Gislason was the first and only son of the almighty Sovereign Azure Dragon. It is said that the Azure Dragon spent an inconceivable amount of time and effort to train his son, thus Gislason is said to be immensely powerful.
He, together with his sister Gaia Redding, were the only children of the Azure Dragon.
He is the current Patriarch of the Redding Clan, while his sister occupies the position of Grand Elder. The status of Patriarch was only slightly higher than Grand Elder, but in the clan, all Elders were subordinate to them.
