Richard Gryphon
Affiliation Ultor Corporation
Red Faction
Appears in Red Faction

Richard P. Gryphon is the deputy chief administrator of the Ultor Corporation on Mars when the First Martian Revolution struck.

Gryphon is promoted to his position after the previous Administrator became a subject in the experiments of Ultor's head scientist, Axel Capek, and is quickly intimidated into following his line. Despite his position second in seniority in the Ultor chain-of-command on Mars, he holds little sway over Colonel Masako and most definitely isn't using his power around Capek.

He is glad to give himself up to Parker, a member of the Red Faction rebels, looking for any chance to escape the tricky position he is in, but Parker isn't quite so glad to have him along. After the Battle at the Ultor Waste Processing Facility, Parker hands Gyphon over to Orion for questioning about Capek and the Mutant Plague.
