The Griffin is a creature who lives beyond the Western Gate.
The Griffin is a creature with the head, wings, and forelegs of an eagle, and the body, hind legs, and tail of a lion. The Griffin met Milton Huxley after he'd accidentally been transported throw the Western Gate in "Good Bye Mr. Cheops". When the sorceress Chontra appeared before it, the Griffin snarled and roared at her, until she snarled back. Which prompted it to leave her be.
- The Griffin is actually from Greek Mythology, not Egyptian.
