I know you hate quantifying, so I'm trying to word this question in a way that avoids that. Basically, was the death toll for gargoyles in Wyvern (between 974 and 994 I guess), very big? I mean, we know that Hudson's mate died but would she be an exception or one of quite a few? In "DARK AGES" terms would any (many?) main characters die?

(Obviously, not including everybody that died in the Massacre in the above question.)

Greg responds...

A few. Not hordes. That would undercut the massacre.

Oh, and you mentioned that one of the antagonists in "Dark Ages" was to be Constantine's father, but you'd forgotten his name. I've read up quite a bit on that period of Scottish history recently (thanks to "Gargoyles", of course), and discovered that his father's name was Culen - and that apparently this is the same Culen who appears in your "Once Upon A Time There Were Three Brothers" story, as the enemy of Kenneth II and Prince Malcolm.

Greg responds...

Exactly. Like I said, I just blanked out on the name.

In a recent response you said it was "very disconcerting" that Goliath had been named by 984 in "Long Way to Morning."

However, in a response on 02-02-2000 you said that Prince Malcom named him about 971 AD.

Hopefully that makes you feel less disconcerted.

(I also hope that you're encouraged to know that at least one person reads the archives.)

Greg responds...

Yeah. Thanks.

Did I say that definitively? Cause in my head, I hadn't decided that yet. Hmmm....

Who would be the villains for Dark Ages besides the Archmage?

Greg responds...

Iago, for one.

Constantine's father (I'm blanking on his name right now).

The Illuminati.

And others...

In "Possession", Iago cries at one point, "By the Dragon!" (And I've seen you use similar invocations of "the Dragon" here at least once, for that matter). Just out of curiosity, what is the "Dragon"? (I'm assuming that it has some religious significance for the Wyvern clan, judging from its context, but I won't dare hypothesize anything more than that - particularly on account of the rules).

Greg responds...

I never said it was religious.

You said that Broadway has a sibling, presumably a sister, named Hyppolyta. Where is she currently--- on Avalon? Was she slaughtered at the Wyvern massacre?

Greg responds...

She's dead. I'm not saying more than that now.

Dear Greg Here's another set of questions for you.
1a)How did Demona find those five gargs in City of Stone?
1b)Were the a few clans in Scotland?
2a)Did have a rookery?
2b)Did Demona contribute?
3a)Why did Demona treat her clan more like an army ten family?
3b)Why did Demona do nothing to stop the princess,magus and Tom when they took the clan's eggs?
Thanks

Greg responds...

1a. She searched around. And there were more than five. But they lived in "cells" so that the Hunter couldn't stumble on any one location and destroy them all.

b. I know there's a typo in there, but I still am not sure what this question is.

2a. Demona's clan? Probably they had one when they needed one.

2b. No.

3a. Why do YOU think?

3b. Paralyzing guilt.

G'day Greg

Would any of the spinoffs featured the Pack (or at least members of the Pack) as villains?

Thank you for your time.

Greg responds...

Sure. Most. Let's see...

Gargoyles
Bad Guys
Gargoyles 2158 (revised)

for sure...

And I wouldn't be surprised if we also saw them in

Pendragon
New Olympians
TimeDancer

But I would be surprised if they showed up in

Dark Ages

Would we have seen Hyppolyta on any series other than Dark Ages?

How did she get her name? Was she aware that she had a name (like Goliath) or unaware of it (Othello, Desdemona etc)?

Greg responds...

Possibly TimeDancer. Flashbacks in GARGOYLES, maybe.

That's a decision, I'm still mulling over, frankly. Did anyone notice that Goliath was already named by 984 in "Long Way To Morning"? I didn't, until a recent reviewing revealed it. Very disconcerting.
