Gargoyle – small character
Surly, who originated from Keron’s nest, was Thorwald’s first wife, whom he married when he became adult in order to keep their family line going. It wasn’t love match at first, but they held great respect towards each other and thus it wasn’t unhappy life. Or maybe it’s memory of a dead that keeps better memories alive than the bad.
She was very young, about 25 and they had not had their first brood yet when the Griffin, whose task Thorwald had failed, burnt her alive in front of every Bishop in the group to make a statement. Times were different, gargoyles could not go against someone, whom they were bound to through the blood contract. So they were forced to watch her death and could do nothing. They never forgave Griffin, however it took them nearly a decade before they could do anything about it.
