Gabriel "HeRoMaRinE" Segat (often abbreviated to simply Marine) is a Terran player from Germany, currently playing for mousesports. He's also sometimes called "Big G" or "Big Gabe" by casters, friends and people in the german SC2-community. It is a reference to his first name, Gabriel.
HeRoMaRinE is a German StarCraft II professional who started out playing StarCraft: Brood War until he switched to the StarCraft II Beta and played Protoss.
