Gabriel started his education at Hogwarts in 1992. Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Gabriel was Sorted into Gryffindorhouse, differently from his parents. During the 1997–1998 school year, even with the flight, and then murder of his father, Gabriel returned to Hogwarts under Snape's regime as hadmaster. Although his father had been hunted by the Ministry of Magic and the Snatchers, Gabriel, as he was a half-blood, did not suffer problems at school (not counting of course with the punishments imposed by the Carrow brothers). During the Battle of Hogwarts, he disobeyed Professor McGonagall and fought for his life and to avenge his father.
