The Gargoyles


Guardians for the Tremere. The Gargoyles are a bloodline created by the Tremere as servitors. Although technically not a Tremere bloodline, the bloodline is largely under their control. The Gargoyles were created using the blood of three different clans: the Gangrel, the Nosferatu, and the Tzimisce. Mixing the blood of these clans they created a beast that was a formidable fighting force. There are 2 types of Gargoyles in the World of Darkness, Free will and Slaves. The Gargoyles who remain slaves of the Tremere are Camarilla as well, but by default. Most have little or no sense of identity, no memories of existence before being transformed into Gargoyles and no free will. A Tremere-bound Gargoyle who begins to demonstrate more than a rudimentary sense of self is often destroyed.

Descendants of the so-called Slaves who escaped from Tremere domination in centuries past and more recent escapees, the free Gargoyles cluster in isolated communities either in mountain retreats or industrial cities that offer nothing to the Tremere. More adventurous souls flock to the Camarilla cities to offer themselves as bodyguards, muscle and other sorts of labor for hire. It is a show of prestige for a prince to have Gargoyle bodyguards at her Elysium, and a show of strength to be able to afford Gargoyle assassins to deal with enemies.

The Gargoyles main Discipline is called Visceratika which allows the kindred to gain properties of stone, like melding within any stone or stone like surface, stone skin and why Gargoyles are called Guardians, Scry the Heartstone. This allows the Gargoyle to know who or what enters a stone domain at any time while he is in rest acting like a true Guardian.

  11. @Trelin Visceratika allows for melding with any stone or stone like Structure, and makes their skin as stone being created by the Tremere and mixing blood of Gangrel, Nosferatu and Tzimisce brought out blend of disciplines called Visceratika.
