    Chimeras were ferocious fire-breathing winged beasts with the heads of a lion, a goat and a dragon. A pack of Chimeras guarded the Life Spring found at the bottom of Deist Cavern, where in ages past the unhatched Wyvern Eggs would rest. Firion and his allies battled the feral beasts and brought the last remaining Wyvern Egg to the Life Spring to fulfill the hope of the ailing Wyvern in Castle Deist.
