After becoming a surgeon out of medical school, Gideon went on a medical missions trip to Venezuela, where he was kidnapped by guerrillas. In captivity, he met Joshua Omer and was experimented on by Dr. Jeremiah Ashcroft. These experiments gave Gideon the power to project light energy from his body and sense the emotions of others. Using these powers, Gideon became the vigilante known as the Seraph to protect Sojourn City from crime lord Luca Serban. But being a vigilante was not enough for long, and Gideon would have to learn how to become a superhero and lead a team if he was going to save more than just his city.
