[[folder: Why did Elisa's mother call the gargoyles "monsters" when she first met them in Nigeria?]]
When the gargoyles revealed themselves to Elisa's mother in order to save her life, she said "Elisa you know these monsters?!?!" At this point in the story, she had already learned what happened to her son and the other mutates. It seems odd that she would describe beings so similar to her son as "monsters". Every other person who knows about Sevarius's work attributes life forms they don't recognize to his work. Elisa initially thought the werefox was Sevarius's work and Halcyon Renard initially assumed the same about Goliath. So why is Diane the only person who doesn't use this logic?

* It could also be that Demona had done some work on setting up some 'dummy corporations' or other businesses before she actually became human; once long-range communication became more common, she's intelligent enough to make arrangements without anyone realising that they ''never'' saw or met 'Dominique Destine' in person, and once she gained her new form it would just be a case of timing her visits so that people don't wonder too much about why she never visited them in person before.

injury? When Xanatos has that rough helicopter landing with a petrified Fox he rather nonchalantly remarks "at least she isn't chipped," but considering that at least a few drivers in the city probably turned to stone with their foot on the accelerator, and trains would keep right on going until they hit an obstacle or derailed, there would be several people that woke-up with pieces missing (at an absolute minimum, one extremely unfortunate shopper would have awakened without arms thanks to Demona's twisted sense of humor).

[[WMG: How does the Manhattan Clan get enough food?]]
Eliza has her own expenses. Cop's salary or not, NYC is not cheap. The other gargoyles aren't in a position to get jobs (not of the sort available in the 90s, anyway). So where exactly do they get the money to feed an entire family of beings who need to eat more than a typical human?
