One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. It was a time of darkness, it was a world of fear. It was the age of Gargoyles.
In the year 1014, the clan of Gargoyles who lived at Castle Wyvern in Scotland were a proud and noble race, until one fateful day where they were betrayed and destroyed, save for a handful of them. This group soon found themselves turned to stone, trapped in this form for a thousand years.
In that thousand years, they sat and waited, until a man named David Xanatos found them and brought the clan and castle to New York City, where he was able to break the spell which kept them in their stone form. A lot had changed for the gargoyles in the thousand years they had been asleep. But threats, both old and new, would be ever present. A world of technology now learning to adapt to the magic of the old world.
It has been one year since their arrival in this strange new millennium, and while they have done their best to adjust to the world, the arrival of the multiverse has added a new layer of danger and mystery to the already complicated lives of the denizens of their world.
