This young gryphon seems to always be on fire, the ends of its feathers and tail covered in beautiful flames. Its orange and red feathers are always warm, and it loves to bask in the sun or in front of a fire. It is already beginning to fly short distances, and makes screeching sounds when approached too quickly. Becoming more muscled with each passing day, it consumes rather a lot of meat, although now it has started to hunt on its own, returning sated. This creature has its first tail feathers and small talons and loves imitating its elders, taking small hops and extending its bright wings.
Gryphons are noble and majestic creatures, and their eggs are not often come by. Gryphons nest high in mountains, and protect their young fiercely. If an egg is acquired, it was through permission and not theft. These creatures live for hundreds of years, and are wise, powerful beings. If a master is kind and loving enough, a gryphon may even allow them to ride it.
