Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Sorcerers twisted into fell beings by the spiteful magicks of rivals. Though full half of their wit be dissipated by ensorcelment, they still possess great magickal power. Perhaps because of their history, they fear mages greatly, and will travel in packs for strength.

Page 2: Report #A0075 O.P.O.D. Edit

Eat the head of the wise, and his wisdom you shall gain! Like eating food whence to gain nourishment. To determine the truth of this, I have just now eaten a whole chimera head. No effects as yet. On the morrow, we shall see.
-No further reports, poacher no longer at large. Investigation closed, by Imperial Decree.

Etymology Edit

The chimera is a fire-breathing monster, one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna. It is commonly represented with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail in Greek mythology. In modern usage, the term chimera is often taken to mean any sort of hybrid between two or more species.
