Role Description

Gabriel Maxson: (Lead) Troy's brother. Gabriel was a soldier in the Second World War, during which he received a head injury that required a metal plate to be surgically implanted into his head. As a result, he receives government checks that Troy used in part to buy the Maxson's home. Gabriel wanders around the neighborhood carrying a basket and singing. He often thinks he is not a person, but the angel Gabriel. He exudes a child-like exuberance and a need to please.
