Gargoyles are meant to be scary. After all, they were supposed to scare all intruders and evil spirits away from the castles and churches they were tasked with protecting. As ugly and intimidating as many of these creatures are, a few stand out for their frightening demeanor. Among those few extra terrifying gargoyles, one in particular could easily win the prize for most terrifying gargoyle ever. The beast of a sculpture that soundly earns this award is Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows.
We should all count ourselves lucky to know that this fantastic piece of Gothic Décor is a work of art that won't come to life. If that happened it would certainly scare away every would-be intruder in a ten mile radius but it would probably also scare away everyone else! Perched on a craggy rock, Scatheus hisses with wide open maw and glares with animalistic rage as he readies himself for the attack. Looking almost like a cross between a dragon and a gargoyle, he raises his muscled, horribly clawed arms and starts opening his bat-like wings that will take him into the air before he swoops down on his prey.
