"Majesty and power personified, their devastating charge exemplifying their regal brilliance."
The Drakwald Riders' elite.[1]

The Royal Altdorf Gryphites are the finest of the Drakwald Riders' Inner Circle of cavalrymen.[1]


At their inception, these demigryph-riding veterans numbered over a dozen, but since the scouring of the Beastmen tribes from the Drakwald Road, their numbers have been sorely reduced. When Karl Franz received Alberich von Korden's plea for reinforcements, the Gryphites numbered only three - yet he bade them them join whatever remnants of Volkmar's crusade still lived. Despite their low numbers, the vicious mounts and long lances of these knights give them a distinct advantage over the Undead that plague Sylvania's countryside.[2]

Elite Demigryph Knights, the Gryphites have become known for inflicting terror upon their foes, and are distinguishable on the battlefield by their snow-leopard colouring and blue-tinged armour.[1]
