Gideon has always been an unassuming individual, even in life. He is generally soft spoken until it's time to not be. Even then, losing his temper will result more in heavier sarcasm or insults rather than a screaming match.

about
It took Gideon a while to get comfortable with the idea of being a reaper. The good news is, he's had quite a while to adjust to the idea. Now? Now he takes it as seriously as he takes anything. It's a service over which he has been given responsibility, questioning 'why' would be pointless. The only problem with living what would seem to be an immortal life, he's had plenty of time to grow less tolerant of stupidity in his formerly fellow humans. Granted, he still has compassion, and holds out hope that there is plenty of goodness in the world, he just has less tolerance for perceived idiocy. Many see him as laid back and unemotional. He's gentle, kind, patient, generous and understanding, until, at least, he feels that an individual simply no longer deserves it. He is fond of giving advice, usually when asked, but sometimes when not. He is, after all, bound to be an observer, however, the thing about advice is that people are free to ignore it.
Quirks, dislikes & likes
Likes: Order, routine, comfort, conversations.

Dislikes: Disorder, interruptions of routine, discomfort, pointless conversations.

Quirks: He is particularly fond of showtunes, and despite the fact that he is no longer able to enjoy it, he has the same meal prepared for him every morning, even if it's just to look at it until it's eventually taken away. None of the employees at his restaurant ever question it, just assuming he is watching his health.

history
Gideon was born in 1875 to a modest but happy home in Los Angeles. Strict parents, both in their faith and their child-rearing, Gideon learned early on the benefits of education, both worldly and religiously. His family was certain that he would enter the seminary to become a rabbi, and Gideon was well on the way down that path. He developed a reputation for wise mediation in conflicts large and small, and didn't make friends as much as developed several acquaintances. He met his wife, Rachel, one morning while eating in his favorite corner diner, noticing that they had ordered the exact same thing. Every morning, the two of them would repeat this tradition, ordering a waffle, fried potatoes, toast, two eggs over easy, and coffee, black, and sweetened.

He found comfort in the routine his life had become. Maintaining his studies while working as a cobbler, his reputation continued, many coming into his shoe shop not to have their shoes repaired but to ask his advice on a problem they were having. People appreciated the fact that he did not let personal feelings or fear of causing offense to get in the way of what he considered the impartial truth, and Gideon never stopped feeling honored that people trusted his opinions enough to seek his advice. In many ways, he took this more seriously than he took his work in the shoe store.

Rachel gave birth, in 1925, to their daughter Hannah, though unfortunately died soon after from complications. Gideon saw no point in remarrying, he had too much to worry about: his studies, his job, and now raising his daughter. This, however, would not last very long. In 1927, Gideon was murdered by a man who's wife had left him, reportedly due to the advice of Gideon himself. Even as he lay dying, he could not help but note the satisfaction that his suggestion that she leave her husband based upon his violent nature was, obviously, the wiser choice. Hannah went to live with her Uncle Ruben, growing up with few memories, but many stories of her father.

Imagine his surprise when the afterlife didn't seem much like what he was expecting. There he was, still on Earth. His reputation had gotten more noticed than even he suspected, and had been reaped accordingly to become the same: a Reaper. He at first balked at the idea. Why him? Why could he not enjoy the promised paradise, to be reunited with his wife? Wasn't it enough that he had lost her, and been taken at an early age with a young daughter to worry about, now he was cursed to roam the Earth? Always one to listen to reason, the explanation for why he was chosen, and what the responsibilities of a Reaper entailed had him seeing it from, perhaps, a different point of view. Maybe not a curse, but a burden, and one that carried import in the world. It took a few years, but eventually Gideon not only accepted his new task, but began to, if not enjoy it, at least take it seriously.

For his own sake, he spent several years remaining invisible as he went about his duties, not wishing to cause a stir or confusion, eventually electing to relocate to San Francisco, finding it much less likely to run into his family or friends. He kept a general low profile, made easier by his quiet nature, though for the sake of human companionship would still strike up conversations with strangers in parks, diners, wherever he happened to be during his reflective moments. He took many jobs, mostly for something to do, or to investigate a new skill set. Currently, he is the day manager of a 24 hour diner, Der Waffle Haus, where the breakfast special is, of course, a waffle, fried potatoes, two eggs, toast, and coffee.

Over time, he has gotten to know others in his particular line of work, for only those like him can understand what it is to be one of those like him. The remaining human curiosity still within him caused him to keep up with his family, and on more than one occasion he arranged for money, which he had little need of, to find its way into their path. Never too much, no life-changing fortunes, as Gideon firmly believes in the impartial nature of his task, but some things simply can't be helped, and he saw little harm in a nudge here or there, since it could be argued that the money could just as easily be used in harmful ways, such as substance abuse or excess of some sort. There are always loopholes, after all.
