Gideon Carlisle was born in a house of negotiable affection in New Orleans, where he learned his trade from his mother and his many aunties. When he was old enough he struck out on his own to make a name for himself, which he has done fairly well since his arrival at Misfortune’s Landing. Laid-back and friendly, having never met a stranger, Gideon’s Southern charm has stood him in good stead during his time in Texas. His primary claim to fame is that he can make anyone look good, often because they already do and simply need his assistance to see it. He loves discussing fashion and design, be it his own or someone else’s, and is always willing to point folks in the direction of the perfect clothing or accessory.
