Uriel - bio
NAME:
Uriel
SPECIES:
Gargoyle
GENDER:
Male
HEIGHT:
2.13 m
WEIGHT:
174 kg

For untold eons, Mankind has known and feared Uriel's diabolical kind. The aura of evil and death hanging around this gladiator is enough to send a chill down the spine of any opponent.

Ages before anything even vaguely human was drawn into the Eternal Arenas, Uriel, the Dark Angel of Death reigned supreme. Rumored to be a descendant of the Masters themselves, Uriel's race inspired lesser creatures to cower in terror at the mention of their rending claws and mystic might. Although defeat will be the only release from a life of never-ending combat, the angel of death and destruction will only be beaten by one worthy to ascend to the next tier of combat...
