A World in the Balance
The famed "Golden Gryphon of Galdegfast"
As he was friends with Haggart Grimgut, one can only assume Galivar has been a long time resident of the city of Galdegfast. Until recently, he was a captive of one of the creatures responsible for the darkness that has befallen the city. A small band of adventurers slew his captor and destroyed the dark crystal that was keeping him chained thus returning him to his former glory. Unlike any griffin encountered to date, Galivar seems to have the ability to speak and is fluent in Common and Dwarven at least. In exchange for his rescue, he has agreed to help keep the darkness at bay from his roost in the Grande Menagerie.
