This is a typical priest of Hassith-Kaa the Great Serpent. It begins combat by casting greater magic fang on its snake-hands. It quickly follows this with a hold person spell against the most powerful looking opponent. After this, it brings its spells, spell-like abilities, and natural attacks to bear against its remaining foes.
