NIGHTBRINGER | The Arthurian Encyclopedia


A hideous half-man, half-horse sea demon that terrorized the land of Averre. He carried a Gorgon’s head that turned people to stone.

Queen Laudamie of Averre enlisted Arthur’s Sir Garel to slay the creature, and he was able to do so after his friend, the dwarf king Albewin, stole the Gorgon’s head.

After Garel killed Vulganus, Albewin stripped its skin and used it to fashion an impenetrable suit of armor.
