[[folder:The Manhattan Clan]]

!!Goliath

-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KeithDavid

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Gargoyles_Goliath_964.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:It is the nature of mankind to fear what they do not understand. Their ways are not our ways.]]

Goliath is the leader of the Manhattan Clan, and the series' protagonist.
----
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Goliath is recognized as the powerhouse of the Manhattan Clan.
* {{Badass}}: Xanatos has even stated that he considers Goliath the greatest warrior alive.
** BadassBaritone: 'Cause it's KeithDavid, duh.
** BadassInCharge: He's the leader of the Manhattan Clan.
** CulturedBadass: The library thing. (See GeniusBruiser.)
** HeartbrokenBadass: Due to the massacre of his clan and Demona's treachery.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Elisa.
* CatchPhrase:
** "That is the gargoyle way."
** "What sorcery is this?!"
** "Let's go home."
* DeadpanSnarker: Once in a blue moon.
-->'''Goliath''': Your manipulations have failed, Xanatos. I don't suppose you have a Plan D?
* {{Determinator}}: Goliath ''never'' gives up.
* EvilLaugh: In "Enter Macbeth," he lets out a pretty sinister laugh when he reveals the flaw in Macbeth‘s fundamentally flawed BatmanGambit.
** In "Double Jeopardy," Hudson (who wasn't around for that scene in "Enter Macbeth") gets a line that's hilarious in context:
--> D'ye even know '''how''' to laugh maniacally?
* TheFettered: He is doggedly devoted to the Gargoyle way (protection of those who cannot protect themselves).
* GeniusBruiser: He spends every spare moment in the library reading. He's got a lot to catch up on.
* TheHero: He's the main good guy.
* HeroicBuild: Goliath's a big dude, that's for sure.
* HeroicResolve: Even after everything he's lost and all that he's suffered, Goliath remains devoted to doing the right thing.
* HeroicSacrifice: According to WordOfGod, this is how Goliath will meet his end. Weisman has, as of this writing, kept all other details to himself.
* HeroicSpirit: Goliath allows ''nothing'' to corrupt his noble spirit.
%%** HeroicWillpower
* HurtingHero: Above all, Goliath's defining trait is that he goes on being good--setting his castle before his clan, [[TheMenFirst his clan before himself]]. [[BeingGoodSucks And he keeps getting hurt for it]]. The big one-two punch is losing his [[TemporaryLoveInterest true love]] and his entire 10th-century world in the very first episode, and goes on to be [[CrapsackWorld repeatedly hurt, betrayed, robbed and driven from his home]]. The writers didn't sit down at the storyboarding session each week with the comment "How can we mess with the big guy this week?" but you'd never know it from watching the show.
* [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim If You Kill Xanatos, You Will Be Just Like Demona]]: Elisa uses this argument to talk Goliath out of killing Xanatos at the climax of "Awakening, Part 5."
* InterspeciesRomance: With Elisa. It's done with much better timing and respect for the characters than usual. Despite their [[Film/SupermanTheMovie Superman]]-style initial meeting, they start out as PlatonicLifePartners. Were it not for certain events [[spoiler:brought about by Demona and Puck]], they may have gone on that way; instead, there was a sudden burst of {{UST}}, leading to a moving BetterAsFriends moment after which they ''remained'' friends due to the considerable obstacles in the way of InterspeciesRomance...for a while.
* KnightTemplar: Under the effects of the Eye of Odin.
* LanternJawOfJustice: Adding to his chiseled good looks and heroic demeanor.
* LargeHam: On a number of occasions, especially when he's angry.
--> '''Goliath''': I've been denied everything...even my '''''REVENGE'''''!
* TheLeader: He replaced Hudson pre-series and led the Manhattan Clan until he left for Avalon. At that point, he put Brooklyn in charge. While he values wisdom, the others follow him because they believe in him.
* LoveHurts: Goliath loved Demona deeply, and her betrayal hurt him just as deeply.
* LukeYouAreMyFather: [[spoiler:To Angela. He knew; he just didn't think it was a huge deal because of the gargoyles' cultural attitude towards children, namely that they're the children of the entire community.]]
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: After the [[Literature/TheBible biblical]] character Goliath.
* PapaWolf: Do NOT ''EVER'' harm any member (human and gargoyle) of Goliath's clan. Believe me, you'll be [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge wishing you hadn't]].
** [[spoiler:KnightTemplarParent: He becomes this temporarily after the Hunters nearly kill Angela.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Despite his noble personality, Goliath tends to forget that "death solves nothing" if it looks like one of his clan is dead.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: From a gargoyle (and [[InterspeciesRomance Elisa]]'s) standpoint; his human form in "The Mirror" reflects this.
* TeamDad: To his clan.
* ThouShaltNotKill: He does not have a problem with killing enemies in the heat of battle, but does when it comes to executing helpless or subdued foes. He can, however, be pushed into disregarding this, notably in the second season finale after he comes to believe [[spoiler:the Hunters killed Angela. But even then, he didn't take too much time to make sure that they were dead after he knocked them out.]]
* WarriorPoet: A wise and philosophical gargoyle, as well as an immensely skilled warrior.
* WorkingWithTheEx: For a brief moment in "Hunter's Moon, part 3", Goliath and Demona team up to escape the Hunters. Double as an EnemyMine.

!!Elisa Maza

-->'''Voiced by''': Salli Richardson

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Gargoyles_Elisa_5873.png]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Sure, the city shows an ugly face sometimes, but there is more to it than that. There's beauty here; moms that sing to their kids, the way my mom used to.]]

A detective with the NYPD's 23rd precinct, Elisa is the first friend the gargoyles make after the curse is broken. As such, she takes it upon herself to introduce them to their new world. She becomes very close to them, particularly Goliath, and is later considered a part of the clan.
----
* ActionGirl: She can hold her own just as well as any of the gargoyles.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Is an honorary member of a gargoyle clan, and has met wizards and spirits but doesn't believe in the [[AncientConspiracy Illuminati]] or common urban legends. And until she met Puck in "The Mirror," she didn't believe in elves or faeries either.
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead / NotQuiteDead: A very realistic example after Broadway accidentally shoots Elisa, she nearly dies and is literally dead for a few moments when her heart temporarily stops.]]
* BadassNormal: With special emphasis on the {{Badass}}. In one episode, a [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting feral, transformed Fox]] has Elisa cornered, is holding her up by the shoulder of her jacket, and seems to be about to sink her teeth into her. Elisa's response is to ''smack Fox in the face with a sack of flour''.
* BeastAndBeauty: With Goliath. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the Halloween episode, where she {{cosplay}}s as [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]].
* ButNotTooForeign: She's half-African American, half-Native American.
* TheCommissionerGordon: Of the "Heroes are obscure and/or feared and their police friend isn't at the top of the police totem pole" variety.
* CoolBigSis: Especially to Broadway.
* CuteMonsterGirl: During her small stint as a gargoyle in "The Mirror." Goliath certainly thought so.
* DamselOutOfDistress: She gets in a lot of trouble, but usually gets back out without having to wait to be saved. The only distressing situation she can't rescue herself from is [[GravityIsAHarshMistress falling off tall buildings]].
--> '''Elisa''': ''(slipping out of her shackles)'' You work with handcuffs as much as I do, you pick up a few things.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's very quick-witted.
* FairCop: A very attractive police detective.
* TheFettered: Even though she hates Xanatos, she wouldn't break the law to take him down.
* IllTakeThatAsACompliment: Her response when Brooklyn in "Temptation" and Taurus in "The New Olympians" call her [[YouAreACreditToYourRace a credit to humans]].
* InkSuitActor: Go look up a picture of Salli Richardson. We'll wait.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Goliath.
* IWorkAlone: Initially. She's very resentful at being assigned a partner in Matt Bluestone, but eventually warms up to him.
* KindheartedCatLover: Owns a cat named Cagney.
* SecondLove: To Goliath.
* SecretKeeper: Deconstructed; keeping the gargoyles a secret puts a severe strain on her relationship with her partner Matt (who hates secrets in general) and her family, both of whom call her on it. Later, she admits that her reasons for doing so were partly selfish, [[IJustWantToBeSpecial wanting to feel special]] as their only ally.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Her Belle costume proved this in "Eye Of the Beholder."
* SmurfettePrinciple: The only lead female character, at least until Angela shows up.
* TeamMom: To the Manhattan Clan.
* TwoferTokenMinority: Native American ''and'' African-American.
* UltimateJobSecurity: She remains a valued member of the police force, despite the unexplained loss of several guns and her six-month disappearance. The last one becomes [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that the police decide to use her six-month disappearance as an excuse to have her go undercover into a gang that popped up during her absence.
* WrongGenreSavvy: After she confronts Oberon in "Ill Met by Moonlight," she admits that she had been bluffing with her gun and she didn't have any bullets. Then she quips that, fighting the king of the faeries, she would probably need silver bullets anyway. Katharine corrects her; while silver is effective against vampires and weres, faeries are particularly vulnerable to cold iron. This scene is deleted from the reruns, [[ExecutiveMeddling for some reason]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Though given that no one ever comments on it, it is most likely a quirk of the art style representing glossy black hair.
* YouHaveToBelieveMe: Her efforts to convince Derek that Xanatos was not a good guy boiled down to this.

!!Brooklyn

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett

[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BrooklynPostTimeDancer_1232.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:145:Long story, some of it even true.]]

Goliath's second-in-command. While once impetuous and a thrill seeker, Brooklyn soon grows into his reluctant role as the secondary leader and [[CharacterDevelopment becomes]] more serious and a skilled tactician.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Maggie (got together with Talon), Angela (got together with Broadway), Delilah (got together with Malibu, ''his own clone'')...the series wasn't kind to his love life.
* {{Badass}}: Which earns him his place as Goliath's second-in-command.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With his mate Katana. WordOfGod says that their relationship, especially early on, would be akin to [[{{Cheers}} Sam Malone and Diane Chambers]]. When no one understood what he was talking about, he mentioned [[MuchAdoAboutNothing Benadick and Beatrice]]. [[ViewersAreGeniuses Everyone cracked up]].
* BerserkButton: Mentioning Demona around him.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: The stress of leadership is what initially causes him to withdraw from the role in "Kingdom". His CharacterDevelopment for the episode sees him get over this, ending with Brooklyn stepping up as leader in Goliath's absence.
* CharacterDevelopment: Graduates from the youthful gargoyle trio to becoming second-in-command to Goliath.
* ADayInTheLimelight: The ''[=TimeDancer=]'' arc. He gets a few in the series proper too, such as the episode where he's promoted to second-in-command, and the episode after Goliath and Elisa leave for Avalon where he finally shows some well-earned authority.
* DeadpanSnarker: The worse his love life gets, the more bitter it becomes. To the point where it's really not funny anymore...
* [[spoiler:EyepatchAfterTimeSkip: At some point during his timedancing, Brooklyn loses use of his left eye, and starts wearing a patch over it.]]
* FutureBadass: Brooklyn returned from his travels through time older, wiser, and having [[TookALevelInBadass taken a few levels in badass]].
* HeartbrokenBadass: About three or four times.
* InterspeciesRomance: Subverted. Maggie never returned his affections.
* KnightInSourArmor: Brooklyn gets snarkier and snarkier as time goes on, but it doesn't mean that he doesn't care, and definitely doesn't mean that he stops doing the right thing.
* TheLancer: Compared to Goliath, he is less confident, more hot-blooded and leans more toward brains than brawn.
* LeeroyJenkins: At first.
* NumberTwo: To Goliath before he was promoted to TheLeader.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to most of the other Blues of his clan.
* [[spoiler:SwordAndGun: After his time-dancing, he carries a longsword, katanas and a gun.]]

!!Broadway

--> '''Voiced by''': Bill Fagerbakke

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Broadway_2453.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:350:You made one mistake, Tony. You messed with my partner. And when someone messes with your partner, you're supposed to do something about it.]]

A BigEater who develops a liking for detective movies.
----
* {{Acrofatic}}: He's very quick and maneuverable for his size.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: You cannot deny that he has many moments of this.
* BaldOfAwesome: No hair, but just as badass as any gargoyle.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: It's hard to piss him off, but when it ''does'' happen...
* BigEater: His EstablishingCharacterMoment in "Awakening" has him eat ''while fighting''. He even knocks out a Viking with a drumstick.
* BigFun: Broadway loves a good time.
* TheBigGuy: The second largest out of the clan, aside from [[LargeAndInCharge Goliath]].
* ConspicuousTrenchcoat: Occasionally wears this.
* CulturedBadass: Becomes one through CharacterDevelopment. By the time of the comics, he is a big Shakespeare fan.
* DoesntLikeGuns: Following "Deadly Force," guns are one of the [[BerserkButton few things]] that'll make him mad.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:His future self in Puck's nightmare vision in "[[BadFuture Future Tense]]" has lost both his eyes, leaving the sockets completely empty]].
* GentleGiant: For such a big guy, you'll never find a sweeter soul than Broadway.
* GuileHero: After "Deadly Force," Broadway shifts his hero worship of police from action movies to detective stories, and his attitude follows suit. He's not the smartest of the clan, but he subtly becomes less violent than any of them, excepting perhaps Lexington.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: First with Elisa, and now also with Angela.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: He was initially a big fan of guns (in movies, at least) until he accidentally shot Elisa. It terrified him and led directly to DoesntLikeGuns.
* ImprovisedWeapon: He once used a turkey leg to knock out a soldier in a castle raid early in the series.
* NeverLearnedToRead: He even brags about it at some point. But later, he relishes on reading and becomes a Shakespeare fanboy...[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming who loves reading to his girlfriend]].
* NiceGuy: This is what actually allows him to win over Angela.
* PlatonicLifePartners: He is the closest to Elisa of all the Manhattan Clan besides Goliath.
* StoutStrength: Heavyset, and very strong.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Broadway [[UglyCute isn't exactly ugly]], but [[CuteMonsterGirl Angela's hotness]] more than qualifies them for this trope.

!!Lexington

--> '''Voiced by''': Thom Adcox-Hernandez

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lexington_8113.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:350:It's nice to know there are still some heroes left.]]

A gargoyle with a gift for technology.
----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: Espescially when he goes full-blown {{Adorkable}}.
** BadassBookworm: Lexington's the technical brains out of the clan.
** [[spoiler:FutureBadass: In Puck's nightmare vision in "Future Tense."]]
* BaldOfAwesome: Not a hair on his head, and quite awesome.
* BerserkButton: The Pack, due to a huge BrokenPedestal moment.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As the first Coyote found out firsthand.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Concerning baby Alex Xanatos.
** FriendToAllChildren: He's great with Alex, and would do anything to keep him safe.
* [[spoiler:{{Cyborg}}]]: [[spoiler:In Puck's nightmare vision in "Future Tense."]]
* GadgeteerGenius: This is a gargoyle who was born in the 10th century and yet learned how to re-assemble a motorcycle and use a computer (along with other gadgets) in the span of a few months.
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]: [[spoiler:He turns evil in Puck's nightmare future vision in "Future Tense." This doesn't appear to happen in the show's real timeline, though perhaps as a reflection of this, his clone Brentwood does end up siding with Thailog in the comics.]]
* HeroWorshipper: He initially naively admires the Pack. Once he realizes their real natures, he takes a complete turnaround and spends the most of the series with a special hatred for them.
* InstantExpert: He catches on to 20th century technology very quickly.
* ItsPersonal: He feels this way towards the Pack and at several points has to remind himself that getting revenge on them is still less important than protecting his clan.
* {{Keet}}: As described by his voice actor Thom Adcox-Hernandez.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: The smallest of the Manhattan clan, and also the smartest.
* TheSmartGuy: He developed considerable tech-savvy in a ''very'' short time.
* [[spoiler:StraightGay: According to WordOfGay.]]

!!Angela

--> '''Voiced by''': Brigitte Bako

[[quoteright:172:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Angela_8681.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:172:I was raised by humans. There's no reason we can't all live in harmony.]]

