Gargoyle Removal Service is a quest available in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.


After finishing the Dead Ex quest and meeting Gary Golden, if the Fledgling asks Isaac if he needs help with anything, he'll give them this quest.



  1. Talk to Isaac.
  2. Go to the Tremere Chantry and talk to Strauss. Given enough persuasion or to a Tremere, he'll reveal that he created the Gargoyle. He will also give an item that increases defense against the Gargoyle.
  3. Go back to Hollywood and enter the Asian Theater.
  4. Kill or talk down the Gargoyle.
  5. Collect reward from Isaac. If he is not told that Strauss created the Gargoyle, Strauss will give the fledgling the Fae Charm. (Unofficial Patch Plus only).


Get the Chinese Theater Key from Isaac, then go Downtown and visit Maximillian Strauss. There, he'll reveal (with enough points in persuasion, or if the fledgling is a Tremere) that the Gargoyle is his making and that he wants it destroyed. He'll also give the fledgling the Rune of the Third Eye, which offers some protection against the Gargoyle. There are now two options regarding the Gargoyle's fate:

  1. Attempt to kill it. The Gargoyle is completely immune to firearms, and must be fought with melee weapons or brawling. Blunt weapons are preferable, specifically the sledgehammer. If the Fledgling is a Tremere, revealing this to the Gargoyle will result in combat. (Experience Rewarded (Icon) 3 EXP)
  2. Convince it to ally with Isaac. (Experience Rewarded (Icon) 3 EXP)

Whichever approach is chosen, it's possible to return to Strauss for a small reward of $500. If the nonlethal approach is used, Strauss can be lied to regarding the Gargoyle's fate. If the fledgling is a Tremere, and has completed the quest A Plague for the Angels, Strauss will offer the Tremere Chantry as a new haven, and give the fledgling a proper induction into the clan as an apprentice.

It is possible to go back to Isaac (Experience Rewarded (Icon) 1 EXP and a Masquerade Redemption (Icon) Masquerade Redemption if playing with the Unofficial Patch Plus) and tell him that Strauss is the Gargoyle's creator (Experience Rewarded (Icon) 2 EXP). However, this will indefinitely close the Tremere Chantry for the fledgling's use as a haven.
