Gideon is an empath. He was a cocky nineteen year old when he met his first sheva, Juliette Pemberton. When Dante Sinclair saw Gideon with her, he immediately killed her. Gideon was devastated and vowed that her death would not be in vain. He shut down his emotions and allowed no one but his blood brothers Elijah Ross and Quinn Masters to know of his pain. Over the centuries, this gave him the reputation of a cold-blooded killer.
