Gryphon believes himself to be the greatest soldier of his time. His record of success on the battlefield supports his belief. While his results in battle are impressive, he has been known to take unnecessary risks which have endangered his life and the lives of his compatriots. His resiliency, strength, and reflexes are his best assets in the field, and which he attributes his performance to his training and all the “hard work” he has put in.
After serving in the Navy, Gryphon, and his wife Bella, went on to become bounty hunters. Gryphon wanted to go after the most dangerous bounties because they would bring in the biggest reward. He felt that with his talents and Bella’s weapons and equipment, they would be extremely successful. Soon their efforts would earn Gryphon and Bella a sizable fortune, and they quickly gained a reputation as some of the most formidable bounty hunters in the world.
But after Gryphon is tasked with tracking down a man he served alongside during his time with the SEALs, details of his past begin to be revealed. These revelations, which include the origin of his abilities, will cause him to question all he has ever known.
Gryphon also comes to accept that he must prepare himself to stand against a great evil. This force was long thought to have been destroyed, and if it were to re-emerge, it would threaten the entire world once again.
