Chevaline



  • n. [shev-uh-leen]

    Chevaline is a fictional creature from Neal Stevensons post-cyberpunk novel The Diamond Age. The Chevaline is a nanovictorian bioengineered horse-like creature built with a virtually unlimited power supply and preternatural agility. Seems to derive from the French word for an equestrian statue.

    Chevaline is the pseudonym for Memetec Design LLCs creative director C. Cole, an accomplished dancer who was involved in establishing The Venue in Boise Idaho.