Born and raised in Avalon, she joins Goliath in order to see what the world outside is like and to better know her father, Goliath.
----
* ActionGirl: She can handle herself in a fight.
* AffirmativeActionGirl: She was specifically introduced to address the lack of a positive female gargoyle in the main cast.
* BadassAdorable: Cute, sweet, and naļve, but she can kick ass with the best of them.
* BareYourMidriff: In the comics.
* BrainyBrunette: She's highly intelligent.
* TheChick: Definitely the most naļve and least worldly of the cast, and also the most confident that humans and gargoyles can co-exist peacefully.
* CuteLittleFangs: Much like her mother's.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Very attractive, especially by gargoyle standards.
* HelloNurse: When you're the only female of their species within a few-thousand-mile radius (who isn't a [[BloodKnight genocidal]] [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen ex-wife]]...)
* InTheBlood: Goliath's fear for her due to the other half of Angela's parentage.
* MeaningfulName: Just happens to have a [[OppositesThemeNaming karmically opposite name]] to ''Demona''...
* ShesGotLegs: Just like her mother.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She and Broadway. Aaaaawwwww.
* SixthRanger: She joined the Manhattan clan well after the start of the series.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: To her mother Demona. Her hair and skin tones match daddy Goliath's spot-on too.
* UglyGuyHotWife: The Hot Wife to Broadway's UglyCute Guy.
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl]]: To Goliath at first, and manages to make him proud.
* WideEyedIdealist: The exact opposite of her mother concerning views on humans. See her quote at the top of the section.

!!Hudson

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/EdAsner

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hudson_661.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:350:But I know something you don't. Something that only comes with age. I know how to wait.]]

Previous leader of the Wyvern clan. Now he spends most of his days watching television and enjoying his well-earned rest.
----
* {{Acrofatic}}: While being much older than the rest and about as heavy-set as Broadway, he's still astoundingly agile.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Before ceding his position to Goliath.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard: Notable as being the only gargoyle in the main cast to have one.
** BadassGrandpa: He's the oldest of the clan and, while he's not as physically fit as he used to be, he still holds his own.
** BadassInCharge: Until he stepped down in favour of Goliath.
** HandicappedBadass: He can only see through one of his eyes.
** RetiredBadass: He used to be TheLeader of the clan, but stepped down in Goliath's favor.
* CoolOldGuy: His age hasn't slowed Hudson down in the badass department.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments.
--> '''Goliath''': Surely you know I'm not in the habit of playing childish pranks and laughing maniacally in the dark.
--> '''Hudson''': Do ye even know ''how'' to laugh maniacally?
* EyeScream: A blast from the Archmage blinded one of his eyes.
* GeniusBruiser: Though well-past his prime, he easily outsmarts Xanatos and Demona when forced to face them alone.
* MentorArchetype: He was Goliath's in the backstory. His "name" among Goliath's generation was even "Mentor".
* MyGreatestFailure: Being unable to protect Prince Malcolm from nearly being killed in the past haunts him even in the present.
* NeverLearnedToRead: Like Broadway, but he is greatly embarrassed by this instead. He eventually learns and seems to especially enjoy reading newspapers.
* TheObiWan: Slips into this because his great age also grants him great wisdom.
* OldSoldier: He's even addressed as such, particularly in the days before he was given a name. (Demona still tends to call him this.)
* TeamDad: Broadway ''is'' his biological son, too.
%%* WarriorTherapist
* WeaponOfChoice: His trademark sword.

!!Bronx

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/FrankWelker

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bronx_3837.JPG]]

A gargoyle beast of the Manhattan Clan. Dislikes robots.
----
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: We never get a straight answer on what exactly Bronx is, a non-sentient subspecies of gargoyles or what, but he certainly acts like a dog. WordOfGod says he's a gargoyle beast, a species separate from but closely related to gargoyles. While they superficially resemble dogs, a better analogy for their relation to gargoyles would be the relation between humans and chimpanzees.
* AscendedExtra: Prior to "Avalon," Bronx tended to have very little face time, an unfortunate side effect of having no wings and no ability to speak. Also, of course, a dog(-like creature) attacking any human is pretty tough to arrange on a family-oriented show without [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar offending somebody]]. The World Tour [[TheBusCameBack increased his presence]] quite a bit.
* BigDamnHeroes: Every once in a while.
* BigFriendlyDog: To friends.
** AngryGuardDog: To enemies.
* ADayInTheLimelight: The episodes "The Hound Of Ulster" and "A Bronx Tale."
* EvilDetectingDog: Zigzagged.
* FriendToAllChildren: He loves Alex, and his kindness towards kids carries over into the ''Goliath Chronicles'' as well as the final issue of the Marvel comics run.
* GentleGiant: For a hulking gargbeast, Bronx is incredibly sweet to his friends.
* HeroicDog: At least, if we're prepared to relax the definition of 'dog.'
* TeamPet: He's basically the clan's pet dog.
* WallCrawl: The only clan member who can't glide, so he claws his way up buildings instead.

!!Katana

[[quoteright:139:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Katana_6644.JPG]]

Only appearing briefly in the comic continuation, she's Brooklyn's mate from [[JidaiGeki Edo Period]] Ishimura.
----
%%* ActionGirl
* BelligerentSexualTension: [[WordOfGod Greg]] stated that, in their relationship, there would "be conflict," and then he mentioned [[MuchAdoAboutNothing Benedick and Beatrice]].
* DualWielding: A katana and a wakizashi combo.
* HimeCut: With bonus top knot/pony tail.
* JidaiGeki: From the Edo period, actually.
* MamaBear: Hard to tell from what little we saw of her, but when Angela asked to hold her egg, she seemed at least hesitant.
* PaperFanOfDoom: Some fans are stored on her belt.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue, black-haired gargoyle to Brooklyn's white-haired coloration. [[BelligerentSexualTension Given the nature of their relationship]], it would be logical to assume the metaphor extended to their personalities as well, with Katana being cool and patient to Brooklyn's more hot-headed nature.
* {{Tsundere}}: Could be inferred from WordOfGod's description. Whether or not she could be described as a gargoyle [[RanmaOneHalf Akane]]...less so.
* TheVoiceless: Only appeared in four or so panels, and not a single line of dialogue.

!!The Captain of the Guard

--> '''Voiced by''': Ed Gilbert

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/CaptainoftheGuard_5323.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:No, I cannot let this happen again.]]

The captain of the Wyvern Castle guard. At the start of the series, he is sympathetic to the gargoyles and identifies with them more than with the human population of the castle. [[spoiler:Trying to grant a better life to the clan, he betrays the castle to Hakon's band of vikings, expecting them to drive out the humans while leaving the castle to the gargoyles. The plan backfires when Hakon shatters all the gargoyles anyway and tries to put the blame on the captain. Both of them plummet to their deaths before Goliath can have revenge on either of them.]]
----
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He and the gargoyles were subject to this.
* [[spoiler:AntiVillain: Type III]]
* {{Badass}}: He fought the Vikings alongside the gargoyles.
** BadassCape: He's never seen without it.
** BadassMustache: It's quite walrus-like.
** BadassNormal: Just a normal human, yet he's held in high regard by the gargoyles.
* BaldOfAwesome
** [[spoiler:BaldOfEvil: When a bad guy.]]
* [[spoiler:[[BitchInSheepsClothing Bastard In Sheep's Clothing]]: Initially.]]
* TheCaptain: Of Castle Wyvern's guard.
* [[spoiler:DisneyVillainDeath: How he and Hakon meet their end.]]
* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: WordOfGod gives his actual name as "Robert," but that name is never actually used in the series.
* [[spoiler:FatBastard: When a bad guy.]]
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Father To His Gargoyles]]: But not appreciated by his ''human'' soldiers.
* [[spoiler:FindingJudas: He had sympathetic reasons for betraying Katharine, and even after the betrayal, he did everything he could to keep her alive.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Started out as a friend of the gargoyles. Then he betrays the castle to the Vikings (albeit for sympathetic reasons) and then a thousand years later gets tricked by Hakon into seeking revenge against Goliath as a ghost. In the end, though, he realizes his mistakes and turns on Hakon to save Goliath.]]
* LanternJawOfJustice: Just look at it!
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Concerning their treatment of gargoyles.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: Played with. He was already dead, but continued on as a ghost. Not long after he redeems himself though, he finally gets to pass on]].
* [[spoiler:OurGhostsAreDifferent: He was a formless spectre until he and Hakon started draining the life from Goliath.]]
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: All he ever wanted was a better life for the gargoyles. Trusting Hakon, however, was a ''massive'' mistake.]]

!!Princess Katharine

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Katharine2_5377.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:No one threatens my eggs!]]

The ruler of Castle Wyvern. She initially fears the gargoyles and only begrudgingly allows them to stay and defend the castle. After Goliath saves her life from Hakon, she comes to see the error of her ways and does her best to defend the eggs from the gargoyle rookery, moving them to the magical island of Avalon and raising them as her own children.
----
* ArrangedMarriage: She is nearly forced into one by Constantine.
* TheAtoner: After Goliath saves her.
* BrainyBrunette: She was quite learned, although not very wise (at least until the Wyvern massacre).
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her Barkeep]]: In "Awakening," at least, she was known only as "Princess" and "Your Highness."
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: She ''is'' a princess, after all. She wasn't very nice before Goliath saved her life, though.
* FantasticRacism: Initially hated gargoyles as much as any human. After the attack and spending some time on Avalon, she inverts this trope and calls the newborns "my eggs."
* FreudianExcuse[=/=]TragicBigot: Her hated gargoyles began as fear because her father sometimes used them as boogeymen to scare her into obedience.
** HarmfulToMinors: One of the first instances she saw a gargoyle as a young girl is when Hudson failed to protect her father Prince Malcolm from being attacked, which stresses this point even further.
* MamaBear: [[spoiler:To the gargoyle hatchlings on Avalon, as a brainwashed Demona finds out the hard way.]]
* MayDecemberRomance: With Tom.
* NeverMessWithGranny: In present day, on Avalon, it is unwise to threaten the gargoyle newborns.
* PromotionToParent: After agreeing to help raise the gargoyle eggs.
* RoyalBrat: As a child, pre-CharacterDevelopment.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She wasn't afraid to take a shot at Demona to defend "the Eggs".

!!The Magus

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Magus4_3945.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:325:What I did to the gargoyles a thousand years ago was unforgivable. I owed to Goliath to tend the eggs.]]

The castle mage of Wyvern and Princess Katharine's advisor. He is responsible for the Manhattan Clan living to the present day, cursing them to remain as statues for a thousand years in a fit of rage when he believes them to have caused Katharine's death. He tries to atone by raising the eggs from the Wyvern rookery on Avalon. [[spoiler:When the Archmage attack the island, he [[WizardDuel duels]] with the Weird Sisters, though his age has left him severely weakened. He manages to achieve victory in the final moments, but it costs him his life in the process...maybe]].
----

----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: As a child.
** BadassGrandpa: As an adult.
** BadassNormal: No superhuman abilities, weaponry, or skill, yet he takes an active role in the defense of Avalon.
* BreakTheCutie: Subtle, but the Wyvern massacre, seeing Constantine murder King Kenneth, and being separated from his mother had an effect on Tom. Even as an adult, he tears up when recalling Mary's departure.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: At first, he's the only human apart from the Captain to show the gargoyles any kindness.
* HarmfulToMinors: Witnessing the murder of Kenneth by Constantine when he was about 10 years old was a traumatic experience for him, although he seemed to get better during the escape from Edinburgh Castle.

* BadassNormal: An ordinary man, who managed to single-handedly uncover the existence of the Illuminati.
* BadassLongcoat: Matt is almost never seen without his trenchcoat.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Especially about the Illuminati. He is [[ProperlyParanoid 100% right]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Is briefly shown driving with Chavez in "Deadly Force" before being introduced in "The Edge." (Chavez even notes his previous involvement in the preceding case.)
* FairCop: Quite a handsome fellow, and a detective to boot.
* FriendOnTheForce: Even more than Elisa, he uses his power as a policeman to help the Manhattan clan, such as pestering Xanatos to ensure their well-being once they move back into the castle. Once he becomes the head of the Gargoyle Taskforce, he actively uses his position as someone who is supposed to be hunting them to ''protect'' them, and he's none too shy about it.
* ProperlyParanoid:
** As noted above, the Illuminati ''do'' exist and eventually induct Matt into their ranks because they're were impressed at his perseverance in trying to prove it.
** Early in the series, he believed the gargoyles are real despite "proof" that they're robots.
* RedHeadedHero: Just look at him.
* SecretKeeper: After he learned the truth from Mace Malone, Matt convinces Elisa to allow him to meet the gargoyles, and subsequently kept the secret.
* {{What The Hell Hero}}ine: He gives one of these to Elisa after she reveals the gargoyles' existence to him. He already kind of knew, but was angry because she didn't tell him.

!!Jeffrey Robbins

A blind author who befriends Hudson and teaches him the value of reading.
----
* BlindAndTheBeast: A non-romantic example with Hudson.
* BlindBlackGuy: Blinded by shrapnel in Vietnam.
* CoolOldGuy: Old enough anyway.
* DisabilitySuperpower: That he can't see a spell being cast means that he can't be directly affected by (human) magic. This serves him well in "City of Stone," though he doesn't know it.
* HandicappedBadass: In the episode "The Dying of the Light."
* NiceGuy: Quite so. Even after he figures out that Hudson is a gargoyle, he continues to respect him and treat him as a friend.
* ReadingIsCoolAesop: Delivers one to Hudson.
--> '''Hudson:''' I'm too old to learn to read.
--> '''Robbins:''' Oh, hogwash. I had to learn Braille when I was almost forty--and I'll learn ''another'' way to read when I'm ''eighty'' if I have to.

[[caption-width-right:325:Integrity is never easy. It's a daily struggle, a costly struggle.]]

The founder and head of Cyberbiotics, a successful technology firm. Turned cynical by a series of perceived betrayals, he begins to re-consider his view after meeting Goliath.
----
* BadassGrandpa: When [[spoiler:Oberon was going after his grandson, he piloted his ship to stop the guy]]. He also one-shots Goliath with a gadget in his wheelchair.

* GeniusCripple: A technological genius who is slowly dying of a degenerative illness.

* HonorBeforeReason: He admits that valuing integrity over everything else has cost him dearly throughout his life.
* HumansAreBastards: He thinks. He hates it when people don't take responsibility for their own actions.
* WhatHaveIBecome: He wanted to escape his old and crippled body by possessing a magic golem, until Goliath [[WhoWantsToLiveForever talked him out of it]].
* UglyGuyHotWife: With Anastasia Rendard, although they divorced before the series started.

[[caption-width-right:325:In the Labyrinth, justice prevails, even for those who don't believe in it.]]

Elisa's younger brother. He starts out as a pilot in the NY police force, but is manipulated into becoming Xanatos's helicopter pilot late in the first season. Xanatos and Anton Sevarius later use him as a test subject in their experiments to create their own gargoyle-like beings, resulting in Derek being mutated into a panther/bat/eel hybrid and renaming himself "Talon." He becomes the leader of the Labyrinth Clan, providing homes and protection for the homeless of New York.
----
* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Little Brother]]: He rejects attempts by Elisa to (as he sees it) interfere with his life.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: Of the Mutates.
* BigLittleBrother: Even before he was mutated.
* EasilyForgiven: Goliath bore Talon no grudge for their conflict in "The Cage".
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: He ends up in a relationship with Maggie, a fellow victim of Sevarius's experiment.
* HotBlooded: He immediately blamed and went after Goliath with only circumstantial evidence.
* TheLeader: Of the Labyrinth clan, despite his initial insistence that the clan would have no leader. His clan insisted otherwise.
%%* LeeroyJenkins: Initially.
* LegoGenetics: Panther, bat, and electric eel DNA mixed into human.
* MyBelovedSmother: This is initially inverted when his mother is the only member who supports his idea of working for Xanatos and following his own path in life.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he realises that Xanatos had been playing him from the very beginning.
* OfficialCouple: With Maggie as of "Kingdom."
* PhlebotinumRebel: He turned on Xanatos after realising who had truly been responsible for his mutation.
* ShockAndAwe: Due to the electric eel DNA that Sevarius included in the mutagen that transformed him.
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: After Derek is changed into Talon, he wants to hide his identity from Elisa to spare her the distress of knowing what happened to him. But this comes to naught when the unknowing Elisa is speaking to Talon, and Talon lets slip something that he and Elisa used to exchange with each other as brother and sister.
-->'''Elisa''': I promise. Cross my heart.
-->'''Talon''': Hope to d-?
-->'''Elisa''': --Derek?!
* UnwittingPawn: Several times. Xanatos manages to turn him against both his sister and the gargoyles for a distressingly long time.

