The Chimera has a tail with a snake's head, and the head of a goat from the spine of a lioness's body. They are focused, intimidating, and often used for blocking those who are of warrior status as recorded in multiple ancient texts. They can be territorial, intensely loyal to their Keeper-only, and like to be in the presence of dark magick, spells and spirits. They are opinionated, quick to speak, can manifest as a single voice, or multiple voices. They are extremely territorial of a location once they feel it is home & will defend it tooth and nail. They are highly enlightened with Spiritual & Astral knowledge, and can bestow this knowledge unto their Keeper in the form of intrinsic knowledge if they desire. They are guardians, and possess influential powers over others, and can utilize spells, magick, and other spirits if need be.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Chimera is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. Chimera do not like bondage, wrap their vessel in something like small chain, thread, yarn, if you want to subdue them. Only use this technique if you feel your they have become becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.
