Merlin? Whatever you do, you don't say I told you so.
I have no wish to gloat. What's done is done. Here, come and take a look at this. I've realised my mistake.
I've been looking for the creature in the wrong place, the records of all known living things in the kingdom.
Then I thought, what about creatures only recorded in legend? In myth? And I just discovered this.
That is it! That's the monster!
You proved that today.
All I know is it's still out there.
Let's not wait for it. The kingdom has been menaced by this creature for too long. We finish this now.
Sire, if I may? Gaius?
I've been researching this creature, sire. I believe it to be a griffin.
A griffin? What's in a name?
The Griffin is a creature of magic.
I don't have time for this, physician.
It is born of magic, sire, and it can only be killed by magic.
