Snickers was originally an enemy of the party, a conflict that came about mainly because the necromancer in the party looked nice and tasty and the Snickers was hungry. However, after managing to fight him into unconsciousness, the party druid and ranger decided that it was time to do something other than kill for a change and trained him over the course of a few weeks. A few nips from his beak and a lot of fish later, the hippogriff was fully trained.
And that’s where it gets interesting.
He was always a communal mount (as much as it pains me to say those words in conjunction) until, one day, the ranger became a turncoat after a complex series of events, jumping onto the horse-eagle and winging into the sky!
Yeah. The grand theft auto of D&D.
