Gabiru first appears to be a young and overconfident lizardman who is proud to be the first-named warrior in his tribe as he expresses annoyance at his father for not addressing him with it.
Despite this, however, Gabiru holds his father in high regard and sees him as a proud and noble chieftain of the lizardmen and actually inherited quite a few qualities from him. Like Abiru, he is brave, loyal to his followers and kinsmen, as well as a natural leader gaining loyal subordinates who hold him in higher regard than Abiru himself.
Despite his natural talents, however, his ego is swelled and easily manipulated, as both the honest praise from his subordinates as well as Laplace's manipulations, he was led to believe that he had no choice but to take over the tribe from his aging father in order to save the lizardmen.
After the battle with the Orc Lord and putting his people in jeopardy, Gabiru was humbled and took the full blame for his treason and was willing to accept execution with grace, only pleading to spare his men.
Gabiru was used by Gelmud, his most trusted person, to satisfy his own gains to turn the Orc Lord into a demon lord.
Gabiru was exiled for his treason. Furthermore, forbidden to ever call himself a lizardman and forbidden to ever return.
