Gathering

From GargWiki

For other uses of the name, see The Gathering.

The Gathering is a grand assembly of Oberon's Children, held on Avalon at the end of their thousand and one year banishment from the island.

History

The existence of such an assembly was revealed to Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx during the Avalon World Tour and finally began during the summer of 1996. ("The Gathering" Part One)

Every member of the Third Race returned to attend the Gathering with three exceptions:

  • Titania, Oberon's wife, was allowed to come and go as she pleased.
  • Banshee was dragged back to Avalon by the Weird Sisters and subsequently gagged as punishment.
  • Puck was eventually banished from Avalon for life.

While it lasts, the Third Race are presumably barred from leaving Avalon (except for Oberon himself and Titania, who can come and go as they please). In the near future, Anansi, Coyote, and Raven will have Oberon's permission to leave the island for a very specific, but as yet unknown, purpose. ("The Gathering" Part Two) [1]

How long the Gathering will last is as yet unknown, but it will continue at least until 2198 (only eight years of time on Avalon). [2]

Real World Background

The annual Gargoyles fan convention, Gathering of the Gargoyles, was named after the Gathering.
