Season six of the popular Witch-themed dramedy "Charmed" introduced a powerful Elder named Gideon.
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gideon_%28Charmed%29 )

He assited Leo when Leo first became a Whitelighter, supported Leo and Piper's marriage, and was headmaster of Magic School (think a Professor at Hogwarts, like McGonagall or Dumbledore). He also happened to try the entire sixth season to kill baby Wyatt (Leo and Piper's son) for the "greater good," seeing that Wyatt would grow too powerful.

He fails, and ends up being killed by Leo, but before he dies, he manages to kill Wyatt's younger brother (who came to the past to save Wyatt) Chris (my favorite character in the entire show). In an alternate future, Gideon's attempt on Wyatt's life caused Wyatt to instead of die, turn evil.

That Benedict Arnold-type character, and sacrifice anything for the "greater good" morality, is all I can think about from this name.
