ANother World of Darkness - Alpha Network
First introduced in the Storyteller’s Handbook and described in Book of Storyteller Secrets.
The Gargoyles are an attempt of the Tremere to create a bloodline of servants. The original Gargoyles are supposed to be of 8th generation.
[Are the Gargoyle a bloodline]
The original Gargoyles of Coeris were neither embraced nor transformed by ritual. They were instead assembled from the remains of Tzimisce, Nosferatu and Gangrel and ‘birthed’ via a grotesque Level 5 Ritual called At Our Command it Breathes. After the Slaves revolt, the Tremere abandon this ritual, though Fidus is thought to still make use of it in modern nights. The main birthing creature at Ceoris is called Alvusia (see below) and is quote obscene.
Some other original Gargoyle were vampires transformed by a ritual.
But Gargoyles are not a bloodline, like Caitiff are not a clan, in the genealogical sense of the term.
