Khimaira (Category).jpg
Travelers to Halvung and Hediva Isle have brought back with them strange tales of a hideous beast roaming the volcanic terrain. However, the differing reports have Imperial schoolmen scratching their heads in disbelief. Some adventurers speak of the twisted horn of a giant ram, while others the golden mane of a lion. Still others speak of a pair of undersized bat-like wings or a spiked reptilian tail imbued with deadly venom. One crazed old man even mumbled of a deep violet hide, not unlike that of the dreaded behemoth.

Until more information can be gathered on the aberration, the Empire has bestowed upon it the name Khimaira, and is actively searching for mercenaries who might be willing to hunt down this elusive beast.

The Khrysokhimaira is an aberrent creature born of foulest magicks, the chaotic appearance of which confounds even the seasoned scholars and laymen alike. With a moniker that literally means "golden khimaira", however, it's hide can be easily distinguished from other Khimaira. It's immense bulk is an oft-seen but as yet unexplained phenomenon in post-cataclysm Abyssean fauna. While folk hold the the beast in equal parts trepidation and mystique, logic would doubtless see the former prevail in the unsavory event of confrontation.
