Goliath – Gargoyles

Goliath was the leader of the Wyvern Clan, and is now the leader of the Manhattan Clan.

Goliath was hatched with his rookery in the year 938. By the year 971, he was already one of the more noteworthy young warriors in the clan. In that year, Prince Malcolm made his alliance with the Wyvern Clan; during that time, he bestowed the name “Goliath” upon the gargoyle, comparing him in strength and battle-prowess to the Philistine giant who fought and was slain by the young David; on a darker note, the name also evoked the fear that most humans held towards gargoyles, given that its original was one of the best-known villains in the Bible. Thus, even by 994, Goliath was the only gargoyle in the clan to bear a name, and it is likely that even he did not view it as anything more than an odd human label.
