Rise up and Fight

Gabe Sid Mikayla Jack Ukkon

Gabriel “Gabe” Diaz

Gabe Diaz was a decorated Lieutenant Colonel in the Pendulum Wars, and his tactical brilliance was key to the COG victory over the UIR at the Battle of Gatka Ridge. But victory came at a tremendous cost, and Gabe refused to put his skills to work for the COG any longer, busting himself down to Sergeant. When the COG calls Gabe – now a mechanic in the motor pool – back into action on the eve of the Hammer strikes against the Locust, he has no choice but to follow orders, and uncovers a dire new threat to the people of Sera.
