The Penumbra Extinction
A corrupt judge who craves greater political power
An elderly gentleman with silver hair. He is slender, but athletic despite his age. He has been described as “hawklike”, and exudes an air of power.
On the surface, Joseph Gideon is a well-respected and even-handed judge who is liked by all sides of the spectrum. He is often consulted on his vast knowledge of civil rights laws, and in recent days has been nominated to fill the vacant seat on the SCOTUS.
Underneath, however, he is a conniving, power-hungry, and corrupt politician who has no qualms in using murder and intimidation to enlarge his political influence.
