Sevarius makes clones of the each member of Goliath's clan (except Goliath, because Thailog is there) while Demona is in prison.   Thailog breaks Demona out and Fang goes with them.   Thailog leads the gargoyles to an ambush where they have to fight their clones while Fang takes on Talon.   All the gargoyles manage to get captured, but Demona frees them when Thailog threatens to kill Angela. Then, Thailog introduces Deliliah and they fight again. This time, Thailog and Demona fight each other and Fang fights Talon while the gargoyles use teamwork to defeat the clones.

Brief Biographies of known members of the Labyrinth Clan

The Mutates

All of the mutates except Sharon were created by David Xanatos.


known to his immediate family as Derek Maza.   He is Elisa Maza's brother.   He was a helicopter pilot for the New York City Police Department.   David Xanatos offered him a job as bodyguard which he accepted.   Afterwards, he was shot with mutagen.

Maggie Reed

She used to live in Ohio.   married Talon.


formerly Theodore West.   Claw was actually a college student studying science, genetics in particular.   He is also adept at technological gadgets, much like Lexington.   During his college days, he was under the tutilage of Dr. Anton Servarius.   Claw admired Servarius's breakthroughs in genetics and his persistence for trying the impossible.   He was admitted as an assistant to Servarius, who saw Claw as a future guinea pig rather than a partner.   When Xanatos hired Servarius to create the mutates, he chose Claw as the first test subject.   Claw was overjoyed and disregarded the possible effects and the purpose of the experiment.   The end result was his mutation.

Claw saw what he had become and wanted to kill Servarius for making him a freak.   However, he knew that Servarius had a cure and abstained from harming him.   Still unable to control his powers, he almost killed a lab assistant with his electric touch.   Ever since, the fear of what he has become haunts Claw.   When he noticed that his normal voice became much, much deeper, he refrained from speaking, since even he was afraid of the sound he uttered.   He also does this to keep his past hidden, since he would be seen as a fool if he ever told anyone of how he became this way.

Claw is naturally a timid man.   He is afraid of altercations and will only fight when bullied or when he is convinced it is the right thing to do.   He seeks kindness and fairness from all and loves his current job of helping out the homeless in The Labyrinth.   But he also has a secret desire to transform back into a human being.   If Talon was not so strong in convincing and Fang not so overpowering, he would have gladly taken the supposed cure that was offered earlier ago, when Goliath kidnapped Servarius.   His desire for normalcy, despite his newfound purpose, is what drives Claw.   Although he won't go about finding the cure through violent means, he will certainly take the opportunities given that promise a cure.


formerly Steve Fisher.   He attempted to take over the Labyrinth and was put in a prison cell.   Later, he escaped from the Labyrinth during the events of "Turncoat" and hasn't been seen since.


Sharon Nomura ran away to escape from being married to a member of the Japanese mafia.   She willingly became a mutate in order to stop that man and protect her family.
