Overview

A griffon is an intelligent beast with the body of a lion and the wings, forelegs, and head of an eagle.

Griffons are majestic magical beasts that combine the features of eagles and lions. These creatures are often used as heraldry symbols and mounts by skilled knights.

A griffon has the body of a lion with the head and wings of an eagle. The forelimbs of the griffon are often like those of an eagle, ending in sharp talons, but this was not always the case. Just as lions and eagles have varying physical characteristics based on where in the world they are found, so too do griffons. An adult griffon is about 8 feet long, with a wingspan of 25 feet. The average griffon weighs about 500 pounds.

BehaviorEdit Griffons were intelligent creatures that made their homes in high places in the mountains. They did this so that their young could be safe from those who would seek to steal them and use them as mounts. Due to the fact that these beasts were intelligent, using a griffon as a mount was seen as a form of slavery in some locations.[citation needed]

In the wild, they lived in open caverns set in hills and mountain regions. When acquainted with humans, they were usually stabled in airy, doorless stone halls, vaguely resembling their lairs.[6]
