Fully grown, this chimera is a strange but graceful sight, two different heads emerging seamlessly from the front of a lion. With the courageousness of a lion and the agility and horns of a goat, this beast is a powerful companion. It enjoys spending its time in the forest, hunting for treats to eat. Its diet encompasses grass, leafy plants, and small mammals. It's equally comfortable on steep rocky hills, or flying high above the land. You can comfortably fit on its back, and it is a valuable steed. Magis often have chimeras close when performing difficult experiments. Its innate sense of magic makes it invaluable; its mere presence helps a magi control their powers better, and any spell becomes more potent. Chimeras love to spend their time climbing, and claw marks can be seen on most of the trees around The Keep. You can usually find the chimeras with the manticores, basking away contentedly in the sun.
Such beasts as these come in many shapes and forms, and are the results of magical mingling. Dark sorcerers took it into their own hands to create these creatures, shaping them into powerful companions. The most common chimeras have wings, and two heads, but endless varieties exist. Some of these beings are less pleasant than others, but all are composed of several animals. Twisted together, these new animals hold powers from both races. Born from magic, they have amazing prowess with powers, heightening any spell. They usually reside with their masters, assisting them in their work. Occasionally one can be seen, either on a mission or having decided to make their own way in the world. They get along particularly well with gryphons and manticores, perhaps feeling a common bond in coming from two species. These eggs come into being from their parent's magic, and are granted to those students of magic deemed worthy in the eyes of the chimera. As such, both dark and light magi possess such creatures.
