        Weird creatures. From the lore Gargoyles have to be monsters of the Old Izalith Chaos. Stone turned to life. But they aren't obviously. They are artificialy made to serve as guardians. What's left is some sort of sorcery that binds souls to stone. But nothing like that was ever explained. Could it be that the Profaned Flame is the missing link here? At least for the DS3 Gargyoles? That it brought the Gargoyle statues to life? Then on the other hand what have Gargoyles from the Profaned Capitol to do in Lothric Castle? To they protect or besiege the Castle? Same goes for the Boreal Knight from who we get the armor. I thought they were enemies of Lothric. Why is someone sitting in the center of the archives?

          Didn't see it updated but there are a total of 5 Gargoyles (at least!) on the rooftops of Grand Archives. Two can be fought/lured to the broken window (first can be shot/lured right from the broken window/roof, 2nd can be hit by arrow to agro/agitate it from the main roof access...where other 3 are normally found, look up and right as you come out for it's red-weapon flame/grey wing...then go back to broken window and if you can hit it again as it's walking it'll come over and jump down), the other 3 are well known to be outside as you traverse the roof area. I still suspect that there may be something else out there...yep I'm a hopeful for greirat.

            They can fall to their deaths, I've seen it. I was playing with my friend and was leaving Irithyll Dungeon and crossing the bridge into Profaned Capital. The gargoyle then half landed on the bridge and slipped off.

                Not important in the slightest but I miss Dark Souls 1 gargoyles for the goofy attacks, the greenish color, the useless armor they dropped. I just wish we could at least wear their heads.
