This creature monster has a long skeletal body topped with a fanged human skull. Its eyes glow with a hellish red light. The necrophidius appears to be a great skeletal snake topped with a human skull. To the dismay of some (mainly clerics) it is not undead and therefore cannot be turned or rebuked. The necrophidius is a construct created by an arcane caster to serve as a guardian or assassin. It performs either task with great skill, and being a construct, it never questions its duty as guard or assassin.
A typical necrophidius is 10 feet long.
