Me again, I'm helping out the Gargwiki by getting years of birth for some of the human characters. Of course I'll be doing the ones related to Macbeth so you can focus on those ones. The people are Gillecomgain, Mail Brigti, Kenneth II, Maol Chalvim II, Findlaech, Duncan, Canmore and Luach.

Greg responds...

Kenneth II - 932

Maol Chalvim II - 962

Mail Brigti - 962

Findlaech - 969

Gillecomgain - 982

Duncan - 1001

Canmore - 1031

Luach - 1033

Just wondering about the origin of a couple of monikers.

1. Where did the nickname "The Grim" come from for Kenneth? Why did you use it?

2. What is the origin of "True", the young female in Demona's Clan. Meaning, why do you call her "True"?

Greg responds...

1. I think it's "in-story" origin is pretty clear from the story, so I won't add to that. As for why I chose to use it... it had a few benefits:

1. Helps distinguish Kenneth III from Kenneth II.

2. Added a bit of tension as to who or what the Grim might be before we met him.

3. Was useful to illustrate character for Grim and Maol Chalvim.

First off, I would just like to say that I am a huge fan of Gargoyles, and I look forward to any news on further DVD releases when it becomes available. With that out of the way, I'm curious as to whether or not Macbeth has any family ties to the Princess of Castle Wivern (I admit, I'm drawing a blank on her name). Are they both of the same royal bloodline, or are they from separate kingdoms within Scotland?

Greg responds...

Princess Katharine's cousin Maol Chalvim was Macbeth's grandfather.
