The Chimera ( / k ɪ ˈ m ɪər ə / or / k aɪ ˈ m ɪər ə / , also Chimaera ( Chimæra ); Greek : Χίμαιρα , Chímaira "she-goat") was, according to Greek mythology , a monstrous fire-breathing hybrid creature of Lycia in Asia Minor , composed of the parts of more than one animal. It is usually depicted as a lion , with the head of a goat arising from its back, and a tail that might end with a snake 's head, [1] and was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra .

The term chimera has come to describe any mythical or fictional animal with parts taken from various animals, or to describe anything composed of very disparate parts, or perceived as wildly imaginative, implausible, or dazzling.

While there are different genealogies , in one version the Chimera mated with her brother Orthrus and was the mother of the Sphinx and the Nemean lion (others have Orthrus and their mother, Echidna, mating; most attribute all to Typhon and Echidna).

In Greek mythology, the Chimera was a fearsome, fire-breathing monster with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a dragon's tail. She terrorized the people of Lycia until their king, Iobates, asked the hero Bellerophon to slay her. Iobates had an ulterior motive; his son-in-law wanted Bellerophon killed and the king was sure the Chimera would do the job. But Bellerophon called in Pegasus, the winged horse, and brought the Chimera down from above. The beast lived on in people's imaginations, and English speakers adopted her name for any similarly grotesque monster, or, later, for anything fanciful.

Latin chimaera , from Greek chimaira she-goat, chimera; akin to Old Norse gymbr yearling ewe, Greek cheimōn winter — more at hibernate

The Harpy is one of a race of creatures with origins in Greek mythology, legend and folklore. They would later go on to gain connections to Roman mythology, legend and folklore. They are usually said to inhabit the islands of the Strophades. Their leader is named Celaeno; their numbers vary, but they are sometimes portrayed as a threesome, the other two being Aello and Ocypete.

They appeared in the story of Jason and the Argonauts, where they were causing King Phineas of Thrace to starve to death by devouring all his food before he had a chance to eat it. In The Aeneid , Aeneas and his followers also land on their island and are similarly unable to eat any of the fat cattle they find there.

Harpies have the heads of women and the bodies of birds with large talons. They may be portrayed with or without human breasts.
