A Chimaera is An aggressive magical beast hybrid, native to Greece, that has the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a dragon.
Chimaeras are one of the beasts classified by the Ministry of Magic as XXXXX. Chimaera eggs are Class A Non-Tradeable Materials due to the highly violent nature of the beast. In recorded history, there is only one known case of a wizard killing a chimaera, though that wizard died from exhaustion shortly after their victory. Another notable chimaera incident was when Dai Llewellyn, the famous player of the Caerphilly Catapults, was killed while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece. An escaped Chimaera at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the 1987-1988 school year was missing for over a year, until it was found by a group of students in the Forbidden Forest, who luckily survived the encounter.
