Chimeras are derived from the bonding of human and fly DNA and share characteristics of both parents.

Creation

Chimera are created by inseminating a human ovum with fly DNA, through the use of the t-Virus as a bonding agent. The egg is then inserted into the uterus of a human where it matures. As Chimeras grow at the speed of flies, the infant would likely take only a day to be born. After birth it takes approximately 2–4 days to reach adulthood.[1][excerpt 1]

Body design

Aside from their fly-like appearance, the Chimera's most notable characteristics are their ability to walk on walls and ceilings. They usually use the air ducts to travel from one part of the lab to the other and attack with their claw-like limbs. When killed, a chemical imbalance in their bodies causes them to dissolve.[2]

They cannot fly because of the lack of size of their wings, and they lacked a fully developed exoskeleton. Even though they showed signs of notable resilience, their intelligence was little more than that of an insect. Their bodies also hosted a large number of maggots.

excerpts
  1. Excerpt from Inside of BIO-HAZARD, p.55.:
    "B.O.W.開発プロジェクトの一環として、 計画中期から、 頻繁に複数の生物の遺伝子の合成が行なわれた。 個々の生物が持つ特性を組み合わせ、 さらに優れた能力を持つ別の生物を作りだすことに成功したのである。 本来なら遺伝子レベルにおいての異種族の生物の結合は、 ことに高等生物になるほど不安定になるのだが、 異常な進化を促すクレイウイルスの助けを借りて、 神の偉業を可能にしたのだ。 ギリシャ神話に登場する、 獅子と山羊と竜の頭を持った合成生物キメラになぞらえて命名されたこのB.O.W.キメラもその産物である。 人工受精させた人間の卵子に、 昆虫の(この場合はハエ) 遺伝子構造をコピーし、 それを人間の女性の胎内に戻して成長させ出産させるという少々狂気的な方法で製造された。 産まれたプロトタイプは人間とハエの特徴を併せ持ち、 ハエの成長サイクルと同じスピードで急成長し、 羽化後に成体となった。"
