Gorgons are terrifying monsters that are turned into snake women by the goddess Athena after Medusa had an affair with Poseidon in one of her sacred temples. The Blind Gorgons are descendants of the Gorgons of Ancient Greek Mythology. The vast majority are female, as the male genetic makeup is recessive, and the females display great hostility towards their male counterparts, and usually kill them. Not truly "blind" per se, but the term originates from the fact that they lack the ability to truely turn their victims to stone with their gaze. Although, in combat, many have had the psychological belief that they have turned to stone.
The Blind Gorgon is, like their ancestors, a female appearing humanoid with snake like characteristics, most specifically, their "hair." Unlike their ancestors, most Blind Gorgons have facial features some consider "atttactive", which can have a slight paralyzing effect on combatants of the opposite gender.
The Blind Gorgon dwell, predominantly in caves and Dungeons. They have excellent vision in darkness, and are thus capable fighters in such settings. They are armed with sharp teeth, and their bite is toxic, causing extreme pain and localized tissue necrosis if not treated quickly. They are typically armed with short bladed weapons, preferring close quarters combat, as would be typical in the tight quarters of caves and Dungeons. The snake like appendages on their heads are not venomous, but are used to grab and hold their victims, allowing the Blind Gorgon to bite. The lower half of their body is snake lake, and is used in a constrictor fashion, to hold and squeeze their opponent.
