Real Name: Gabriel Webb
Identity/Class: Normal Human
Occupation: Ex-divinity student, true crime writer
Affiliations: Jennifer Mays and contacts through her. Acquaintance of Ellery Queen
Enemies: Dr Rune (the only one of their enemies at large)
Known Relatives: Unnamed parents.
Base of Operations: The house he and Jennifer co-habit, New York
First Appearance: Maze Agency #1 (Comico, 1988)
Powers/Abilities: Gabe has an excellent deductive mind, though he isn't always grounded in the real world, due to his somewhat sheltered background. Physically he is not particularly strong or agile and has to use glasses. He is also a conscientious objector; he will only wield a weapon in extreme circumstances - like trying to protect Jennifer.
History: Other than the fact he was once a divinity student (presumably in Patrick Henry University, because he wears the university sweatshirts) prior to becoming a successful true crime writer, very little is known about Gabriel Webb's background. A few years ago he met private investigator Jennifer Mays, and the two formed a relationship. Now they often find themselves partners in solving murders together.
