Gaia is Emerald's pet gargoyle in the Legend of Sapphire series.
Like a gargoyle, Gaia is made of stone but has glowing green eyes that glow in the dark. He also has two horns on his head and a massive pair of stone wings that allow him to fly at great speeds even with his heavy weight. He can stand up on his hind legs reaching a hight equivalent to Jasper but most of the time, he would rather be on all fours giving him great running speed.
Before he met Emerald, Gaia was a very vengeful gargoyle that was added to the church in Beach City. He was very dangerous with his determination and courage in battle making Gaia a very dangerous foe in battle. But now that Emerald was able to tame the gargoyle, Gaia is a little more gentle but in battle is as brave and relentless as he was before he battle against Emerald. Most of the time, he is seen around Emerald or Garnet and is known to sometimes pin someone down and lick them as a form of affection for someone.
