Tetragamen Chimera #1119

General

Chimera are constructed from mingled magic, dark sorcerers looking to combine creatures in such a way as to gain more power. The apotheosis of these experiments, achieved during the time of the mage wars, was the tetragamen chimera, a seamless combination of a goat, lion, scorpion, and dragon. This creature was designed to be the perfect weapon. Their tails are poisonous, they can breath flame and fly, they can see in the dark, and can run incredibly quickly over any terrain. With the wars long over, they are no longer found in the wild, the magic of nature not enough to fuel the roiling magics that sustain them. Nowadays, being able to create one is said to be a mark of mastery for mages who specialize in research on magical biology, but creation of one requires dedication to training such a powerful creature.

Egg

This egg has different textures on its shell.

Hatchling

Breeding tetragamen chimera is a difficult task. The creature was designed for combat and hunting, and the parents will have no parental instincts. It is up to the magi to care for the hatchling, and to manage its initial destructive instincts. It craves meat, and loves to run. With care, a magi can redirect its fixation to hunt on games of fetch or tag, and can help it burn off aggression with lots of exercise. These creatures do not cuddle, but will eventually learn to seek out their magi for games.

Adult

Successful care of a hatchling, or successful creation and training of a tetragamen chimera, will result in an adult that is fiercely loyal and dedicated to performing whatever task the magi has trained it for. They must be given a task or they will become destructive, and once given a task, the chimera will not stop until it is completed. When used to hunt down dark magi, these creatures are relentless, and very few things can stand in their way. Care must be taken during travel that they do not cause harm to other wildlife, either with their fire breath or with the poison in their tails. However, the one weakness they have that their original dark magi designers overlooked is that they cannot swim. A magi with a chimera companion should have a backup measure if they need to do an underwater search. Some magi have begun considering mixing the tetragamen chimera with a sea-faring creature to make a truly unstoppable hunter.
