Gideon, whose real name is Graham Lawrence Wilson, is a head moderator and co-founder of this the Blood Wiki. He and his twin brother created it after not being able to find another on the world wide web. Gideon first played Blood in 2005, over eight years after its first release. He found the tone and game play to be interesting, but did not understand the plot and eventually grew tired of the game. Later he played the game again and, through its Wikipedia article, learned the plot. Intrigued, he then became an avid Blood fanatic and started to play the game over and over.
Following this, he first played Blood II: The Chosen in the summer 2007, and also enjoyed it highly - particularly the more expansive direction it took the Blood universe. He and his brother started this wiki in January 2008. He takes on the name "Gideon" on the wiki to represent his important role in the wiki and, given he holds the highest amount of textual contributions, the title of "The Word" is rather appropriate. He is interested in politics and economics, philosophy, hacking and hacker culture, gaming, writing, computer animation, paleontology, history, reverse engineering, naturalism, marksmanship, and farming.

"... that after ramming U-405, crewmen of USS Borie (DD-215) fought the sub's crewmen with Tommy guns, rifles, pistols, shotguns and a flare pistol, and even by throwing a knife and an empty shell casing?" - November 28, 2009 - Most Blood-ish Wikipedia "Did you know?" I have seen.
Caleb the Undead Calf
In March 2008 one of my heifers gave birth to a calf, unfortunately she was a new mother (and had never saw her own with a calf) and did not know that she was supposed to FEED him! So after a day of nearly dying of weakness we had to hand feed him, which involved tying his mother to a tree with a lasso (that was hard, though that is the good thing about horns. They work as hold on points!) and dragged the calf to his mother's teats (also supplemented by feeding the little thing with an old syrup bottle full of milk). In homage to this calf's "undead experience" we nicknamed it "Caleb". Not that we expected it to get out, steal our hunting rifle and hunt Cabal though. Damn that would have been cool! It is an interesting note that he was quite placid and oddly enough seemed to show signs of being more like Ishmael, serene rather than brutal. ;-D
The true purpose of the Wiki (In my opinion)
- Unite the remaining Bloodites into one army (Mu ha ha ha ha!)
- Create a master tome of knowledge about Blood (built by the community).
- Raise the undead (who says we can't?)
- Acknowledge the sweat and work of the Bloodites and recognize their work (in the non-canon sections).
- Try to put an end between the Blood versus Blood II wars, as they are in fact getting quite annoying (I personally love both games, but if you only like one do not be a bigot about it! They are also hardly benefiting the cause).
- Start thinking Blood III again!
