The Chimera of ancient Greece was a thing of immortal make, not human, a creature of many parts, snorting out the breath of the terrible flame of bright fire. Head of a Lion sporting the horns of a bull and a snake for a tail. The emblem emblazoned on these people’s chests who refer to themselves as Chimera, branded to their flesh, embodies the classic image of the mythical beast.
Why call themselves Chimera? It is obvious when you look at one, as they have married their flesh with tech. Becoming more than human and claiming to be more than a cyborg. Implants in their skulls, padded muscle enhancers, some with outright plasteel rebar supporting their spines and legs and arms. Weapons fashioned out of pulse rifles attached to their mutilated bodies. They have nanobots improving their senses and fighting off sickness. They are part machine, part man, all Chimera.
