A calm and stoic half-elf, this monk is one from a reclusive community of monks that worship Heironius in the mountains north of Zengis. After a wierd series of dreams in which he saw himself on a flight of stairs, accepting a ring set with backward-pointing horns, he has felt drawn to Firetop and Undermountain strongly enough to leave his cloisters.
Trained in the martial arts of his order, he is still young and inexperienced in combat, although his quiet demeanour masks a burning desire to find the truth of his dreams.
He has travelled with Garrett on occasion, and their aquaintance was used by a group of Talons, one of whom masqueraded as the monk to lure the Tiefling into an ambush. Griffa himself has not been seen since this occasion, and it may be that the Talons have done away with him in order to impersonate him.
