    Hadley/Bernie Kosar

Number Four's pet from back on Lorien, was the only Chimaera to travel in the spaceship with the nine members of the Garde. First seen as a gecko in Florida, then as a beagle in Paradise.

  • Disney Death: The supposed tragic death turned out to be this.
    • This shouldn't have surprised anyone; when we last see the dog during the climax, it's wounded, but it doesn't turn to dust like all other aliens that die in the movie. Therefore, it's obvious even before it pops up again in the last scene that it survived.
      • The school does then get blown up, though. Though Sam and Sarah were perfectly fine, too.
    • Done again in The Fall of Five. He is only revealed to have survived in The Revenge Of Seven
  • The Dog Is an Alien
    • Bernie Kosar shapeshifts into a more monstrous, distinctly more extraterrestrial creature (that still resembles a dog) known as a Chimera to pull a Big Damn Heroes, engaging another alien monster in combat and eventually killing it.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Bernie Kosar, the dog named after a former NFL quarterback.
  • No One Could Survive That!: Survives the attack by the Mogadorian piken and kraul and the school blowing up to come limping on out.
  • Team Pet
  • Took a Level in Badass: When he transforms into the chimaera.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Can shapeshift and takes on the form of a dog-kraul-hybrid during the fight at Paradise High.
  • Sizeshifter: This is a given as a Chimaera. He frequently changes size to fit the needs of individual missions; assuming both giant, Griffin-like forms and that of a tiny mouse.

A Chimaera of Crayton's, lives in a reservoir in the Picos de Europa mountains because it's convenient.


Adam's Chimaera. Tragically dies during the finally battle saving Adam.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Despite being mortally wounded, he transforms his lower half into spider legs in order to pull Adam from the chasm he and Phiri Dun-Ra tumbled into. He dies shortly after, frozen in his final form.
  • Everybody Lives: Averted. Dust appears to be the only casualty on the Loric side during the final assault.
  • Sizeshifter: Does this several times in the final book.
    Raylan's Chimæra 
A collection of Chimaera belonging to Ella's biological father, sent on the ship with her.
