Griffin was a middle aged Judge with short hair and a well built stature, he was blind in his right eye wearing an eyepatch in placement.
Griffin was a stern but fair Judge, he was on good terms with Dredd and fought alongside him at a few points. He was considerd to be one of the fairest of the Chief-Judges amongst the populace.
Griffin, along with the other tutor-judges, was not influenced by Chief Judge Cal's control methods and they soon formed the core of the resistance to the mad chief.
Following Cal's death Griffin succeeded him as chief Judge, and proved to an effective leader, however in the early days of the Apocalypse war he was kidnapped by the East Meg government and brainwashed into their way of thinking, and so Dredd is forced to assasinate him.
