Griffons are powerful, majestic creatures with the characteristics of both lions and eagles. From nose to tail, an adult griffon can measure as much as 8 feet. Neither males nor females are endowed with a mane. A pair of broad, golden wings emerge from the creature's back and span 25 feet or more. A griffon weighs about 500 pounds.

A griffon cannot speak, but understands Common.

Combat

Griffons prefer to pounce on their prey, either diving to the attack or leaping from above.

Pounce (Ex): If a griffon dives upon or charges a foe, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.

Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +8 melee, damage 1d6+2.

Skills: Griffons have a +4 racial bonus on Jump and Spot checks.

Training A Griffon

Although intelligent, a griffon requires training before it can bear a rider in combat. To be trained, a griffon must have a friendly attitude toward the trainer (this can be achieved through a successful Diplomacy check). Training a friendly griffon requires six weeks of work and a DC 25 Handle Animal check. Riding a griffon requires an exotic saddle. A griffon can fight while carrying a rider, but the rider cannot also attack unless he or she succeeds on a Ride check.

Griffon eggs are worth 3,500 gp apiece on the open market, while young are worth 7,000 gp each. Professional trainers charge 1,500 gp to rear or train a griffon.

Carrying Capacity: A light load for a griffon is up to 300 pounds; a medium load, 301-600 pounds; and a heavy load, 601-900 pounds.

Kiven tries to hide it but shows a hint of fear as he is about to be branded. The elf puts his head down and looks away from the others as the brand is pressed to searing flesh but eventually he lets out one short, loud cry, gasping for air. As the task is finished and they release his other arm the proud ex-noble wipes his face clean of any evidence that he did not handle this well. He stands tall and tries not to wince has they drag him from the room.

Once in their cell, Kiven reacts little to Eya's mention of his brother being a real ass, but shoots her a very quick and serious look when she offers to assist in killing Tyris. Within a fraction of a second he is back to his previous demeanor and mutters "I will take care of HIM."

Regarding the brand, Kiven acknowledges Eya's words. "Yes, Forsaken we are. It matters not, and I will relish it. Today I am free of the shackles; the shackles of my family, of expectations, of law, of weakness. There is just one pair yet to shed." At that he looks at his elaborate chains and gauntlets. "I did my part, fiend, and you still owe me what you promised. You can start by contributing to my escape."

To Jesla's doubts that the men here can contribute at all, the self proclaimed Prince only reacts with a small smirk. Respar at least receives a nod to his suggestion of being a bit more tactical and cautious in their escape.
