The Devil Mother Dragon of the Woods

She is an evil spiritess who haunts the woods. The mother of the Devil in dragon form, she suckles snakes, raises serpents and breast-feeds beasts.

Beware of her presence — her pox-ridden pestilential body is host to a myriad of infections. If you so much as peek in her direction, a multitude of diseases will descend upon you.

As an aid to identification, please refer to our artist’s impression. We suggest you do not look too closely, just to be on the safe side.
