Background

Gabriel Ben Zeev along with his wife Sarah were employed as assistant archeologists by S.A.G.E. in their Angkor Wat facility. These were happy times for the couple, exploring the ruins and unraveling the past alongside their boss Annika Heyerdahl. All this came to an end when Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer. The couple traveled through the mystic gate to Area 51 to meet with Doctor Tokada. However, even with the advanced science of Area 51 it was all futile, the cancer was malignant. They again returned to Angkor Wat to gather their things. Sarah wanted to return to Israel, so she could die in Israel.

It was on the trip to Phnom Penh that disaster struck. A group of Khmer Rouge opened fire upon them as they were crossing over the Pouthisat River. The truck they were driving crashed into the river. Sarah was killed in the crash, and Gabriel was thrown into the river. Gabriel was fished out of the river miles down from the bridge by a little old man who called himself Master Jun.

Master Jun was a deserter from the Chinese army who had been hiding out in Cambodia since the Vietnam war. The old man nursed Gabriel back to health. However, there was little Master Jun could do to help him deal with his loss. So Master Jun started teaching hawk style kung fu. At first Gabriel resisted, but later found comfort in the martial arts. He was to spend several years at Master Jun’s side learning kung fu. When Master Jun felt Gabriel learned all that he could learn from him, the master gave him his “Talon Claw”.

Gabriel, a broken man, returned to Israel, his only comforts were in his martial arts, which he practiced religiously. However, under it all he burned for a desire for revenge against the people who killed Sarah. Enter Mossad. Mossad had learned about Gabriel and recruited him into their organization. After more training he was sent to spy upon the Iraqis.

In Bagdad, Gabriel learned of an alliance between the Saddam Hussain and Fatwa. Gabriel rushed back to Israel where the prime minister called for the formation of a Uber force to counter the raise of Fatwa and even Five Pillars. As a reward, Gabriel was given a prototype combat suit that Bloom International had designed and given the code name: Desert Falcon. Now Gabriel would be able to pay back the kind of people who killed his Sarah.

Personality

Gabriel is a devoted man. Once his devotion was to his wife; whom he still misses dearly, but now he has a new mistress and her name is Justice. His foes are terrorists and those who threaten the security of the State of Israel. As Desert Falcon, he’ll go to any lengths to achieve his goals.

In addition to his desire for justice, is an equal desire to see that Israel continues as a nation. While Gabriel rails for change in the Middle East it is only to strengthen Israel so that the nation can stand up against all the enemies that stand against her. Gabriel would gladly lay down his own life for his country.

Quote

“Your days of terrorism are over villain.”

Powers

Desert Falcon wears a specially designed suit that allows him to fly without making a sound. The suit also enhances the wearer's vision and hearing. With his enhanced senses Desert Falcon can anticipate attacks by foes. The flying suit is reinforced and proves protection for the wearer. The hood of the suit has built-in polarized lenses that protect Desert Falcon from most flash attacks. Desert Falcon has armed himself with a weapon that he calls the “Talon Claw”. The claw is a weighted blade shaped like an eagle's talon at the end of a strong cable. Desert Falcon can fling the blade at his foes and easily retrieve it using the cable.

Desert Falcon has trained in hawk style kung fu from his days with Master Jun. He’s able to use his “Talon Claw” with his martial arts. The “Talon Claw” is very similar to a kyogetsu shoge.

Appearance

Desert Falcon wears a skin-tight black and brown body suit. A pair of transparent wings are attached to the back of the body suit. The costume is hooded to cover most of Desert Falcon's head except for his face. The hood is shaped to look like a falcon's head and casts his face in a constant shadow. Gabriel has dark colored hair and brown eyes, and has a dusky Mediterranean complexion. When not in his Desert Falcon guise, Gabriel poses as a social activist.