!!Maggie Reed

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/KathSoucie

A young homeless woman who is duped by Sevarius into becoming a test subject for his mutate program. Out of the Mutates, she is initially the least accepting of her transformation and sees herself as a "monster" until Talon talks some sense into her.
----
* CatGirl: A girl who is turned into a cat.
* DeathSeeker: In "The Cage," she almost becomes one. When Sevarius prepares an "antidote" to the mutation, she is willing to risk drinking what is almost certainly poison because she doesn't think living as a monster is worth it.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: To the point that she was willing to take a potentially fatal serum for the sake of changing back to human. Talon manages to talk her out of it.
* LegoGenetics: A victim of it.
* NonActionGuy: Female version. Like the other mutates, she has enhanced strength, agility and can [[ShockAndAwe shoot lightning]], but hates fighting and stay out of them as much as she can.
* OddNameOut: She is the only one of the four mutates who keeps her human name after the transformation (well, almost, she is often referred to as "[[Theatre/CatOnAHotTinRoof Maggie the Cat]]" by other characters).
* OfficialCouple: With Derek as of "Kingdom."
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The only female of the Mutates.
* ShockAndAwe: Like the other Labyrinth clan mutates.
* {{ShoutOut}}: Maggie the Cat? [[Theatre/CatOnAHotTinRoof Nice]].

!!Claw

Another one of the Mutates. The trauma surrounding his transformation left him mute, thus he never utters a single word during his screentime.
----
* TheBigGuy: The biggest and strongest of the Mutates.
* [[CowardlyLion Cowardly Tiger]]: Initially.
* CuteMute: Mute, and a nice guy.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: During his brief role as a henchman to Fang in "Kingdom."

[[caption-width-right:325:There are forces at war within me and until that battle is decided, no living gargoyle is safe...from Coldstone.]]

A gargoyle cyborg created by Xanatos and Demona from the remains of three of the lost in the Wyvern massacre, and animated by a combination of science and sorcery. Unfortunately, the three souls inhabiting the body don't always get along; two are mates, but the third is jealous and wants the female for himself. They were collectively known as just "Coldstone" until near the end of the series, when Xanatos created two additional robot bodies so each of the three had their own; now the main personality is Coldstone, his mate is Coldfire, and the evil one is Coldsteel.
----
* AllThereInTheScript: Before being separated and given their "Cold_____" names, the scripts referred to the individual gargoyles as [[Theatre/{{Othello}} Othello, Desdemona and Iago]].
* ArmCannon: Built into his right arm.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Even after relaxing the standards for an imaginary species and again for bionic support systems, a body with immune systems from three (four?) different sources should be suffering a lot of health problems. Possibly justified by the fact that Coldstone was created by a combination of [[AWizardDidIt Xanatos' science and Demona's magic]], and the normal rules of gargoyle biology (such as stone sleep during the day) don't apply to Coldstone.
* BadassBaritone: Othello/Coldstone.
* ChangedMyMindKid: [[spoiler:Coldstone and Coldfire officially rejoin the Manhattan Clan at the end of the comics continuity.]]
* CombatTentacles: Coldsteel's weapons in his new body.
* EnemyWithin: Iago/Coldsteel
** EnemyWithout: Iago/Coldsteel becomes this after gaining his own body.
* EvilSoundsDeep: When Iago is in control.
* HealingFactor: Coldsteel's new body is shown being able to self-repair parts of its body.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Iago's corrupting presence kept him at arms' length for much of the series as an untrustworthy WildCard.
* LivingStatue: He is a collection of three shattered gargoyles brought to life through Demona's sorcery.
* LoveTriangle: Coldstone and Coldfire are mates, but Coldsteel wants Coldfire for himself.
* HollywoodCyborg: To the point where one leg has a length of cybernetics connecting his calf to his ankle.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[MeaningfulName Iago]]. Go figure.
* PhlebotinumRebel: He turned on Xanatos and Demona when he realised that there should be more to life than mere survival.
* PlayingWithFire: Coldfire's flamethrowers.

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Griff_7926.png]]
[[caption-width-right:325:The more things change, the more they stay the same!]]

A gargoyle from London, Griff fought in the Battle of Britain and was brought to the year 1996 by a time-travelling Goliath. He later befriends the returned King Arthur and joins him in his quest to find Merlin, receiving a knighthood in the process.
----
* BrainyBrunette: He's smart enough to help King Arthur figure out the riddle that leads him to Manhattan and Exalibur.
* CuttingTheKnot: To beat Macbeth to where Excalibur was hidden in a hedge maze, Griff decided to use the lightning gun to make a shortcut.
* TheLancer: To King Arthur; a young and inexperienced buck accompanying the old veteran.
* TheLostLenore: He is strongly implied to have been this to Una.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Though he seems to adapt fairly quickly.
* GentlemanAdventurer: It's the British accent.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: For only being in one episode together, Arthur and Sir Griff develop and foreshadow a most spectacular bromance.
* MythicalMotifs: Resembles a [[OurGryphonsAreDifferent griffin]], hence the name.
* WeaponOfChoice: The Lightning Gun he appropriated from Banquo in the episode "Pendragon."

!!Una

--> '''Voiced by''': Sarah Douglas

The leader of the London Clan and one of the shopkeepers of their magic store, Into the Mystic.
----

* MagicKnight: A sorceress and skilled fighter.
* MythicalMotifs: Resembles a {{unicorn}}.
* PinkMeansFeminine: It's the pink dress.

Una's mate and one of the shopkeepers of Into the Mystic.

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Macbeth_8104.PNG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:I'm just so...tired.]]

The historical king of Scotland. After losing his kingdom and family, he seeks to find and kill the one responsible: Demona.
----
* ActuallyADoombot: In the ''The Price'', Macbeth were actually a robot. Xanatos was responsible for them however, not Macbeth.
* AffablyEvil: Polite and honorable, he was unwilling to attack the gargoyles as they slept, and wouldn't have attacked them at all if it weren't for his obsessive desire for revenge against Demona.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Macbeth isn't actively malevolent, although he is willing to use some amoral means of avenging himself upon Demona.
* AntiVillain: Both Type I and II.
** AntiHero: In the post-series comics.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBaritone: Courtesy of John Rhys-Davies.
** BadassBeard: He's had one for his entire adult life (all 960-odd years of it).
** BadassGrandpa: He's biologically 52, chronologically close to 1000, and he can handle any of the gargoyles in single combat, even managing to come close to subduing ''all'' of the Manhattan clan in their first encounter.
** BadassLongcoat: In the present day, Macbeth almost always wears a black duster.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Twice over. Started out a BadassNormal, then acquired immortality courtesy of the Weird Sisters and Demona, then learned sorcery at some unspecified point.
* BeardOfEvil: While he acts as an antagonist to the clan.
* CoolOldGuy: ''Very'' old, in fact.
* DeathSeeker: Initially. Even some of his later schemes seem suicidal, though that may be because he knows that nothing can kill him except Demona.
* DirtyOldMan: When he was under the Weird Sisters' spell in "High Noon," he seemed to find Demona's and Elisa's wrestling particularly...diverting.
* DisneyDeath: When Canmore lethally stabs him in the backstory of "City of Stone," and when Elisa lethally shoots Demona in "Sanctuary."
* DragonWithAnAgenda: In his first appearance, he takes a job as a gargoyle hunter on Xanatos' behalf, as part of his own BatmanGambit to lure out Demona. He even notes that the only reason he took money to do X's dirty work is because it would have been suspicious to do it for free. Averted in later appearances, where he makes no pretense of being anything other than his own independent faction [[spoiler:except when under the Weird Sisters' control]].
* EvilLaugh
* EvilSoundsDeep: See "BadassBaritone".
* FantasticRacism: Averted, unlike many other humans who were wronged by Demona. He focuses his hatred exclusively on her and doesn't have much of a problem with any other gargoyles.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He dons the Hunter's mask in "City of Stone" to fight Demona (the first three Hunters having all been bitter enemies to Macbeth), and was willing to disregard the lives of Xanatos, the gargoyles, and the fate of everyone in New York for the sake of his vengeance.
* HonorBeforeReason: He refuses to attack gargoyles while they're in stone sleep, but he has no qualms against fighting them when they're conscious and can fight back.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: The only way Macbeth can die is if he kills or is killed by Demona. He spent "City of Stone" actively trying to accomplish this.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: More like "I want my beloved to be safe"; in the eleventh century, Macbeth broke off his relationship with Gruoch for the sake of her safety (refusing to let her go could have led to them both being executed for defying Duncan's decree that Gruoch marry Gillecomgain).
* KingIncognito: The comics show that when Robert the Bruce of Scotland fought against the English in the late 13th or early 14th century, Macbeth fought alongside him. Presumably, nobody knew that he was ''the'' Macbeth.
* KneelBeforeZod: Macbeth demanded that King Arthur kneel before him. It doesn't work and later, Macbeth ended kneeling before Arthur.
* MagicKnight: He's primarily a straight-forward fighter, but has been shown to be a capable sorcerer on several occasions.
* NobleDemon: Even more than Xanatos. He can be extremely ruthless when he feels it's called for, but he is also a firm believer in duty and honor. Goliath nearly breaks him out from under [[spoiler: the Archmage's brainwashing]] by reminding him of this fact.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Closer to 990, actually.
* SpeakIllOfTheDead: "Canmore, your father was an evil man who deserved his fate."
* VillainousFriendship: He was on good terms with his henchmen, Banquo and Fleance (although he wasn't above threatening them while searching for the Scrolls of Merlin), even informing them of his immortality and having them come to his wedding. Though by the comics he tersely mentions that they've since parted ways and they signed up with the Quarrymen.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: He and Demona were once comrades, and even friends, until her betrayal in 1058.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Against Demona, on occasion, although his motives in seeking her death are more personal than altruistic.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: His initial plans were all about goading Demona into killing him because he couldn't stand living forever. [[spoiler:After "City of Stone," Goliath talks him out of it and he looks for things to occupy himself. While he never believes LivingForeverIsAwesome, he doesn't want to die anymore.]]
* WorthyOpponent: One of the only humans who can match Goliath in hand-to-hand combat ''without'' genetic enhancements, PoweredArmor or the like, but also an opponent who share's the gargoyle leader's old-school warrior's values.
** Even while under the Weird Sisters' control, he relished the chance to fight King Arthur, remarking that he'd always wanted to test his skills against "the best".
* [[YoungerThanTheyLook Younger Than He Looks]][=/=][[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than He Looks]]: He's legitimately been ''both'' -- [[spoiler:when he was 35, he traded his youth to Demona in exchange for an alliance, and aged to 52, thus looking older than he really was. However, said trade wound up making them both immortal at that age, so he has continued to look 52 even on reaching his present-day age of roughly one thousand.]]

Yes, THAT King Arthur. Per the Arthurian mythos, he is initially kept in a magical slumber on the island of Avalon, but is awakened by Elisa seeking assistance during the Archmage's attack on the Avalon clan. After the Archmage's defeat, he heads out into the world to seek his old sword Excalibur and his old friend Merlin.
----
* {{Badass}}: He's a warrior king. Macbeth, no slouch himself, refers to him as "the best".
** BadassBeard: Distinguished and impressive.
** BadassGrandpa: Even without his centuries under the Hollow Hill, Arthur is at least old enough to have some gray in his hair.
* CarryABigStick: He fight with a mace until he retrieves Excalibur.
* {{Excalibur}}: Take a wild guess.
** NamedWeapons
* EleventhHourRanger: During the Avalon arc.
* EternalEnglish: He has no problem communicating with anyone despite having been asleep since the 6th century by his own account.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He's around 1500 years old.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Helps out in the Avalon arc and later.
* WalkingTheEarth: What he proceeds to do after the Archmage's defeat. His search for Merlin was intended as the basis of its own spin-off, ''Pendragon'', which unfortunately was never made (though the Stone of Destiny arc in the comics continuation is essentially a preview of it).

* DirtyCoward: When confronted by Goliath, Hakon tried to blame the Captain for the Wyvern massacre.
* DisneyVillainDeath: While Hakon struggled with the Captain, they both wound up falling over a cliff to their deaths.

* FateWorseThanDeath: After his DisneyDeath, he was stuck in the castle he raided for over a thousand years with nothing to do but wallow in his own hate.
* [[HornyVikings Horny Viking]]: Mercifully, he and the other vikings don't wear horned helmets, but they still fit the trope.

