It's funny how inspiration and knowledge can be gleaned from the beyond, especially when you are willing to carve the runes to do so into your skin. Each prana point represents the human psyche. The tree of life, parallel to the tree of knowledge of good and evil, contains the mysteries of the world that were denied to us when Eve ate that forbidden fruit and while augmented by the tree Gideon finds seeing through the enigma that is reality as simple as reading the information itself. Though, as with all mystical nootropics, it is unreliable for its greatest feats of mental alacrity, but then again, even Einstein wasn't at the top of his game every day.

Gideon's eyes alight purple and so do the eyes of his targets, a psychic scream like a crushing weight resounding within the minds of all involved.

Gideon's will dominates the others into submission and crushes them beneath the heel of a mental giant forcing them to capitulate to his will.
Gideon has had reason to practice. Great reason to practice, and his latest gift had been used to push his more finessed psychic abilities to their next zenith. Allowing him to dominate the mind of these rote beasts, their simple minds far easier to command than that of the people around him and besides. It was far less of a risk to expose that you could control the mundane monsters of the world than to dominate the mind of a person, and Gideon has learned through brutal, repeated, lessons that monsters can be just as.. if not far more threatening than any man you could run into. Though in doing so he retains the classical risk of his mind melding into that of his target Gideon is confident that his mental fortitude is greater than that of any thoughtless beast he may encounter.

At the deepest most core level is immutable, your true self remaining even beneath the ravages of cancer, leprosy, and many other horrid maladies.

Born with everything, one would assume that an existence built on privilege would be easy. For Gideon Lockhart. Heir to the Ochre order, a prominent assassin organization that works to destabilize world governments and ensure that conflict exists in perpetuity. A world at peace is, after all, no world where the ochre order prospers.
Thus as the heir he was trained to carry that burden on, but Gideon Lockhart was not the unfeeling death machine an assassin needed to be, and soon he found himself plagued by the nightmares of the victims he was sent to claim and despite his apparent skill and innate talent for the position one day Gideon found himself unable to deal with the position anymore and with the assistance of MS-13 in exchange for elimination of a political target he was able to cut ties and assume the identity of Donovan White, Pediatrician. This alias is the one he has used to advance study of medicine as he has redirected his life towards helping people, and has found significant success in the development of Protolamide, a treatment for bacterial infections that by not relying on traditional antibiotic measures helped prevent the spread of super viruses from ever happening. Though he earned no great fame from the public for developing a preventative measure and his name is but a foot note in a few newer textbooks, the wealth he earns from it now allows him to stay one step ahead of the ochre order and having tasted a touch of what it means to truly change the world Gideon is now hungry for more. Though he knows such hunger could ultimately put him back into the public eye and destroy him if he finds himself wanting when he encounters the ochre order again he strives to attain enough influence and power that even his old family will have no choice but to bow their heads before him.
