Hippogriffs were born of the mating of a male griffin and a mare. Flying creatures such as Hippogriffs command an extremely high price if they were put on the market. As such, only few people could afford them.
These magical beasts had the front half of a griffin and the hind quarters of a horse.
Because of their mixed blood, Hippogriffs were easier to rear and train than griffins, and they were very popular as flying mounts.
- Hippogriffs are used by the Royal Air Guard of the Imperial Army as air mounts.
- The word Hippogriff is derived from the Greek word "hippos" meaning "horse" and the magical creature known as the griffin. In this case, it has the body of a horse as opposed to a lion, but keeps the head of an eagle.
