Proposed Canon

A Gwiffon is a non-humanoid flying Unit roughly the shape of a bird. It is fast moving and a capable combatant. They are used by Jillian as mounts.TBFGK 7 TBFGK 9 Gwiffons emit a 'peep!' sound effect.TBFGK 50

Gwiffons take a small penalty to movement when passing through mountains and no penalty when passing through hills.

Gwiffons get squishy when rained on.

It appears that Gwiffons, like Megalogwiffs can capture prisoners. However (probably due to their smaller size) they seem only capable of capturing one or two, as opposed to twenty-five that Queen Jillian's Megalogwiff can carryLIAB Text 43. It should be noted that those shown with two prisoners do not have someone riding them, possibly indicating that weight is another factor in the amount one Gwiffon can carry.

First Appearance



Jillian refers to them as 'gummy beasts',TBFGK 50 referring to the fact that they seem to be one sticky, gelatinous material all the way through.TBFGK 12 This may explain why they get squishy in the rain.

In the first intermission, page 15, Jillian allows her Gwiffons to eat the marrow, hooves and horns from horned sheep carcasses. These feeding habits are a reference to the fact that gelatin is made from the bone marrow of animals.

Interesting Side Notes

When Wanda is summoning Parson, Stanley asks for someone who (among other things) snacks on gwiffons and eats Marbits for breakfast.TBFGK 17:4 Sometimes, Stanley actually gets what he asks for.

Real World Reference

Gwiffons appear to be based on the Marshmallow Peep, a favorite snack food of Parson's.TBFGK 15
