Gabe Reyes was the brother of Roberto Reyes. The pair lived in Doomstadt and on an exceptionally hot day, Gabe opened a fire hydrant at Doomrock Heights to freshen up; however, by doing so, Gabe broke one of the laws of God Doom and caught the attention of a D.P.D. Patrol Bot. When the Patrol Bot tried to arrest Gabe, Robbie intervened and it was then that the Patrol Bot detected a Igniter Spirit within him and called for reinforcements, the Thors. Soon afterwards, Robbie and some of his friends were arrested by them.

Robbie was taken to the Killiseum, where he was informed that he was possessed by an Igniter Spirit and that from that moment on, he would be forced to race in Arcade's Ghost Races just like the others possessed.[1] After winning one more race, Robbie went to celebrate his victory with Gabe in the Jekyll & Hyde Club, unknowing that Arcade was planning his death.[2]

After escaping the Ghost Races and other Ghost Racers, Roberto returned to his home, Robbie discovered his brother wasn't there anymore. Desperate, he asked his neighbor Lisa if she had seen him, but she said she hadn't. It was then that he saw Arcade announcing a new racer through Lisa's television. The new racer, to Reyes' surprise was Gabe.[1]

With the race already in progress and his brother at risk of death, Robbie teleported back to the Killiseum, ready to put an end in the Ghost Races. When Arcade unleashed the Venus Compiler to kill his brother, Reyes, who was fighting the Ghost Racers off, used his Penance Stare in Carter Slade to make him release the others from Zadkiel's control, like he did earlier, and they destroyed the robot. Furious by the Spirits' resistance, Zadkiel tried to kill Gabe, but Robbie switched places with him and Eli devoured Zadkiel's soul. Gabe and Roberto escaped along with the other Ghost Racers through another portal opened by Eli, running over an injured Arcade in the process, killing him. Freed, the Ghost Racers vowed to punish the wicked and corrupt with their power, and thus was born the Spirits of Vengeance.[3]

Powers

Gabe had an Igniter Spirit that gave him powers like other Ghost Riders but only demonstrated control of fire.
