Goldie is Abel 's pet gargoyle. The egg from which Goldie hatched had been a gift from Abel's brother, Cain in Preludes and Nocturnes. When Goldie hatched, Abel thought to name it Irving; however, Cain violently insisted that gargoyle names must begin with a G such as Gazpacho, Gormagon, Gladstone or Ganymede. When Abel revived, he prudently named it Goldie, although he said that it would always be Irving in his heart. Goldie lives with Abel in the House of Secrets.
Gregory, who is Cain's gargoyle, often helps Goldie put Abel back together after he is killed.
