Orindan Pheasant Gryphon #1039

General

Not much is known about the ancestors of orindan pheasant gryphons. While today they are found across the world as companions to magi, they are believed to have originated in Silva Forest near the foothills of the Alasre mountain range. They are poor fliers but are very fleet-footed and make excellent messengers in places such as the Keep or a smaller city, particularly among individuals who are allergic to pugeons and other dogs. Ambassadors from the Keep recently presented several pairs to the governments of Triathe, Ageti and Somni for use as such messengers.

Long delicate feathers drift from a crack in this egg.

Hatchling

The last days of autumn are approaching, and there is much work to be done before the first heavy frosts. Today you are assisting in the Keep's gardens, helping to prepare them for the coming winter. As you help to rake leaves from the garden paths, your hatchling watches intently, clearly hoping for a snack. Young orindan pheasant gryphons are not capable of flight but quick reflexes and natural foraging ability have earned it a healthy meal of the last blackberries as well as a few plump grubs. When nothing is found beneath the fallen leaves, your hatchling chirps in disappointment before darting off to see if any of your fellow garden helpers has had better luck.

Adult

A fully grown orindan pheasant gryphon is a splendid sight. They are one of the smaller gryphon species, about the size of a large cat, and the males in particular are known for the brilliant colors of their feathers. Females are slightly smaller and while they lack the rich colors of the males, their feathers gleam with rich browns and warm golds. Orindan pheasant gryphons mate for life and while it is best to keep mated pairs together, they do not suffer unduly if separated. This has lead to a tradition among Synaran merchants of gifting a newly wedded couple a pair of pheasant gryphons as a token of love when one partner is not present.
