The Mutates[ edit ] The Mutates were created when Sevarius combined animal genes with humans in an attempt to create gargoyle-like creatures for Xanatos. All the Mutates resembled humanoid cats with bat-like wings on their backs giving them enough strength to glide , and had the ability to store and discharge electricity, due to having electric eel DNA and the associated storage organ to naturally accumulate an electric charge.
Resembled a black panther hybrid. Talon was originally Derek Maza, Elisa Maza's younger brother. He took a job as a pilot for David Xanatos, with a series of events leading to his mutation. The mutate Maggie Reed is shown to love him, and the feeling is mutual.
He resembled a puma hybrid with bat wings. Fang was a human named Fred Sykes before Sevarius mutated him. He found several laser rifles and used them and a pair of human followers to attempt to take over the Labyrinth where the mutates lived.
Claw Claw is a strong-but-silent Mutate. Resembled a tiger hybrid. Maggie Reed Maggie Reed is an innocent young homeless woman who was tricked by Sevarius, she was the most desperate to find a cure for her condition.
Maggie was voiced by Kath Soucie. Maggie resembled a lion hybrid. To continue with his experiments in mutating, Sevarius and Fang abducted four residents of the Labyrinth. Thug Thug was in charge of guarding Fang's cell, before he was freed by Sevarius. Mutated into a human crocodile. He took the two kids back to the Labyrinth.
Tasha Tasha was a woman who was mutated into a human armadillo. She committed suicide after discovering that Sevarius had no intent to cure them. Benny Benny is a boy who was mutated into a human woodlouse. Erin Erin is a girl who was mutated into a human turtle. She is Benny's older sister.
They got to choose which mutated forms that their comic book versions were given. Their intellects were originally deliberately stunted to make them obedient to Thailog, but with Thailog's supposed death they regained their freedom.
Talon offered to take the clones with him to the Labyrinth to educate them. After a battle with Goliath and his clan, most of the clones decide to return to the Labyrinth, at the insistence of Delilah. Only Brentwood decides to remain with Thailog. There are hints to a possible relationship between Malibu and Delilah much to the disappointment of Brooklyn, before his initial meeting with his own future mate Katana. Unlike the other clones, he decides to remain with Thailog, viewing him to be smart.
He was the only clone, however, to stay out of the fight between the clans. Brentwood parallels with the evil Lexington from Future Tense. Lex comments on his decision, saying "You're really making me look bad. Burbank voiced by Edward Asner - Burbank is the clone of Hudson.
Much like Hudson, Burbank carries a weapon, in his case, a mace. Delilah is voiced by Salli Richardson. Goliath went to the Labyrinth requesting Delilah's company for a Halloween dance as Elisa had broken up with him.
After Thailog crashes the party, Delilah is given the choice to remain with Thailog or go back to The Labyrinth. After deciding to leave Thailog, she asked the other clones to make the same choice, and was joined by all of them except for Brentwood.
Delilah was angry that Goliath tried to use her as a replacement for Elisa when they temporarily broke up. Goliath had explained to Elisa that he could never feel anything for Delilah, because Gargoyles mate for life. The clones differ from the originals by their colors, and some features like horns or teeth.
To gain a physical advantage, Malibu, Brentwood, Hollywood and Burbank were aged to be in their biological 20s: The clones' names are places in Los Angeles , contrasting with and spoofing as chosen by Demona their counterpart protagonists' New York City placenames.
Thailog[ edit ] Thailog Thailog is the reverse spelling of "Goliath" , was a clone of Goliath created by Anton Sevarius and educated by David Xanatos, via a " subliminal education program" , giving him many of Xanatos's personality traits. He would prove to be both a genius and a persistent enemy. Thailog debuts in season 2, in Double Jeopardy, which aired in November Like Goliath, he was also voiced by Keith David.
Deciding that he would never be free under Xanatos' thumb, Thailog planned his own kidnapping by Sevarius, blackmails Xanatos for 20 million dollars for his safe return, and, after meeting his genetic source, Goliath, for the first time, seemingly perishes in an explosion.
Xanatos later guesses that Thailog had planned to fake his death all along, leaving him both free of Xanatos, and free to spend the 20 million without interference. Xanatos realizes that he has created a monster, one as strong as Goliath, and as smart as, if not smarter than , himself. Demona, in her human form, planned to marry Macbeth and then claim that he was dead in order to inherit his fortune, Thailog planned to kill Macbeth and Demona and as her sole business partner, her Banker, he would inherit their combined fortunes.
Humans[ edit ] In addition to the gargoyles, human characters figure prominently in the series, both as allies and enemies of the gargoyles. Residents of Castle Wyvern [ edit ] Main article: Avalon Clan Princess Katarine is the leader of Castle Wyvern and, by default, the Scottish clan of gargoyles during the s. Katharine was at first prejudiced against the clan, but after they saved her life, she vowed to protect the clans' unhatched eggs  and raise them on Avalon.
