True Gorgon, Sthenno (3pp)

This hideous creature appears to be almost twice as tall as a normal human. Its upper torso is that of a well proportioned human female with scaly flesh while its lower torso is that of a great black-scaled snake. Small black wings protrude from its back. Instead of hair, its head is covered with writhing, deadly asps. Its mouth is filled with razor-sharpened fangs.
