December 19, 2010 - The Goat

Prompt: Character - The educated, rebellious male half-Chimera with a knack for trouble. His non-human ancestry gives him a horribly inhuman appearance.

Source: Modified from


He was tall and broad-shouldered, traits that might have been valued in a human, or even in an elf, but on him it only served to make him more frightening, more threatening. Cimeon thought that, if he had been born shorter or a little skinnier he would be easier to ignore. Or if his dad had not been a full-blooded Chimera. Having blue skin or pointy ears or fangs was one thing, having blue skin, pointed ears, fangs that would put a vampire to shame, being tall and having gigantic shoulders was something completely different. The goat growing out of the middle of his back probably did not help either.

Notes: A chimera is an ancient beast that has (among other things) the body of a lion and the head of a goat growing from the middle of its back.

Also, I know I missed two days, but one of them I was flying across the country and the other I was having computer problems and major jet lag, so I decided to excuse myself from the penance prompts (which is horribly lazy, I know, but oh well).
