The first experiment in creating a genetically enhanced BOW. This creature is the result of the splicing of human DNA with fly DNA. The T-virus RNA sequence was also incorporated. Chimeras are capable of climbing up walls. Their preferred method of attack is to hang upside down on ceilings and slit their victims throat with their claws. Chimeras provided useful data for many of the later BOWs. They bear many resemblances to them, including the Licker’s large claws and its ability to climb walls, and the Cleaner’s trait of the cellular break down of its body after death. They possess an exceedingly weak exoskeleton though and consequently research on this BOW was abandoned.
