Gryphons from Fourth wing - Empyrean Series by Rebecca Yarros

Seven gryphons together make for a full drift.

Physical Appearance

Gryphons are half lion, half mount creatures with dark brown feathers. They are all about the beak and claws.

The gryphons are about a foot taller than Xaden, and have razor-sharp beaks.


Gryphons, just like dragons, can also channel powers.


Gryphon’s humans are called flyers and they wear brown leathers.


Gryphons are not very strong at high altitudes.Unlike dragons, however, gryphons can’t power the wards that make all other magic but their own impossible.


The first known gryphon attack occurred in 1 AU (after unification).

Share that Venin and Wyvern are real!
