The three-headed chimera is a lover of volcanic regions. It breathes flame in the manner of a dragon from its goat-like head and attacks with venom from its snake-like one. Its lion-like head has a vicious bite. At times, the chimera’s three heads do not see eye to eye, both literrally and metaphorically.
