NAME ORIGIN
    Mage is an archaic term referring to a magician. The word is most famously known for the Three Magi who visited the infant Jesus in Bethlehem. The word comes from the Old Persian magus meaning "sorcerer". The chimera was a fire-breathing monster with body parts from many different creatures. Common depictions include a lion's head, a goat's body and a serpent's tail. The horrible beast was defeated by Bellerophon with the help of the flying horse Pegasus. The name chimera comes from the Greek word khimaira which means "she-goat".
