Veneficus are snakes with the abilities of boas and cobras as well as the tail enhancement of a scorpion. They have three eyes on the front of their head that never blink or move. Large black pupils and colored eyeballs always match the color of their forked tongue. Special symbols are displayed above their center eye and are thought to designate their current defensive capabilities. Their scorpion-like tail is their primary means of physical defense and can be customized with different tips.
They can customize the poison they secret from their fangs to induce Status Effects on an enemy as well. They move like sidewinders and always keep their head up. They shed their skin to change armor type and to gain stronger armor over time.

The crystal set in their forehead denotes the type of psionic power currently in use by each Veneficus. These range from basic telekinesis to mind-controlling (or destroying) telepathic prowess. Crystal shape, size, and color match the type of psionics in use; and, legend tells of ancient Veneficus that wield multi-faceted, multi-colored, crowns of runes across their visage.
Shed: Their skin is a natural armor that can be shed at will (to customize defense) and over time (akin to ‘leveling up’)
