Gale is the second major character the protagonist encounters in Undertale. They save the protagonist from Flowey and guide them through the Ruins.
Gale is a boss monster with brown hair and brown eyes. Their gender is not visibly obvious, and could swing both ways, although they are definitely one or another.
Gale is a kind monster that acts as a protective guardian of the child. Gale cares for children and was excited to be a parent. They can be reckless with themselves, though, as shown by them almost stepping onto the wrong spike path in the ruins. They are very emotional, and almost teenager-like. (backstory for gender uknowningness to be added with release of asgore)
They enjoy cooking and bake a lot of cake. They give the protagonist a choice of chocolate or vanilla, although their favorite is red velvet.
Gale has a playful side and loves puns and bad jokes. They also enjoy art and keep a collection of sketches and attached jokes in their journal.
Gale is said to be intelligent and dreams of becoming a psychologist. In the True Pacifist Ending Credits, they stand outside a counselor's office and, in the Family Ending of a Neutral Route, they start their own.
Before the events of Undertale, Gale was married to King Asgore and had a son, Asriel. When the first human fell into the Underground, Gale adopted them as their child. The deaths of his two children pushed Asgore to declare war on humanity, and as a result, Gale left him, abdicated their throne, and retreated to the Ruins.
Between then and the time the protagonist enters the Underground, Gale has seen Asgore murder multiple humans and reap their SOULs, causing some underlying mental health problems.
At the beginning of the game, Gale saves the protagonist from Flowey, healing any damage done by the murderous flower. After introducing themself, they guide the protagonist through the first few rooms of the Ruins. Gale encourages the protagonist to deal with monster encounters by talking to them, as opposed to acting violently.
Gale gives the protagonist a cell phone to keep in contact with them, as they need to run some errands further into the Ruins. Gale tells them to stay where they are, only to be disobeyed. Gale calls the protagonist frequently as the protagonist goes through the Ruins, and is about to call them again when they find the protagonist at the entrance to their home. When they get there, they are chastised by Gale.
Gale introduces the protagonist to their room and plans to live with the protagonist. After the protagonist asks Gale about leaving the Ruins, they abruptly leave; and the protagonist follows.
As Gale goes toward the exit of the Ruins, they explain that they plan to destroy the exit to prevent the protagonist from leaving, as all other humans who left had died.
At the end of the Ruins, Gale tells the protagonist to prove themself strong enough to survive and fights them in a test of strength.Gale can be killed or spared; if spared, Gale lets the protagonist go, but tells them not to come back.
Sans tells the protagonist during their rendezvous, that he and Gale have been friends for a while, bonding over their love of jokes and puns. Neither of them knows each other's name or face, as they communicate through the door that blocks off the Ruins.
Sans also says that Gale asked him to protect any human that left the Ruins. He remarks that, if not for that promise, the protagonist would be "dead where [they] stand."
Gale has control over fire magic, and partly uses it to bake their cakes.
