The Griffin's curiosity go the best of him and he wanted to know what he looked like.
Where is the Griffin?
As the Griffin left the dreadful wilds and went into town, the townspeople had been terrified once he entered. The Minor Canon was the only one brave enough to make a deal with him.
We would like to offer you a very well prepared meal to satisfy your hunger.
Once the Griffin sees himself above the church and stares at it for days on end. When the towns people figured out that the Griffin wasn't going to leave, they left instead, except for the few that stayed behind.
Yay!! Thank God.
The Minor Canon was sent to the dreadful wilds by the townspeople, they thought that this would make the Griffin follow him to get rid of him for once and for all.
When the Minor Canon was gone the Griffin took over everything in the town. So the towns people offered the Griffin a meal, to satisfy his hunger.
The Minor Canon returned from the dreadful wilds, the towns people rejoyced over this. The town went back to normal, as the Griffin had left and took his statue with him.
