It did not abate his desire to use his Physical Prowess to his advantage and protect those that Gordon believed needed him as their Champion. While his father treated him with deep affection he did make sure that Gordon knew the consequences of his actions. He was taught the code of Honor and how his father felt were the skills of a man.
Going into middle and high school Gordon was a rather large kid for his age, the Orion blood was enough to give him some physical advantages. As a game to direct his physical energy he took up Rugby rather than the 'slower' option of football. Also he was among the higher levels of the Grade Point Average; his mother had taught him the Orion language with the firm rule he never allow the knowledge to be given to the Federation as a whole, it was a cherished language among her people.
