A Greek Hybrid



“Fire-breathing hybridization of a lion, goat, and snake.”

Basic Facts:

  • 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.
