Unusual Griffon (AC 3; MV 12”/18”; HD 7+7; hp 40; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite; D 1-6/1-6/2-12; SA Charm gaze; XP 1050)
The griffon has the body of a tiger instead of a lion, and the head, wings, and fore legs of a huge raven, not an eagle. In addition to its normal attacks, it can attempt to charm with its gaze, as a vampire. Victims must save at -2 vs this powerful charm spell and will be affected for the duration of the encounter, should they succumb to its effect. It has average intelligence and can speak the language of sphinxes, though it does not need to speak to command charmed victims.
