Capabilities

The user is or has the ability to take on the form of a Griffin, a creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. Most griffins also have bird-like talons, although in some older illustrations griffins have a lion's forelimbs (and are technically called opinicus), they generally only have a lion's hindquarters. The eagle's head is conventionally given prominent ears; these are sometimes described as the lion's ears but are often elongated (more like a horse's) and sometimes feathered.

A griffin without wings, or a wingless eagle-headed lion, is called an alce or a keythong.

Griffins are most often interpreted as the noblest of creatures, symbolizing courage and vigilance repeatedly (similar to how eagles and lions symbolize leadership and courage, respectfully) throughout popular culture and other media.
