Winged Hydra

Also known as a "Three Headed Hydra"

 

A devastating Chimera Creation, the Winged Hydra is an attempt to make the most fearsome breed of dragon even more terrifying! Designed as an ultimate weapon, the intent of the Winged Hydra was to blend the flight capabilities and the intelligence of other dragons with the deadliness and regeneration of the Hydra. Exactly how they captured the dragons or the exact type of other dragon used in the experiment remain unknown, and at this point a historical triviality. What history does remember is the result.

Though the Chimera Circles were crafted masterfully, the experiment took an unexpected twist. Preparations were taken to subdue and control the Winged Hydra upon its creation, but no amount of planning and foresight could have prepared them for what happened next. When the finished product formed within the Chimera Key, it was not one Winged Hydra but three! Each of the three Winged Hydras possessed only three heads. How each of the three formed wings is yet another mystery, but it is believed to be connected to the amazing regenerative abilities of the Hydra that can even regrow missing limbs. There's still some debate if a nine-headed Hydra was used, or if up to two other dragons were used and two of the nine heads belong to different types of dragons.

Instead of gaining the intellect of the other dragon, the Hydras appeared more insane than ever, possibly a result of losing so many of its heads. The Winged Hydras destroyed everything in their path, including the Magi that created them. Even though notes were salvaged from the experiment, no one else has ever attempted to repeat it. This is considered a failed experiment, leaving only the original three remaining in the world. There are rumors that one of them was killed by a lone knight on horseback. Whether true or not, that doesn't change the fact that means there's still at least two more of these monstrosities out there somewhere.
