Quote "A good detective trusts no one." "What could be strong enough to leave claw-marks in solid stone...?"

Elisa Maza is a character from the TV show Gargoyles. The closest human friend to the clan and the love interest of Goliath, she is a detective that assists the gargoyles in adapting to the modern world. She is voiced by Salli Richardson.



Being a cop in a big city, Elisa can be tough when the situation calls for it. When she first meets the gargoyles, she is quite skeptic about them, but becomes fast friends. She cares for the well being of them, going far as to keep tabs on Xanatos when the gargoyles or her family are involved. Over the course of the series, she develops romantic feelings for Goliath, who also harbors feelings for her as well. However, they both do not admit how they feel about each other as they have doubts that a relationship could work between them becuase of their different species. Eventually, they are able to get past this once they realize that they care for each other to deeply and finally confess their feelings in the three-part Season 2 finale, Hunter's Moon. They become a couple soon after this and remain together during the third and finale season of the show.

Physical Description

Elisa has black hair with brown eyes and dark copper skin similar in appearance to Pocahontas. Her normal outfit consists of black boots, light blue jeans, a black shirt, and a red leather jacket. During the Avalon World Tour, she dons other outfits while visiting the different locations.

When Puck uses his magic to transform her into a gargoyle, Elisa loses her jacket, with its red leather color going to her wings while retaining her normal human skin color. She gains another foot in height, revealing her waist, along with a human skin-colored tail. She loses her shoes and gains double-jointed bare feet. She also gains extra bone structure on her forehead with small horns and bigger eyes.
