It was hard for me, because my character, this one in particular doesn't know the amount as me masquerading him. In a sense, I feel extremely limited because apart from all of my other character's they're broken in and have undergone hell and back. Going off the limited knowledge, experience, etc of Gabriel, he's prone to his youth and naive nature.
What I know and what he knows, there is an omniverse difference in what could be done and what wasn't just because. Another reason why accepting defeat wasn't difficult, because it was well on its way.
