A cross between the Griffin and the horse, which was said to be impossible as the two resented each other. It has all the features of a Griffin but the lower-half is of a horse. It was bred by the Italian Ariosto so that it could be a mount for the Wizard Atlantis. This beast also features on the coat of arms as a heraldic beast.
