Description: Accursed by the fickle gods, Medusa was the combination of a Giant Rattlesnake and a most fortunate human female. She had an irresistible petrifying gaze, and was also a proficient archer, using arrows dipped in her own venom, and naked! What a tease.

Description: All alone in the world, this pariah relentlessly patrols the catacombs she has claimed as her home, seeking revenge on humans for the miseries she has been afflicted with. This one wore a bra, but no wrap or anything on the bottom half. Kind of weird.
