Role and personality

The Gryphon appears to be somewhat overbearing and dismissive of the obsessions and dismays of other characters, such as the Mock Turtle's sorrow and the Queen of Hearts' executions, neither of which (according to the Gryphon) have any basis in fact. He speaks with a slightly ungrammatical Cockney-like accent and makes demands of the Mock Turtle, which are obeyed despite the latter creature's implicit objections. In addition, he is prone to making cough-like sounds written as "Hjckrrh!", which seem to have little meaning and may be involuntary.

In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the Gryphon features with the Mock Turtle in Chapter 9, "The Mock Turtle's Story", Chapter 10, "The Lobster Quadrille", and briefly at the start of Chapter 11, "Who Stole the Tarts?". The Gryphon was ordered by the Queen to take Alice to meet the Mock Turtle; this he did, and stayed with them for a long time, demanding that the Mock Turtle tell its history, as well as several poems. The two creatures go on to explain certain features of their world which are apparently nonsense to Alice, before Alice and the Gryphon are summoned to a criminal trial, leaving the Mock Turtle behind.

Video games

  • Gryphon appeared in the video game American McGee's Alice, voiced by Andrew Chaikin. Gryphon is portrayed as mature and noble creature that tried to help Alice and is killed by the Jabberwocky. He is later revived after ALice defeated the Queen of Hearts.
  • Gryphon appeared in the Sunsoft's 2006 mobile game Alice's Warped Wonderland (歪みの国のアリス, Yugami no kuni no Arisu, Alice in Distortion World). Depending on the player's choice, Gryphon is found in the forest by the Queen of Hearts' castle and helps Ariko (the "Alice" of the game) by giving her a ride on his back. In the game, the snake tail is Gryphon's "head" while the avian head is his rear. While the eagle head is animalistic, the snake tail is capable of speech and talks to Ariko in a fatherly manner.[1][2]


  • In the anime and manga series Pandora Hearts, Gryphon is a chain for Xai Vessalius who is also similar to the Gryphon in the book.