He formed a co-existence alliance with the gargoyles who had been there for centuries, and built Castle Wyvern. Goliath, Demona, and Hudson saved his life from an attack by the Archmage. He also inadvertently inspired hatred of gargoyles at Wyvern, particularly in Princess Katharine—he told her that the gargoyles would get her if she didn't stay in bed.
Voiced by Roger Rees. Princess Elena Princess Elena is Katherine's mother. She married Prince Malcolm in , and intended to give him the Phoenix Gate as a dowry until it was stolen by Demona. Voiced by Kath Soucie. It was the Magus who cast the spell that imprisoned Goliath's clan in stone, believing that the Viking Hakon had murdered the Princess and blaming the gargoyles for her death.
He later discovered that Princess Katharine had been rescued by Goliath; unable to restore the gargoyles as Hakon had burned the page with his counterspell , he agreed to place Goliath under the same spell, so that he might one day be reunited with his clan. He died after using a great deal of energy to defeat the Weird Sisters. While living on Avalon, the adult Tom became Katharine's confidante, and eventually her husband.
Mary[ edit ] Mary, Tom the Guardian's mother, was fiercely anti-gargoyle like Katharine,  but had a change of heart as she, too, vowed to protect the eggs. Along with Finnella, she did not go to Avalon, instead choosing to stay on Earth and guard the Grimorum Arcanorum, stating that, "a woman alone might run into trouble: She and Finella would continue guarding the Grimorum while leaving with Brooklyn.
The Archmage[ edit ] The Archmage was an evil sorcerer and an enemy of the gargoyle clan at Castle Wyvern. He was defeated by Goliath,  but his future self saved him from his fall in a perpetual time paradox—as his future self existed in the s, and rescued his past self, without any explanation for how the loop began.
The Archmage continues to live through this loop, despite his later defeat, after rescuing himself in the past. The Archmage was encouraged to conquer the world, but first had to retrieve the trio of occult objects he most desired, the "three keys to power" in the series, comprising: His future self secured an alliance with the Weird Sisters to watch out for the mystical artifacts, as well as guide the destinies of Demona and Macbeth, advising them to bend Oberon's law of non-interference.
The "Future Archmage" brought his past self nearly a thousand years into the future, where his past self swallowed the Grimorum in order for the spellbook to be brought onto the island "human magic" is not allowed on Avalon by law; consuming it created a "legal loophole" , thus making him very powerful.
However, he was defeated by Goliath, who stripped him of the Eye of Odin, causing the Grimorum to turn the Archmage into a pile of dust. Resentful of the lack of appreciation that he and the gargoyles received for defending the castle, he struck a deal with Demona and the Vikings to have the castle sacked , forcing out the humans and leaving only him and the gargoyles.
The plan included sabotage, such as severing bowstrings, but backfired when the Viking leader Hakon shattered most of the gargoyles during the day after the siege, prompting Goliath and the survivors Hudson, Brooklyn, Broadway, Lexington and Bronx to go after the Vikings for revenge.
The Captain was killed along with Hakon in , when they fell off a cliff,  but their spirits remained trapped in the area as punishment for their actions. When Goliath returned to the Wyvern site a thousand years later, the Captain and Hakon, in spirit form, attempted to steal Goliath's lifeforce and thus free themselves from the area. He stopped midway, after realizing his guilt for his treachery, and instead turned on Hakon.
Having atoned for his sins, his spirit was set free to rest in peace. Voiced by Salli Richardson. Her family also figures prominently in the series: Peter Maza Peter Maza is Elisa's father. He never argues with Elisa once she sets her mind on something.
She went to a Nigerian village to get in touch with her roots as a griot. Derek Maza Derek Maza is Elisa's brother  who was a cop and also a pilot. He was later transformed into the mutate Talon by Xanatos. Voiced by Rocky Carroll. Macbeth[ edit ] Macbeth, former King of Scotland , was loosely based on the Shakespearean character as well as the real historical figure , depicted with a white chin curtain beard in the s main storyline of the series.
He is eternally bound to Demona and is forced to live in conflict with her forever; neither one can die until one simultaneously kills the other. He tried to claim the sword Excalibur for himself but did not succeed in doing this.
After being impressed with Macbeth's skills and honorable behavior King Arthur offered him a place in the New Round Table has would create. Macbeth, while honored, refused this offer because he felt he could not submit to Arthur's rule as he was a self made man. But, Macbeth offered his services should there ever be a crisis.
He sometimes uses the alias Lennox Macduff. He was voiced by John Rhys-Davies.
