CHIMERA

Greek Demonness

Also known as CHIMAERA, KHIMAIRA

Monstrous daughter of TYPHON, ECHIDNA, and some weird and unsavory sex toy.

She is a vicious mix-and-match monster without the match. Part goat, snake and lion, with three heads at the last count, she is a fire-breathing horror who ravaged the living daylights out of her surroundings.

She was killed by BELLEROPHON, a hero, whose boasting of the event led to his downfall.

The word ‘chimera’ has now become a byword for fabulous and fantastic — but utterly mixed-up — ideas.
