The Knights of the Wing
Moth is somewhat of a legend among most gryphons. He was a warrior and a father.
He was born a runt, small and weak – unlike most gryphons, his mother Silken Paw, did not abandon the young gryphlet. He was teased relentlessly through his youth but, upon taking the Coming of Age Flight, Moth was accepted a full male worthy of honor and respect.
However tensions were running high between the Talon-Padfoot clan and the Feather clan. But in defiance of his mother, Moth fell in love and mated with a Feather, Nina. However on their Mating Flight night, Moth and Nina were ambushed by members of Nina’s clan. Both were knocked out and Nina was taken back to her clans territory. Legends say when Moth woke from being knocked out, he flew into a rage and flew straight into enemy territory to find his mate. When he was overwhelmed by Feather warriors and subdued, Nina escaped her own capture by her clansmen to come to Moths aid.
The news of Moth’s capture rallied Moth’s clan who came in full force to battle with the Feather clan. But as Moth and Nina worked to defend each other from not only their own clans men but other clans men the battle came to a stand still. Moth spoke words of wisdom that moved those near by. The war was ended before it truly had began and many lives were saved.
