Gabriel Harris, better known as "Gabe", is a comic-adapted and main character in the Novel Series first encountered in The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor. He is an overweight member of Woodbury and one of The Governor's most trusted allies.
Nothing is known about Gabe's life prior to or as the outbreak began. It is possible that he was a resident in Woodbury before the outbreak began.
Gabe, along with Bruce Cooper, were one of the first people to welcome Philip Blake and his group to Woodbury. When Brian Blake killed Major Gene Gavin, Gabe saw him as a leader and followed his every command, becoming a loyal soldier to The Governor.

Gabe, like Bruce Cooper, was very loyal to The Governor. He was one of his right-hand men, and one of his closest friends. The two were seen together planning on means to eliminate the prison survivors, although it was shown that The Governor didn't respect Gabe as much as Bruce Cooper (usually beating/threatening Gabe whenever he questioned his orders). The Governor was also very angry when Gabe had lied about killing Michonne. Nevertheless, The Governor seemed visibly shocked when he witnessed Gabe's death.
Even though Nick found Bruce and Gabe threatening in the beginning, he came to trust them, and moved into Woodbury.

Bruce and Gabe were The Governor's right-hand men and were often seen together, they were also shown to be friends when Philip, Brian and Nick arrive at Woodbury, talking and joking while constructing the walls around the town. They would at times battle each other in the Arena, mocking and messing around with each other to give the audience a good show. After Bruce was killed, Gabe was angry and expressed to The Governor how they killed Bruce when The Governor ordered to hold off the attack, showing that he cared for Bruce.
Gabe and Lilly had a decent friendship. After Gabe almost gets killed by a horde of walkers, he is saved by Lilly, making him respect the lady more. He even stands up for her when Bruce asks who made her the surrogate leader of Woodbury.
- Gabe's full name was revealed in The Fall of the Governor novel. In the comics, he was only referred to as Gabe.
