Referred to as the Watcher of the Ways by the Dwarves, the Ophidian lurks in the darkness of massive subterranean caves watching the movements of those who traverse its vaulted underworld. Bred by the Stygian, the Ophidians are their eyes and ears, flying hundreds of miles and relaying their information back to their Priestesses through a link established before they even hatched.
Prevalent in the under realms, they are becoming more and more common in surface battles as well. A Stygian force with an Ophidian or two has superior reconnaissance and tactical advantages. Also a sub-race of the Stygian, Ophidians are powerful and dangerous beast. Their cold intelligence is nonetheless disturbingly clear in their emotionless eyes. Like all the Stygian though, its true intentions are unfathomable, content as it is to glide upon its huge membranous wings and hunt for its meals and spy for its mistress.
In battle, the Ophidian is a terror to engage, a flying arsenal capable of horrific devastation in a variety of ways. Its sharpened bone jaws are capable of snapping a humanoidís head clean off with one pass, its tail capable of knocking down a charging mount and as if this wasnít bad enough, an Ophidian can spit corrosive acid over long distances. Its acid, like that of its cousin the Venom Spawn, will eat through metal and stone equally well.