Goliath's former love and one of the co-conspirators in what became the Wyvern massacre. Blaming humans for her misfortunes, she has spent the last thousand years seeking to exterminate them.
----
* TheAloner: Seeing nearly all of the Wyvern Clan slaughtered by the vikings, followed by decades of watching the remnants of her species being slaughtered by the Hunter and his human allies (often through her own fault, though she remains in denial about that), have left her completely, helplessly, maddeningly alone. Centuries of endless pursuit by the Canmore dynasty (See "The Hunters" below) have made her even more bitter.
* TheApprentice: In her youth, to the Archmage.
* ArchEnemy: She practically collects them. The Hunters, Macbeth, Goliath, Brooklyn, Elisa...
* AxCrazy: On occasion.
* {{Badass}}: The real reason why Macbeth and his subjects called her Demona: She fights like a demon.
* BareYourMidriff: In her default outfit.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Puck grants her wish not to turn to stone during the day anymore...by making her become human during the day!
* BerserkButton: She's got an entire console of berserk buttons, although her hatred of Elisa is probably the newest and most reliable.
* BigBad: She's the second most recurring villain after Xanatos, and her plans tend to be the most dangerous and destructive, since she's out for {{Revenge}} on the whole human race. [[spoiler:She's also the main villain of "Hunter's Moon," which is effectively the GrandFinale for the canon show]].
* BigBadDuumvirate: With Xanatos, until "City of Stone."
* CarryABigStick: Demona other WeaponOfChoice is a mace (the other being various laser rifles).
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: She has ultimately betrayed just about every group she has ever worked with. (Most notably the Wyvern Clan in the backstory of "Awakening," the Manhattan Clan in "Awakening" present time, Macbeth in the backstory of "City of Stone," Xanatos in "City of Stone" present time, and Thailog in "The Reckoning.")
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: As Dominique Destine.
* CursedWithAwesome: ''Twice''. First when [[spoiler:she's linked to Macbeth so neither can die except at the hand of the other. There is a fairly hefty downside, but still IMMMORTALITY!]]. Then, [[spoiler:Puck gives her a parting "gift" of human form during the day. She's angry at first, but it's a big help for her nefarious plans]].
* CuteLittleFangs: As showed off on the rare occasion that she smiles, and the not so rare occasion that she snarls
* TheCynic: Demona believes the worst in ''everyone''. Even Macbeth, whom she had known and been allied with for decades, was betrayed the instant that he said something that ''might'' be interpreted as an intent to betray her.
* DarkActionGirl: Evil, seductive, and a very skilled warrior.
* DebtDetester: After Macbeth helped her kill Gillecomgain (Demona herself having helped Macbeth twelve years prior), she was glad to be "even" with Macbeth. An odd example; the debt Demona detested was one that Macbeth owed ''to'' her.
* DisneyDeath: Her link with Macbeth ensures that she "dies" if she's close enough to him when he "dies." As mentioned in Macbeth's section, this happened when Canmore stabbed Macbeth in "City of Stone," and when Elisa shot Demona herself in "Sanctuary."
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Bad Women Love Their Daughters]]
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench: As Dominique Destine. She drops the accent later however.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Despite having been allies with Macbeth for nearly forty years, she had no trouble whatsoever believing that he would readily betray her and her clan for his own gain. The consequences of her reaction to this were, to say the least, devastating for all involved.
* EvilCounterpart: A pretty extreme example as she's one to [[UpToEleven Goliath, Elisa, and Angela.]]
* EvilLaugh
* EvilMatriarch: She loves Angela so much, she's willing to kill humanity to protect her. Well, she was going to kill humanity ''anyway'', but she really loves Angela.
* EvilPlan: The total and complete extinction of the human race.
* EvilRedhead: She's evil, and she's a redhead.
* [[EvilSorcerer Evil Sorceress]]: Another given; she's evil, and she's a sorceress.
* FaceHeelTurn: In her BackStory.
** {{Fallen Hero}}ine
* FantasticRacism: She utterly despises humanity.
* FauxAffablyEvil: On the rare occasion that she isn't a walking pile of seething, omnicidal rage.
* FemmeFatalons: Not just her gargoyle talons, but even as ''Dominique Destine'', she files her fingernails into sharp points.
* FieryRedhead: As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
* ForWantOfANail: Most of the main events of the story started because of her including the destruction of the clan at Castle Wyvern, the creation of The Hunter, and of course [[spoiler: [[FutureMeScaresMe her own paranoia about humanity itself.]]]]
* [[spoiler:FutureMeScaresMe]]: [[spoiler:Which, unfortunately, sets up the StableTimeLoop that turned her into "future me" in the first place.]]
* FootPopping: Believe it or not, she done so while kissing Macbeth in human form.
* GreenEyedMonster: She still grudgingly carries feelings for Goliath, but characteristically this just means she tries to [[MurderTheHypotenuse murder any hypotenuses that look Goliath's way]], particularly Elisa Maza.
* HeelRealization: Has these several times, for a BigBad. Unfortunately, she proves herself a grand champion at [[IgnoredEpiphany ignoring them]].
* HeroesWantRedheads: She was Goliath's mate, after all. Averted when her true personality showed.
* HotGirlsAreBitches: Very attractive, as well as untrustworthy, vicious, and quite possibly insane.
* HotWitch: She does have magical abilities after all.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Demona sees herself as the self-proclaimed savior of her race, and that Goliath and those who stand with him will be the death of the race. Never mind the fact that she herself caused the birth of the Hunter, their generations, and indirectly the Quarrymen, whose sole purpose is to destroy all Gargoyles with extreme prejudice. And she had the gall to say Goliath would be the death of all of them? If anything, SHE was the one who nearly caused Gargoyle extinction.
** She claims that Goliath had been corrupted by humanity, yet Demona has, over the years, become more "human" than Goliath ever has.
** In ''Sanctuary'', Demona and Thailog are lovers. Demona accuses Goliath of being jealous and paranoid of their love. In reality, Demona is jealous of Goliath's love with Elisa and is truly paranoiac herself.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Her strongest belief.
* IgnoredEpiphany: One time the Weird Sisters lead her on a series of questions that forced her to realize that she had no one to blame for her pain but herself. She promptly forgot this a minute later.
* ImmortalImmaturity: She is proud of being stronger and "younger" than Hudson.
* KillAllHumans: Her primary goal in life.
* KnightTemplar: Subverted; she's ''convinced'' herself her cause is noble, but it's really just her lashing out at the world due to all the pain she's brought upon herself.
* LadyInRed: As Dominique Destine.
* LadyMacbeth: Shades of this in her relationships with Goliath, Macbeth and even Xanatos. Inverted with her relationship with Thailog, as he's far more straightforwardly evil and is really using her to advance his own ends.
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: There is no deadline for her to exterminate humans. She can keep trying until Doom's Day.
* MagicKnight: She uses her powerful magic (she's probably the strongest non-Child-of-Oberon mage in the show, not counting the Archmage's enhanced form) and formidable combat skills about evenly.
* MamaBear: Would rather pull an EnemyMine than let Angela be hurt.
* ManipulativeBitch: She even pulled this on Angela, her own ''daughter''. It failed BADLY.
** EvenEvilHasStandards: Even ''she'' regretted doing that afterwards.
* MeaningfulName: Her alias "Dominique Destine" literally means "Divine Destiny."
** Also [[spoiler:Macbeth]] gave her the name "Demona" because he said she fought like a demon.
* MsFanservice: One of the most attractive females in the cast, and not especially shy about it.
* [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone My God, What Have I...]] [[IgnoredEpiphany What Have THEY Done?]]: She came close to this but then dismissed it.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Demona the demon.
* NeverMyFault: Employed in a ''very'' serious fashion. If there is one defining character flaw for Demona, this is it. Most of her troubles and emotional agonies are entirely her fault, and her refusal to admit any responsibility on her part is the basis for her bitterness AND her racism, all of which she formed mostly to avoid the overwhelming guilt she would feel.
-->'''Goliath:''' None of this would have happened if it weren't for you.\\
'''Demona:''' Don't say that, Goliath!
* OppositesThemeNaming: With Angela, who was given her name as a way to parallel her mother's.
* NotSoDifferent: Demona and John Castaway.
** Also Demona and Goliath [[spoiler:when they both want revenge against the hunters for nearly killing Angela. And when presented with a choice to save an innocent life or pursue revenge, they both chose the former. (Goliath saving Katharine rather than killing Hakon and the Captain; Demona saving the young Macbeth rather than killing Gillecomgain.)]]
** Demona an Goliath again in [[spoiler: "Hunter's Moont, part 3" where Demona invoke this trope to Goliath after the latter wanted revenge against the Hunters. It doesn't last.]]
* PainfulTransformation: Her shift to human during the day and back again. Lampshaded in "High Noon."
--> '''Macbeth''': I thought you said that the changeling Puck turns you into a human during the day as a gift.\\
'''Demona''': Puck's gifts always come with a price.
* ParentalAbandonment: Even knowing that one of the eggs from the Wyvern Rookery was her own, she didn't lift a talon to stop the Magus and Katharine from "stealing" them.
* PetTheDog: Few and far between, but her hatred of Goliath and of all humanity doesn't prevent her from feeling protective (in her own twisted way) toward the rest of the Clan, whom she still hopes to convince that she is right.
* PsychoExGirlfriend: To Goliath.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Her GlowingEyesOfDoom are red, and she plays this seven shades of strait compared to Angela.
* RevengeByProxy: "Their descendants shall pay. I will have blood for blood!"
* SecretIdentity: As Dominique Destine, she conceals her true self.
* SheCleansUpNicely: [[spoiler: Her "wedding" to Macbeth proved this.]]
* ShesGotLegs: Long and uncovered.
* [[HeWhoFightsMonsters She Who Fights Monsters]]: Never shown better than in "City of Stone", where she takes to smashing [[TakenForGranite petrified]] humans with a mace, much like when Hakon massacred her clan. [[NeverMyFault Demona herself]], however, would arguably view this as poetic justice.
* TheUnfettered: ''Nothing'' is sacred for Demona, and no-one, with the possible exception of Angela, is not expendable in her quest to eradicate humanity.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Thailog, [[spoiler:until he betrays her]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She ''was'' a NiceGirl, who was constantly mistreated by humanity which resulted in her present state.
* TheVamp: Towards Brooklyn in "Temptation".
* WaifFu: Despite being a smaller-than-average gargoyle, Demona can fight on even terms with heavyweights like Goliath and Thailog. The series does point out that Demona's combat prowess is boosted by both centuries of experience, as well as being [[InsaneEqualsViolent crazier than a shithouse rat]].
* WhenSheSmiles: She actually has a really beautiful genuine smile, which is rarely ever seen because of her [[SlasherSmile malicious nature.]]
* WithUsOrAgainstUs: "If you are not my ally, then you are my enemy."
* WomanScorned: She had this reaction when [[spoiler: she thought Macbeth had betrayed her in the past.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: By the end of City of Stone, it's hard not to feel sorry for her, even though she's long since passed the MoralEventHorizon.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler: [[ForWantOfANail Slashing Gillcomgain's face created the Hunter, and his legacy that haunts her to this very day.]]]]
* YouAreWhatYouHate: Whenever the sun is up, at least.
* YouNeedToGetLaid: According to WordOfGod, it's one of the reasons (in a very long list) why Demona is very bitter. Centuries alone and being periodically in the heat didn't do any good to her mental health.

!!David Xanatos

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JonathanFrakes

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Xanatos3_9312.PNG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:Pay a man enough and he'll walk barefoot into Hell.]]

Billionaire responsible for breaking the Magus' spell over the Gargoyles. Determined, practical and brilliant, he searches for eternal life and comfort, and finds something altogether different.
----
* AffablyEvil: Impeccably polite to his enemies. He seems to legitimately like Goliath most of the time, although the feeling is almost never mutual.
** In the non-canon ''Goliath Chronicles'', he eventually becomes a benefactor and friend to the clan. In the comic continuation, Goliath and Brooklyn remark that they still don't consider Xanatos 100% trustworthy, but nonetheless trust him enough not to smash them during the day.
* AmazonChaser: For Fox. You can see them sparring.
* AntiHero: After his sort-of-HeelFaceTurn. He's ''still'' an amoral Machiavellian bastard, but one who's willing to at least partially work with the gargoyles rather than always against them and whose PetTheDog relationship with his family is much more pronounced.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type I]], while he was developing toward his HeelFaceTurn.
* ArchEnemy: To Goliath initially, and others.
* {{Badass}}: In powered armor, he's a match for Goliath.
** BadassBeard: A neatly trimmed, and very stylish goatee.
** BadassBookworm: This CEO is no pencil pusher.
** BadassNormal: He can hold his own with Goliath and even ''[[PhysicalGod Oberon]]'' with his own gadgets and know-how.
* TheBadGuyWins: On occasion this blatantly happens, although usually it's more that he is able to accomplish a secondary objective under the noses of the Manhattan Clan. There's a reason [[XanatosGambit the trope for this is named after him]].
* BeardOfEvil: The classic "bad guy" goatee.
* BerserkButton: Quite subtle, but Hudson's needling him about his terror of growing old pushes key places.
* BigBad: In the first half of the series, when he's the most recurring, most intelligent and arguably most dangerous villain. [[spoiler:By the end, while he doesn't quite make a HeelFaceTurn, he is edging more into dark AntiHero territory]].
* BigBadDuumvirate: With Demona, until "City of Stone."
* BoringButPractical: [[spoiler: Puck once appeared to him and offered a choice: one wish from himself, the nigh-omnipotent fey, or a life time of loyal service from his powerless human guise, Owen. Xanatos chose Own. Wishes are nice, but good help is hard to find.]]
* BrainyBrunette: He's highly intelligent.
* BreakTheHaughty: Seen in "The Gathering." [[spoiler:All the technology and wisdom, aided by the Manhattan Clan, his father and his father-in-law, could not stop [[PhysicalGod Oberon]] from reaching his newborn son.]]
* CaptainErsatz: Considering the series' genesis as a ''{{Hellboy}}'' adaptation, he appears to be loosely modeled on Roderick Zinco, a billionaire who helped the main antagonists in the ''Wake the Devil'' story arc and despite being a bit of a sycophantic dupe is pretty damn devious, going so far as to sell sabotaged equipment to the BPRD, who never actually learn of his involvement even after he accidentally blows himself up. Gets a bit of a RecursiveAdaptation in the ''{{BPRD}}'' comics with Zinco's successor Mr. Pope who has a much more active interest in the occult and wears a suit of PowerArmor. Perhaps as a parody of Xanatos' renowned hyper-competence, he too ends up turning out to be an UnwittingPawn of the real villains' cosmic schemes who is all too aware of what a mess he's made of things.
* TheChessmaster: The original movie especially. He moves the heroes like they were pieces until the end.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: "A man's gotta make a living." We seldom see what that ''means'' but it usually it has to do with high-tech weaponry and medicine.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Xanatos has a contingency for almost everything.
* DarwinistDesire: When he proposed to Fox, he pitched the union in these terms. Then when he realized that, no, he truly loves her.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has a very dry, sharp wit.
* {{Determinator}}: "Nothing terrifies me, because nothing is beyond my ability to change." [[spoiler:Implied to ultimately be averted when his wife and child are threatened, and by Thailog's existence.]]
* EnemyMine: Xanatos had a habit of working with the Manhattan Clan, "City of Stone" being the first and arguably most notable example.
* EvilGenius: He personally built (most of) the technology his billion dollar company sells, and stole the rest from a rival company.
* EvilVirtues: Ambition, Hard Work, [[spoiler:Love]], Patience, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Determination, Loyalty, Honor. (Yea, for being a BigBad, he has a lot of these.)
* FascinatingEyebrow: A frequent expression of his.
* {{Fiction 500}}: He had an entire castle taken apart, shipped from Scotland to New York and reassembled on top of a skyscraper, just to see if the gargoyles on it would wake up. That takes serious discretionary cash.
* FriendlyEnemy: He rather likes the Manhattan Clan, and Goliath in particular, although the feeling isn't mutual (although they eventually stop thinking of him as a pure evil, so that's worth something).
* GracefulLoser: Xanatos always takes losses well and considers revenge beneath him. This may be because he's enough of a MagnificentBastard to rarely completely lose against the Manhattan Clan: [[XanatosGambit even if they foil his primary objective, he usually is able to accomplish something else thanks to their actions. On occasion, the "secondary" objective was what he wanted anyways]].
* HappilyMarried: To Fox.
* HonestyIsTheBestPolicy: In "The Edge."
* ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou: He admits this outright during his chess game with his new bride Fox.
* ImmortalitySeeker: "What good are all the riches in the world if Fox and I [[LivingForeverIsAwesome can't enjoy them forever]]?"
* InkSuitActor: A strange aversion by weird coincidence. Although Xanatos looks almost exactly like Jonathan Frakes, he was designed before Frakes was cast in the role.
* ItsPersonal:
** Coolly defied. Xanatos spent enough money to build a skyscraper expressly to free the gargoyles, funds advanced robotics, cloning and bio-engineering facilities without showing any concern for the costs involved, and spends not a cent on revenge, ever. (He says it's "a sucker's game.")
** Notably, Xanatos played this trope straight ''precisely once'', in "Double Jeopardy," and as a result he suffered his first (arguably only) unqualified defeat.
* LoveIsAWeakness: When Fox is turned into a beast, he maintains a clinical view on the situation, expressing only that his inability to get her back was an unforeseen circumstance and his desire to get the jewel that turned her in the first place. He [[XanatosSpeedChess attempts several plans]], all of which fail to get her back--it is only towards the end when she is nearing death that he reveals his desperation and gives up the jewel to have her back. Afterwards, he tells Goliath coolly that he now knows Xanatos' weakness.
-->'''Goliath:''' Only you would regard love as a weakness.
* MadScientist: Downplayed. Xanatos is shown to be a skilled roboticist--he's explicitly shown working on Coldstone, and is implied to have designed much of the technology used by the Steel Clan, Coyote and his own PoweredArmor--but it's rarely focused on compared to other aspects of his character, and he generally avoids falling into stereotypical MadScientist tropes or mannerisms (well, that one time he and Demona brought Coldstone to life, [[IAlwaysWantedToSayThat he just couldn't resist]]...)
* TheManBehindTheMan: Mastermind behind the Pack.
* MarryForLove: Although he initially didn't believe it, his and Fox's marriage came about because, in the end, they truly love each other.
* MayDecemberRomance: He's 11 years older than Fox
* [[MeaningfulName Meaningful]] ThemeNaming: [[Literature/{{The Bible}} His first name is David, and he initially fights against a bigger enemy named Goliath.]]
* MiddleManagementMook: [[spoiler:He ''intentionally'' holds the lowest rank possible within the Illuminati, so he gets the perks of being a member at all, but without too many eyes on his activities.]]
* MissingMom: According to [[WordOfGod Greg Weisman]], [[spoiler:Xanatos' mother is deceased and his father Petros is unfortunately a widower]].
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: His reaction when Thailog came into his own.
--> "Owen, I think I created a monster."
* NothingPersonal: "You really ''are'' taking this much too personally, you know."
* NerdInEvilsHelmet: "[[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} It's alive! ALIVE!!!]] IAlwaysWantedToSayThat."
* NobleDemon: As noted above, he's the same guy after his HeelFaceTurn, but his evilness drops a notch or two.
* NonActionBigBad: First few episodes only; while a more-than-competent fighter by human standards, he just doesn't have what it takes to compete with the likes of Goliath. Being the consummate MagnificentBastard, though, before the season is over, he's found [[PoweredArmor a solution]].
* PapaWolf: He truly loves his wife and kid.
* PoweredArmor: How he can keep up with the likes of Goliath in combat.
* ReformedButNotTamed: Seemingly so. It's less that his personality changes and more that his priorities shift.
** The non-canon "third season" ''The Goliath Chronicles'' takes this all the way with Xanatos and Fox become good guys and true allies of the gargoyles.
* {{Revenge}}: Defied. "Revenge is a sucker's game."
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: How he originally freed the gargoyles. Money is never an object to him.
* SelfMadeMan: [[spoiler:Via StableTimeLoop.]] His dad isn't impressed with it, though, and calls out his son for being more interested in money than honor.
* SmartPeopleKnowLatin: If you regard the fact that the spell book of the Magus that Xanatos read (the Grimorum Arcanorum) was written in latin. The author was the chief advisor of Caesar Augustus. The only reason why he had to ask Owen for the translation of Demona's spell in "City of Stone" was that he had not heard the incantation himself, and Owen had.
* TranquilFury: Even against Oberon, he stays calm, despite this being one of his most action-packed scenes.
* UnwittingPawn: To Thailog in "Double Jeopardy."
* VillainsOutShopping: Instrumental to his gambit in "Her Brother's Keeper."
* WellDoneSonGuy: He thought he could impress his dad by being a SelfMadeMan, but it's not until he shows himself as a PapaWolf that he finally gets his dad's praise.
* WickedCultured: As a billionaire, he enjoys the finer things in life, such as living in an authentic Scottish castle. As for how he ''became'' a billionaire....
* XanatosGambit: [[TropeNamer Namesake]] of this and its spin-off trope, XanatosSpeedChess.

