— Jigsaw confronts Griff with his obsession[src]
Griff was a promising college student who earned good grades and had the chance to graduate. However, at one point, he became obsessed with one of his female professors. As she didn't reciprocate his feelings and didn't want to have anything to do with him, he brutally raped her. He was later arrested by Detective David Tapp and sent to prison. After serving his sentence, he was released from jail. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)
Due to his crime, he was eventually targeted by John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After his abduction, Griff was taken to the abandoned Holmes Hotel and shackled to a chair with a bomb attached to it. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)
Michael Tapp's Test
When he woke up again, Griff realized that he had been kidnapped. A recorded message left on an answering machine on a table next to him confronted him with his crimes and his subsequent conviction. It also informed him that the only person who could save his life was a reporter named Michael Tapp, the son of Detective Tapp.
Eventually, Michael made his way to the area where Griff was trapped while facing one of Jigsaw's games on his own. A TV turned on in front of him, and a mechanical ventriloquist puppet appeared on-screen, telling Michael that he was the only one who could save Griff but didn't have much time to do so. Afterward, a 30-second-timer started to count down. Right underneath it was a row of four small combination locks. Before the timer expired, Michael had to bring the four numbers in the right order, starting with the smallest number and concluding with the highest. If he failed to do so, Griff was killed by the bomb attached to his chair. However, if he brought the digits in the right order in time, Griff was freed from his restraints and had to open the next door's combination lock, which would allow him to escape the room before the explosion. The necessary numbers appeared on the same TV screen as the puppet. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)
According to Jigsaw, Griff used to be a promising student, indicating that he was intelligent and diligent. However, his life changed when he became obsessed with one of his professors. His brutal act of raping her when she didn't reciprocate his feelings proved that Griff was, in fact, a ruthless and malicious individual. Furthermore, the sexual assault implied that Griff was unable to deal with experiencing rejection.
- Griff's fate is dependent on the player's choice and doesn't affect the further storyline.
