Storyboard Text

  • I wonder what I look like. . 
  • Do something, Minor Canon!
  • I love it. .
  • The Griffin   really would like to know what he looks like, since there are no calm waters in the Dreadful Wilds to see his reflection in. 
  • Good  Riddance,   Minor Canon.
  • The Griffin heads towards town,   and the   townspeople notice him.   They are frightened at the sight of him,   so they have the Minor Canon talk to him, and ask him what he wants.
  • You all are cowards!
  • The  Griffin wants to see his statue,  and  after talking to the Minor Canon,  he is able to look at it.  He begins to go stare at it daily,  from morning to night. The Minor Canon is almost like his babysitter,  constantly watching over him, bringing him along while he teaches and visits the sick and poor. 
  • All the   adults  of the town agreed that if the Minor Canon left,  the Griffin would follow.  So, one man of the town convinces him it would be best  for him to leave, so he leaves to stay in the Dreadful Wilds 
  • The Griffin gets upset when he hears they sent the Minor Canon away because they wanted to get rid of him.  He tells them that he is going to go find him, and when the Minor Canon gets back, they must treat him with respect. The Griffin  decides that if he cannot eat the Minor Canon,  who  is honorable, he will eat nothing at all. 
  • The Griffin returns the  Minor Canon, and takes his statue with him. The Minor Canon is given the best treatment.  He gets the best housing, and everyone comes to his  church services.  The Griffin returns to his cave, and dies alone because he refuses to eat, since there is no one as honorable as the Minor Canon.
