Originally the Vedan military term for a vanguard of gryphon riders (from the Marchelan Galeph), the term later became synonymous with the Hargennes line of Kings of both the Marcelline City-State of Vede and the United Island States of the Gryphon. In the later years of the empire, rulers of these nations were referred to as "The Graff Kings".

The word has also been used to refer to all of the following things: the nation of the Gryphon Kings, the King himself, the army of the UISG, the heraldry of the King's family, and Gryphons in military service. "Graff Vedan" is a colloquial term referring to Mannish peoples of Vedan descent who came to inhabit the area formerly known as the Gryphon States.
