I've always wondered: How well does Gideon whip it?

I believe he whips it good. : )

Unlike most Planeswalkers, Gideon doesn’t hesitate to enter combat. This powerful white mage is driven by loyalty and practices hieromancy, the magic of holy justice.

Gideon’s strong morals and sense of duty have served him well as an agent for the Order of Heliud, an organization that sought to bring law to the plane of Regatha. When the pyromancer Chandra Nalaar became an obstacle to the Order’s goals, they sent Gideon to intercept her on the plane of Kephalai. She was attempting to steal—for a second time—a powerful fire spell with a map to the Eye of Ugin, hidden away on the plane of Zendikar.

Never before had Gideon’s quarry been so crafty, resourceful, and elusive. On Kephalai, Gideon briefly apprehended her, but she escaped. Tracking her down to on the dark plane of Diraden, he then became Chandra’s unlikely ally as the two joined forces to escape the predations of the plane’s vampire ruler, Velrav.

Only on returning to Regatha did Chandra learn that Gideon served the Order and that she would have to surrender to prevent her adopted home from being destroyed. With Gideon’s help, Chandra survived this persecution, giving him reason to question the Order’s true motives. It wasn’t long before she departed again, once more in search of the Eye of Ugin.

After some soul searching, Gideon decided to follow Chandra to Zendikar, believing he could help her stay alive on that treacherous, unpredictable plane. By the time he arrived, Chandra was gone and Zendikar was under siege from the ancient world-eating beings known as the Eldrazi. Now Gideon searches the Multiverse for allies to help him save Zendikar from being consumed.

Dear Chandra, (Part Two in the LTK’s planeswalker letters series)

Dear Chandra,

I suppose this letter will never reach you, or at least I don’t expect it to. There as so many words, so many things that I want to say, and things I wish I could’ve done differently or tried to have done, but it seems the multiverse had other plans. I’ve done many, many bad things in my life, and have tried to make up for it. Even when I joined the Order, I thought I was doing good for others, but I was deceived.

This wasn’t the first time I had been lied to and used, nor do I expect it to be the last. However, never would I ever want to put you in harm’s way. Had I known the outcome of all of this and the intent of the Order, the things that happened on Ragatha, I would’ve done something. But, sadly, what is done is done. Never in my life have I ever met someone as amazing as you, and all the time we spent together, are the moments I want back. Even if we are running or fighting for our lives, I enjoyed all of our moments together.

There was this time that we were just sitting and watching the sun on Regatha, and I watched how the sun hit your hair and reflected in your eyes. Your hair was emblazed with the light of the sun and it was like sitting next to a warm fire. I swore that something had sent you to me, and you always had a golden flame to you, it was like looking at an angel. In that moment, I fell in love with you. I’ve met plenty of women, and most have feigned for my affection, except you.

You always had an aloof nature and were care free and always smiling, no matter what. You always found the fun in some things and your love for freedom was to be admired. I loved that about you, and I miss you, Chandra. There were many things I wanted to say to you, and my timidness prevented that. I fear I’ve lost my chance at happiness, and I wanted to make you happy and to love you better than any other man could possibly ever could. This damned forsaken multiverse is so tragic and it appears that wherever we go, death, destruction and misery follows us.

I hope you can forgive me, and any ill feelings I have caused you. I hope I’m not seen as an enemy, and if we ever meet again, we can be friends and see where it goes. I love you, Chandra, and hope you’re doing well. Hopefully we can meet again, I’ll always love you and I will find you.

With love,

Gideon
