|Stepping up as leader of the clan.|
One of the last survivors of Clan Wyvern, Brooklyn is the Second in Command of the Manhattan Clan. Once a brash, hot-headed and highly inexperienced, his time in New York has taught Brooklyn well. Promoted to the leadership position when Goliath vanished, Brooklyn successfully lead the clan, using the skills and tactics that he had picked up from Goliath, as well as his own knowledge. Although not nearly as brash as he once was, he's still prone to the occasional sarcastic remark and witty one-liner. There is one thing that will set him off quicker than any other, however, and that is Demona, whom he despises. As a gargoyle, his primary style of fighting is up close and personal, using his superior strength and speed to overwhelm his opponents, as well as his talons and claws to get in and do real damage. He's never been a fan of any sort of weapon, be it ranged or melee, and has not trained much with them.
Born in the year 958 A.D. at Castle Wyvern in Scotland, Brooklyn was, at the time, one of the many un-named younger gargoyles of the clan. Dedicated to the protection of the catle and it's inhabitants, him and his brothers were still mistreated and mistrusted by the humans they were sworn to protect. Although usually well behaved, this mistreatment eventually came to a head one fateful night in 994 A.D. Having been chatting with one of the human children, the boy's mother hit him with a stick and called him a beast. He finally lost his temper, though before anything too serious could happen, himself and two of his brothers, as well as their gargoyle beast, were caught and punished by Goliath, forced to spend the rest of the night in the Rookery. This is what would, in turn, save their lives.
That day was the day where the captain of the guard, the one human the gargoyles truely trusted, betrayed them to Hakon, the leader of the vikings who had been attacking the castle. Hakon smashed the gargoyles who were helpless in their stone sleep, unaware that a few were not among those who were destroyed. Upon his return that night, Goliath found the castle sacked and abandoned, the gargoyles smashed, with only the four he had sent into the Rookery the night before, as well as the eggs, having survived. Goliath lead a counter attack upon the vikings, which Brooklyn participated in, but during the battle, the magus thought the princess was killed, and in his grief, used a spell to turn Brooklyn and the other gargoyles to stone, until such time as the castle was 'raised above the clouds.'
And there they sat, for a thousand years, until the year 1994, when David Xanatos brought the castle, brick by brick, to New York City. The spell was broken, and once again they walked the earth. But this was not the world they knew. This new world was foreign to them, confusing and strange. The clan soon met with Elisa Maza, a detective in the New York Police Department, but shortly afterwards the castle was attacked. They fended off the attack, but soon learned that there was more danger here in this new time than they could have ever experienced in their original time.
In due time, however, the gargoyles took names, with the name Brooklyn being chosen by him, because he thought that it sounded cool. Along with his brothers, Lexington and Broadway, and their gargoyle beast Bronx, they took the city of New York under their protection, the same as they had when it was just their castle. Of course it wasn't long before the clan soon found that their benefactor, Xanatos, was not all he appeared to be. Betrayed by him, they soon found themselves in search of a new home, and they found one in the clock tower of Elisa's police precinct. It was from here that their destiny to protect the city would be forged.
Several elements shaped Brooklyn's views on the world, from his ill-fated adventure with a motorcycle, to the incident where Demona tricked him into allowing her to put Goliath under her spell, Brooklyn grew and matured as time went on in the Big Apple. While the others found various pursuits to focus on, Lexington with his machines and Broadway with his food, Brooklyn always stayed focused on the mission at hand, and this is why when it came time to choose a second in command, he was Goliath's natural choice. However, he found himself forced to step up to the mantle of leadership far earlier than he had anticipated.
When Goliath, Elisa and Bronx vanished off to Avalon, it fell to Brooklyn to lead the remaining clan members, and he excelled. Despite being down manpower, he managed to continue to keep the city safe against ever evolving threats, particularly from the Pack, but also Demona and some unexpected foes in the Labrynth. For now, however, he does his best to lead the clan while waiting for Goliath to return from his journey.
Although once a brash, hot-headed youngster, Brooklyn has been forced to mature quickly with Goliath's disappearance. Even before Golath went on his world tour, Brooklyn was starting to show signs of being a future clan leader himself, often taking charge of the trio, as well as learning the various skills and tactics needed to be an effective leader. In addition to that, he adapted well to the 20th century, although not as technologically savvy as Lexington is, he's still able to operate modern technology without much trouble, as opposed to the older gargoyles, Goliath and Hudson.
Unlike his 'brothers' however, Brooklyn does not have a single minded focus on one thing or another, but instead does his best to learn as much about everything that he can. This kind of jack-of-all trades attitude allows him to be prepared for any situations that he may come across. This, in part, is what lead to his appointment as the second in command of the clan, and his success as the clan leader in Goliath's absense.
He does still have some flaws, however. Much like Lexington's reaction to the members of the Pack, Brooklyn suffers from an absolute hatred of Demona, to the point where he will abandon reason when he spots her, opting to attack her outright, regardless of the initial plan. This often leads him into trouble, considering Demona has had a thousand years more experience at combat and trechery than he has. Even so, he can sometimes pull it together enough to be able to get her to fall into a trap, but more often than not, needs the help of his brothers to defeat her.
During his time in New York, Brooklyn has developed a liking for modern day food. In particular, pizzas and cheeseburgers have become two of his favorites, though he will admit to missing a nice leg of lamb from time to time back in Scotland. He's thankful that Broadway learned how to cook, because it's a skill Brooklyn never picked up himself, although he's always happy to partake in Brooklyn's cooking, when he's not ordering out for pizza.
With the discovery of the worlds outside of Manhattan and, of course, the downfall of some of those worlds, Brooklyn has decided to redouble his efforts to make sure that Manhattan stays safe, but at the same time, now knows that there are other worlds out there that require his protection as well. As the leader of the clan until Goliath gets back, if Goliath gets back, he has decided that any worlds that need the help of his clan shall recieve it. They cannot stand idly by and just defend New York when there is so many more places out there that require help.
