The necrophidius appears as the animated skeleton of a fanged humanoid head with a snake's body. It is immune to the usual range of mind-affecting magics. If the necrophidius achieves surprise (a 3-in-6 chance), it begins its Dance of Death. All surprised individuals must save are be affected as if held; each individual will remain so until attacked. Note that the necrophidius is not an undead creature but is instead a magically-created golem.
