Gideon, Father of Men is a dragon and the foster father of Joash Zircon, who was a supporter of humanity. A warrior poet of human mannerisms and posture as well as exceptional conduct who fought bare-fisted, he used a book of human sorcery named Joshua to aid him in battle, rarely ever making use of his actual magic. He turned on his own kin when he deemed them too unreasonable and selfish, then creating dragon slaying magic and teaching it to humans so they could protect themselves from dragons.
He was one of the leading dragons of the rebellion and one of the strongest of his time, standing on equal footing with the Dragon King himself. He was widely respected even after his defection due to his military, philosophical and magical accomplishments. His current whereabouts are unknown.