!!Owen Burnett

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Owen_8163.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:Service is its own reward.]]

Xanatos' right-hand man and confidant. Smart, capable and loyal -- the perfect employee. [[spoiler: He's actually Puck, a trickster spirit that became Owen for kicks, and because Xanatos is "many things, but never boring."]]
----
* AffablyEvil: So polite he borders on TheStoic.
* BattleButler: To Xanatos. Be it fighting or carrying out plans, Owen does it quickly and efficiently.
* CreepyMonotone: He never raises his voice no matter what fiendish deed Xanatos has him doing.
* DeadpanSnarker: Surprising given the rest of his persona. [[spoiler:Or not so surprising.]]
* DisabilitySuperPower: A fist made of stone hurts more than one made of flesh and bone. Xanatos remarks that he makes "good use of his handicap."
* TheDragon: To Xanatos. His official job title is probably "Administrative Assistant".
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Or so it ''seems'' after a spell petrifies his right hand and he uses it for punching. [[spoiler: The fact that he's later revealed to be Puck disqualifies him.]]
* FourEyesZeroSoul: A villain in glasses.
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: much like his employer.]]
* IcyBlueEyes: They help to emphasise his cool detached, stoic demeanor.
* ItAmusedMe: [[spoiler:Owen continues to exist because Puck finds Xanatos' life too much fun to miss]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler: He knew there was no way he could stop Oberon, and admits he's completely outclassed.]]
* PunchClockVillain: He's not really evil; he just works for Xanatos.
* SecretIdentity: [[spoiler:Actually a persona of Puck.]]
* SmartPeopleKnowLatin: As evidenced by his ability to translate Demona's "Stone by night" spell.
* TheStoic: He took his hand turning to stone with a completely straight face, and no sign that he even considered it an inconvenience.
* StraightMan: While Xanatos clearly enjoys what he does, Owen's role is to calmly enforce his employer's will and carry out his plans.
* TakenForGranite: Has a stone arm after dipping it in the Cauldron of Life.
** [[PowerFist And he knows how to use it]].
* UndyingLoyalty: For David Xanatos. [[spoiler:Despite knowing they have ''zero chance'' repelling Oberon, he sticks around.]]

!!Fox

--> '''Voiced by''': Laura San Giacomo
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fox_599.PNG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:Oh, Daddy. You and your integrity. Asking for it wouldn't be any fun at all.]]

Xanatos' true love and equal. Formerly Janine Renard, she legally changed her name to Fox.
----
* ActionMom: As she proved when Oberon tried to abduct Alex.
* AntagonisticOffspring: To her father, albeit in a FriendlyEnemy way.
* BilingualBonus: Anyone who knows French instantly makes the connection between father and daughter well before the official reveal.
* TheChessmaster: The events of "Upgrade" were basically one big chess game she was playing with her husband.
* CunningLikeAFox: [[MeaningfulName Duh]], even if Xanatos overshadows her.
* DarkActionGirl: She's a villainous badass.
* DeadpanSnarker
--> '''Hyena''': [''hitting cockroaches with a rubber band slingshot''] Why do you read that stuff?
--> '''Fox''': [''reading a book on Jean-Paul Sartre''] Because Nietzche's too butch and Kafka [[GeniusBonus reminds me of your little friends over there]].
* EvilRedhead: As befits her name.
* EyepatchOfPower: Not exactly an eyepatch, but that blue tattoo covering her right eye comes close enough.
* FieryRedhead: More determined than hot-tempered, however.
* [[spoiler:HalfHumanHybrid]]: Though she didn't know it herself until "The Gathering."
* HappilyMarried: To David.
* LadyMacbeth: Not that Xanatos wasn't ''already'' amoral, mind you...
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Inverted; her dad is a ''good'' scientist, but she betrayed him by falling for his villainous rival.
* MamaBear: Seen in full force in "The Gathering."
* MarryForLove: Despite initially believing her marriage to David to be a subversion.
* MeaningfulName: As pointed out in CunningLikeAFox, it's a given, but her given name is also meaningful. "Renard" is the name given to the fox character in old French animal tales. There has been talk about the coincidence of Goliath having a nemesis named "David." When you consider that "Janine" is a feminine version of "Jonathon"...
* ReformedButNotTamed: She's no longer an enemy to the clan, but that doesn't make her one of the good guys.
%%* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead
* {{Ubermensch}}: She even chose her own name, rather than keep the one her parents gave her.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Notable for a series where most characters [[LimitedWardrobe always wear the same clothes]], Fox wears quite a variety of different costumes, and almost doesn't really have a "default" outfit like other characters.

!!The Pack

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pack2_3779.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:Left to right: Coyote (2.0 version), Fox, the upgraded versions of Wolf, Hyena, Jackal, and Dingo.]]

A group of mercenaries-turned-TV stars organized and funded by Xanatos, though after their first encounter with the Manhattan Clan they were arrested and turned to crime for good when Xanatos broke them out of prison. The members are:

** '''Fox''' (Laura San Giacomo): See above. Original team leader, but when the Pack broke out of prison she stayed behind to serve out her sentence. She ultimately got an early release for good behavior - just as Xanatos planned, of course.
** '''Wolf''' (Creator/ClancyBrown): The biggest guy on the team and most likely to go straight to brute force. A descendant of Hakon, the viking that sacked Castle Wyvern.
** '''Dingo''' (JimCummings): The tactical expert. He eventually got fed up with the Pack being reduced to common criminals, and found he missed being considered a hero like he was on TV; prompting him to leave the group as well. He eventually got picked up by the Redemption Squad (see below).
** '''Jackal''' (Matt Frewer) and '''Hyena''' (Creator/CreeSummer): A brother/sister pair of twins, and probably the team's most depraved members; WordOfGod is that he's a sociopath while she's a psychopath.
** '''Coyote''' (Creator/JonathanFrakes): A new member who engineered the prison breakout, replacing Fox as team leader. At first thought to be Xanatos, but was soon revealed to be a robot in his likeness. Tends to get [[TheyKilledKennyAgain thrashed and rebuilt by Xanatos every time it appears]], with the successive versions obviously not human. Four versions of Coyote appeared in the series, and a fifth in the comics.
----
* ActuallyADoombot: The first Coyote.
* AIIsACrapshoot: Not in the series itself, but WordOfGod is that, by 2198, Coyote will have become autonomous and turned to conquest.
* AnimalThemeNaming: They all have canine names.
* ArmCannon: Coyote. Dingo with his PowerArmor. Hyena and Jackal with their cybernetics.
* AwesomeAussie: Dingo, natch.
* AxCrazy: Jackal and Hyena, and, to a lesser extent, Wolf.
* BadassBaritone: Wolf, being voiced by Creator/ClancyBrown.
* BadassCrew: They can do a decent job of keeping up with the gargoyles in a fight.
* BadassGrandpa: Wolf.
* BloodKnight: Again, Wolf. Dingo as well, to a lesser extent.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Jackal and Hyena. Even when the Pack split up to work solo, these two stayed as a team.
* BullyingADragon: You think Wolf would have some sense and not pick a fight with Coyote, after he just saw him ripping an iron gate with his hands? How about after Coyote zapped him with just one hand? [[TooDumbToLive Nope]].
* CombatPragmatist: Dingo is the go-to guy for long-range weapons and explosives. The rest of the team are all hand-to-hand combat junkies.
* CrushKillDestroy: Though normally rather calm and competent, Coyote tends to do this.
* DarkActionGirl: Hyena
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: All of them get upgraded one way or another (except Fox, who was gone by then).
** {{Cyborg}}: Jackal and Hyena.
** HalfHumanHybrid[=/=]GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke: Wolf.
** PoweredArmor: Dingo. He eventually upgrades it ''again'' after his HeelFaceTurn, this time [[spoiler: merging with an AI-controlled nanobot swarm]].
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Fox, later Coyote
** TheDragon: Wolf, the most powerful after Fox/Coyote and the most likely to [[TheStarscream try and take over]] from the latter.
** EvilGenius: Dingo, the team's weapons and tactics expert (and also the one with the most common sense).
** TheBrute: Jackal
** DarkChick: Hyena
** TheManBehindTheMan: Xanatos, who is (usually) the ultimate string-puller, but never actually works with the team in the field.
* ForTheEvulz: Jackal, Hyena, and sometimes Wolf really fall into this one.
* GutturalGrowler: Dingo ([[Creator/JimCummings of course]]) and Wolf, especially after the latter's upgrade.
* HeelFaceTurn: Dingo, eventually. Fox's is more of a HazyFeelTurn, as she's ReformedButNotTamed.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: In "The Thrill of the Hunt," although the game in question is gargoyles rather than humans. Wolf's motives in particular resemble those of [[TheMostDangerousGame General Zaroff]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Poor Coyote is often the victim of this. Two times by Goliath using a rail track/construction beam and once by Elisa with a spear.
* LaughingMad: Once Jackal become the avatar of Anubis.
* NoSell: Coyote 4.0 was built with iron from the Cauldron of Life, making it immune to magic.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Wolf, Jackal, and Hyena. Of the others, Coyote doesn't have any other name, Fox had hers legally changed, and Dingo started using his real name more after he left (it's [[spoiler: Harry Monmouth]], by the way).
* OnlySaneMan: Fox and Dingo, which is why the latter eventually quit (Fox basically just got a better offer). Notably, during or after Dingo's Heel Face Turn, his first job is for Fox.
* PrimaryColorChampion: The entire group has yellow, red, and blue as theme colors. Possibly justified as being TV costumes, but that doesn't explain keeping them even after their show ends.
* PsychoForHire: The core Pack covers the whole spectrum; Jackal and Hyena are clearly this; Dingo is a perfectly sane mercenary and Coyote is just doing what Xanatos programmed him to; Wolf is a vicious brute who falls somewhere in between.
* PunchClockVillain: Dingo, definitely; he's just there for the paycheck, and gets increasingly disgusted with his teammates' craziness. Coyote might also count, since he's just following his programming.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: Although they eventually go their separate ways.
* {{Ridiculously Human Robot|s}}: Coyote 1.0 looks exactly like Xanatos, but later versions are rebuilt as an obviously robotic being.
* {{Robosexual}}: Hyena has the hots for Coyote. ''After'' the reveal. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Jackal]] considers this "[[{{Squick}} sicker than usual]]."
* RoboticReveal: Used with Coyote 1.0
* RobotMe: Coyote 1.0 to Xanatos.
* SavageWolf: Take a wild guess.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After their first encounter with the Gargoyles, Fox and Wolf end up in prison, then Jackal and Hyena try to take revenge on Xanatos, and they end up in prison as well. Dingo, however, decided to flee to Europe rather than get stuck with the rest of them. Dingo did return with Coyote 1.0 to break them out eventually. When they fought the Gargoyles with their upgrades, Dingo decided to bail after seeing them lose and having lost faith in his comrades because of how eager they were to give up their humanity and any pretense of being good guys. This time he severed ties permanently, though he did take a job from Fox.
* SixthRanger: Coyote
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: With Fox leaving the Pack, Hyena is the sole female of the group.
* TheSociopath: Jackal is this, per WordOfGod. His sister Hyena is a psychopath.
* TheStarscream: Wolf seems to work fine with Fox, but he clearly doesn't like Coyote and tries several times to take leadership of the Pack from him. It never works.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Coyote is smashed everytime he appears, but since he's a robot, he can be rebuilt.
* ThoseWilyCoyotes: Coyote, though Xanatos named him such as a reflection on ''his own'' Trickster nature; Coyote himself isn't particularly tricky.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Dingo. He's arguably the sanest of the bunch, and the only one who, given the chance, didn't mutilate or mutate himself when the Pack received their upgrades.
* TranshumanTreachery: Sort of, as the treacherous ones were the ones who chose transhumanism when offered; Dingo was uneasy with it and was the one to eventually have a HeelFaceTurn.
* TwoFaced: After half of Coyote 1.0's face was torn off in the RoboticReveal, further versions always included the split face somehow.
* WolverineClaws: Hyena and Jackal.

!!Tony Dracon

--> '''Voiced by''': Richard Grieco
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dracon_9726.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:We have a deal. My word as a Dracon.]]

A crime boss constantly harassed by the gargoyles.
----
* ArchEnemy: To Elisa, though he's not a serious threat to the gargoyles themselves. Unless he's got high-tech weaponry.
* ArmsDealer: His business, at least in "Deadly Force".
* BigBadWannabe: In a lot of superhero stories, a mob boss as powerful as Dracon would be bad news, but here he's thoroughly outclassed by both the gargoyles themselves and most of the other villains.
* LockedIntoStrangeness[=/=]SkunkStripe: After his initial encounter with the gargoyles.
* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll: He continues his work as a crime boss from within his prison in "Turf."
* SmugSnake: He is ''way'' out of his league when it comes to dealing with the gargoyles.

!!The Archmage

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/DavidWarner
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/EnhancedArchmage_2073.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:All my lovely magic...]]

An evil wizard seeking ultimate power, defeated by Hudson and Goliath a thousand years ago, but later comes back with a vengeance.
----
* AscendedExtra: The Archmage was originally as just a one-shot villain for "Long Way to Morning." Creator/GregWeisman didn't think there was that much to the character...until David Warner recorded his lines. Based on Warner's performance, Weisman saw potential to bring the Archmage back and as a greater threat.
* BaldOfEvil: Bald, and evil, of course.
* BeardOfEvil: Quite a long one, at that.
* CardCarryingVillain: A stereotypical evil sorcerer, and he seems to ''really'' get a kick out of it.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: His real name is unknown. Even WordOfGod isn't telling.
* EvilLaugh
* EvilMentor: To the Magus, and to Demona in her youth. WordOfGod is that it was he who first gave her a taste for power, though she'd ''never'' admit it. His cruelty towards her can't have improved her attitude about humans, etiher...
* EvilOldFolks: An old man with aspirations of tyranny and ultimate power.
* EvilSorcerer: For him, it's practically a lifestyle.
** TheArchmage: [[CaptainObvious Well, duh]].
* FutureMeScaresMe / [[OtherMeAnnoysMe Past Me Annoys Me]]: Humorously, technically it's literally also [[spoiler: TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture]], too.
* AGodAmI: After he gets the Grimorum, the Phoenix Gate, and the Eye of Odin, he goes on this big power trip.
* LoopholeAbuse: By literally ''eating'' the Grimorum, Archmage made its power a part of himself, allowing him to take outside magic into Avalon.
* MotiveDecay: A fairly minor example, but when first introduced the Archmage seems mostly interested in getting revenge on Prince Malcolm and doesn't appear to regard Goliath as much more than a pawn. During the Avalon arc Goliath has suddenly become the main target of his vengeance and he never mentions Malcolm (or for that matter Hudson, the actual leader of the gargoyles as far as he knew) although from his point of view it hasn't been very long since that vendetta took up most of his time.
** Justified considering that Goliath was the one who took the Grimorum from him, and thus ended his plan to kill Prince Malcolm, along with the fact that Goliath dodging his final attack caused him to fall in the cliff nearly killing him.
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Due to being saved by his future self.
* PhysicalGod: Graduates to one after absorbing the magic of the Grimorum and wielding the Eye of Odin. [[spoiler: When he loses the Eye, [[PowerIncontinence on the]] [[KarmicDeath other hand]]...]]
* SmugSnake: Incredibly arrogant, and he's not all talk, but he's not as smart as he thinks he is.
* StableTimeLoop: How he cheats death; the future him saved the past him who would then go on to save him and then....
* TakeOverTheWorld: Initially, he didn't even know what to do with his newfound powers and set his sights on Scotland, until his future-self told him of [[TakeOverTheWorld the big picture]].
* TookALevelInBadass: He goes from being a one-shot villain appearing in a flashback who is easily defeated by Goliath to a much more powerful force to be reckoned with.
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn: WordOfGod states that the Weird Sisters pretended to be TheDragon for him, when he was in fact theirs.]]
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: This occurs in "Avalon" during his big fight with Goliath, who is very outclassed:
-->'''Archmage''': I could destroy you with a word.
-->'''Goliath''': [[GetItOverWith Then why don't you]]?
-->'''Archmage''': Because I'm having too much fun!
** Even more glaring: he could have killed the gargoyles during daytime in their own lair in NY. He could have travel in time and learn all of his enemies' secrets and weaknesses. Instead, he give our heroes some time to prepare themselves and then got his ass kicked.
*** Justified in that he was wearing the [[AmplifierArtifact Eye of Odin]], which, in addition to granting tremendous power, also makes the wearer "[[UpToEleven more like him/herself]]." The Archmage was ''already'' a petty, egomaniacal wizard obsessed with vengeance against all who slighted him...

