Gavorial was a stone giant serving as a member of the Giant Guard of Hartsvale.[1]


Gavorial was bald.[1]


As a member of the Giant Guard, Gavorial served as a sort of ambassador between the humans of Hartsvale and the stone giants. His duty was to defend King Camden, and his post was Earls Bridge.[1]


In 1366 DR, when Princess Brianna returned to Castle Hartwick after her abduction, Gavorial attempted to arrest her and bring her to the Twilight Spirit; however, Tavis Burdun aimed an arrow at Brianna and threatened to kill her rather than allow Gavorial to take her. Since Gavorial knew that the Twilight Spirit had no use for a dead princess, he instead departed.[2]
