The Siberian clan was one of the few clans that lived in relative comfort with the humans they protected. Residing around a small village in northern Russia, the clan had been there since before the village was established. Over the span of the village’s growth, the clan would often times trade things like meat or other goods for furs contusive to the clan’s survival in addition to the protection they offered.
In 2002, this peace came to an unsteady halt when a stranger arrived in the village, having been exiled from Moscow for being unable to deliver a thoroughly promised engineering product. This stranger, a man named Vaako, slowly began to convince the villagers that their gargoyle companions were not only abominations, but that they would turn on the humans eventually. Vaako’s message did get through after much persuasion and while a small group was out hunting, the villagers and Vaako waited until sunrise and destroyed the gargoyles they’d sworn to protect, inadvertently sparing those that did not make it home that night.
The surviving clan members returned to find their family in rubble. Most of them became filled with rage and, sparing only the women and children of the village, they killed all the men, including Vaako, and destroyed much of the village. In light of this, the other eldest of them found that he could not lead in his age, and the other clan members could not, not without wisdom or tolerance. Zoya, a young gargoyle, became the clan leader.
Recalling that in 1998 they had been approached by a representative of Xanatos Enterprises about moving the clan to a place of safety, Zoya swallowed her pride for her home and sought out Xanatos. Telling him of the continued violence against gargoyles, Xanatos welcomed them to Manhattan. Taking their 5 childre and the remaining six adult gargoyles, the Siberian clan made the move to America.
The clan population suffered durastically after the massacre in Siberia. However, the remaining members are listed below as well as some other names.

Life in ManhattanEdit
In 2002 the Siberian clan made a permanent move to the United States. While their stay ate Wyvern Castle had originally planned to be brief, the inability to find a safe, new home as well as fear of another Quarrymen rise led them to remain at Wyvern castle for the time being.
