This gigantic, black-headed snake is over 60 ft. long and sheathed in brilliant scales, each splashed with vibrant patterns of every imaginable color. The air around the serpent is heavy, redolent of the quenched red desert after a torrential thunderstorm.

The andrenjinyi may instantaneously teleport between sources of fresh water within 1 mile as a full- round action. This does not provoke an attack of opportunity. When this power is activated, a rainbow manifests between the origin and destination, lasting for 1 minute.
Any creature swallowed by the andrenjinyi must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 23; Cha-based) or be affected by baleful polymorph. The andrenjinyi can regurgitate swallowed creatures as a free action.
Environment warm freshwater
Andrenjinyi hunt as other animals do, but they transform devoured prey into unique species with their baleful polymorph ability, typically creating mixed gender pairs. The region surrounding an andrenjinyi’s sacred pool always shelters a unique menagerie of strange and beautiful animals.
Andrenjinyi are naturally aquatic, preferring to live deep in accumulations of fresh, life-giving water. The serpents usually react violently to intrusions to their sacred sites, attacking transgressors unless they approach with the correct rites, identified with a DC 20 Knowledge (nature) check.
Andrenjinyi sometimes elect to protect nearby communities, calling forth drought-breaking rains, curing afflictions, or destroying rivals. Revered andrenjinyi take offense when their petitioners break fertility and familial edicts, such as prohibitions on incest, rape, and matricide, but also obscure obligations including soothing crying infants and the ritual sacrifice of menstrual blood. Punishments are malevolently disproportionate, often inflicted on the whole community and including baking drought, flooding rains, petrification, pestilence, and animalistic violence.
