(Greek Creature) CHIMERA

Also known as CHIMAERA

Monstrous offspring of Typhon and Echidna.

With the head of a lion, body of a goat and the tail of a dragon, CHIMERA was not to be messed with.

She ravaged Lycia and was particularly nasty when vomiting flames but Bellerophon wasn't scared. He mounted Pegasus and killed Chimera with a lead tipped spear which melted when it came into contact with the heat. He killed the Solymnes and a boatload of Amazons too which went right to his head. Delusions of grandeur saw him fly to mount Olympus to take his place among the gods but Zeus wasn't impressed.

See the Bellerophon entry for more details.
