This is my first post here so I think it's best I introduce myself.
My name's Sentinel and I'm an orphaned griffin. I recently settled down in the Forbidden Forest since my previous home was burnt down by a couple of scared teenagers trying to be brave. I've lived in many places in all 7 continents but I find them all too... crowded with fearful magic-less humans. At least with witches and wizards around, I don't have to worry about having my home destroyed in a fit of rage and fear.
I was named Sentinel in honour of what human legend considered our kind to be, a 'protector from evil'. I was raised by a small boy who used to play in the fields since my parents were killed by some 'monster hunters'. I don't remember much about my parents, I only found out that they were killed by some magic-less humans who blamed them for the death of their sheep after the boy who raised me was sent off to war. But it's not all doom and gloom as he always said, I made sure he was still alive... maybe I'll indulge you with a few tales from the war....maybe.
You might see me again but I've got to return to my nest before some foolish centaur tramples it or something like that.
Stay ever vigilant!
