SiteInfo Exits Clear
The Griever is the name Squall gives to the lion bared on his favorite ring, necklace, and weapon. Lions are known for their great strength and pride - qualities which Squall admires.
Rinoa wants a ring just like his because she thinks it looks cool, but it's obvious she just wants something that Squall has. She manages to get Zell to borrow it from Squall, and she ends up holding onto it. When Squall finds out she has it, he gets a bit angered, but eventually, as their relationship grows, he lets her keep it.
Since the ring is too big on her, Rinoa wears it on her necklace along with her mother's ring, keeping it close to her heart. The ring is a physical symbol of love from Squall, and she holds on to the ring whenever she is thinking of him.
Here, Rinoa is asking Zell about Squall's ring.
Zell: "Squall's ring? I dunno where he bought it."
Zell manages to get the ring from Squall, who seemed a bit hesitant to lend it.
Zell: "Give me your ring, will ya? I just wanna borrow it for a while. I won't lose it or anything. C'mon, what do you say?"
As the battle between the Gardens begin, Zell sees Rinoa and lets her hold onto the ring, telling her that he'll make a copy of it for her. Rinoa is later knocked off the cliff and is hanging on for dear life. Squall saves her and Rinoa mentions that she couldn't die just yet.
Rinoa: "You know something, I couldn't afford to fall off that cliff and die. I have something very important that belongs to you. I can't die until I give it back to you, right? Zell gave it to me, see? I've been holding onto it."
Much later, as Rinoa is preparing to go to the Sorceress Memorial, she remembers she still has Squall's ring.
Squall: "Rinoa! Don't go!"
