* MeaningfulName: It's probably no coincidence that one of the few ''40k'' characters with a Jewish name is enslaved by the Egyptian-inspired Necrons. Also doubles as an IronicName, as [[UsefulNotes/TheMaccabeanRevolt Judas Maccabee]] fought for his people's independence while Thomas Maccabee appears to be [[HappinessInSlavery pretty content with his current condition]].


* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Even if he turns traitor, Tarkus still retains his sensible personality. He even advises the Blood Ravens on tactics and quotes the Codex, as he did when he was on their side. Avitus and Cyrus are not particularily pleased by his behaviour, though.

Gabriel is amongst the greatest heroes of the Chapter and held as the crowning example of the glory of the Blood Ravens' past. During the events of Chaos Rising, he and the Force Commander uncovered the taint of evil within their own Chapter and defeated the Black Legion under Lord Eliphas the Inheritor. Gabriel was branded a renegade for the temerity of standing against the traitors. Now, he gathers his forces for the final climactic showdown with Azariah Kyras, who has thrown in his lot with the very same daemon Gabriel released decades ago

* TookALevelInBadass: In Dawn of War II, the Merciless Strike skill of his was a pain to use. The problem was that he'd go into a protracted wind-up animation before doing a single RazorWind, so most foes would simply wander out of the way. But in Chaos Rising, you can upgrade that skill so that instead of doing a wind-up into a shockwave, he and his fellow assault marines will charge or teleport attack into their opponent for a wide-area knockdown attack. They then immediately follow it up with RazorWind attacks by ALL the members in the party. This practically guarantees that the enemies will be hit and greatly increases the damage. In medium levels of difficulty, this will usually pulverize regular enemies in a single attack.

If fully upgraded in the Dark Crusade campaign, he is essentially an invisible One-Tau weapons platform.

Which is owed to, in no small part, by the fact that he has Lorgar's geneseed. Even Ulkair, a Greater Daemon, is impressed with Eliphas' faithfulness.

* FrontlineGeneral: Sort of. While Ethereals aren't meant to be risking their lives on the battlefield or being in charge of the actual battle, Shi'ores is present on some stronghold levels. In his own stronghold level, he's at the very back of his base, but has greatly boosted HP.

* FlunkyBoss: Three beacons are helping a Tau relief fleet make their way to Kaurava through the Warp storm. If left untouched, the fleet sends a long stream of Tau units at you.
* KeystoneArmy: Like all Ethereals, killing him causes a massive morale loss to the entire Tau army. So massive that they abandon their colonization efforts.
