Cicero is a long time friend and student of Fafnear. Adopted by Fafnear at a young age the gryphon was always head strong and looking for a battle. Under Fafnear's care, she became an excellent warrior and a decent mage. In her older age she has come to appreciate the finer points of battle, and not just run in for the thrill of the fight.
Cicero is also an intelligent creature, having a passion for books that Fafnear gave her. She may not be as well read as Maatkae, but she does read when able. This has caused her to become a deadly strategist, one well known for her tactics and maneuvers.
Despite her physical prowess, she is also a capable magic user, something Fafnear tried to get her to master, but forwent it in favor of physical combat.
