The Dryphon reminds most of a large, scaled griffon.  It is larger than a normal griffon and has a scaled belly running all the way to the end of its tail.  Its front claws are that of a dragon, not an eagle.  The Dryphon ranges from dark brown in color to a deep red.  Its beak is golden yellow and its scales are a similar color to its feathers.  The tail of a Dryphon is longer than a griffon’s tail.

 

A Dryphon spends much of its time hunting.  It is a large creature that is often in flight and requires a great deal of food to keep it going.  When not hunting, the Dryphon is sleeping, mating, or taking care of its young.

 

Combat

Dryphons will hunt for pleasure and out of necessity.  They hunt anything smaller than they are.  They always hunt alone, flying and searching for a target.  When one is located, the Dryphon quickly moves in for the kill.  It will use its fiery breath quickly in an attempt to scare the prey and possibly kill it.  The Dryphon will make continuous swoops, lunging at its victim will claws.  Only when it feels secure that its prey is severely injured will it land and finish the kill.   

           

Breath Weapon (Su):  Cone of fire, 50 ft., every 4 rounds; damage 5d6, Reflex half DC 20.  Dryphons can use their breath weapon while biting. 

           

Fire Subtype:  Fire immunity, double damage from cold except on a successful save.

           

Skills: Dryphons receive a +8 racial bonus to Spot skill checks.
