"Burn them out."
―Gideon, to a stormtrooper[src]

Gideon[3] was a human male who served as a soldier in the Galactic Empire before rising through the ranks, becoming a marshal in charge of his own territory. Gideon was complex and very knowledgeable, and sought to bring order. By 9 ABY, he had risen to the position of moff and led his own forces[4] which included death troopers and stormtroopers.[1]

At some point he ordered an Incinerator Stormtrooper to burn a structure. He also piloted a TIE line starfighter over a combat-ravaged surface.[2] As an Imperial officer of high rank, Gideon wore an outfit similar to an Imperial uniform with dark-colored battle armor and a cape.[3]
