Background Info:
The strange tale of Babylon begins with a slave named Gideon, whose taboo relationship with a young woman led to her murder at her father’s hands. Summoned forth by the unfair murder of a female, the Furies of myth attempted to gain revenge on her behalf. When the devil-worshiping father made a deal with Satan to save his own life, Gideon’s soul was offered up to the Lord of Lies… and Satan bound Gideon’s spirit to a set of armor forged in Hell. With this armor, Gideon defeated the Furies but was saved from Damnation by the arrival of an angel that argued that Gideon’s soul was not meant for Hell. A bargain was brokered in which Gideon would be empowered by both Heaven and Hell but claimed by neither. He would wander the Earth, occupying the bodies of his descendants, seeking retribution for those innocents whose blood had been spilled.

Though he had many hosts, his longest-lived was Daniel Higgins, a Jazz musician whose sister was killed by criminals in 1940. Together, Daniel and Gideon became a powerful force, battling a wide array of villains over the course of several decades. Daniel finally passed on to the other side in 2010 but his spirit was summoned back less than two years later as Gideon’s time with another host (Jennifer Black) ended abruptly. Daniel agreed to return to life and once again serve as host to Babylon.
