Gideon Grey is a slighty-overweight red fox, who lives in the Zootopia suburb of Bunnyburrow. As a boy, he was a mean-spirited bully, who frequently persecuted Judy Hopps (when she was also a child). This bullying left some scars in Judy's psyche, which all came flooding back into her conscious mind when she learned, from Nick Wilde, that he was the victim of some terrible bullying when he was a child.
When Judy left Bunnyburrow, to pursue her dream of becoming a Zootopia police officer, Gideon lost track of her. However, as he grew into adulthood, he mellowed a lot, and wisened up. Eventually, he partnered up with Judy's parents, who run a carrot farm. Gideon had since become an accomplished baker and pastry chef, and brought his skills to their farm stand, adding new and tasty items to sell to the citizens of Bunnyburrow and its visitors.
When Judy returned, for a short time, to Bunnyburrow, trying to run away from a terrible mistake she made while serving in Zootopia's police force (and then going to work for her parents), Gideon saw his opportunity to approach Judy and humbly apologize for his terrible treatment of her when they were both children. It was a defining moment in their relationship as former opponents, and made things a lot better for Judy, for Gideon and for Judy's family.
