The gryphon was, at one point, a majestic beast soaring the skies of pre-Generica. The species has since been domesticated for use in the dairy industry and lacks nearly all of it's former survival instincts in favor of delicious hocks and butter producing capability.
The gryphon can, with great effort, fly briefly and at a low altitude, much to the annoyance of farmers who spend hundreds of silver every year on domed wire fences to keep their flocks from going astray.
The gryphon is the 7th sign of the Exfolian zodiac, and given to those born under the month of embersky marking the beginning of autumn. Those of this house are typically diplomatic, indolent, likable, indecisive, sociable, and superficial.
