"Stop breaking my ship!"
Gideon suffers from asthma so his endurance suffers. years of repairing ships and hauling heavy equipment has made him stronger and more agile than he looks.
pale skin, blue eyes and blond, unkempt hair
Gideon wear a jumpsuit wired with a computer rig that can interface with most terminals. He wears a faded bomber-style jacket over the jumpsuit because it has sentimental significance.
Gideon was born on Helios space station, deep in Union territory. His parents were technicians for the station, helping keep it spaceworthy and functional. As it was a military station important for resupply and repairs, Gideon grew up around military and civilian spacecraft.
Gideon grew up working on general maintenance the ships and the station and would have probably ended up spending his whole life on Helios if he hadn't met W.A.D.E.
Gideon received no formal education past high school. He is mostly self taught in the disciplines of engineering and computer science. Gideon is a prodigy in these fields.
Gideon's only really official "job" was working alongside his family as a space station tech. Now he is the ship's engineer for the Irritated Badger.
saving the lives of the crew more times than he can count
Gideon is an engineering and computer genius. he is skilled at repairs and hacking.
as long as you're not hurting anyone or causing massive property damage, do whatever.

Towards Dr. Arthur Ezekiel III
They met when Gideon needed to escape Helios station quickly and offered his services as an engineer.
Towards Web-based Artificial Digital Entity (W.A.D.E.)
Gideon rescued W.A.D.E. after Gideon was working on a ship's systems that W.A.D.E. was inhabiting. They got to talking and W.A.D.E. confided to Gideon that he feels despair over his role as a weapon for the Union Space Corps. Gideon, believing that all sentient beings deserve to forge their own destiny, Downloaded W.A.D.E. and escaped from Helios station aboard the Irritated Badger.
