The Gargoyle was member of the Pseudo-God Soldiers during the war.


Christopher "Topher" Keynes[1], or otherwise known as "Gargoyle", is a Incarnate soldier with the appearance of said "Gargoyle". He has a stone, scaly skin that covers his muscular body, with a goblin-like skull head with human teeth. He has two wings that come out of his lower back that arch. His claws are sharp and long, using it to slash his victims. He is not one of the biggest Incarnates, height coming in at 7"3.[2]


Described by Hank as "A man driven by a burning sense of justice."[1] he did not hesitate when fighting battles in the war because of said, justice. He was extremely passionate about justice, firmly believing in siding with the north and fighting against the south, saying "Evil is inevitably conquered!".

When a comrade was in doubt, he gave a rousing speech with strong conviction to stir hope back into their hearts; Hank commenting that there may be nothing "just" or "right" about war, but Topher's words made these bitter man want to believe in it.

As an Incarnate, these beliefs hold true, just with a more twisted execution. He was a believer in Christ and by going back to White Church, it shows he still has sentiment for the place he grew into faith. He tries to bring a boy into faith, but somehow ends up killing the helpless lad. The incarnate comes to the realization that all sinners need to be freed from their wrong-doings, and by killing them, Gargoyle helps them be released from their sinning ways. [3]
