Thread Name: A Message for Gargoyle
Subject: RE: A Message for Gargoyle
The Gargoyle as we know him epitomizes the quintessential human condition: a mixture of good and evil. Most of us try to suppress the ugly side of ourselves, sometimes with grave psychological consequences. The Gargoyle recognizes the dual nature of our true selves and chooses to display the good or evil side, as the situation - as he sees it - demands. Defense mechanisms and survival instincts operating within us give precedence to remembering the negative encounters over the positive ones, but in even the most wicked of creatures, if one is willing to look hard enough, one can find a scrap of goodness. The Gargoyle is no exception.
