PERSONALITY
------------------------------------------------------------

    STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES:S—Intelligent, CalculatingS—Strongwilled—he will survive.  S—Skilled at Persuasion and DeceptionS—Excels in Black Arts and in potionsS—Charming, and CharismaticS—Skilled at acting and performing—his best performances are being the ‘knight in shining armor’ romantic, but its never genuine.S—Self driven, self motivatedS—knowledge of birds of prey, and ability to train and handle them.W—Doesn’t have much genuine empathy for othersW—VainW—Can be womanizingW—Compulsive about the things he personally wants.W—Spends, sometimes a lot, on the finer thingsW—Uses the trappings of elegance almost as theater staging to help him get what he wantsW—Is largely closed except to a very few others, Doesn’t trust anyone but himself except on rare occasion.LIKES & DISLIKES:+ black onyx and yellow gold+elegant fabrics—silks, brocades, satins, cashmeres+cigarettes, alcohol, +old books, especially on the dark arts and potions+the smell of leather+storms+sex,+his dogs and his birds+his mother--his father--the odd little club of people his father used to hang with.  Gideon witnessed too many bizarre rituals and activities of these people, and he doesn’t understand who they are or what they’re about, but he doesn’t’ like their peculiar love for cruelty and viciousness towards others.--lower classes of people--parties, crowds--being ‘authentic’ around anyone else--having to delay or postpone something he wants--rules and restrictions that hinder him getting what he wants--anything of cheap quality--romanceGOALS: The first directive Gideon has is survival.  Beyond anything else.  After that, Gideon’s philosophy is more is more.  Whatever he wants at that moment, that’s his goal.HABITS & QUIRKS: He wears a black onyx ring that he spins on his finger—especially when he’s bored, but it can also be when he’s growing frustrated.  BOGGART: True intimacyPATRONUS: a childhood memory of his mother, when he was small.  A night time storm had awakened him, and he’d dashed down the long hallway to his mother’s room and had climbed up on her lap.  She had wrapped her large shawl around him too, and told him how very much he was loved.DEMENTOR: Being horsewhipped by his father.  It happened often, but the worst time was when he had broken his grandfather’s pocket watch when he was playing with it.VERITASERUM:The true Gideon is massively insecure and wants to be accepted by others. He just doesn’t believe he will ever be good enough for that to happen. Gideon also never talks about the severe beatings he took from his father.  His father often called him an “insolent, evil boy.” Gideon, beyond all else, is a survivor.MIRROR OF ERISED: True IntimacyPERSONALITY: Gideon is dark and intense.  He broods a lot, he’s introspective.  He still lives in his childhood home—a castle on a rocky coastal area.  Its dark, ancient place, and the place is dark and has a slightly Gothic feel.  Its where Gideon feels at home.  He retreats here, and he lets few in.  He doesn’t interact much with the house elves.  He walks the grounds with his dogs, or hunts.  He prefers traditional manor life. He intends for no one to know him that well.  He’s a distant aristocrat.  He knows how to be social, but he is far better with people one-on-one.  Or in a business situation.

------------------------------------------------------------
FAMILY & POSSESSIONS
------------------------------------------------------------

    FATHER:Luther Pierce, age 65, lives now in Maiorca, retired from the Ministry Department of MysteriesMOTHER:Helena Jane Pierce, age 65, lives in Maiorca, socialiteSIBLING/S:Gideon has other siblings, but he never met them.  They were older, he thinks.  His mother kept a hope chest that she had to hide from Luther.  It had things in it from the other children.  He has never found out how many siblings he has or what happened to them, but he believes his father is directly responsible for their absence from their lives.  OTHER: His wife is Melinda nee Driscol. She is 3 years younger than he is. He has an aunt, Aunt Agatha, who is a very hard cored dark arts practitioner.  He visits her rarely because she’s a bit too sea hag-ish even for his likings, but she dotes on him and would do anything for him.  BLOOD STATUS: His family has been masquerading as purebloods for centuries, but they’re halfbloods, and there is usually one squib born into every generation someplace.  The squibs are usually ‘marketted’ off into muggle adoptions as quickly as their lack of magic is discovered. Or at least that’s what Gideon was always told.  RACE: humanSOCIAL STATUS: Wealthy--Gideon's family is an "old money" familyPET/S:There are many animals on the estate—except horses. Gideon won’t keep horses because of the many whippings he took there as a boy.  The stables are largely unused, except a section he’s made into a place for the dogs and for the birds.  There are many dogs though. He has a large pack of hunting dogs, three cats in the manor house, and he has a collection of various birds of prey—owls, hawks, kites, falcons, all types.OTHER POSSESSIONS:optional.  magical artefacts must be claimed through the magical artefacts claim

CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------


    [size=11]Early Years: Gideon was born in the house he now lives in.  He was born upstairs in the top turret room, in a maid’s bed because his father could not bear the sounds of childbirth or the mess it made in the master bedroom.  His father had not wanted him.  His father hated him, and Gideon knew it well almost before he could walk.  He has always figured that somehow his mother kept him from disappearing like his siblings, but he's not sure why or how she managed it.  His father was a cruel man, and while he was well and deeply loved by his mother, Gideon figured out at a small age that he had been the product of his father forcing himself onto Gideon’s mother.  That particular behavior happened a lot, and his father rarely even closed the bedroom door.  When he was small, Gideon ran upstairs and hid behind the curtains in the window wells of the large oak staircases.  He would crouch into a ball and cover his ears.  His father drank often, but he didn’t need to be drunk to be cruel.  Luther was often violent not only to Gideon but also to Helena.  And it didn’t seem to take any particular reason for Luther to need to take the horsewhip to his son.  He was left often to his own devices to protect himself.Hogwarts Years He was deeply relieved when the Hogwarts letter came. His father had intended to send him to Durmstrang, but the Hogwarts letter came first. His mother bundled him off to stay with his Aunt Agatha because she lived closer to London, or so she said.  Gideon knew it was to keep him from being sent to Durmstrang.  And once he was on the train, it was the first in his life he felt like he could breathe.  He became viciously angry.  It hadn’t taken the sorting hat any real struggle to place him in Slytherin, but that wasn’t really who Gideon dreamed of being.  He dreamed of being the righteous Gryffindor.  Being a Slytherin made him feel even more unacceptable, at least at first.  It took him awhile to make friends even in his own house. He had trouble in classes, trouble out of classes.  He had a mentor in Severus Snape during his first few years there.  Snape was left to deal, as his head of house, with Gideon’s rage and his rebellion.  Snape had a way to taking him in hand without being the vicious man Luther had been, and helped the young boy get a footing in the school.  As a child, Gideon secretly idolized Snape and when Snape died, it was the first time Gideon had genuinely grieved.  And, thus far, its been his last too.  He took every class Snape taught, spent hours in the potions lab to try to please Snape, and eagerly did whatever Snape ever asked of him..Adult Years When Gideon graduated from Hogwarts, he returned, reluctantly, to the family home. The day he got home, he found his father having his way with his mother one more time, and Gideon, no longer a boy, snatched up the horsewhip and attempted to choke his father with it.  Gideon was now stronger than his father.  He bullied him into taking a potion that he had been brewing—a formula he’d found in the restricted section of the library at school.  The potion seemed to fracture off part of Luther’s personality—at least the aggressive part.  It hadn’t been what Gideon had wanted. He had wanted it to utterly destroy his father.  His mother, though, begged him to do no more.  Helena could take no more of living in the dismal house.  She made the choice to relocate out of the house and, finding now that Luther needed a caretaker, she took him along. Luther largely lives in a carriage house on the grounds, cared for by house elves, and Helena is, finally, free. She lives in her light and airy beach house, and is enjoying finally friends and suitors.  Gideon is pleased that she is happy, although he rarely sees her now.  He continues to live in the house he grew up in. Gideon married Melinda Driscol as a calculated move. There wasn't any love involved. He needed the information that Melinda had in the Department of Mysteries, and she needed his money. He was rather pleased to find out she didn't have any more scruples than he did. [/b][/b]
