Chimeras, or Chimeric Monsters as named by their creator, are sets of (often) mindless, yet specialized artificial monsters created by Promestein. Unlike typical artificial monsters, these creatures possesses parts of various different monsters attached to a base. They were created under Goddess Ilias's order in fighting against the humans and monsters serving Alice, as well as to maintain the darkness in the world to prevent Alice I (First) from being unsealed. Being specialized in order to deal with various threats, the chimeras have a notable weakness against those of which they do not target, as seen when the Chimera Dryad did not flinch against Alice's Omega Blaze, while Luka was able to defeat it with a bit of effort on his part.
A set of chimeras appear in Remina, preventing anyone, monster and human alike, from entering. This is because they guard a secret laboratory created under Remina.
Chimeras generally fall into three distinct categories: random-type monsters that use a woman or even an angel as the base, beast-based monsters which exhibit different parts around a bestial core, and somewhat mech-based monsters. Notably, the beast-based monsters, when sealed, dissolves into a lot of various parts before its base its revealed, for example the Chimera Beast sheds a lot of loose meat until a live tiger was revealed as its base.
The chimeras specialize in the weaknesses of those who they target, as the Next Dolls have been seen in order to defeat the Four Heavenly Knights with ease at the end of Chapter 2. Promestein also produced artificial Four Spirits to grant her chimera army the power that rivals Granberia's; however curiously only three are seen using the artificial Four Spirits (Knightroid, Assassinroid, and Rapunzel).
The chimeras that appear in Chapter 3 seem to be more intelligent than their older variants and regard themselves as a whole new generation of monsters rather than just one particular facet of the monster race in general.
After the ending of the original trilogy, mechanical chimeras can still repair themselves due to a lot of material being left behind by Promestein.
- In Greek Mythology, Chimera is a hybrid creature consisting of a body of a lion, a goat's head on its back, and a snake head for its tail. The term Chimera also refers to animals having parts of different other animals.
