Gryphons have the forequarters of an eagle and the hindquarters of a lion. They generally stand about the height of a lion, with a very large wingspan. Gryphons live in family groups and are very protective of their young. Gryphons are generally considered to be very smart creatures.
Gryphons are very rare on the Northern Continent, with a larger population existing on the Southern Continent, concentrated around the mountain ranges. Gryphons are hunted for their feathers.
