Hocus chimaera

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Hocus Chimaeras look just like their normal kin, but are composed of warmer colors such as browns and oranges. True to their name, they have learned a wingfull of spells.

Characteristics[edit]

Firey feathered, floating, flappy beasts with perpetually fluttering wings that keep them afloat and allow the hocus chimaera to breath a fearsome fire on all adventurers in a single swoop. Despite their magical sounding name, the only thing they can do besides belch fire is peck at opponents with their pointed beaks.

Description Blazing-breathed mountain birds of the chimaera family who are tough against fire, and may lay some good eggstras when licked.

Their sepia tone puts people in a misty-eyed mind of yesteryear, but they themselves are young, dump, and full of fun.
