Gideon was raised in Imaldriss by his mother, a sorceress of great respect in the Brotherhood of the Black Rose. She taught him the ways of sorcery, and he took to it faster than she did. He is a rare breed of elf, a Star Elf, only one in one million elves are born Star Elves, even if both parents are Star Elves.
As an adolescent, on a journey with his master, they were attacked by an Arcanamach, giving Gideon his first taste of the intolerance of man for magic. He has made it his life goal to become an archmage and spread the tolerance of magic and avenge the death of his master.
As is common of the Valenar, Gideon has white hair, but it is tinged with blue. His eyes are gold and he wears blue robes.
He has been sent by the Brotherhood to aid the Heroes of the Gem in their quest.
