Arrow did indeed follow behind Sigrid, and his eyes went to the sky when the first screeches were heard. The archer narrowed his eyes at the silhouettes of the gargoyles that descended from the sky toward them, lifting his bow from his back and nocking an arrow to it. "It seems that the first instance of combat shall be at least partially aerial, my lady Sigrid." Arrow murmured, locking his eyes onto one shape that soared overhead. "I shall draw their attention to us, I think; ready yourself."

At Arrow's words, the arcane archer moved his hand over to the end of the nocked arrow, briefly brushing against it. Where his hand passed, the arrow's tip became alight with glowing fire, and he grinned. Lifting the bow skywards, Arrow aimed the weapon at the gargoyle that moved over them, and loosed. The arrow shot into the sky, unnaturally bright as it soared upwards, illuminating the area around them briefly before passing too high for the light to reach them. Arrow's aim was true, and the arrow head embedded itself into the gargoyle, knocking it backwards with a screech. It did not finish there, however, even as the creature began to descend in a flailing of wings. After a few moments, the arrow exploded like a firework, creating a loud bang that could be heard from several blocks away, as well as a burning light in the sky, only slightly obscured by bits of gargoyle.

"I give it three... two... one..." Arrow began, and as the archer had predicted, in only a few moments time a great deal more gargoyles appeared within the pair's field of vision, attracted to the light. "Ah, there we go. Much better!"

Arrow lifted his bow once more, nocking another arrow, and began to fire. His arrows flew true every time, striking gargoyles down in various manners ranging from crackling spasms brought about by surges of electricity, down in blocks of ice, or even in one interesting instance in through a nearby window, at which Arrow winced and called "Sorry!" at the responding screeching from inside as the gargoyle's corpse came to a rest in somebody's kitchen.

Of course, as accurate and fast as Arrow was, his little light show had drawn more gargoyles than he could take down before they reached him, and about half a dozen of the creatures descended nearby to attack both he and Sigrid in close range. The sound of booted feet as a group of the city watch approached was audible nearby -- it seemed they had noticed the concentration of the creatures descending toward this particular street. Whether there would be any gargoyles left by the time they got there was another matter...
