Gideon Starling, (ギデオン・スターリング Gideon Sutāringu) AKA Dad, is the husband of Elizabeth Starling and the father of Cordelia Starling, Juliet Starling, and Rosalind Starling. He is a professional zombie hunter and is more experienced than his daughters. He is strong enough to shake a building with a single punch.

During the battle with Killabilly, Gideon sacrifices himself by riding on a motorcycle filled to the brim with dynamite and riding it into Killabilly's face. The explosion leaves a large hole within Killabilly's head, allowing a grief-stricken Juliet to escape. He is eventually revealed to have survived, but humorously claims he suffered an injury as a result.

Lollipop ChainsawEdit

Gideon is first introduced to the audience early within the game, when Juliet mentions about a father, who is sexually attractive to many of Juliet's female friends. Gideon is then later formally introduced during the end of Stage 3, where he comes for aid when Juliet attempts to save her younger sister Rosalind.

Through the way with his motorcycle, Juliet introduces her father to her recent boyfriend Nick.

When finally at the Fulci Fun Center, Juliet and Gideon develop a plan in order to retrieve Rosalind. Their plans involve Gideon climbing all the way to the roof of the building to obtain Rosalind, while Juliet acts as a decoy to his actions. Crying out of joy, Gideon offers Juliet a gift from him and her mother before leaving off to the roof.

Once at the roof, Gideon quietly infiltrates the area, looking for Rosalind. As Juliet fights Josey, he abandons the Fulci Fun Center and begins to enter his Ship, causing Gideon to fly towards the ceiling and leaving him at the Fulci Fun Center. Despite this Gideon manages to get back on Josey's Ship, finally retrieving Rosalind and parachuting to safety, just in time before Josey deceived Juliet.

At the cathedral, Gideon helps Juliet along with the rest of her family try to defeat the final purveyor. Reaching their destination, Gideon then punches a column of the unfinished Cathedral, causing it shake and make a hole in the ground. Before Juliet gets in, Gideon gives his support and approval for Nick, as Juliet has shown Nick will be of no burden to Juliet.

When it is realized that the purpose of the Purveyors were to be sacrifices to summon Killabilly, Juliet and Nick race their way to defeat him. When weakened, Gideon sacrificed himself in order for Juliet to defeat him. It was presumed that he died, but it is revealed that he managed to survive, only having a minor injury to his genitals. The Starling and Nick return home in order to further celebrate Juliet's birthday.
