|Shadow Hearts: Covenant|
Creature found in Nahash Temple, in the Director's Cut edition of the game.
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.
The creatures derives from Greek mythology, having been spawned from the blood dripping from Medusa's severed head. In contrast to the bestiary entry, both heads were said to be poisonous.
The name is shared with a genus of legless lizards.
