Everything that follows is original 2005 commentary except where noted “–RN 2012″:
I started disliking the Gryphon at this point. I can see how she got so callous, though. Look at what humans did to the world. She watches them come and go like vermin, but she lives on. Why should she care? What’s the point? Screw the humans!
It shows that we often become what we hate. In the case of the Gryphon, she became as disgusting as the people she once hated.