A freelance geneticist specializing in creating mutates and clones - for ''evil!''
----
* BadBadActing: Averted in his first appearance, but every other time he tries to fake something, it's almost painful how bad he is. And hilarious.
* TheEvilGenius: Professionally.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: The Mutates and Wolf's upgrade were his work.
* ForScience: "Plus there's the money...and I do love the ''drama!''"
* ForTheEvulz: Why he does what he does. In addition to science, the money, and, of course the ''drama''!
* KarmaHoudini: He has yet to receive any comeuppance for his crimes.
* LargeHam: Did you expect anything less from ''TimCurry''? In his first appearance, he intentionally played a stereotypical (and older) mad scientist as part of a ruse. He finds playing the role of a LargeHam to be fun.
* MadScientist: And he is damn proud of it.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: No morals at all, actually.
* PlayingWithSyringes: His job in a nutshell.

!!The Hunters

A family of masked vigilantes who have hunted Demona over a millennium, attacking any other gargoyle that enters their sights as well.

!!!The Hunters in general:

* ArchEnemy: Collectively, to Demona.
* BadassNormal: Every single one of them.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The original Hunter, Gillecomgain, devoted his life to kill Demona because she slashed his face. The next ones just did it because she didn't get along with Duncan and Canmore. After that, it became a cycle of YouKilledMyFather.
* TheDreaded: Those who know of the Hunters know to fear them.
* TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether: The Canmores became this with whole generations training for ''nothing'' but Demona's death. According to the ''Bad Guys'' comic SpinOff, some still are.
* FantasticRacism: Towards gargoyles. Gillecomgain because Demona disfigured him, Duncan because they were a threat to him, Canmore because he blamed Demona for his father's death, and the modern Hunters because they've really known nothing else all their lives.
* TheHunter: Duh.
* IrislessEyeMaskOfMystery: The Hunters of the past avert this trope by having fully visible eyes. The Hunters of Gargoyles' present (as exemplified by Robyn as shown in the picture under her entry) play this trope straight possibly implying some sort of device is built into their masks.
* KnightTemplar: To the point that they ''threaten to kill their own allies'' for simply questioning their mission. Not actively denouncing it, ''questioning'' it.
* LegacyCharacter: From Gillecomgain (although Constantine invented the iconic Hunter mask) to Duncan, to Canmore, and so on.
* MalevolentMaskedMen: Although some of Canmore's descendants may be more misguided than evil.
* TheRealRemingtonSteele: The first time the Hunter was seen in modern day, it was [[spoiler: Macbeth in disguise.]]
* SecretIdentity: Hence the masks.
* VanHelsingHateCrime: Jason leads them to this when they learn of the existence of the Manhattan Clan, even going so far as to say "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything The only good gargoyle is a dead gargoyle]]."
* YouKilledMyFather: Most of the Hunters have had this as the reason for their grudge. Specifically, Gillecomgain's grudge against Findlaech, Malcolm Canmore's grudge against Macbeth, and Jason, Robyn, and Jon's grudge against Demona. Even Constantine is implied to hate gargoyles specifically because they killed his father.

!!!Gillecomgain

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JimCummings

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Gillecomgain_6002.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:Look closely creature, 'tis your handiwork, done when I was but a boy. ''Remember?'']]
The original Hunter. He began his vendetta against the gargoyle race in the 10th century when an unprovoked Demona slashed his face, leaving him permanently scarred.
----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassGrandpa: Even at fifty, he managed to hold his own against Demona and Macbeth.
* BastardUnderstudy: To King Constantine, as shown in the SLG comics.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: For Demona, her attack on the young Gillecomgain was an entirely unremarkable incident that she doesn't remember.
* ClarkKenting: Gillecomgain's face was slashed by Demona, leaving obvious scars. Those same kind of scars are on his mask, yet no one knew he was the Hunter until his death.
** Possibly justified by the fact that Constantine invented the symbol of the Hunter, so people may have associated the red-striped black mask (or face paint) with Constantine rather than Gillecomgain.
* DefiantToTheEnd: He kept trying to kill Demona, even when it would mean his own death.
* DirtyCoward: He uses Gruoch as a hostage when Macbeth takes the upper hand in their sword fight.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Which had it's share of [[KarmicDeath karma]] to it; he killed Macbeth's father, and tried to kill Macbeth and Demona, by thowing them from a building.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: To Duncan.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Started as a farmboy and became a ProfessionalKiller and famed gargoyle slayer.
* HarmfulToMinors: Getting slashed in the face and nearly killed as a child would have some serious mental side effects.
* HeroKiller: To Findlaech.
* GutturalGrowler: A given for any character played by Creator/JimCummings.
* InTheHood: When he kills Findlaech.
* KarmicDeath: He killed Macbeth's father by pushing him off of a castle wall; twelve years later, Demona and Macbeth kill him by pushing him off of that same castle wall.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: The reason he betrays Duncan.
* PsychoForHire: In addition to his gargoyle hunting, Gillecomgain also served Duncan as an assassin.
* ScarsAreForever: Gillecomgain's scars remained quite visible from the night Demona struck him until his death some 40 years later.
* TheSociopath: As an adult, Gillecomgain was a heartless killer who treated his own wife like she was nothing, had no loyalty to his king, and had no problem tormenting Macbeth by using the woman he loved as a human shield.
* StandardHeroReward: Inverted, as he and Duncan are both villains. Nevertheless, Duncan did reward him with the stewardship of Clan Moray and later Gruoch's hand in marriage as a reward for assassinating Findlaech.
* TeensAreMonsters: He is shown as already being a violent, revenge-obsessed lunatic as a young man in the SLG comics.
* UnknownRival: Demona wasn't ''unaware'' of Gillecomgain, since he became a fairly major thorn in her side, but even after he is unmasked she has [[ButForMeItWasTuesday no idea why he's so fixated on killing her]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Until he ran into Demona.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Not a particularly sympathetic example, but it was Gillecomgain's suffering at Demona's hands that drove him to villainy.
* WouldHitAGirl: Obviously Demona, and he has no problem using Gruoch as a HumanShield.

!!!King Duncan

--> '''Voiced by''': Neil Dickson

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Duncan_5204.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:There will always be a Hunter, my son. And there will always be the hunted.]]

Macbeth's cousin and the King of Scotland during most of his life. The character here is depicted more closely to his historical counterpart than the character in [[{{Theatre/Macbeth}} Shakespeare's play]] and is decidedly less sympathetic. He is the actual forefather of the Hunters that came to follow.
----
* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: When Gillecomgain informed Duncan of Findlaech's death, this was Duncan's response.
** [[spoiler: Also after his death.]]
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Of the Weird Sisters' magic.]]
* BeardOfEvil: As an older adult.
* DisneyVillainDeath: The writers consciously tried to avert this by having Macbeth defeat him by throwing a magic orb given to him by the Weird Sisters at him, but Duncan's electrocuted body then falls over a cliff anyway.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Ever paranoid that Macbeth would try to usurp his crown, Duncan could not believe that Macbeth was actually loyal to him. He is clearly surprised, for example, when Macbeth saves his life.
* EvilCounterpart: To Macbeth.
* TheEvilPrince: He had Findlaech killed so that Macbeth could never become king.
* {{Jerkass}}: He seemed to revel in making Macbeth's life miserable.
* UngratefulBastard: He lays siege to Macbeth's lands after hearing the Weird Sisters' prophecy that he would one day reign as kings despite the fact that Macbeth had just saved his life.
* XanatosGambit: By telling Macbeth that Gillecomgain murdered Finlaech, Duncan ensured one of two results: either Macbeth will kill Gillecomgain, eliminating the assaassin that Duncan can no longer control, or Gillcomgain will kill Macbeth, eliminating a potential threat to Duncan's claim to the throne.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He reveals Gillecomgain's identity as the Hunter to Macbeth after he becomes too hard to control, ensuring a fight to the death between the two.

[[caption-width-right:325:I am Canmore, son of Duncan. The true king of Scotland.]]

Duncan's son, better known as [[{{Theatre/Macbeth}} Malcolm]]. He took up the mantle of the Hunter to avenge his father's death on Macbeth's hands and take back what he saw as his rightful place on the throne.
----
* AffablyEvil: He does not harm Gruoch, Macbeth's wife, and treats her fairly courteously, claiming he has no quarrel with her.
* AntiVillain: Canmore seems to genuinely view Macbeth as TheUsurper and Demona as his monstrous [[TheDragon Dragon]] and himself as [[RightfulKingReturns the Rightful King Returning]].
* AvengingTheVillain: Canmore took up the Hunter's Mask to avenge Duncan. He's not happy when [[SpeakIllOfTheDead Macbeth says that his father was an evil man]].
* TheBadGuyWins: After Macbeth's departure, Canmore ultimately killed Luach and won the throne of Scotland.
* CombatPragmatist: When Canmore confronts Macbeth, they're about to duel. Demona then show up and Macbeth has a argument with her. Canmore take advantage of this and mortally strike Macbeth.
* HarmfulToMinors: Seeing your father explode and fall off of a cliff can really damage a child's mind.
* KarmaHoudini: As per history, he succeeds in overthrowing Macbeth and becomes king of Scotland shortly thereafter.
* LastNameBasis / OneSteveLimit: He is never referred to with his first name, Malcolm, to avoid confusion with the fictional Prince Malcolm who had earlier appeared in the series.

The oldest of the modern-day Canmore siblings and the leader of the modern-day Hunters. Under the guise of policeman Jason Conover he has a brief romantic relationship with Elisa before his identiry as a Hunter is revealed. Though he is initially the most fierce and outspoken of the modern-day Hunters, [[spoiler:he comes to see the gargoyles as they really are at the conclusion of the "Hunter's Moon multiparter".

* {{Badass}}: Enough of one to lead the modern-day Hunters.
** BadassBaritone: Courtesy of Creator/DiedrichBader.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Torwards his two younger siblings and teammates.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder
* DatingCatwoman: A male villain example with Elisa.
* GeneralRipper: He hates gargoyles with a passion at the beginning of the "Hunter's Moon" arc, owing in no small part to Demona's murder of his father.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:At the end of the "Hunter's Moon" arc.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Has no problem missiles being fired at a building full of innocent people. When Elisa enter it, he quickly rush to save her.

The middle child of the modern-day Canmore siblings and Jason's second-in-command. After Jason's appearant death during the hunt, she comes to realize the pointlessness of the vendetta and eventually makes a full HeelFaceTurn. In the SLG comic spin-off ''Bad Guys'' she becomes the leader of the Redemption Squad (see bellow).
----
* {{Badass}}: [[WordOfGod Greg Weisman]] has compared her to {{Franchise/Batman}}.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Dingo in the ''Bad Guys'' spin-off.
* BlondesAreEvil: At first.

[[caption-width-right:325:What have I done? What have I... what have ''they'' done! I will have my revenge, the hunt is not over!]]
The youngest of the modern-day Canmore siblings. Jon is initially by far the most reluctant and sympathetic to the gargoyles out of all the Hunters, but after being briefly convinced that Jason was murdered by Goliath he becomes convinced that the gargoyles must be destroyed, which only intensifies after he accidentally cripples the returned Jason and is unable to handle his guilt so he projects it on the gargoyles (the same way that Demona projects hers on humanity). He consequently adopts the identity of "John Castaway" and forms a new gargoyle-hunting organization called the Quarrymen.
----
* AffablyEvil: He's quite a gentleman.
* AntiVillain: He starts out as extremely reluctant in his villainy and quite willing to give up his life as a Hunter.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Before witnessing his older brother's apparent death at Goliath's hands, he really was the nicest of the three Canmore siblings.
* BadassMustache: Sports one after adapting the moniker of Castaway.
* BigBad: In ''The Goliath Chronicles''.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Less so than his siblings. At first, anyway.
* DecompositeCharacter: The writers of the ''Goliath Chronicles'' largely treated John Castaway as a separate character from Jon Canmore and only made extremely vague connections between the two. By the time of "Angels in the Night" their motives and personalities come across as drastically different.
* EvilCounterpart: To be precise, an evil human counterpart to the already evil Demona.
* FantasticRacism: Like all the Hunters, but his is less extreme than Jason's at first. When he thinks that Goliath killed Jason, however, Jon becomes fanatically hateful of all gargoyles.
* GeneralRipper: As leader of the Quarrymen.
* IgnoredEpiphany: Just like Demona's.
* LanternJawOfJustice: He has one despite being a villain.
* [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone My God What Have I...]] [[SubvertedTrope What Have THEY Done?]]: Making him ironically similar to Demona.
* SiblingTeam: With Jason and Robyn.
* ThatManIsDead: He says something to this effect about his life as Jon Canmore when confronted by his sister in the comic.
* TokenGoodTeammate: He was until his total role reversal with Jason.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: In the comics, he takes great care to uphold the public persona of the Quarrymen as a necessary, benevolent protection force. In ''The Goliath Chronicles'', he couldn't care less, but somehow manages to be a well-regarded industrialist anyway.

!!Constantine III

-> '''Voiced by''': Ian Buchanan

A historical king of Scotland, portrayed here as an usurper to the throne and a cunning manipulator. He was the catalyst to Princess Katharine, the Magus and Tom fleeing to Avalon with the Wyvern gargoyle eggs. The comic continuation shows him forming a twisted sort of father-son relationship with young Gillecomgain and designing the emblem of the Hunters.
----
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: He tries to force Princess Katharine into marriage, prompting her to flee to the island of Avalon.
* BaldOfEvil: After shaving his head in "Tyrants." This was done to mimic history, as the real Constantine was known as "Constantine the Bald."
* ManipulativeBastard: He dupes Finella, the woman who loves him, into luring King Kenneth to his demise under the pretense of wanting to tell him of their intentions to marry in private.
* PredecessorVillain: To the Hunters, in that he tutored Gillecomgain in gargoyle-shattering and appears to have designed to Hunter emblem to be used as war paint.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: "As we understand it, the king makes the rules."
* ShootTheMessenger: He orders a messenger from the Grim's army killed in the comic despite the rules of war.
* TheUsurper: He murdered King Kenneth and stole his crown.

!!The Illuminati

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/IlluminatiGargoyles_4935.JPG]]
The Illuminati are an ancient secret society said to secretly rule and manipulate the world. Initially, the Illuminati are treated as just one of Matt Bluestone's many crackpot conspiracy theories, but as the series progresses, they [[RealAfterAll turn out to be]] [[AllMythsAreTrue quite real]]. Some of the central antagonists of the series are members, including Xanatos, who is a ''lower''-echelon member. Ponder that.

!!!The Illuminati as a whole:

* AncientConspiracy: Going back to Arthurian times.
* BiggerBad: The Illuminati Society as a whole; a group of [[TheChessmaster chessmasters]] so skilled and influential that Xanatos is at the bottom of their hierarchy, but they're only directly involved in one episode and indirectly in a handful of others. The comic continuation indicates that they would have ended up in a more central role had the series continued.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Reinforced in the comic, where Martin Hacker gives three Illuminati operatives three contradictory statements on what the Illuminati wish to do with the gargoyles.
* YouAreNumberSix: Illuminati must identify themselves to each other by rank, which each tier having an amount of members of the same number (one One, two Twos, etc.); the lowest rank is Thirty-Six. Xanatos, Thailog, Matt Bluestone and John Castaway are all Thirty-Sixes. Peredur fab Ragnal, the Fisher King, is One. That gives them [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]] members all in all, a fact not gone unnoticed by the fans.

