A young Angela and Boudicca with Princess Katharine and Tom
Hatched from one of the Wyvern Clan’s eggs while they were being safeguarded by Princess Katharine, the Magus, and Tom the Guardian on Avalon, she was originally a member of the Avalon Clan of gargoyles. However, when the Archmage attacked Avalon, and Goliath, Elisa and Bronx came to battle him, she left the Avalon Clan with them, and joined their worldwide quest that Avalon had sent them on.
On the journey, Angela discovered that she was Goliath’s biological daughter. Despite pressure from Angela and others, he was unwilling to treat her as such for a long while (claiming that to a gargoyle the whole clan is its parents), until Diane Maza, Elisa’s mother convinced him. Beyond this, Angela also learned that her mother was Demona (now an enemy of the Manhattan Clan) and attempted to bond with her. Elisa early on commented that there was something about Angela that reminded her of Demona; indeed, Angela resembles Demona in build, but has her father’s (Goliath’s) coloring.
Angela as she appears in the Comics
Upon returning to Manhattan, she was readily accepted by the other clan members. The three males close to her own age – Brooklyn, Lexington and Broadway – all attempted to woo her as a potential mate; their aggressive courtship tactics frustrated her so much that she was forced to angrily put them in their place in the midst of a battle. Later on, she more gently asked them to slow down so that any romantic feelings she might feel one day could develop naturally. Furthermore, to encourage them to be patient, she tells the boys the delightful fact that she has 15 rookery sisters back at Avalon. She eventually chose Broadway as her mate.
When Elisa broke up with Goliath and brought Morgan as a date to a party thrown by Xanatos, Angela treated Elisa very coldly, revealing more of her temperament. She later flirted with Brooklyn in order to have him dress in his costume for the party. She, along with the rest of her clan battled Thailog, but she had a particularly strong reaction to him, calling him a bastard before attacking him. Thailog slashed at her, secretly obtaining her genetic material for unknown purposes, before he left with Brentwood against her wishes.
Writer Greg Weisman planned for Angela and Broadway to eventually have three biological children named Artus, Gwenyvere, and Lancelot. Samson, the main character of the Gargoyles 2198 spin off, would have either been a grandson of Artus or Gwenyvere or would have been the son of Lancelot.
Despite her sheltered, peaceful upbringing on Avalon, Angela is an extremely perceptive and cunning warrior with a temper reminiscent of both of her parents. Her natural curiosity and thirst for adventure is what inspired her to leave the safety of Avalon – as she told her rookery brother Gabriel, she wanted to “see the world, find [her] place in it”. Having been raised by loving humans, she has difficulty understanding the prejudices that the majority of the human race displays towards her kind. She is also an extremely moral individual unaccustomed to deception, as evidenced by her shocked reaction to Goliath’s lie about his hallucinations in “Shadows of the Past”.
She is very trusting and kind, and a good judge of character. Angela is a fierce and bold gargoyle warrior all the same, however, and can even display a fierce temper on occasion. She particularly showed it when the Trio (or at least Lexington and Brooklyn) constantly called her “Angie” while courting her (she hates the nickname), and can hold her own well in a fight. (This initially seems hard to notice because of her sheltered upbringing on Avalon, but Angela has learned more about how to fight during the course of her adventures).
Demona is something of a concern for Angela. While well aware of her mother’s true nature, she also cannot help but make an attempt to reach out to Demona, precisely because of their family bonds (having been raised by humans, Angela does see some importance in biological relationships between gargoyles, though she still supports the Gargoyle Way). She finds Demona’s hatred of humanity and bitter quest for revenge distressing, as she does Demona’s vendetta with Goliath. But she has the hope that Demona will someday be healed of her evil and rejoin the clan, although she has no illusions that Goliath and Demona will become mates again.

But she has the hope that Demona will someday be healed of her evil and rejoin the clan, although she has no illusions that Goliath and Demona will become mates again. However, like her mother, Angela is an iconoclast and left Avalon because she wanted more than normal clan life had to offer.
