Chimera refers to all beings begot of two entities separate in species. Ex. Dragon/Human, Dog/Eagle, Hydra/Sphinx, etc…
Any two species can interbreed through the properties of magic. (however a success is less common than two of a common species)
If the parents are not close enough genealogically the offspring will be of the mothers progeny.
The soul of any such offspring will be an average of the parents souls, rather than one or the other.
- Rarely as with any child the soul may be greater than either parent, but this is not a property unique to Chimera.
Chimera are in effect on their own, they are distinct from both sires, and as such will produce their own Chimeric offspring should they reproduce as well.
