The Chimera *for darkwolf333's contest* by Dementor


Name: Chimera
Gender: female
Race: Lioness, Serpent, Eagle
Age: Unknown
Height: 20ft (roughly)

Story of Creation: The wizard finished drawing the summoning circle and backed up to study it. "They said I was a fool and couldn't do anything, but i'll show them. I'll summon a beast so great that they'll have no choice but to respect me or they will feel the wrath of my chimera!" he cackled as he pulled a pouch of powder out and dusted the circle with it. He began to chant an ancient spell and the circle began to glow red. The ground began to shake and crack open. A huge paw with large black claws shot from the crevice and gripped the earth in an attempt to pull itself out of the darkness. A lion's head emerged first, its reddish mane blowing wildly from the steam emitting from the core of the earth. It bared its teeth and let out a ferocious snarl, teeth gleaming and eyes shining red. Second to take view was a head of black feathers. The head stretched out and let out a shriek of freedom from its beak. Finally a long green serpent slithered out hissing and spitting venom. The creature was all the way out now and the earth closed quickly, creating a large earthquake. Eyes wide and mouth open the wizard stared in horror and amazement as the chimera shook the loose dirt from its fur. It reared on its hind legs and the lion let out another ferocious roar as large black dragon like wings unfolded from its back and spread to full length. The eagle let out a fierce shriek and the serpent hissed all in response to the lion's roar. The wizard smiled devilishly as he gazed upon his creation. "Now they will all fear me and my great chimera!"

Ok wow . . . I'm sorry if the story is weird. I made it up on the spot. ^^;;; This particular chimera is derived from the game Gauntlet: Dark Legacy. I know the real chimera is a lioness with a goat on the middle of her back and a snake for her talk and the front end of her body is a lion and the back end is a goat but I didn't want to do that. This is obviously for darkwolf333's contest where I had to either do a hybrid animal or one in a lab. I chose the hybrid because it's more fun. Hope you like it darkwolf333 and i hope a lot of other people like it as well. Tell me if there's anything weird. Oh and I know it's a lioness and she has a mane like a lion. That's just how the myth is. ^~

EDIT: I got 3rd. ^^

Comment if you'd like, they will be appreciated. ^_^

DementorOk did you not read all the way through the description? In the myth for some reason the lion has a mane even though it's a lioness. I know it's weird. Thanks for the comment though. ^~

KennethKerrI thought the snake was suposed to be the tail of the chimera?

DementorI swear nobody reads my descriptions . . . >.< I explained that this chimera was derived from the video game Gauntlet: Dark Legacy. I even explained that I know the real chimera has a lion head in front, goat head in the middle, and snake for a tail but I didn't do that one.
