Griffin Analysis[edit]

Female. Larvae in her wounds have already hatched. Been dead at least a week. other griffin must be a male

Wounds: Deep cuts over the whole body. Not a drop of blood on the beak or claws. Didn't defend herself. Crept up on her while she slept.

Age: Beak tip's worn, gray hairs in the coat - ten, twelve years old. Griffins pair off for life when young. Male must be about the same age.

Type: Thick shaft, dense barbs - a Royal Griffin

Explains why the male I ran into was so aggressive. Hunted the Nilfgaardians down here in the forest first, then started prowling the area. Done all I could. Should talk to Vesemir.
