The Griffon Rider (Japanese: グリフォンナイト Griffon Knight) is an advanced flying class debuting in Fire Emblem Awakening. It is one of the branch class change options for the Wyvern Rider, exclusively wielding axes and introducing a completely new flying mount: the griffon. Compared to the alternative option, the Wyvern Lord, the Griffon Rider possesses slightly lower offensive and defensive capabilities, in exchange for slightly greater skill and speed.
