Organization solitary

Chimeric corpses are made from the partially decayed parts of numerous dead creatures but animated through technomagical experimentation rather than true necromancy. No two chimeric corpses are exactly alike in appearance. Most are created from the corpses of humanoid creatures that are then augmented here and there with parts taken from animals, resulting in a monster that stands 6 feet tall and weighs 120 pounds.
