Gryphons--also spelled griffin and griffon--are very popular in heraldry (medieval-style banners and shields). As a half-eagle and half-lion, they're known as being very majestic, king of both beasts and birds. In mythology--and in Unintended Guardian--they guard priceless treasure. :) (http://jamigold.com/unintended-guardian/)

My inspiration for Kala's "look" in Unintended Guardian was Japanese model/actress Yuri Ebihara. (http://jamigold.com/unintended-guardian/)

Not sure what a gryphon is? Here's a great image from DeviantArt showing their half-eagle / half-lion form. In Unintended Guardian, Griff stays in his human form most of the time (he's much sexier that way ;) ). (http://jamigold.com/unintended-guardian/)

Quote from Griff of Unintended Guardian: This was home. This was perfection. This was everything he'd never known he wanted.

Most gryphons are drawn in the tawny colors of a lion, but Griff's colors in Unintended Guardian are closer to this. :) (http://jamigold.com/unintended-guardian/)

To anyone who's read Unintended Guardian, it probably won't come as a surprise that my inspiration for Griff's "look" was Thor himself. :) (http://jamigold.com/unintended-guardian/)

Quote from Griff of Unintended Guardian: The kiss wove between gentle and frenzied, liquid and greedy, silken and primal, and he sucked every second of bliss he could from the forbidden pleasure.
