Bronx - The Wyvern clan’s gargoyle beast.


Bronx was hatched in the year 978, and quickly grew to become a formidable "watchdog" for the gargoyles, resolutely defending Castle Wyvern against its enemies. He survived the Wyvern Massacre in 994 because he had been sent down to the rookery with the trio by Goliath for getting into a fight with some of the humans, but was afterwards turned to stone by the Magus, to be only re-awakened a thousand years later when Xanatos moved Castle Wyvern to the Eyrie Building.

Bronx took less part in the clan’s adventures than did the other gargoyles, largely because he lacks wings; he stays home, instead, and snoozes beside Hudson’s recliner. In fact, Bronx spends most of his time there sleeping (occasionally on Lexington’s magazines when Lex wants to read them). He also has a formidable appetite, and will eagerly eat anything as long as it counts as food.

But Bronx is still a redoubtable fighter (if his "stay-at-home" role gives him less opportunity to display it). He can successfully intimidate the gargoyles’ opponents when he charges at them, growling, and has powerful jaws; he once chewed half the face off Coyote 1.0 (giving it its distinctive half-human half-robot visage that all future Coyote robots have borne). This makes him a valuable member of the clan. He is also an excellent judge of character, trusting those who are true friends of the gargoyles and growling in a very hostile fashion at enemies, even enemies pretending to be friends.

While Bronx’s adventures in New York were few, he did accompany Goliath, Elisa, and Angela on the Avalon World Tour. His greatest adventure there came when he met Rory Dugan in Ireland, and helped him realize his true destiny as the reincarnation of Cuchulain. He and Boudicca, whom he met on Avalon, have become mates, if currently separated ones.


Bronx’s name was bestowed upon him by Brooklyn in 1994, after the Bronx in New York (presumably because it sounded close enough to an animal’s bark or growl).
