Chimera Beast Is a powerful ancient Demon Beast said to live in the Gourmet World and is considered to be an Endangered Species due to the lack of proper genetic traits due to their unusual features and lack of genetic comparability to reproduce with others of their species more than once. It is also seen to have been around the ancient times as well due to many different fossils found today. It is said that this beast is known for it's similarities with that of the Asura Tiger, making it possible that the species derived from these ancient creatures.
The Chimera Beasts are usually very Colossal in size, a fully grown adult reaching a length of 81 metres and 32 metres in height. The Chimera Beast's appearance is nightmare inducing to say the least. The Beasts look reminiscent to that of an oversized tiger crossed with the mythical Cerberus, the hell dog of the underworld in Greek Mythology. It's notable features include it's four very muscular legs with black claws attached, an oversized tail on it's rear and a startling head with three faces attached side to side to form an inter-connected face. In fact, the faces are so connected that they all share the same mouth, though they all have their own full sets of teeth - including two Sabre-teeth. The Beast even has interconnected eyes, leading to a big debate over whether the monster has six eyes or four. The Chimera Beasts all have yellow fur on their underbelly, arms, legs and tail; whilst their manes are coloured a paler yellow. The spiky armour on it's back is a royal purple, along with the patch of hair on it's head. It's teeth are usually white, however the adults tend to have white teeth with red stains - a sign of all of the prey that has fallen to it's might. The trend is that the older the Chimera Beast is, the more stains of red there are in it's teeth. However, it can cause confusion between older Beasts and Beasts that have just eaten, most professional Gourmet Hunters can tell the difference.
Back when there was many of them, most Chimera Beasts were seen to have been territorial of their specific part of the Gourmet World, often only venturing out in order to bring back food for their families and fellow beasts. Often at times, any outside creature found going through their territory, no matter how big or small, would cause the beasts to go rabid, and often result in them being killed by the Chimera's without a single thought. It has also been seen that the beasts often considered themselves to be superior to any other form of creature in the Gourmet World, even often at times attempting to battle creatures like the Eight Kings or the Nitro without fear. Even now with only a few of the numbers left, they still consider themselves to be superior beings, often staying within their ancestral territory, and fighting anything or anyone that might threaten their homes.
