant others than a mother and son, and with the manner he had been raised in, the boy never suspected that anything was wrong despite that his mother asked they keep quiet. Being coddled and sheltered, though, had taken its toll on his mental health, causing Gabriele to become emotionally fragile in the sense that he was quick to change moods with little or no provocation. His outlook on the rest of the world was naive and childish, though as it became apparent that the boy was much like an overgrown child, there was very little anyone could do about it.

It would be shortly after graduating high school that Gabriele's own life would change very drastically; what might have otherwise been an outing through the city would end in tears. While he was jaywalking, Isabella pushed her son from the path of a fast-moving vehicle, expiring at the scene of the hit while Gabriele went into hysterics and then anguish. The trauma paired with his already shaky mental state caused Gabe to regress back to the mental age of around 9 years old, unable to remember anything that happened to him after that age and behaving in the same manner as he did then. As a legal adult, he did not have to go through an adoption system, but with no idea how to take care of himself, Gabriele eventually just wandered out of the house in search of people.

It's been two years since the incident, and Gabriele is contented to living in the homeless shelter with his pet cat, a stray called Chico; he has shown little if any progress in regaining his memories, and is cared for by the volunteers at the shelter.

Family

Gabriele has never met his father, but was very close to his mother throughout his life; however, being mentally regressed to the mindset of a child, he still believes his mother is alive, even though she is not present.

Love Life

In a twisted sense, it could be said that Gabriele has maintained one, albeit unknowing that it was considered taboo among society. However, he was taught early enough that it wasn't wrong, and thusly never learned that the sexual abuse he endured was wrong and unusual.

Condition

Having suffered psychologically crippling trauma while already in a fragile state of mind, Gabriele has mentally regressed to about that of a 9-year-old child; he has no memories of his life beyond that age, and behaves in the same manner as he did when he was a child. He still believes that his mother is alive somewhere, albeit missing, as he does not recall the trauma that occurred when he was 18 years old. The regression has caused Gabriele to more or less become a child in a grown man's body, and it is usually very apparent by his demeanor.
