The Vanhar are a breed of Gryfons living in Winderost who dwell in the Vanheim Shore.
As the Vanir are descended from the Vanhar, the two share similarities with each other. They both feed off fish and unlike the other gryfon species, can listen to the non-gryfons better. They don't have a monarchy, and are instead ruled by a court of priests and priestesses.
- The Vanir are descended from them.
