It is born of magic, Sire, and it can only be killed by magic
Gaius[src]

A Griffin is a creature that has the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. They can only be born of magic, and can only be killed by magic. Any nonmagical weapon that strikes them- even steel- will shatter off their skin and feathers, given they are invincible to them.

HistoryEdit

One particular Griffin attacked Camelot during the reign of Uther Pendragon, who sent his son and a battalion of knights to attempt to kill it. They failed, but the griffin was later killed when Lancelot charged at it with a lance imbued with magic by Merlin. Prior to this attack, the griffin was believed to exist only in myth. Information on griffins was obtained by Camelot's court physician Gaius in the castle library (Lancelot).

In Merlin's rant at Gaius about his daily routine since arriving in Camelot, Merlin mentioned how he fought the Griffin (The Once and Future Queen).
