A gargoyle is probably at least 3-10 times stronger than a human being of
equivalent mass, and can shrug off traumas which would fell most animals. While
not invincible their tough skins, dense muscles, and thick bones enable them to
catch sword-blades in their bare hands with but minor cuts, or survive multiple
hits with small-caliber firearms and still remain functional. This extra strength
seems to be mostly naturally produced (gargoyles have tremendous appetites). Gargoyles
are also VERY pain-resistant.
Because of their strength and resistance to physical attacks gargoyles make very good
warriors. They are also found sneaking aroung castles looking like every other statue
around making them good thieves as well. But gargoyles aren't suited to magic roles
because of thier lack of intelligence.
