Griffins are mythical creatures in the folklore of Albion that resemble lions with the wings and heads of an eagle. They are never seen in the Fable games since they no longer exist. The only description of them is found with the Griffin Back Tattoo. According to the description, the griffins existed long before the Old Kingdom but they were hunted and killed by humans for unknown reasons, possibly for sport like Dragons. Whether the tale is true or not is unknown.
