Perhaps the most famous hunter in the galaxy, Griffin is a celebrity icon and media darling, though he views the wave of films and comics based on him with disdain at best. His fame is the result of a storied career with many bizarre and dangerous accomplishments, though none as strange or deadly as the current monster threat.
Griffin was born on Io, but his family very quickly accepted a charter with NORDITA , leading him to spend his entire life in the Far Arm. His propensity for hunting the biggest, most bizarre, most dangerous, and violent creatures of the Arm has earned him a fair bit of fame, and numerous pulp movies and serials to his name. He hates much of the media inspired by him, and he's quick to tell all the other hunters what schlock he thinks it is.
Cabot approached Griffin about joining the Planet Tamers while he was hunting an Orion Terrorsaur, a beast whose head Griffin promptly donated to the Laurie-Anne. It can be seen in the opening cinematic for evacuation mode, and a shot of the ship displayed on the loading screens is taken through the mouth of the mounted head.
