Gideon Ironbeard is a dwarven businessman and treasure hunter. Characterized by his distinctive silver-grey beard, Gideon is known for his stinginess and gruff disposition. Born and raised in the territory of Saltspire, Gideon Ironbeard moved away from his homeland in order to begin an adventuring company with his close friend Borgis Treen. Together, he and Treen founded the Heroes of Mirth, which quickly became one of the largest adventuring companies in Mezzek City. After Gideon Ironbeard's departure from the Heroes of Mirth, he went on to form his own adventuring company known as Ironbeard Acquisitions.
Gideon is believed to have perished during the Sinking of Saltpire.
