Necro Serpent

"That son of a necro serpent!"
- Kao Venkaprja

Basic Information


A large serpent that is white with blind eyes and large fangs. The snake is on par with various mythical snakes that are larger than life and can eat a person in one bite.

Genetics and Reproduction

It is believed that these snakes reproduce by internal fertilization. The females will then lay eggs. There are some fossilized eggs that were found in a cave. Since the eggs were found in a cave it is assumed that they were laid in the cave on purpose. The eggs are then protected by the female. Once they are hatched the babies are on their own. This is assumed because of how snakes work in the living world.

Growth Rate & Stages

"Are those...?" Raga  asked as he looked where Schaudteif pointed.   "Eggs?" Schaudteif mused, "Yes. They are nerco-eggs."
  When the eggs hatch a seventeen-inch snake comes out. They grow around ten inches every year.

Ecology and Habitats

They lived deep underground and most of the tunnels that are under Bridt Sche were carved by these creatures and some cave mouths are believed to where they use to come from the surface.

Uses, Products & Exploitation

The parts of this elusive beast can be used to make powerful Necromancy magics such as the bones, eyes, and anything else that is left. Giostralia is the blood of these creatures and is used to make Giostralia Nuerune. Due to how valuable and scarce these resources are some Necromancer have been trying to use the parts to bring the necro serpents back to life.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

The snake was believed to be blind and smelled through its forked tongue. It had nostrils and breathed through them according to old documents written by the Miylian Elders.

Civilization and Culture


Necro Serpents were dangerous when they roamed the land and caused problems for the Miylian Elders that the Shifter Dragons were not dealing with because there were other things that they were doing. The Elves got tired of the serpents terrorizing their villages and forcing their dead to walk and attack them. The Elves used their Light magics to banish and kill them until there were none left. Since then the dead of Miyla started to rest in peace again.
