Role: Wildcard or Damage--unsure as to the best fit.
Gabriel can change and modify his body, enhancing his physical capabilities. He doesn't have the ability to completely change into a different man--or woman--or to change to an animal form, but he can change his own appearance to a degree. He can thread silver into his dark hair, can trace lines in his forehead and at the corners of his eyes, can bend his spine with supposed age. Conversely, he can appear as a young man in his late teens. He cannot change his mass; he can't make himself taller or shorter, thinner or fatter.
The form that he considers his true form is a terrifying combination of man and nightmare. From the base of his neck to his waist, Gabriel has four sets of tentacles ranging from small and fine to the last set, nearly as thick as his arms. They are retractable, disappearing into his body via openings on either side of his spine. When they are fully retracted, Gabriel's back looks normal save for what appears to be slanted, parallel scars on either side of his spine, each about three inches long--the bottom set are nearly twice that length--and slightly raised. These "scars" are actually openings for the tentacles housed within him. The tentacles are of varying length as well; the smallest upper pair nearly are two feet long in extension, graduating to the lowest pair, which are a bit more than six feet (each tentacle) fully stretched. All are the same color, an iridescent black-green, and are sucker-less, soft and warm, sensitive to touch. They are all prehensile and obedient to Gabriel's will. As Gabriel is lean, he has no idea how everything fits inside him without showing outwardly as lumps or bulges; he says he's a Tardis in the flesh.
Strength: Gabriel is very strong; he's learned well how to hide it, appear as any other man. His tentacles, particularly the biggest, can pick up and throw cars, rip doors out of buildings, pull someone or something limb from limb--the amount of sheer damage he can inflict is startling.
Gabriel is able to survive and adapt to underwater environments, being able to breathe water in lieu of, or along with, a gaseous breathing medium, to swim well and to endure high water pressure and extreme water temperatures. He is able to use his senses to perceive normally regardless of the distortion/pressure of the water, including ignoring various impurities that would otherwise reduce the visibility.
Speed: Even in human form, he's quicker, faster than a man. In his water form, he's sleek, sinuous, flexible, almost as if he's boneless, and quicker than even the fastest creature in the ocean. He can't fold time and space to travel somewhere instantaneously, but he'll get where he needs to be faster than anyone would think possible.
Water, come to me: Gabriel can call the water (think Arwen, in LoTRs) to him. He can't command huge bodies, like whipping stretches of the ocean into a massive storm, but rivers and lakes respond to his call. He can't call storms, but can form waterspouts and small localized disturbances, like rain.
Gabriel has been with the program since the age of fifteen, when his powers manifested; he's a veteran of the Corps and has seen many come and go.
I'll expand on his powers and weaknesses in his bio.
