Gates is a priest who works in the chapel at Suffolk County hospital who was dying; Bishop found him and turned him into a vampire. He took this as a message that God gave him a second chance. He then became one of Bishop's henchmen. At the hospital, he turned a dying man turning him into a vampire. Aidan found out about this an confronted him in the chapel. Aidan tried to convince him what he was doing was wrong and when he denied this, Aidan yanked out his teeth. He returned to Bishop and he was disappointed to learn that vampire fangs don't grow back. He was taken away and never seen again.
