Though the exact details are currently unknown, it seems very likely that Kermit left the Wyvern Clan to join the Wyvern Splinter Clan when it was formed sometime between 988 and 994. He somehow managed to escape whatever fate befell the rest of his clan along with a few other gargoyles who eventually joined the Wyvern Cell of Demona's Clan.
He was not present at the Battle of Rathveramoen due to his young age, but as he grew older he became a warrior among Demona's Clan. He and the clan would raid human food stores to survive. ("Tyrants", City of Stone" Part One)
Shortly thereafter, the clan assisted Macbeth in his battle against Duncan and after they defeated him, Macbeth placed the clan under his protection, hoping for a new golden age between humans and gargoyles. Kermit was actually present when Macbeth was crowned King of Scotland and Demona was named and appointed Macbeth's primary advisor, an event which clearly pleased him a great deal.
Unfortunately this time of happiness would not last. Only seventeen years later, in 1057, the clan was at war with humans again, this time with Canmore and his English allies. Kermit continued to fight alongside his clan. Sadly, Demona betrayed Macbeth to Canmore, giving Canmore the opportunity to betray her. Canmore and his men destroyed Kermit and the rest of the clan, leaving Demona alone. ("City of Stone" Part Four)
Kermit was a small-statured gargoyle who was green in color. He had very simple wings, a small beak and two horns. He was hairless.

Behind the Scenes
This character was referred to as "Kermit" in the scripts for the comics he appears in. Like "Othello," "Desdemona" and "Iago," it is a non-canon name which is never used in the actual comics. Calling him "Kermit" was probably just simpler than calling him "Little Green Gargoyle" or the like when his name had to be typed repeatedly. Clearly Greg Weisman gave him this name as his appearance is evocative of "Kermit the Frog".
