Wyvern in 971.

Wyvern is a dragon who lived deep beneath the ground in the caverns of Wyvern Hill.


At some point in the past, Wyvern brought a clan of gargoyles to what would become known as Wyvern Hill, and those gargoyles would become the ancestors of the Wyvern Clan. He brought the gargoyles to Wyvern to protect his lands, his treasure, and his rest from the humans.

In 971, Wyvern was awoken by the arrival in his cave of Antiope, the Trio, and Alesand. ("The Dream")



Production Background

Mentor, Goliath, and Angel battle Wyvern in the Gargoyles: Dark Ages pitch. Despite its appearance in at least eleven conventions, the fandom didn't seem to pick up on this.

Wyvern appeared in one of the pitch cards for Gargoyles: Dark Ages that Greg Weisman used to try to sell the show to Disney in 1996, and played at every Gathering of the Gargoyles convention starting in 1999 until the convention ended in 2009. Funny enough, the fanbase never guessed the significance of the dragon. [1]
