With the head, wings and talons of a giant bird of prey and the body of a lion, Griffons appear to be creatures born from the mutating power of Chaos. They are voracious predators, flying out for miles to hunt from their mountain lairs. The cry of a Griffon is often enough to send enemies running. For the Griffon, this is an ideal situation as it prefers its meals on the run, and alive. Despite this, they possess a noble temperament which allows them to be trained as mounts. Many are the tales of entire regiments being broken by a Runefang-weilding Elector Count swooping in to attack while astride his Griffon.
The Griffon is a sacred symbol in the Empire which appears frequently adorning temples dedicated to Sigmar. It is no coincidence that the Order of the Griffon was so named. Karl Franz himself enters battle on the back of Deathclaw, his personal Griffon mount.

Griffons are odd-looking beasts, though their appearance makes them no less deadly to their foes. They possess the head, wings and forelegs of a powerful raptor (hawk/eagle), melded onto the rear legs and torso of a lion. Whatever accident or mutation led to their creation has long since been forgotten.
