SPECIES: Human/?
AGE: 26
HEIGHT: 5'11

INTERESTS: He enjoys the theater and has acted in a number of productions since he was in High School.

One of his favorite hobbies is spending time in the holodeck, but he also enjoys playing chess, tennis and swiming.

In addition, he is an avid reader of everything from professional psychlogy journals, to the Bible, to thriller novels from around the galaxy and almost any other thing all with equal enthusiasm.

He has been on debate teams through out his scholastic career.
FAMILY HISTORY: Gideon's father is unknown. His mother was a human who was killed while fleeing the Romulan Neutral Zone during a severe ion storm. A Federation ship, the USS Exeter was patrolling the area and caught in the same ion storm. They were able to transport both Gideon and his mother aboard the Exeter before the ship carrying them was destroyed. The pilot of the vessel, which may or may not have been Gideon's father was not so lucky. His body was never recovered.

His mother was just barely alive when she was brought aboard and there was nothing the Exeter medical staff could do to save her. With her dying breath she named him Gideon. At first he was known on board ship as Gideon X (for X-factor/mystrey), but would later take the surname Exeter in honor of the ship that rescued him.

No one on the Exeter wanted to see him placed in an orphange so he spent his formative years on board ship.

No one knows if his abilities(which manifested shortly after puberty)had something to do with his unknown father, the ion storm or some other cause. Scans of his DNA appear to be fully human, but there are some anomonlies that make the results inconclusive.

While Gideon loved have preferred to stay on board and could have completed his education there, it was decided that it would be best for him to spend time on earth with kids around his own age.

Growing up on the Exeter coupled with his unique abilities allowed him to grow up and mature more quickly. So with the help of the Exeter's captain petinioning Star Fleet and the civilan authorities on earth, he was declared an emanicpated minor when he turned 15 and was allowed to live on his own.

He did a lot of research on the ship's computers and decided he wanted to move to the Phoenix Arizona area (he hates the cold)and was dropped of there when the Exeter was stationed there for a refit, on Gideon's sixteenth birthday.
