Bestiary EntryEdit

Kanji3

Rough translation:
From Ethiopian folklore comes this two-headed snake. The head on the right can bite with a deadly poison, causing certain death. But should its victim cry tears of supplication, a detocifying bite from the left head can cure it.

EtymologyEdit

Amphisbene

Illumination of an Amphisbaena.

The Amphisbaena derives from Greek mythology, having been spawned from the dripping blood of Medusa's severed head.

As described in its bestiary entry, it had two heads, that were both capable of spewing poison.

Initially described as a just a two-headed wrym, later descriptions added wings, and clawed feet.