Goliath and Elisa
She loves and respects Goliath as her father very much, and loves and respects Elisa tremendously; she approves of Goliath and Elisa’s relationship.
She chose Broadway as her mate, since he alone of the three young gargoyles could truly relate to her on a personal and emotional level, not simply as an attractive female gargoyle. She helped him with his reading lessons, and the enjoy reading the works of Shakespeare together.
Angela is tall and slender with long dark hair worn in a ponytail; she has inherited her father’s lavender complexion, although her features are closer to Demona’s. When Angela left Avalon, she wore a one-piece conservative outfit, but shortly after moving to the Eyrie Building, she changed her outfit to a two piece, one that was more reminiscent of Demona’s typical style. This change on her part was made to express her growing up and pursuing her more adult relationship with Broadway.
Though not out right stated in the series, Angela’s age can be calculated. She was due to hatch four years after the Wyvern Massacre. It took Princess Katharine, Tom, and the Magus a year to arrive at Avalon with the eggs. This means that Angela and the other Avalon Clan eggs, hatched three years after their arrival (in Avalon time) based on the math given by Tom in part one of Avalon, forty years passed on Avalon during the Manhattan Clan’s thousand-year sleep. This makes Angela approximately thirty-seven at the time of her introduction. The same age as the Trio.
- Angela’s name not only serves as a contrast to her mother Demona’s, but also as a sign of how princess Katharine’s own feelings towards gargoyles changed for the better after 994. She named most of the Avalon Clan after angels, in fact; not just Angela and Gabriel, but also giving some other gargoyles in the clan such names as Michael, Raphael, Azrael and perhaps even Archangel.
- Greg Weisman has expressed that Angela probably does not know too much about the Gargoyle Way, and that she was raised with medieval Christian values, without necessarily being baptized a Christian.

Like the other founding gargoyles of the Manhattan Clan, he survived the 994 slaughter and was cursed to sleep as a statue for a thousand years. In the modern world, Broadway developed fast likings for Western and detective movies and cooking. He also made fast friends with the NYPD detective, Elisa Maza, possibly to a greater extent than any of the other gargoyles except Goliath.
While visiting Elisa, Broadway finds her gun and imitates gunslingers that he had seen in a movie. In the process, he accidentally shoots and seriously wounds Elisa. Though she survives, and bears him no ill will for his actions, they both learn a valuable lesson about gun safety. Broadway takes it upon himself to destroy any firearm he finds, and Elisa learns to keep her weapon properly secured. In fact, the event seemed to only bring the two closer together, and later Broadway was often seen aiding Elisa in her police cases serving as her unofficial “partner” using skills he picked up from watching detective movies.
He and Hudson came to realize the value of the written word after awaking in Manhattan. After this, he discovers a taste for poetry and the dramatic arts, particularly Shakespeare, as he is seen reading from Romeo and Juliet in the library of the Eyrie Building.
Following Goliath’s return at the end of the Avalon World Tour, Broadway began courting Angela, Goliath’s newly discovered daughter, as did Brooklyn and Lexington. After she expressed her frustration with them, Angela ultimately chose Broadway, as he saw her as the person she was, rather than simply an object to be won. Likely their relationship began to develop when they were briefly possessed by two of the souls that made up the gargoyle Coldstone, the lovers previously trapped within.
In the “Future Tense” illusion, Broadway was blind, having lost his eyes in the resistance against Xanatos. His skin had also turned from blue to a light green and was covered in numerous scars. To compensate for his lack of eyes, he war a high tech collar, designed by Lexington, around his neck, which allowed him to detect his environment, presumably through sonar. He eventually died after an attack by the Thailog Shock Troops.
The large, round, and bluish green-skinned gargoyle called Broadway is a positive and occasionally innocent clan member with a fondness for food (even using food as a weapon on some occasions), as well as Westerns and detective movies. He is named after the famous Manhattan street known for its prominent American theater industry. He has the largest wings of all the group and has small bat wing-like structures as his ears. He is steadfast, honorable, gregarious and quite rational despite his appearance, and was the main focus of several of the show’s more thought-provoking episodes.
