What is a Chimera in relation to the new Science Fiction Space opera; A.I. Insurrection?

The Chimera of ancient Greece was a thing of immortal make, not human, a creature of many parts, snorting out the breath of the terrible flame of bright fire. Head of a Lion sporting the horns of a bull and a snake for a tail. The emblem emblazoned on these people’s chests who refer to themselves as Chimera, branded to their flesh, embodies the classic image of the mythical beast.

Why call themselves Chimera? It is obvious when you look at one, as they have married their flesh with tech. Becoming more than human and claiming to be more than a cyborg. Implants in their skulls, padded muscle enhancers, some with outright plasteel rebar supporting their spines and legs and arms. Weapons fashioned out of pulse rifles attached to their mutilated bodies. They have nanobots improving their senses and fighting off sickness. They are part machine, part man, all Chimera.

They are anarchists. Discontented with the thousand shades of grey they are forced to experience day in and day out as pawns within the United Earth government. They play on the Shadow net and in underground cities. They share information and new techniques to merge flesh and bone with tech. They range in age from thirteen to thirty-three. They are the ungovernables, and they want a new kind of freedom. The freedom to evolve. To advance beyond the slow progression of the human race.
When they realize their time is now, they do not hesitate.
