To counter this threat, the powers of heaven choose GIDEON as their champion, tasking him with confronting the unleashed powers of hell. Gideon, an immortal warrior, possesses unparalleled mastery in warfare and a profound knowledge of the supernatural realm. Despite his unwavering fortitude, doubts begin to erode his resolve as he questions the effectiveness of his endless struggle against evil.

Uriel, the epitome of faith and steadfastness, is a revered archangel in God's divine council. For two millennia, he has stood as Gideon's unwavering guardian against the malevolent forces of the unseen realm. As Gideon's advisor and protector, he unveils the mysteries of the fallen realm, bridging the tangible and the ethereal. Though exuding authority in an earthly guise, Uriel's true form radiates extraordinary power and glory. In "Gideon: Uprising," Uriel stands as the foremost adversary against the fallen angel Abruzial and his master, the Watcher Samael. His unyielding resolve and formidable might make him a beacon of hope against the encroaching darkness.
