I finally remembered some old material related to the Bruce Lee and Wing Chun pieces. Mark Hedden's Io Chess (1999) contains the Griffin and its promoted form - the Hippogriff. He also has the Spider (the diagonal equivalent of the Griffin) and its promoted form - the Tarantula. See the Piececlopedia article on the 'Duke' for more background material.
