Gargoyles are a demi-human race of sea dragons whose origins in human mythology start in the Christian legend of France.
In the legend, a terrible sea serpent known as 'the Gargouille' one day emerged from the Seine River and began to spew water about the country side to create a great tidal wave. Whatever the waters did not kill, the dragon devoured for its meal.
The archbishop of Rouen, St. Romain, intended to put a stop to the problem. Legend has it that all it took to calm the dragon was the symbol of the cross made by St. Romain's fingers. At the sign, the dragon fell docile, and the archbishop bound the dragon by the neck and led it back to the local township. The people condemn the dragon to die by fire, since it killed so many with water. The people burn the creature, and they cast the pile of ash it left behind into the Seine River, from where the dragon first had come.
Regardless of the authenticity of this legend, Gargoyles are now regarded as personifications of evil who paradoxically serve as protectors from other evil creatures (possibly as penance for what the Gargouille did).
