Gorgon

Very Rare | Medium | Lawful evil | Humanoid

Often described as a human female with a hideous face and living venomous snakes in place of hair. The typical gorgon has a pale-skinned, very shapely woman’s form. It stands 5 to 6 feet tall with the snakes adding up to another foot. At distances farther than 30 feet, the gorgon is easily confused with a normal woman. Its red-glowing eyes are visible up to 30 feet. At distances of 20 feet or closer, the gorgon’s true nature is revealed.