In the modern world, Broadway developed fast likings for Western and detective movies and cooking. He also made fast friends with the NYPD detective, Elisa Maza, possibly to a greater extent than any of the other gargoyles except Goliath.
Broadway was the lead protagonist of the episode “Deadly Force”, a famously controversial episode that was banned from airing on television for many years. In it, Broadway finds Elisa’s gun and imitates gunslingers that he had seen in a Western movie. In the process, he accidentally shoots and seriously wounds Elisa. Though she survives, and bears him no ill will for his actions, they both learn a valuable lesson about gun safety. Broadway takes it upon himself to destroy any firearm he finds, and Elisa learns to keep her weapon properly secured. In fact, the episode seemed to only bring the two closer together, and later Broadway was often seen aiding Elisa in her police cases serving as her unofficial “partner” using skills he picked up watching detective movies. Broadway seems to have been the gargoyle of choice for writers who intended to ground their stories in the real world, because of his down-to-Earth nature. Several stories featuring human criminals had only Broadway (and leader Goliath) in pivotal roles.
Broadway also appeared in a main role during the pro-literacy episode “Lighthouse in a Sea of Time”, in which both he and Hudson (both previously illiterate) come to realize the value of the written word. After this in subsequent episodes, the gargoyles diligently struggle to master reading. Along the way, Broadway discovers a taste for poetry and the dramatic arts, particularly Shakespeare, as he is seen reading from Romeo and Juliet in the final canon broadcast episode of the series.
Following Goliath’s return at the end of the Avalon World Tour, Broadway began courting Angela, Goliath’s newly discovered daughter, as did Brooklyn and Lexington. After she expressed disappointment in them, Angela ultimately chose Broadway, as he saw her as the person she was, rather than simply an object to be won. Likely this was helped by the episode “Possession”, in which they were briefly possessed by two of the personalities that made up the gargoyle Coldstone, two lovers that are called Othello and Desdemona.
Physically, Broadway is big and somewhat overweight, with aquamarine skin, a bald head, and fin-like ears. Fitting his bulky size, Broadway has the widest wingspan among his Rookery brothers. He also has an underbite.
Though not stated out right in the series, Broadway hatched in 958, and was approximately thirty-six at the time of the Wyvern Massacre, which is a Gargoyles biological equivalent to eighteen. After the curse is broken in 1994, Broadway, like the rest of his clan gained a further thousand years (for the purpose of simplicity these will not be counted as part of his age). The most resent issues of the comic take place three years later in 1997, making Broadway thirty-nine, or the gargoyles biological equivalent to about nineteen.
- According to Greg Weisman, Broadway is Hudson’s biological son, though neither of them are aware of this, nor likely would they consider that fact significant (in Gargoyle culture, all clan members are viewed as parents).
- Also according to Greg Weisman, Broadway had an elder sister, referred to as Hyppolyta. Both she and their mother died prior to the Wyvern Massacre.
- Neither Broadway, nor Hudson, could read prior to “A Lighthouse in the Sea of Time”.
- They began making efforts to do so at the end of the same episode, and are seen to be capable of it in later episodes.
- In the future, he and Angela would have two sons and a daughter (named Artus, Gwenyvere and Lancelot), and a grandson (or great grandson) Samson, the hero of the proposed spin-off Gargoyles 2198.
- Broadway grew out of a female gargoyle character from the comedy development. She was first called “Isa Dora,” then “Coco.” She shared Broadway’s general body type and gentle personality. She loved to sing and dance, but had little talent for either. When she was being considered as part of the action-drama cast, she was renamed “Belushi.” With a change of gender and a couple of other modifications, this gargoyle evolved into Broadway. The “Coco” name was later reused as a nickname for the London Clan gargoyle Constance, who shares some traits with the original Coco.
