Biography[edit | edit source]

Gabriel Collins was the younger brother of Charles Collins and lived at the stately family mansion known as Collinwood in the early 19th century. Gabriel Collins was married to a woman named Angelique, but little did he know that his wife was actually a witch – well-versed in the art of black magic.

Angelique Collins quickly grew unsatisfied with her marriage to Gabriel and used her powers to seduce Gabriel’s older brother, Charles. Gabriel eventually discovered his wife’s infidelity, as well as the fact that she was trafficking in supernatural powers. This begat a fight between Charles and he that would forever shatter the bonds of brotherhood (not to mention his marriage).

After his fight with Charles, Gabriel contacted a local clergyman named Reverend Strack. He told Strack that Angelique was a witch who had bewitched his brother. Angelique was captured and executed on the grounds of the Collinwood estate.
