Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night character

Gebel (ゲベル Geberu?) (pronounced GEH-bill) is the main antagonist in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

He appears as a playable character in the prequel, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. He attacks using a flock of 3 bats.

Official description

Original host for the magi-crystal curse that summons demons to the planet. Gebel was the only one to survive its effects at such a high level. He destroyed the guild that created him, but in doing so realized he was no longer human and had no place on Earth. This in turn, lead him to summon the demon castle from hell to appear on the planet.
It is said that his real purpose in summoning the castle was to give Miriam a place of her own, but as his Magi-crystal disease progressed, he soon forgot his own reasoning. The more he surrounded himself with hell-spawn, the quicker the magi-crystals engulfed his body. He continues to plot the downfall of man, and how to best convince (or use) Miriam to achieve his dark ambition.

Design

IGA asked the designers to make the coloring for Gebel feature red, and explained that his vision of Gebel was that his body was almost completely overtaken by the magi-crystals. At first his design had more clothing, but this was changed as IGA thought Gebel would be open about showing people his crystal skin. The mask was added because IGA imagined that Gebel’s face was the very last thing to be engulfed by the magi-crystals, and it helped evoke the sense that he was too late to stop it.[4]
