Chimera | Greece
“Fire-breathing hybridization of a lion, goat, and snake.”
- The chimera is female. Unless you love Greek mythology and knew that already, some may think the chimera is genderless.
- Offspring of the Chimera are the Sphinx and the Nemeian lion, a huge lion that had an impenetrable hide.
- She was killed by Bellerophan, a hero sent by a King…what a likely story.
- Other classical writers thought the Chimera represented a Lycian volcano.
- If you like constellations, Pegasus and Chimera may have once opposed each other in the stars, but is usually associated with the Capricorn.
