The griffin's more likable qualities include nobility, gentleness, and justice. Depicted on ancient stone tombs, griffins are the guardians and protectors of life, and remain loyal in their protection even in the afterlife. Griffins count nobility, vigilance, virtue and strength among their many positive attributes. The griffin is an incredibly strong symbol, and used only when the mightiest gods' attention needs to be captured, and reserved only when the need is greatest. Misused, or invoked for selfish reasons, the griffin brings about gluttony, vengeance, ferocity, and violence.


Unicorns exist to protect forests from intelligent creatures. They dwell deep within their forests, and shun most creatures, only conferring with fey such as pixies, dryads, and sprites, showing themselves only when they have to save their forests. Unicorns are strongly magical creatures, with most of their abilities coming from their horn. Unicorns are attracted to innocence; particularly young maidens. Some young women have even proven themselves to be capable of taming and riding a unicorn as a mount. Only the foolish, however, consider a unicorn to be a dumb animal. It is an intelligent magical beast with vast mystical powers at its disposal.


Centaurs have a tribal social system. Each tribe is organized into related clans, with each clan holding specific tribal responsibilities. They take pride in being self-reliant and unburdened by frivolous possessions, but they have a weakness for jewelry. Most centaurs come across as aloof and humorless. In truth, though rarely wild and carefree, they can be warm and considerate, and do enjoy a good joke or festival. They will honor any debts to other species, especially life-debts. Centaurs are extremely gifted astrologers and fortune tellers, to the point that many suspect that they possess some magical sense of precognition. Many centaurs excel at natural magics, and are said to be able to cure or kill anything with access to the proper plants.


Jinn (Genie) in Arabic mythology, a supernatural spirit below the level of angels and devils. Ghūl (treacherous spirits of changing shape), ʿifrīt (diabolic, evil spirits), and siʿlā (treacherous spirits of invariable form) constitute classes of jinn. Jinn are beings of flame or air who are capable of assuming human or animal form and are said to dwell in all conceivable inanimate objects—stones, trees, ruins—underneath the earth, in the air, and in fire. They possess the bodily needs of human beings and can even be killed, but they are free from all physical restraints. Jinn delight in punishing humans for any harm done them, intentionally or unintentionally, and are said to be responsible for many diseases and all kinds of accidents; however, those human beings knowing the proper magical procedure can exploit the jinn to their advantage.
