Far From Home
Don Gabriel Luiz Montoya de Vasquez
Don Gabriel is a man of much influence in Altamira, but not only there. He has friends at court and, maybe even more importantly, among the Inquisition. His enemies have a way of ending up dead or arrested and discredited for crimes against the Church. A fact Marcello can attest to. He and Don Gabriel have a long and not very friendly relationship. Part of it comes from the time Don Gabriel courted Isabel, but she chose Marcello instead. Part of it comes from Marcello getting in the way of Don Gabriel’s plans. And part of it is just plain dislike at first sight that had plenty of time to turn into hate.
