The following quote is the tag line taken from the Herald's list. I
thought it somewhat apropos.


"The griffin is the king of all the creatures.  Whilst the lion is the
of the beasts and the eagle is the king of the birds, the griffin that
a combination of the best attributes of both these magnificent creatures,
like a good claret, is better than the sum of its constituent parts."
---Stephen Oliver, An Introduction to Heraldry
