The Gryphon is a Cruiser with amazing mobility, suited for dog-fighting and pest control.
The Gryphon has a large bay door that opens to the inside of the ship. The main bay contains 12 faction-colored passenger chairs that players can sit in. The pilot's seat is rather small and in an elevated area compared to the rest of the seats.
The side ladder leads to the underside, with a small hallway leading to both ends of the ship. Between them, there is the interior, which has a bunk bed and a computer. There is a chair in front of the computer which you can sit in. Various images can be found on the monitor, and lots of notes can be found in or around the garbage bin next to it.
