Moff Gideon is the main antagonist of the Disney+ Star Wars television series The Mandalorian. A soldier in the Galactic Empire before rising through the ranks, and becoming a Marshal. By 9 ABY, he claimed the title of Moff and led a group of Imperial remnant. He serves as the main antagonist of season 1 and is set to return in season 2, reprising the same role.
Gideon led a remnant of Imperial forces. He wished to acquire a valuable asset from Arvala-7, in 9 ABY Gideon tasked a man known as "the Client" and Doctor Pershing with bringing it alive by any means necessary.
Upon contacting the Client on Nevarro, he informed Gideon that they had the Child in their custody. However, the Moff told him to recheck the Child's pram. Soon after, Gideon's Death Troopers opened fire killing the Client and the stormtroopers accompanying him in the cantina once operated for the Guild. Moments later, an Imperial Troop Transport arrived, and Stormtroopers poured out, assisting the Death Troopers in securing the cantina to keep the Mandalorian and his crew from escaping.
Shortly afterward, Gideon arrived at the scene in his Outland TIE fighter. As he climbed out from his ship and approached the shot up cantina window, the Moff stated to the Mandalorian how he did not understand the Child at all, and how much he needed it. As Gideon was saying this, two scout troopers shot down Kuiil and his Blurrg. They collected the Child, who was lying on the ground and zoomed off to bring it back to him.
When the scout troopers carrying the Child approached the town they sent a radio message requesting clearance. While the operator on the other end was willing to let them proceed he advised them to wait as Gideon had just killed ten of his own men. Checking back for an update on their clearance, the scout troopers learned that Gideon had just killed one of his own officers for interrupting him.
Gideon is a sophisticated, knowledgeable commander sought after bringing order. He was willing to kill fellow Imperials to achieve his goals.
- Despite being the main villain of the first season of The Mandalorian, Gideon only appears in the last 2 episodes.
