This young gryphon seems to be covered in icy blue flames, its silver feathers radiating cold. It is already beginning to copy its elders, taking small hops and extending its wings, flying short distances. Seeming to be always hungry, it makes screeching sounds when approached too quickly when feeding. This youngling loves winter, skating on Lake Lakira as soon as it has frozen over and spending all day outside. Soon it begins to feed itself, leaving and returning when sated. This creature has its first tail feathers and small talons, and will one day become a fierce predator.
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.
