We don't seem to have anyone playing a Chimera yet. I'd be interested in filling that particular niche, but I'm not sure I'm clear on their nature. In mythology/popular culture, chimeras can be any sort of 'hybrid' combining attributes of two or more creatures...but I would assume you're looking for something more toward the 'person-like' end of the spectrum than the 'beast-like' end for PCs. Can you give me a bit more info on what you're looking for?

I don't think it's quite as long as that, but it's not far off. It was my make the half dragon template work damnit phase. Fun times.

I don't see him as much of a negotiator, either...his attendance would more likely be along the lines of 'keep an eye on everyone' and 'it's gonna be funny when they all start arguing'. The bear-dog would definitely catch his interest, as well as figuring out why it was so close to Hominids...hopefully before the humans begin asking too many questions (even if he has to make up a reason).

Thaco: Certainly, I'm glad you asked. I apologize for the confusion on them as they are indeed a culmination of whatever. This culmination can be two or more creatures with dominant humanoid traits, and their appearance can be anything from almost human to not human at all (hominid/fey-ish to full-on animal). Consider it the place where undead and any man-beast combinations are found. Some mainstream examples would be any undead, any lycanthrope, minotaur, centaur, half-man/half-beast, or whatever fits the players fancy. Just confirm the choices of the Chimera's composition with me, so we can get a clear idea of how it fits into the world of Pangaea.

Name: Izamatl
Race: Chimera (Nahual)
Skills: Survival, Acrobatics, Knowledge (Nature)

Concept: Izamatl is a shape-changer; alternating between human and jaguar form. He was sired in a small hominid village deep within the temperate forests in the foothills of a vast mountain range. He served as a protector for the village, tasked with keeping the people safe from natural predators and rival tribes. Many generations ago, his ancestor was rescued by the folk of the village, and in thanks vowed to protect them. The village prospered and grew, and after some time a group of villagers split off to found a new settlement; when they did, the ancestor sired an offspring to serve as protector for the new village. Since that time, whenever a new settlement is founded, a new nahual is sired to serve as their protector.

Izamatl has served his village for decades, until just over a year ago. He was accompanying a small hunting party when a terrible storm blew through the area; the storm triggered a landslide which buried the entire village, killing all but Izamatl and the few hunters that were with him. His companions made their way to a village some miles away to join their cousins there, but Izamatl did not join them; having failed in his responsibility to protect his village, he felt compelled to isolate himself from civilization for a time.

After several months of solitary wandering, Izamatl once again felt the calling to rejoin society, but he cannot bring himself to call any one place his home; that has been forever lost to him. Instead, he roams the countryside, looking for ways in which he can aid the people, in a never-ending quest to atone for his failure.

You know, that's a good question. I actually went back and forth as to whether he had a hybrid form (part man, part jaguar) at all times, or whether he shifted from man to beast. I'm still not necessarily married to the current concept; I just didn't find a 'hybrid' image that I liked, so ultimately went with the one I posted.

I like the pic you picked as it has the Central American Indian feel to it and the jaguar feature's prominently in their mythology.

Hello everyone, thank you for all the interest. The game forum is here, so please feel free to pop in a say hello.

I love the characters and we can certainly proceed with the group we have.

Thaco: Awesome concept and backstory for Izamatl! Perfect for a hunt.
