He's original, the creation of our very own Kris Overstreet. I went fishing for Galaxy House residents, and Kris provided him free of charge. :)

You're welcome.

Yes. Last job I had, I worked from 4 PM to 2 AM, tended to get up at 1500 and sack out at about 0600. The habit's stayed with me.

   Remember, that this is the person who introduced the Fanfiction world at large to the Terms Gweep, Gweeping, and the Gweeping hour...

I wish I could work your hour's, Gryph... They're the ones my body drifts to on its own accord; sadly, I have to work 'normal' sorts of hours.

And of Course Mac's coffee can be used either way... For the longest time a charecter in a round robin story had this giant, quart sized yellow coffee mug emblazoned with the Penzoil logo and the claim "Mental Motor Oil." Wish I could find one like that for Real Life.

Yes, I work about the same hours (maybe a little later). At least you don't have the joy of sleeping in hotel beds... and driving a different car every week (anything from a Ford Mustang to a minivan)... and having to switch hotels in the middle of the day...

Next week promises to be especially fun. Monday morning I fly to Binghampton, NY. I work Monday and Tuesday nights (switching hotels Tuesday), have Wednesday off (thank God), fly to Birmingham, Alabama Thursday morning, work that night, and fly back home to Pittsburgh Friday evening.

Hey, Gryph? How'd you like to work this job? (semi-serious)

Oh well. At least this isn't like January, where I was putting 1500 miles a week on my car...

(Sorry about the rant, but I really needed to get this off my chest.)

Being that a Griffon is a ground-based battlemech weighing on the order of ninety tons, there should be no reason for anyone named after it to want to fly...

55, actually, and it does have jump jets. (No "o", though.)

A Griffin Land-Air 'Mech would be a really odd sight in transitional or fighter mode, though. (I suspect you'd have to cheat on the transforms a la Getter Robo. :)

As Gryph says, he's an original character of my creation. Any other questions?

Yes. What species is he? I missed it, if it was mentioned. I though he was Tenctonese, given the name. But would an LA-Tenctonese live in Galaxy House. Granted, LA's pretty alien, but ....

He's a plain old ordinary space-born human.

All? No. More of them than the ground-born kind? Probably.
