This article is meant to give a deeper and more detailed look at the relationship between siblings Alex Chen and Gabe Chen and its development throughout Life is Strange: True Colors.

Life is Strange: True Colors

Chapter 1: Side A

Gabe welcomes Alex after she arrives in Haven Springs. After Alex hugs him or gives him a handshake, Gabe reveals that he works at a bar called the Black Lantern and lives in an apartment above it. A blue aura then appears around Gabe (which is only visible to Alex) as Alex can then hear Gabe's thoughts expressing how much he missed her. After Alex comments on this, the siblings then head into town. They stop at a flower shop called Lethe Flowers where they meet one of its owners, Eleanor Lethe, who happily greets Alex. The two then head inside where they meet Riley Lethe, Eleanor's granddaughter. After a brief talk, Alex helps Gabe pick out some flowers for Charlotte Harmon, his girlfriend, as an apology gift. After picking a bouquet of flowers (sunflowers or lily-of-the-valley), Gabe talks to Riley about her boyfriend Mac Loudon. After buying the flowers, the two then leave the shop afterwards and head to a nearby building called The Silver Dragon, which is where Charlotte works. Gabe then goes into the Silver Dragon, leaving Alex outside. Gabe later finds Alex talking to Ryan Lucan in the Rocky Mountain Record Traders. After talking about Ryan and Gabe's friendship, Ryan tells Gabe that Mac wants to have a word with him. Alex and Gabe then leave, with Ryan promising to come see them later after he finishes carrying out Steph's job.

After some conversations with Ethan (with Alex having the option to tell Gabe about Ethan's plan to explore the mines) and Jed, they reach Gabe's apartment, where Gabe reveals that he plans to give it to Alex while he stays with Charlotte. After dancing to music, they are interrupted by Mac, who beats up Gabe when he incorrectly believes that he is trying to take Riley away from him. This causes Alex to uncontrollably attack Mac, which prompts Gabe to try to stop Alex, who accidentally punches Gabe before finally coming to her senses. When Alex tries to apologize, Gabe says that it's okay while Mac storms off, calling Alex insane. While spending time on the roof, Alex can tell Gabe about her powers or her past. When Ryan informs them of Ethan's disappearance, they head for the mines to find him. If Alex told Gabe earlier, he will realize this. If she didn't, she will tell Gabe now, who won't be pleased that Alex did not tell him earlier. Arriving there, they split up to reach the silo behind the warehouse, which Alex learns where Ethan is heading. Gabe also remembers the planned blast for tonight and tries to warn those who are operating it. They find Ethan on a small cliff on the other side of a ravine. Because he and Ryan are too heavy to walk across the fallen tree leading to the other side, they have Alex do it and tie a rope around him and Alex while using a tree stump as a fulcrum. After Ethan's rescue, the blast goes off and a falling rock hits Gabe, knocking him over the cliff, with Ryan being forced to cut the rope as the avalanche crushes Gabe.

Chapter 5: Side B

In the first of the three flashbacks, Gabe and Alex are seen sitting in a hospital. Gabe later appears next to Alex while she is talking to Wendy, explaining that this is not how it happened and the flashback restarts. In the second flashback, Gabe argues with John before they go outside. Gabe interrupts Alex while she is listening to music, saying that the argument is not what she thinks. After the flashback repeats itself, Alex tries to calm him and John down, but is unsuccessful as John abandons them. In the third and final flashback, Gabe leads Alex to a trunk that's bathed under moonlight. After Alex experiences more of her past, Gabe encourages her to stand up and fight no matter how painful life can be.

At the end of the chapter, Gabe tells Alex what will happen if she chooses to stay in Haven Springs. After these future visions and Alex's final choice to either stay or leave, Gabe disappears.
