Griffins are giant eagle-lions creatures.
Griffons hunt in packs and are considered a serious threat in northern Izril and Terandria, though much less in the southern half of Izril. They have a territorial relationship with Wyverns and have pushed into their habitat after crossing the sea from Terandria.
It is possible to tame Griffins when they are raised from being babies. In Terandria, the nation of Kaliv is famous for having a fighting force riding on Griffins under the command of the Griffin Queen, Novakya. Her son, the exiled Griffin Prince, also rides one of the beasts, as does Talia Kallinad, whose favorite War-Griffin is called Amberwing.
