Designed By: Gabe

First generation U.S.-born Mexican American. Gabriel’s parents and grandparents sacrificed to emigrate to the U.S., where they are all now naturalized U.S. citizens.

The description of Gabe’s design in his own words.

“My Elite Warrior Design is a way to honor my ancestors who have passed away in Mexico, specifically to honor their elite warrior spirit, which I see has been instilled in those who want to receive it.  You are truly elite if you allow your self to be this kind of warrior, one who does not except defeat just as our those ancestors who stayed strong in their battles to give us this life we are now living.”

He’s elite and a sacred creature, in Aztec thought believed to have been present at the birth of the sun (hence, the blackened 'singed' wing tips) and was the symbol of one of the elite warrior orders in Aztec culture.

Designed by: Gabe; San Dimas, CA