- Two stone gargoyles with a striking resemblance to Broadway appear in the pilot episode of The Spectacular Spider-Man: one which Spider-Man web-slings past along with a stone Goliath and Hudson, and later another which is destroyed while Spider-Man battles the Vulture and the Enforcers.

Gargoyles, chimeras and other grotesque evil spirits: gorbutovich — LiveJournal
It is difficult to meet them in Russia. But it is worth going to Europe and now – they look at us from the walls of temples, sometimes unhappy, sometimes aggressive, sometimes funny, sometimes scary. Most often, gargoyles and grotesque creatures “live” on Gothic architecture, sometimes on Romanesque. However, in later buildings, including modern ones, they are quite common.
Eltz Castle, Germany.
What kind of creatures are these?
The word gargoyle – French La Gargouille comes from words that imitate a gurgling sound, the murmur of water. Based on Latin derivatives gurgulio – windpipe; gula – pharynx, throat; gurges – whirlpool, abyss, whirlpool, poet. water (translation according to Latin-Russian Dictionary, compiled by A.M. Malinin, M., 1952, p. 292 ).
(via 1, 2)
The legend of the Gargoyle dates back to the 7th century AD, in what is now France. There are different retellings of the myth, such a picture emerges roughly. In the vicinity of the city of Rouen, in a lair in the swamps on the banks of the Seine, a huge dragon (serpent) lived. The dragon attacked the ships sailing along the Seine and terrorized the locals. From the dragon’s mouth, fire, or powerful water streams, fell on everything and everyone around. The people of Rouen made sacrifices to the ferocious beast every year. The dragon’s name was La Gargouille (feminine). The gargoyle performed its many atrocities until a knight in shining armor, Saint Romanus, subdued her. Saint Romanus was Bishop of Rouen, he zealously fought against paganism, he lived until about 640, during the time of the King of the Franks and Burgundians Dagobert I / Dagobert I (b. c. 608 – d. 639). The miracle of the Roman about the gargoyle (serpent) is one of the exploits of the saint.
When Bishop Roman decided to catch the Gargoyle, only one person agreed to help him, and even that criminal, sentenced to death, who had nothing to lose but his chains. Saint Roman used the criminal as bait, sending him to the monster’s lair. The gargoyle, smelling the human spirit, came out of its cave to profit from the guest. However, Saint Roman, with the help of prayers and the holy cross, deprived the dragon of will. The gargoyle obediently lay down at the saint’s feet. The bishop brought the defeated beast to the city, where the grateful inhabitants sent evil spirits to a huge fire. The body and tail of the gargoyle were burned, but the fire could not destroy the throat. The throat proved to be heat-resistant due to the regular eruption of fire during previous outrages. Then the wise Ruans decided to keep the head of the gargoyle as a warning to other dragons. Or maybe it was the order of the bishop – now you can’t figure it out. The remnants of gargoyles – a head with a throat – were attached to the Rouen Cathedral in order to clearly show evil spirits what happens to those who harm people.
Since the 11th century, images of terrible gargoyles have been carved from stone on the outer walls of Romanesque and Gothic buildings. Whether sculptures of gargoyles were made before is not known, since before that a tree was used for such purposes, which had no chance of surviving until the time of scientific description.
People invented for the gargoyle a job in its ancient specialty – spewing water. Gutters began to be decorated with images of gargoyles. Gargoyles began to benefit people – through their throats they divert streams of rainwater from the walls of temples. The water thrown out of the mouth of the gargoyle fell at a distance from the walls, so the walls did not collapse, and the foundations were not washed away. At 18-19For centuries, people have been merciful. Most, but not all, gargoyles have been spared the drudgery of draining water. This useful function was taken over by drainpipes. Old women gargoyles have become an element of building decor.
However, the gargoyles changed. Terrifying animals, birds, people, mythological and fantastic creatures, as well as their hybrids in various combinations, were added to dragons and snakes. In general, numerous grotesque creatures began to multiply.
