okay, guys. so we dont have gryphons being all funky and stuff, here are some rules on them:

××you can only have three at one time, that oncludes babies. i will make a bio adoption board so you can put people that you dont want or cant keep there and others can have them

××ask me before you make one, so i can keep track of how many you have

××gryphons originate from eight breeds: mountain, sea, sky, forest, desert, swamp, shrub. and the imperials. here are the characteristics of each of the breeds:

***Mountain: lots of fur/feathers, very very large, wingspan is smaller (easier navigation through blizzards and such)
***Sea: not too much fur/ feathers, small petite body, large wingspan (to traverse sudden winds and waves)
***Sky: can either have alot of fur/feathers or not that much, medium sized bodies, wingspan is very large (they spend the majority of their life in the sky)
***Forest: can either have alot of fur/feathers or not that much, large muscled bodies, small wingspan (for weaving in between trees and vines)
***Desert: barely any fur/feathers, very very large bodies(just a bit smaller than the mountain breed), wingspan is any but it must be very muscled (they must have to fly for weeks on end to find food and water in the desert)
***Swamp: not that much fur/ feathers, very small bodies (for agility), long, thin wings (for speed and quickness so they can get away from many on the hidden dangers of the swamp)
***Shrub: doesnt matter how much fur/ feathers, extremely small bodies (so they can live in bushes and such) wingspan doesnt really matter
*** Imperials: the royals of the gryphon world, but they are no longer on the earth. lots and lots of feathers. humongous bodies (they are the largest breed) wingspan doesnt matter

××gryphons come from two elements, earth and air. therefore they can control one of these.

××imperials will be extremely had to have, they are supposed to be extinct and are able to harness both elements

××only imperials are able to act territorial or even own land, if they are not imperials and are acting as such, there will be consequences

×× gryphon bios are to be EXTREMELY detailed.

×× bios must have pictures

×× can only have one element

×× gryphons must be of one of the breeds listed, unless you are a child of two different breeds, but your first one must be of one breed only

(((((((more might be coming soon)))))))

here is an example. DONT USE, HE IS MY CHARRIE!!:



Name: Ensis

Breed: Forest Gryphon

Age: 3 ( VERY young in gryphon years. but they reach maturity at the end of their first year)

Gender: Male

Color: Sapphire

Eye Color: tawny and gold

Markings: none

Personality: Ensis is noble and brave. he stands for what is right but isnt exactly peaceful. he is loud and boastful, the regular for a gryphon of his age

Height:
Ensis is the size of one and a half men. so about ten feet tall to the top of the head.

Length:
not counting the tail, Ensis is about twelve feet long

Wing Span:
the average wingspan for creatures with large weights to be at least doube the body length. but Ensis is a shortwinged breed designed for manuevering through tight spaces quickly and agiley. so where the normal, open spaced breed of gryphon would have a wingspan of about twenty or so feet, Ensis' is only fifteen.

Other:
Being a mixed creature of earth and wind, Gryphons are able to control only one of those elements, his element is Air, even though he has lived in forests and jungles for the whole of his short life. gryphons use the elements in the ancient and traditional way of movement. with a single movement (not thought, but movement) Ensis would be able to do somthing to the air, what would depend on which movement he would make.

history of gryphons:

at the beginning of time, the moon and sun had just created earth. it was raw and uninhabited with nothing other than plants. so the moon made the animals of night and sky, the sun made creatures of day and earth. the moon and sun realised that all of the creatures would cause chaos if not looked after. so, they discussed this problem and decided to make a creature made of both of their traits. they mixed part of their spirits into the new creature. when finished, the being had the head and front legs of a bird with the tail and back legs of a land animal with wings sprouting from its' shoulders. the creature was extremely large and had long, beautiful feathers. it had a noble build and was still filled with honesty and respect for all other things. the moon and sun agreed on calling the creature a gryphon. but, here they ran into another problem, there were just so many of the creatures on the newborn planet of earth that the one gryphon couldnt care and watch over all of them. so the sun and moon created more of the beautiful and magnificent creatures. in the end, there were fifty of the gryphons and they stood below the sky, looking up at the two orbs of light. the gentle moon thought for some time and brightened with happiness at a new idea.
"dear Sun" she cooed in her soft voice "we both know that the gryphons are capable of governing the planet by themselves, but they shouldnt have too muchstress on their shoulders, let us create different breeds to specialize in certain lands and animals."
the sun nodded, contemplating. finally he said in a boming voice "it shall be done"
and they set to work creating the new breeds.

in the end, there were seven more breeds:
mountain, sea, sky, forest, desert, swamp, and shrub. they were each made for a certain place on earth and for certain duties. the moon looked upon the first gryphons and noted that they could look over everything and deserved a good title. she turned to the sun and said
"what should we name them?"
the sun answered without hesitation "Imperials" he said the moon nodded and looked at the creations. then, the moon and sun gifted the imperials with power over the earth and sky. they then gave each of the other breeds one of these elements to help govern the earth. the sun then spread his rays wide and said
"be as you were made to be, little ones" the gryphons nodded obediantly and flew to where they were meant to be.

The vanishing of imperials:
the world was ravaged by violence and war. the mon and sun could not stand it and bade the imperials to vanish. they obeyed and were gone. no one knows truly what happened except the moon and sun.


a note on clans:
when the breeds started to become more populous, they started separating. each clan -or house- was a very tightly knit family or group of gryphons of the same breed. there could be up to more than 100 gryphons in one clan. when introducing themselves, a gryphon would say their name, their breed, and then their clan or house name. like this for example:

I bowed my head and laid back my plumage in the sign or respect "i am Ensis, a forest gryphon of the house of Karn."
the clan name and the house name are the same. when a gryphon takes a mate, the other gryphon is admitted into the mates' clan or house, and their name changes from their birth clan to the new house of their mate.
