Gorgeous couple! I kind of like the fact that he is blind. I don't know why. But, my favorite cartoon (disney-like) male character is Garrett from 'Quest for Camelot'. There was something about him being blind that made him more endearing.... I don't know. I 'm probably just strange or something. Lol!
There is something in blindness that brings out the best qualities in people. (I love Quest for Camelot by the way xD) Gabriel is blind because even though he is supposed to be stronger than everyone else, more cunning or even more vicious, his blindness made him weaker in everyone else's eyes. His "weakness" made him kind.
