Gregory and Goldie – Gargoyles So Cute You’ll Cry
We are first introduced to Gregory in episode 2 of The Sandman, a huge green gargoyle under the care and protection of Cain and Abel.
Speaking through grunts, only beings in The Dreaming can understand Gregory; however, it is clear from their dealings that Gregory is a beloved member of the family.
Interestingly, in the book series and according to The Sandman Fandom page, “he saves Morpheus from the edge of the Dreaming when Morpheus is too weak to reach his castle and drops the Dream Lord at Abel’s doorstep.”
Gregory was originally created by Dream the Endless, and as such must be sacrificed in order for Dream to regain some of his stored power within the gargoyle.
However, Dream acquires a new gargoyle egg while collecting items for The Fates and brings it back to Abel’s grave – who wakes up to assume it’s Cain’s apology for murdering him. with a fork.
The egg soon hatches and reveals a beautiful gold-colored baby gargoyle. Abel first wants to name the baby ‘Irving’, to which Cain says that gargoyle names have to start with a G.
In the end, the brothers settle on Goldie, though Abel later reveals that he still calls the baby Gargoyle “Girving” in his heart. In the original comics, Goldie was male, but that was changed to female in the 1995 spin-off series The Dreaming.
Adorably, Goldie and Gregory were good friends in the original series, with the latter often helping baby Gargoyle put Abel back together after he was killed by his brother.