(via 1, 2, 3)
(via: Kevin Trotman)
(image: Paul Mal one, Ron Hilton)
Gradually on buildings began to appear sculptural images devoid of drainage function. They were cut out simply “for beauty”, or rather “for horror”. Such decorative creatures are called grotesques, as well as chimeras. The name chimera comes from an ancient Greek mythical creature. In ancient Greece, a chimera was a monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a dragon’s tail, spitting fire. According to Hesiod, the chimera had three heads: a lion, a goat and a dragon. Medieval chimeras have no external resemblance to the Greek prototype. However, the chimerical principle of connecting parts of different creatures into one whole makes ancient and medieval tesks related.
So, the architectural term “ gargoyle ” / “gargoyle” refers to carvings created with a useful function, to drain rainwater from the walls of buildings, drains on roofs, branches from gutters, decorated in the form of bizarre grotesque figures, demonic creatures , sometimes with horns, wings, sometimes half-human, half-animal.
A grotesque sculptures ( grotesques ), also called chimeras , are decorative architectural elements without a useful purpose. Unless, of course, we do not take into account the important function of scaring off enemies.
At the same time, gargoyles are also grotesques, only with their own specific purpose. Gargoyles are often mistakenly referred to as all grotesque gothic creatures. But rightly so – a gargoyle, if it was used as a drain and a chimera or a grotesque, if the figure served as an ornament.
Below are two photographs in which frozen water shows us the plumbing of gargoyles and, accordingly, their difference from other grotesques.

Perhaps the most famous gargoyles and chimeras adorn or terrify the exterior of Notre Dame Cathedral.
(via 1, 2, 3, 4)
In the Middle Ages, there were only gargoyles on the cathedral. The gallery of chimeras on the facade of Notre Dame de Paris appeared only in the 19th century, during the restoration that began in 1841. The temple was restored after the damage caused to it by the revolution. When Hugo published his novel Notre Dame Cathedral (1831) there were no chimeras on it yet.
Gargoyles can take on many different forms.

A photograph of the building itself can be seen: here
The original name is the Saratov Imperial Russian Musical Society Alekseevskaya Conservatory. Named in honor of the heir to the throne – Tsarevich Alexei. At 19In 1918, the conservatory was nationalized and named the “State Conservatory”. In 1935, the Saratov Conservatory was named after L. V. Sobinov. In the autumn of 1985, the Great Hall of the Conservatory was decorated with an organ by the German firm Sauer.
The building was erected in 1902 by the architect Alexander Yulievich Yagn. Initially, it housed a music school. However, already in 1912 the school was thoroughly reconstructed by the outstanding architect Semyon Akimovich Kallistratov to accommodate the conservatory. After that, the Saratov Conservatory acquired a modern look. (Source)

Grotesque representations of humans and monkeys were sometimes called “baboons” (English babewyns). After all, a monkey, in a sense, is a caricature of a person.
Terms are terms, but why are all these creatures on the walls of churches? Maybe to emphasize the calm and sublimity of the situation inside the temple. The walls of churches protect from evil spirits, which scatter with horror during the construction of the temple, petrified in the course of their flight. Grotesque images personified the sinful world that the parishioners leave when they enter the temple. Grotesques reminded people of sins and the inevitable retribution for them.
Not all ministers of the church liked that the temples of God serve as a refuge for whole crowds of various evil spirits. For example, the enemy was St. Bernard (12th century). A little about this is in the article from “Science and Life”.

P.S. Regarding the gargoyle or gargoyle, gramota.ru reports: “Linguistic dictionaries do not record this word. In accordance with the etymology, it should be written with A (fr. gargouille). But on Wikipedia, this word is recorded with spelling with O, which, in our opinion, is not quite true.”
In paper books and reference books available to me, they also write gargoyle , and gargoyle . In the glossary Pluzhnikov V.I. Terms of the Russian architectural heritage, Moscow: Art, 1995 , pp. 44 – Gargoyles . Wikipedia says more about gargoyle and gargoyle.
