The Gorgon (ゴーゴン) is an enemy-only class from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. They are snake-like creatures with a human head and snakes for hair. They often wield Stone and Shadowshot and have the potential to be dangerous foes. They are hatched from a Gorgon Egg. The Gorgon also appears as a stage boss in Two Faces of Evil, the first stage that you encounter Gorgons and Gorgon Eggs. Gorgons can also be encountered in Melkaen Coast, Nerelas Peak, Floor 8 of the Tower of Valni, and in Floors 3+ in Lagdou Ruins.
As mage units tend to have low health, these creatures have higher HP then Arch Mogalls. Gorgons are the only monster mage unit to have over 40 HP (which is the boss in Two Faces of Evil).
Gorgons are terrifying female creatures from Greek mythology. The term refers to any of the three sisters who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying gaze that would turn those who looked into stone. This is fitting for the game's depiction of them, in which they have snake-like hair, and their class exclusive Stone magic.
