Artus - A gargoyle of the Manhattan Clan.


Artus will hatch in the Manhattan Clan's rookery in 2018. He is the eldest of Broadway and Angela’s three children, and older brother to Gwenyvere and Lancelot. Little else is known about him besides the fact that of Broadway and Angela's three children, he is the most likely to be aware of his parentage due to the few rookery-parents in his generation.


Greg Weisman has hinted that Artus will most closely resemble Broadway and Hudson, though most likely will have certain traits from Angela's bloodline as well.

Real World Background

Artus is a French form of the name "Arthur", particularly used as the name of King Arthur in medieval French literature. The combination of this name with that of "Gwenyvere" for his sister and "Lancelot" for his brother would suggest that King Arthur will have some very strong significance for Broadway and Angela. This probably is not surprising, however, in light of how the legends about King Arthur and Merlin inspired Broadway to learn how to read, the fact that Angela was brought up on Avalon, and that both have met King Arthur himself.