!!!Peredur fab Ragnal

[[quoteright:229:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Peredur_6845.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:229:Everything we planned... I must contact the upper echelons immediately!]]
The leader of the Illuminati, and presumably the same person as Sir Percival, a knight of King Arthur's round table. He resides in Castle Carbonek and appears to maintain immortality with the use of the Holy Grail.
----
* AmbiguouslyEvil: He apparently founded the Illuminati to "make things right", the implications of which, along with Peredur's own motives, remain unknown.
* [[BlondGuysAreEvil Blond Guys are Morally Ambiguous]]: The Illuminati's hands are definitely not clean, and Peredur's the head of the organisation.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Weisman's mental voice actor for Peredur is Jude Law.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Well, we don't know enough about him to properly classify him as "evil", but he's the head of a society that's morally dubious at best, and claims to love both Duval and Blanchefleur.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: He has only made a very brief appearance in the SLG comic, but if Matt's theories about the Illuminati hold any ground he has to be one of the most powerful people in the Gargoyles universe.
* PrettyBoy: Quite the looker, to be sure.
* Really700YearsOld: If he is Sir Percival, he's be nearly as old as Arthur himself.

!!!Duval

[[quoteright:181:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Duval2_2878.png]]
[[caption-width-right:169:Finally... Two!]]

One of the two Twos of the society. He resides in Castle Carbonek alongside Peredur and appears to have a bad relationship with Blanchefleur.
----
* [[BaldOfEvil Bald of Ambiguous Evil]]: Whether he's evil or not is up for grabs, but he's certainly bald.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: While writing the comic, Weisman imagined Duval's voice to be that of Eddie Marsan.
* {{Cyborg}}: He curiously has a lot of cybernetic implants. The reasons have yet to be explained.
* TheDragon: Apparently.
* SicklyGreenGlow: His cybernetics emit it.
* TheUnseen: Until "Rock of Ages."

!!!Blanchefleur

[[quoteright:215:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Blanchefleur_5051.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:215:Bugger off!]]

One of the three Threes in the Illuminati society, and Peredur's wife. She resides with him in Castle Carbonek and appears to have a bad relationship with Duval.
----
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: While writing the comic, Weisman imagined Fleur's voice actor to be Rhona Mitra.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Blond and apparently good-hearted.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the planned spin-off "Pendragon", Fleur would have joined up with Arthur and Griff in their search for Merlin.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Seemingly.

Introduced in the comic continuation, Shari is a mysterious girl with a high standing in the Illuminati (one of the nine Nines), who first appears in the Labyrinth, pretending to be one of the homeless who live there. When Thailog attacks, she volunteers to go warn Goliath, but never does. She currently aids Thailog as his assistant.
----
* AmbiguouslyBrown: By looking at her, though WordOfGod defines her as Arabic.
* CatchPhrase: "The story is told--though who can say if it be true..."
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Modeled after actress Zehra Fazal, who once portrayed Shari in a radio play at a fan convention.
* PerkyGoth: Quite upbeat and friendly.
* ShadowArchetype: She and Thailog are one of the Elisa/Goliath relationship, as well as of Owen and Xanatos.
* TheStoryteller: She tells Thailog a story every night just before he turns to stone.
* UnreliableNarrator: By her own admission; after all, "who can say if it be true"?

!!!Mace Malone

--> '''Voiced by''': Efrem Zimbalist Jr.

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MaceMalone_1508.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:325:You should see the dental plan.]]
A New York gangster who has been kept alive beyond his normal lifespan by the Illuminati's life-rejuvenating drugs. He was one of the Illuminati's main links to the underworld. He was ranked "somewhere in the high twenties."
----
* AffablyEvil: He's pretty friendly to Matt, and acts polite towards Goliath as well.
* EvilOldFolks: Evil, and quite old.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He wound up lost in the Hotel Cabal after trying to drive Goliath insane there.
* SanitySlippage: It doesn't take long for the Hotel to get to him.
* SignedUpForTheDental: He jokingly suggests as much in his conversation with Matt Bluestone.
* YouHaveFailedMe / YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The Illuminati leave him to starve to death stranded in the Hotel Cabal after he lets Goliath escape his grasp.

!!!Martin Hacker

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MichaelBell

An FBI agent and Matt Bluestone's former partner. During Matt's FBI days, Hacker made sure he would stick to wild goose chases in his quest to expose the Illuminati. Later on he becomes the one to induct Matt into the Illuminati and the FBI liaison for the Gargoyle Taskforce. One of the 32 Thirty-Twos.
----
* AffablyEvil: He's nice enough to Matt.
* BigBadFriend[=/=]FalseFriend: He was either of these to Matt, though it's unclear whether he truly considers Matt a friend. At the very least, it's implied that Hacker got Matt expelled from the FBI, so there's that.
* FBIAgent: And a mole there as well.
* TheMole: The Illuminati's man in the FBI.
* SmugSmiler: He keeps a smug smirk on his face while revealing his duplicity to Matt.

!!!Falstaff / John Oldcastle

[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Falstaff_5840.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:When you've got the world's biggest hen-house...who else could possibly guard it...? Except an old fat fox!]]

The Illuminati's treasurer and the self-styled "King of Thieves." He was Dingo's mentor and father figure while growing up, after the unfortunate passing of Dingo's mother. [[spoiler:Her death at Falstaff's hands, that is.]]
----
* AffablyEvil: Lovingly raising a child and teaching him how much fun a life of crime can be [[spoiler:minutes after secretly murdering that child's mother]]? You don't get much more AffablyEvil than that.
* BigEater: Just look at the size of him!
* BoisterousBruiser: Fun-loving, that's for sure.
* {{Expy}}: [[Theatre/HenryIV Weisman does so love his Shakespeare references...]] Falstaff is somewhat unique within the ''Gargoyles'' universe in that he and his band appear to have modeled themselves on Shakespeare's characters rather than being Shakespeare's in-universe inspirations for creating these characters like Oberon, Macbeth and the Weird Sisters.
* EvilMentor: To Dingo.
* TheFagin: He took Dingo under his wing as a child and raised him to be a criminal.
* FatBastard: Though he does an admirable job of acting like a BigFun.
* ALadyOnEachArm: He's introduced in the embrace of Mistresses Doll and Quickly, two members of his gang.

!!Thailog

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/KeithDavid
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ThailogCU_3755.png]]
[[caption-width-right:325:And waste my life playing guardian angel for a decrepit city infested with inferior humans...where's the profit in that?]]

Goliath's clone, designed to combine his physical attributes with Xanatos' intelligence and ruthlessness.
----
* {{Badass}}: Outsmarting ''Xanatos'' certainly qualifies him.
** BadassBaritone: Courtesy of Keith David.
** CulturedBadass: Much like Xanatos.
* BigBad: WordOfGod is that he would have likely evolved into this had the series continued. Shades of it can be seen in the comic continuation.
* CardCarryingVillain: He knows he's evil and he's quite proud of it.
* TheChessmaster: He takes after and surpasses Xanatos in this regard.
* CloneDegeneration: In the non-canon ''The Goliath Chronicles''.
* [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu Did You Just Scam Xanatos?]]: In "Double Jeopardy". He plays Demona like a harp in "Sanctuary" and "The Reckoning", as well.
* EvilCounterpart: To both Goliath and Xanatos.
* EvilLaugh: Indulges in this more than any other villain in the series. He even lampshades it as his "maniacal laugh" in the comics.
* EvilSoundsDeep: A given, since he shares Goliath's voice actor.
* EvilTwin: Goliath's
* GeniusBruiser: As smart as Xanatos and as strong as Goliath.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Xanatos wanted someone who was as powerful as Goliath but shared his own, profit-oriented worldview. Because that couldn't ''possibly'' backfire.
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Three Daddies]]: He refers to Goliath, Sevarius and Xanatos as his "three fathers." Guess which ones he takes after the most.
* KarmaHoudini: According to the comic continuation, he survived the fire in "The Reckoning" and regained control of Nightstone Unlimited.
** WordOfGod: "He survived. The Thailogs of the world ''always'' survive." Which makes sense, since the fire in "Double Jeopardy" didn't kill him either.
*** [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou Not The Fire That Kills You]].
* LargeHam: He probably gets it from Sevarius, and similarly plays up his performances when he deems the scene appropriate for it. Described by Weisman as "a bit of a performer," the things he says can't necessarily be taken at face value. On the other hand, like Demona, he can be chillingly cold when he wants to be.
* LaughablyEvil: Unlike Xanatos, Thailog has no redeeming qualities and yet still manages to be highly entertaining.
* ManipulativeBastard: With shades of Magnificence.
* OedipusComplex: He tries to kill Goliath, had a relationship with Demona, and even created a hybrid clone of Demona and Elisa when he tired of Demona.
* PhlebotinumRebel: He rebelled against Xanatos in no time at all.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: A side-effect from the accelerated growth process.
* SdrawkcabName: Almost. (If the letter thorn were still in use, Žailog would be Goliaž backwards.)
* ThatThingIsNotMyChild: Inverted. Goliath is disgusted at Xanatos' use of his DNA, but admits that Thailog isn't to blame and deserves freedom. In the same amount of time, however, Thailog decides that Goliath is too soft to admire.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: He spent his early life being subliminally indoctrinated by Xanatos. Of course, this was going to happen.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Demona, [[spoiler:until he betrays her]].
* WickedCultured: Took the first name "Alexander" when indirectly posing as a reclusive financial wizard after Alexander the Great, for whom he harbors admiration. In the comics continuation, he takes this a step further by lounging in a toga. According to WordOfGod, he also speaks many languages, French included.

!!The Quarrymen

A KKK-esque group of gargoyle hunters formed by John Castaway.
----
* CardCarryingVillain: In ''The Goliath Chronicles'', the Quarrymen couldn't care less about public safety and were also apparently aware that the gargoyles were trying to protect people, which is odd given that when Castaway recruits them in the first episode, they are just normal, concerned citizens who genuinely believe the gargoyles are a menace to society.
* DropTheHammer: Their weapon of choice is a big-ass, electrified sledgehammer that can shatter a [[TakenForGranite sleeping]] gargoyle in one hit, and badly injure a live one.
* FacelessGoons: Much like the Ku Klux Klan.
* FantasticRacism: Against gargoyles.
* {{Mooks}}: For Castaway.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Very much so in ''The Goliath Chronicles''.

!!Bruno

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett

Xanatos's chief of Security.
----
* DiminishingVillainThreat: In his debut, he and the team had the still-adjusting gargoyles on their toes. In "Metamorphosis," he and another guard still proved powerful foes. Eventually, he's being slapped around by his boss' crazy and magically changed fiance, Tony Dracon, and easily subdued by Goliath in "Monsters."
* MauveShirt: Best evidenced in "Monsters" [[spoiler:where he is the only security guard not to drown]].
* MookLieutenant: Leads the security team, responsible from mundane tasks like guarding things, to corporate espionage.
* PutOnABus: Of all of the Xanatos staff, he is the least seen, and after the first season episodes, he disappears until "Monsters," and after that he doesn't appear again.
** He reappears in the comics, still in his old job.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Others]]
!New York civilians

!!Margot Yale & Brendan Quarters

--> '''Voiced by''': Marina Sirtis and Pat Fraley

The very cynical Assistant District Attorney and her husband.
----
* FantasticRacism: Margot, towards gargoyles.
* HenpeckedHusband: Brendan
* RecurringExtra: The former {{Trope Namer}}s.
* RichBitch: Margot
** [[BlondesAreEvil Blondes Are]] AffablyEvil: Margot. Nice enough, but she's downright nasty when the truth about the gargoyles comes out.
* UngratefulBastard: Both of them to an extent, but especially Margot.
** This was initially out of fear. However, after the gargoyles' existence is revealed, Margot embodies this trope in a far nastier way.
** In the comics, Brendan does rush to get a doctor when Goliath is seriously injured.

!!Vinnie Grigori

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett

A strange man who, throughout the series, suffers various unnoticed misfortune because of the gargoyles, and eventually gets fed up.
----
* CatchPhrase: "Can you believe it?"
* ChekhovsGunman: Via retcon.
* TheChewToy: He was victim to a number of misfortunes over the course of the series, usually at the hands of the gargoyles.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: His idea of revenge on Goliath was to hit him with a banana cream pie.
* ICallItVera: Mr. Carter.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: During his brief stint as a Quarryman.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A very obvious and good imitation of Creator/JohnTravolta.
* PutOnABus: He leaves to take on a security job in Japan at the end of "The Journey."
* ShoutOut: An imitation of Travolta with a weapon named Mr. Carter? [[WelcomeBackKotter Hmm]]...
* [[ThoseTwoGuys That One Guy]]: He appeared a number of times, but always unnoticed by the gargoyles (and, until "Turf", the viewers as well).
* UnknownRival: Goliath had absolutely no idea who he was.
* WeaponOfChoice: A large and heavy bazooka called "Mr. Carter," eventually revealed to [[spoiler:only fire banana cream pies]].

!!Capt. Maria Chavez

--> '''Voiced by''': Rachel Ticotin

The captain in charge of Elisa's precinct.
----
* DaChief: Hard, but understanding.
* FairCop: A police captain who's easy on the eyes.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: While the rest of the cast is in ''Gargoyles,'' Captain Chavez is in ''Hill Street Blues''. Aside from breaking up [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture particle-beam smuggling rings,]] of course.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She's a pretty good person to work for.

!!Officer Morgan Morgan

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/KeithDavid

A police officer in the NYPD and a friend of Elisa's.
----
* DonutMessWithACop: He's seen eating donuts in "Temptation," though the sight of Brooklyn gliding in the air on a motorcycle convinces him to [[NoMoreForMe go off sugar]].
* NiceGuy: Consistently nice, and does not get upset with Elisa when he realizes in "Bash" that he's just her rebound guy.
* RecurringExtra: He starts out as one, but gradually gets slightly larger roles in the series, culminating in his date with Elisa in "Masque" and "Bash."
* RepetitiveName: Inspired by a former classmate of Greg Weisman's.
* RomanticRunnerUp: To Elisa.

!!Preston Vogel

--> '''Voiced by''': Peter Scolari

Halcyon Renard's right-hand man and confidant. Smart, capable, but not all that loyal--the near-perfect employee. No blood relation to Owen Burnett.
----
* ConscienceMakesYouGoBack: Despite betraying Renard, Vogel couldn't bring himself to leave the old man to die.
* ContagiousHeroism: Working with the moral Renard, Halcyon and Goliath's good character has rubbed off on him.
* {{Expy}}: At first glance, he's just a PaletteSwap of Owen Burnett and, indeed, when he first appeared, he was negatively received by audiences who thought the writers only knew how to write one kind of executive. Subverted in that, [[spoiler:in-universe, it's ''Owen'' who's an {{Expy}} of Vogel]].
* FourEyesZeroSoul: For a ''long'' while, but he got better.
* TheStarscream: Unlike Owen to Xanatos, Vogel has no problem with turning on Renard when offered enough money. However, when Fox's plan to sabotage Fortress-2 threatens to kill Renard and the staff in Cyberbiotics tower, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he's quick to turn back to Renard's side]].
* TheStoic: Although less so than Owen.
* YesMan: Shows some signs of this. "You're a genius, sir," indeed.

!Children of Oberon

Also called the Third Race, because they evolved after gargoyles and humans, emerging from the magical energies of the planet. The Children all have powerful magic and functional immortality, and are ruled by Lord Oberon and Queen Titania. All fairies, gods and great spirits from folklore and mythology are Children of Oberon. Their homeland is the magical island of Avalon. Note that they aren't Oberon's literal children; they're called that because he's their ''pater familias''. WordOfGod is that Oberon and Titania have one son and one daughter together, and Oberon also has some children by human women ([[spoiler:including Merlin]]).

According to WordOfGod, the Third Race used to be known as the Children of Mab (Mab is Oberon's crazy mother who is now SealedEvilInACan). [[WhatCouldHaveBeen If the series had continued]], the gargoyles would have had to help Oberon and Titania combat a freed Mab at some point.
----
* AllMythsAreTrue: See PhysicalGod bellow.
* ColdIron: Their main [[WeaksauceWeakness weakness]], their magic [[AntiMagic cannot directly effect]] any iron construct, but creative Oberon Children can use magic on the environment to get rid of it (AKA: shockwave iron robots with a mighty wind).
* TheFairFolk: Given their behavior, [[PhysicalGod powers]] and [[ColdIron vulnerability to iron]], there's no better way to describe the Children of Oberon.
* PhysicalGod: Most of them, some even being ''the'' actual beings from mythology.
* PureMagicBeing: [[WordofGod According to]] GregWeisman.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: More them a few Children of Oberon proved to be capable of changing their forms. WordofGod claims that the Children [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm doesn't have]] a "''true form''", [[ShapeshifterDefaultForm only a form they are comfortable with]].

