The Empire of Light
Chimeric magic was developed by the ancient Drow who used its techniques to create a dazzling variety of bizarre animals and plants. The best known of these is the chimera itself, but many other creatures were also created including the race of degenerate drow – the Elves, and the Half-orcs. After the fall of the Drow city-states the secrets of Chymeric magic was lost, only to be rediscovered in a weaker, but still powerful form by the Wizards of the Empire. Using the secrets they unlocked, the Imperial wizards created the mighty Kharacts – the slave-guard race that guards the Empire’s borders to this day.
