In Enter MacBeth, MacBeth refers to Demona as the Gargoyles' queen. But wouldn't she or even someone of her clan from the past have told him a bit about Gargoyles and their clans and that they didn't have kings or queens? Or did she leave him to believe she was their queen?

Greg responds...

I think you're taking his statement too literally. He saw her as the leader of the gargoyles, which she was during the key moment of his natural life. He views leaders in terms of kings and queens, so used that language. (Also as a chess metaphor, I seem to recall.) But he wasn't speaking or thinking about her this way literally.

How many gargoyles lived in the Wyvern Clan? Including Demona's Clan and Avalon Clan.

Greg responds...

You can't include those two clans, because most weren't ever part of the Wyvern Clan, unless you count eggs. The Wyvern Clan had about 40 gargoyles in it after the Wyvern Split Clan split off.

Did Demona and her clan sleep at Castle Moray during the time she was allied with Macbeth?

Greg responds...

Often. Though never the entire clan at any one time.

So, since Demona led her own clan for at least sixty years, 998 was a hatching year (assuming any of these gargoyles had surviving eggs), so was 1018, and 1038.

While I know she didn't take a mate and thus didn't lay any new eggs for 1018 an 1038, was she a rookery mother to either of these generations of eggs? Or is Angela the first child she ever gave a damn about.

Greg responds...

No timeline available to me on this Southwest flight. Sorry.

So was Demona's clan all in one place when they were destroyed by Canmore? Given that Demona had previously split them in cells to ensure their survival that makes little sense. Couldn't a handful of them survived?

Greg responds...

Did Canmore say he smashed them while they slept, or did he just say that he killed them all? I can't remember at the moment.

Was it ever planned to reveal more information about the "Blue Beaked Gargoyle" from Demonas Clan in CoS?

Greg responds...

Eventually.

Hi Greg,

I noticed in your memo for City of Stone that you placed Demona's clan living in caves at Lunfanan Hill in 1020 and 1040. Is that where that cell lived? http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=134

Greg responds...

Canon-in-training.

I was wondering how long before 1020 that Demona's Clan, or at least the cell of it that consisted of "Second", "Kermit" and the other gargoyles who had hatched at Wyvern had been living at Lunfanan Hill. When Brooklyn seeks them out in 997, were the Lunfanan Caves the ones they lived in at that time?

Also, did Demona have a name for this cell (like calling the massacred gargoyles the Shruiglea Cell)? I think on GargWiki we are either calling it the Wyvern Cell or the Lunfanan Cell (which prompted me to ask my first question).

Just trying to get some facts straight for the Wiki. Thanks!

Greg responds...

She wouldn't call it the Wyvern Cell. Maybe the Lunfanan Cell.

I don't know that I've broken down exactly when each cell moved where, but I think Lunfanan is a good bet for Second and Kermit, etc., even early on.

Still, cannon-in-training.

Adam writes...

Hi Greg. You have provided the names, hatched dates, and original clan of the gargoyles seen in Demona's clan in CoS and CB2 except for the blue beaked gargoyle. Could you provide the same for him?

Greg responds...

No.

1. Why did you give the moniker of "True" to Hudson's third biological child? Where did the name come from?

2. In what series' or spin-offs would we see True again?

3. Aside from Hudson, were any of True and "Kermit"'s rookery parents still alive as of 997?

4. Where did True and Kermit go during the Battle of Rathveramoen? Were there other gargoyles/beasts of similiar age among other cells of Demona's Clan?

5. Do you consider the cell that True belonged to to be called the Wyvern Cell or would you call it something else? Was this the cell that Demona spent most her time with?

Thanks, Greg!

Greg responds...

1a. It seemed appropriate.

1b. My twisted mind.

2. Dark Ages.

3. Potentially.

4a. Into hiding.

4b. Yes.

5a. I doubt it was called that, since it wasn't located at Wyvern. But I understand how that's a useful and sensible place-holder for the time being. And, no, I haven't set a specific location for it yet.

5b. Yes.