!!Lord Oberon

--> '''Voiced by''': Terrence Mann
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oberon_9727.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Oberon does not compromise. '''OBERON ''COMMANDS!!!''''']]

The all-powerful and rather arrogant Lord of the Third Race, likewise taken from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night's Dream."
----
* {{Badass}}: The entire Manhattan clan, Xanatos and his father, Renard, Puck, and Fox all failed to stop him.
* ClippedWingAngel: In "Ill Met By Moonlight".
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu?: Played somewhat straight in "Ill Met by Moolight," averted in "The Gathering."
** BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: They do manage to do some pretty serious damage in "The Gathering" at one point by hitting him with an iron harpoon. It clearly hurts, but it also makes him ''really mad''...
* DynamicEntry: Oberon makes his entry by making lots of rumbling noises and raising a platform made of rock for him to stand on, complete with [[DramaticThunder lightning flashes]].
* TheFairFolk: Their Lord, in fact.
* GracefulLoser: Surprisingly so. While he will do anything to win, if you manage to actually defeat him, he will prove himself quite cordial and respectful.
* HairTriggerTemper: He's easily angered by shows of defiance.
* HappilyMarried: To Titania.
* ImmortalImmaturity: WordOfGod has stated that he was actually relatively humble compared to many of his people before banishing them from Avalon. Of course, by the time of the series, many of them learned greater humility. Believing that he had no lessons to learn, Oberon had remained largely the same.
* JediMindTrick: Oberon pulls this off and pulls David's pistol out of his hands in almost the exact same manner in which [[StarWars Vader did to Han]].
* JerkassGods: Not a nice guy, and he's extremely powerful to boot.
* TheJuggernaut: Xanatos, his family and the Manhattan Clan tried ''everything'' they had at hand to prevent him from kidnapping Alex, including swords, force fields, flying robots, highly-powered lasers, magic and even an iron harpoon in his chest. [[CurbStompBattle All for nothing]] (and the [[ColdIron iron harpoon]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero only make things worse]]!).
* LargeHam: "Oberon does not compromise. Oberon COMMANDS!"
* PhysicalGod: Possibly the single most powerful being yet seen in the ''Gargoyles'' universe.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Of a sort. According to WordOfGod, he is far better than his insane mother, [[FairForItsDay was considered highly benevolent by the standards of a thousand years ago]], did banish the Third Race to learn humility, is generally thought of as a good king and has shown a willingness to forgive and compromise as long as someone (Titania) is not riling him up.
* RememberedICouldFly: When he initially tried to attack Xanatos' tower, he became [[HairTriggerTemper enraged]] at the idea of them trying to keep him out (and succeeding with the help of a force field), causing him to [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever become gigantic]] and attempt to just smash through. It isn't helped by interference from the Gargoyles and Halcyon Renard. It seems as though he'll fail when Renard manages to surround him in an energy cage, until Oberon calms down enough to realize he's not using good judgement, and simply shrinks down to pass through the bars, conjures freezing rain to keep the Gargoyles and Renard's robots and airship off his back, and simply phases through the ground around the tower (bypassing the force field completely).
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Oberon decreed that his magic would not affect the Gargoyles. When he faced them down, however, he was more than happy to use magic against them, just indirectly. "[[InvokedTrope My decrees are mine to interpret!]]"
* VillainousCheekbones: Very sharp.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Skin]]: Done deliberately to avoid the UnfortunateImplications of associating Oberon with a specific real-life ethnicity.

!!Queen Titania

--> '''Voiced by''': Kate Mulgrew

The wife of Oberon that he divorced. They reconciled their relationship 1000 years later.
----
* BareYourMidriff: In her true form.
* TheChessmaster: The events of "The Gathering" occurred according to her designs.
* EvilRedhead: Well, "evil" is debatable, but Antagonistic Redhead, at least.
* TheFairFolk: Their Queen.
* FairySexy: One of the fair folk, and quite a knockout.
* FieryRedhead: As Titania. Not so much as [[spoiler:Anastasia]]
%%* [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Green Skinned Fairy Babe]]
* HappilyMarried: To Oberon, and to Halcyon, before she tired of him.
%%* HartmanHips
%%* TheHighQueen
%%* HotWitch
* LadyInRed: In her true form.
* ManipulativeBitch: At times.
** It's heavily hinted that, if not outright stated, that between the events of ""Ill Met By Moonlight" and "The Gathering," Titania was telling all involved what they needed to hear in order to make the end justify the means. In the former, her influence arranges for the court of Princess Katharine to remain on Avalon, and in the latter, over the course of the prolonged battle with Oberon that she basically instigated, [[spoiler:Fox's latent magical powers finally surface, which means that Alex can remain with her and David, while Puck (who doesn't want to go to the Gathering, anyway) can be left to stay, caring for and training Alex in magic from the get-go.]]
* MsFanservice: WordOfGod classifies her as this, and proud enough to flaunt it off.
%%* ShesGotLegs
* TheWomanBehindTheMan: She's smarter than Oberon.
* WomenAreWiser: Though, bizarrely, Oberon claims she used to be a RoyalBrat, which is why he divorced her. WordOfGod says that she underwent a lot of CharacterDevelopment in their 1,001-year separation, while Oberon stayed more or less the same.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Teal Skin]]: As with Oberon, this was done to avoid the otherwise inevitable UnfortunateImplications of associating a ruler of the Third Race with a specific real-life ethnicity.

!!Puck

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/BrentSpiner

One of the Children of Oberon described in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night's Dream," a prankster who relishes his independence.
----
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler:He ''loved'' being Owen so much he risked defying Oberon just so he could hang out with Xanatos and Fox for a few more centuries, or at least long enough for his employers to live out their lives. Later, it gets [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] when Oberon forces him to be Owen ''forever''.]]
** [[spoiler:His first reaction to this is a BigNo, almost immediately followed by Owen's trademark [[TheStoic stoic acceptance]].]]
* BoredWithInsanity: "The Puck has played many roles...but never that of StraightMan."
* CloudCuckoolander: As befits a trickster.
* DeadpanSnarker: In "The Mirror", he snarks at Demona at every opportunity.
%%* TheFairFolk
* ForTheLulz
-->'''Goliath:''' Puck! I should've known. But why this subterfuge?
-->'''Puck:''' Hey, I ''live'' for subterfuge!
%%* GreatGazoo
* LiteralGenie: For fun.
** JackassGenie: If you piss him off (ex. Demona).
** BenevolentGenie: If you manage to impress him (ex. Xanatos).
* MindScrew: His BadFuture plot during the Avalon arc. Also counts as a BatmanGambit to get the Phoenix Gate. Goliath figures him out at the crucial moment. Leading to a BigNo followed by "I was sooo close!"
* TricksterArchetype: One of the more famous Shakespearean tricksters.

!!The Weird Sisters

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/KathSoucie
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/WeirdSisters_5324.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:325:All things are true.]]

Three powerful Children of Oberon who interfere in the series from time to time, particularly where Demona and Macbeth are concerned, loosely adapted from the Three Witches of Macbeth as well as various Three Goddess myths. Their goals and motives are their own.
----
* AbsoluteCleavage: In their default outfits, as well as their fashion model guise.
%%* CantArgueWithElves
* TheChessmaster: They've been more or less running Demona and Macbeth's lives for over 900 years, and WordOfGod is that they were playing the Archmage for a fool as well.
* [[CreepyTwins Creepy Triplets]]: Mysterious at best, downright unsettling at worst.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* [[DragonWithAnAgenda Dragons With An Agenda]]: To the Archmage during "Avalon."
%%* TheFairFolk
* EvilIsPetty: Or BlueAndOrangeMorality is petty, possibly. It was their job to keep everybody out of Avalon until Oberon returned, and the Magus caused them to fail. They even agree to the Archmage's thousand-year plan for revenge, just to settle their score with the Magus. They go out of their way to go after ''him'' when their plan is working.
* GambitRoulette: Their plan to use Demona, Macbeth and the Archmage to regain control of Avalon would be one, [[JustifiedTrope except that]] the Sisters seem to have some ability to see the future and therefore could predict where their pawns would end up.
* HairColors: The only way to tell them apart. Phoebe has golden hair (and is [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold the least malevolent one]]), symbolizing Grace; Luna has MysticalWhiteHair and is the most detached, symbolizing Fate; and Seline is a EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette who symbolizes Vengeance.
* TheHecateSisters: As a reference to the Maiden/Mother/Crone mythology, they appear in disguises of various ages. Demona sees them as three elderly female gargoyles, Macbeth sees them as three elderly human women, Goliath sees them as three little human girls, etc.
** WordOfGod says that, depending on which sister is in ascendance at the moment, they are the three Graces, the three Fates or the three Furies, but also that they always have aspects of all three identities.
* HijackedByGanon: The Archmage takes over their plan to re-gain Avalon and uses it for his own purpoes. Also subverted in that, by doing so, he was still helping them achieve their goals anyway.
* HiveMind: They're less three separate beings and more one being with three distinct aspects.
* [[HotGirlsAreBitches Hot Girls Are]] {{Manipulative Bitch}}es: They're attractive and definitely manipulative.
%%* {{Hot Witch}}es
* MysticalWhiteHair: All three of them are highly mystical; Luna is probably the most mystical of the three, and has white hair.
%%* [[PhysicalGod Physical Goddesses]]
* {{Right Hand Hottie}}s: To the Archmage.
%%* [[ShesGotLegs They've Got Legs]]
* ShesGotLegs
* TalkingToHerself: Kath Soucie voices all three of them.
* ThemeNaming: All three of their names are those of moon goddesses.
* WildCard: Any time the Sisters appear, all bets are off as to whether they'll be good guys, bad guys or observers.
* [[WomanInWhite Women In White]]: In their true form.

!!Raven

--> '''Voiced by''': Laurence Bain

A trickster Child of Oberon from American Indian mythology who frequently assumes the form of a raven. He has his eyes set on conquering Queen Florence Island.
----
%%* DeadpanSnarker
%%* TheFairFolk
%%* FauxAffablyEvil
* KarmaHoudini: He gets off scot-free and is later seen attending the Gathering.
* ManipulativeBastard: He plays Goliath like a harp throughout most of the episode in which he appears, making him believe Grandmother is a villain and he himself a persecuted gargoyle.
%%* RavensAndCrows
%%* TheTrickster

!!Grandmother

--> '''Voiced by''': Amentha Dymally

A benevolent Child of Oberon who protects Queen Florence Island and advises Chief Natsilane.
----
%%* CoolOldLady
* TheMentor: To Natsilane
%%* TheObiWan

!!Anubis

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TonyJay

The Egyptian god of death and the afterlife.
----
* DarkIsNotEvil: For a god of death, Anubis is not at all malevolent.
* DeathTakesAHoliday: While the Emir and the Pack imprison him, everyone on Earth is prevented from dying (though we never actually see the consequences of this).
* EverybodyHatesHades: Refreshingly averted. Though he both looks and sounds rather sinister, Anubis is not portrayed as a villain and the episode featuring him in fact has the [[AnAesop moral]] that death is a natural part of life that must be accepted.
** DontFearTheReaper: Anubis is neither evil nor antagonistic.
* FusionDance: Forced to merge with two different mortals in his debut episode. He has next-to-no influence over the fused form and whomever he's bound to is the one who has control.
* TheGrimReaper: Although a benevolent example.
* HijackingCthulhu: With the scroll of Thut, Jackal, and later the Emir, take over Anubis' powers.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Regards death as "the ultimate fairness" and is adamant about not showing favoritism.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Whenever fused with someone.

!!The Banshee / Cromm-Cruach

--> '''Voiced by''': Sheena Easton

A Child of Oberon residing in Ireland who prides herself on her destructive siren voice.
----
* CompositeCharacter: Cromm-Cruach in Irish legends is not connected to Banshees in any way.
** WordOfGod from Creator/GregWeisman suggests that legends of the Morrigan refer to the Banshee, though this is only after a fan told him about the Morrigan and her love/hate relationship with Cu Chullain on Ask Greg, as he wasn't familiar with her.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Oberon gags her mouth in "The Gathering, Part I" for disobeying his summons to Avalon, preventing her from using her siren voice.
%%* CuteGhostGirl
* HairTriggerTemper: Odin even makes fun of her for it.
* MakeMeWannaShout: She is the banshee, after all.
%%* ManipulativeBitch
* OneWingedAngel / ScaledUp: Her form as Cromm-Cruach, a large cross between a dragon and a larva with squeletical face.
* OurBansheesAreLouder: Duh.
* PoisonousFriend: She deliberately plays this part to Rory Dugan in order to prevent him from discovering his true nature as Cu Chullain's reincarnation.

!!Anansi

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/LeVarBurton

A trickster Child of Oberon residing in Nigeria in the form of a spider.
----
* AintTooProudToBeg: When the battle starts to turn against him, he rather pathetically offers to "spin wishes" for the heroes and grant them treasures beyond counting.
* BigEater: Like African Elephant big.
* DealWithTheDevil: His stock in trade. He made both Fara Maku and Tea Gora were-panthers in exchange for them hunting for him, but as Elisa's mother Diane points out, his gifts always come at a price.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Which, given his size, is to be expected.
* FatBastard: So fat, in fact, that he can't fight the heroes once his webs have been cut. And his goal is to become even fatter.
* GiantSpider: ''Huge'' spider.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Anansi's gluttony left him so fat that he couldn't keep fighting after his web was cut.
* KarmaHoudini: He escapes and is later seen attending the Gathering.
* ManipulativeBastard: He manipulated the original were-panther, and the subsequent were-panthers, into hunting his food for him.
* TheTrickster: ''The'' trickster god of Africa.
* WeaksauceWeakness: He was defeated when his web was cut down because he was too fat to move properly on the ground.

%%* DefrostingIceKing
* HandicappedBadass: He ''is'' missing his eye until the end of his first episode.
%%* AnIcePerson
* PoorCommunicationKills: If he had just explained his intentions and who he was to Goliath, Goliath would most likely have given the Eye to him. Odin even admits at the end of his starring episode that he is out of practice dealing with mortals.

!!Coyote

--> '''Voiced by''': Gregg Rainwater

A trickster figure of American Indian lore.
----
* BadassInDistress: He is captured by Xanatos and nearly forced into granting him immortality.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Doppelganger}}: The form he assumes for most of "Cloud Fathers" is an imitation of young Peter Maza.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted and PlayedForLaughs. The characters constantly have to take care not to confuse Coyote the Trickster with Coyote the robot.
* ReversePsychology: He tries to use it in order to push Elisa's father Peter Maza into accepting his heritage.

!Others

!!The Redemption Squad

A team made out of people who previously fought the Manhattan Clan, organized by persons unknown and led by Robyn Canmore. The stars of the ComicBook SpinOff ''Bad Guys''. The members are the Hunter (Robyn), ex-Pack member Dingo, artificial intelligence Matrix, Japanese gargoyle Yama and the mutate Fang.
----
* AntiHero: The whole squad.
* AntiVillain: The whole squad, with the exception of Fang.
* TheAtoner: Again, all except Fang.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Robyn and Dingo. Fang lampshades it. [[spoiler:WordOfGod is that they'll eventually marry, and their descendants will play some part in the timeline of ''Gargoyles 2198'']].
* BoxedCrook: Again, the whole squad.
* DarkActionGirl: Robyn
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: [[spoiler:Eventually Dingo for Robyn.]]
* GoodFeelsGood: Dingo. He was originally a thief and mercenary before joining the Pack and pretending to be a hero. When the Pack went back to being mercenaries and bad guys, he realized he'd actually ''liked'' being a hero. After splitting off from the others, he undergoes his HeelFaceTurn.
* HeelFaceTurn: All of them except for Fang.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Fang.
* MultinationalTeam: Robyn is Scottish, Dingo is Australian, as is Matrix, in a way, Yama is Japanese and Fang is American.
* {{Nanomachines}}: Matrix
* PowerArmor: Matrix
* RedemptionDemotion: Matrix, who was powerful enough to almost destroy the world in its first appearance, gets this.
* StoryBreakerPower: Matrix once had the power to [[GreyGoo cover and reshape the entire world]]. Now he's in a humanoid shape and his range is limited to his surrounding. Justified, since he no longer has access to the energy of nuclear power plant to boost his capabilities.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Especially between Yama and Fang.
