Paralysis: If the Gargoyle touches an opponent with both claws, the opponent must make a Fortitude saving throw, DC 16, to avoid being paralyzed for 1d4 rounds. The saving Throw is constitution-based.

Stone: If the Gargoyle keeps a paralyzed opponent in her claws, she can then concentrate for 3 rounds. If she is not interrupted, at the end of the 3 rounds, she brings her head to touch the opponent. A paralyzed opponent that fails a DC 18 Fortitude save then becomes a lesser Gargoyle if he is non-blooded, while a blooded scion becomes a Greater Gargoyle. There is 30% chance that The Gargoyle will gain 1 bloodscore point when turning a blooded scion to a Greater Gargoyle.


The Gargoyle used to be a follower of Azrai. Initially named Riessa Caesone, she was one of the few Anuireans that did not turn away from Azrai at Deismaar. Much less powerful than Raesene, Kriesha or Belinik, she was only a squad commander and not one of the great captains.

After the defeat of Azrai, she exiled herself to an isle off the coast of Aerenwe, the Isle of Caelcorwynn. There, she brooded, alone with what few followers she had retained from her unit.

They built a castle and lived there, in seclusion. The other inhabitants of the island fled, as she began her transformation into the Gargoyle. Even though she used to be good-looking, she became horrendous-looking, as her mind began showing itself on her physical features. A cold-hearted, patient woman, she became a living statue of granite.

Today, her lesser and greater gargoyles litter the island, killing everything they meet. Should they meet a blooded scion, the gargoyles will try to capture and bring the scion to their mistress, in the hope of increasing their numbers.
