griffin=griffon=grypfhon [mythology] - γρυπαετός (gripaetos). In an another context it could mean: strict supervisor, but I think your context is animal
When talking about animal: group of = αγέλη (ageli) - when talking about birds/insect: group of = σμήνος (sminos). In general: group of = ομάδα (omada)
multiple = πολλαπλός,-ή,-ό (polaplos)
human/animal relationship = σχέση ανθρώπου/ζώου

Pronounced: Gr`eepas
This refers to the mythological animal.
Now, metaphorically, it also means "Κέρβερος" (K`erveros) = a wakeful, very stern guard

νεοελθών, "άρτι αφιχθείς"

I agree with the above answers but I also found that griffin in Eastern countries means "the newly comer"
