The Griffin is a gigantic creature with a eagle's head and front talons and wings, and a lion's back and tail and back paws. It is the symbol of Griffindor house, founded by Godric Griffindor. It can both fly and walk. It is a very powerful creature, and brave, too, so that is why it was selected as symbol for Griffindor House.
