Flames of Typhon is a Greekmyth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Artemis and can be researched at the Temple. Once researched, it upgrades Chimeras to Chimera Tyrants, increasing their attack and special attack damage by +30% and their hit points by +20%.
Typhon was a fire-breathing monster that dripped venom from his eyes. The battle between the gods and Typhon was so destructive that most of life on earth was killed. In the end, Typhon hurled Mount Aetna at Zeus, but Zeus struck it with a hundred well-aimed thunderbolts and pinned Typhon beneath the rubble. The monster was never entirely killed, though, which is why Mount Aetna still rumbles with earthquakes and lava. Typhon had many offspring with the equally monstrous Echidna, including the Chimera.
