King Gryph ruled over the Gryphs with a fair but iron hand. It was under his leadership that the Gryphs had allied themselves with the Snow Nymphs against the Ice Orcs. During the Cataclysm, King Gryph was captured by Thork and his Ice Orcs. Without a leader, the Gryphs became chaotic and violent.
Connor managed to free King Gryph, who was then able to regain control of his followers.
King Gryph is a character in King's Quest: Mask of Eternity.
