Preying upon the fear and vulnerability of a public still reeling from the revelation that gargoyles existed in Manhattan, Castaway lured a number of New York citizens including, for a short time, Vinnie, and also Sarah Browne, Lou, and Chaz into his organization, employing Banquo and Fleance as officers to train these recruits for battle. Under his leadership, the Quarrymen now search New York for gargoyles, hoping to destroy or at least contain them.
By 2198, the Quarrymen have become an unpopular and "politically incorrect" organization. But when the Space-Spawn attack Earth, rumors begin - encouraged by the Illuminati as part of their alliance with the aliens - that the gargoyles were collaborating with the Space-Spawn and helped them abduct the human world leaders at Queen Florence Island. The Quarrymen undergo a revival, waging war upon the gargoyles once more (they don't like the Space-Spawn much, but they hate the gargoyles still more).
The Quarrymen wear black uniforms. Each also wears a hood (vaguely evocative of both the Ku Klux Klan and an executioner's hood) and carries electrically-charged hammers capable of shattering a gargoyle in his or her stone sleep, or doing damage to him or her while awake. They also carry firearms. The organization also possesses at least one helicopter for hunting airborne gargoyles as well as vans and other vehicles. Their main offices are located at the Quarryman Brownstone.
Each Quarryman also wears a distinctive badge bearing the symbol of the organisation: a stylised letter 'Q' formed from a Quarryman hammer and the greater arc of a circle around the hammer's head.
The name 'Quarryman' is particularly apt as it has something of a double meaning. Quarry could refer to their intentions to break up stone, or in this case destroy stone-like gargoyles, but quarry, meaning prey, also points to their descent from the Hunter legacy via John Castaway.
The Quarrymen, with or without Castaway would continue pursuit against the gargoyles. They would employ Jackal and Hyena to attach some weapons to Broadway which would automatically fire and discredit him in the public. ("Broadway Goes to Hollywood")
Early on, the group seems to genuinely fear the gargoyles, but later encounters ("Generations") show otherwise as they set up a mugging with the intent of forcing them out.
