Capabilities

The user is or has the ability to take on the form of Griffin, a creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. Most griffins have bird-like talons, although in some older illustrations griffins have a lion's forelimbs (and are technically called opinicus) they generally have a lion's hindquarters. 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 are sometimes feathered.

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

A Griffin is most often interpreted as the noblest of creatures. Symbolizing courage and vigilism repeatedly (similar to how Eagles and Lions symbolize leadership and courage respectfully) throughout popular culture and other media.
