* * *

The naming of the Griffin Kingdom was carefully chosen. My reasoning being that since, on the Official Map of Equestria, a fair number of the place names are puns based on places in the US, and their locations on the continent are roughly equivalent to the locations of the places their based on, then the Griffin Kingdom across the eastern sea would be some reinterpretation of Great Britain. Hence: Loondon, Eagleland. :)

Not mentioned are the kingdoms of Quilbry (Cymru/Wales), Aviaba (Alba/Scotland) and Airjre (Éire/Ireland). Sorry, brits.

Wait- this is a Harry potter reference. London? Has to use an outside object (Baton/Wand) to use Magic.

Weird, I've usually seen griffons portrayed as Equestria's equivalent to Barbarians or Romans. Y'know, the 'Proud Warrior Race' archetype. This is probably the first time I've seen them portrayed as English. I have to say, it's a nice change of pace.

What I love about Loondon, Eagleland, is that it's obviously an expy of London, England.  But Eagleland is a euphemism for America.

Be forewarned: that link goes to TvTropes.

you've done well to keep the terminology in check with pony kind, nice modifying of the city and capital names of the Griffon land

You draw and express garret extremely well, i like him already

And how about naming him Garret Hawke, just for kicks?

I always saw the Griffons as the Europeans. I mean there was that French one and I always assumed Gilda was descended from immigrants since she went to a flight school in Cloudsdale.

Nice job on that one.

Also how dare you divide the United Kingdom.
