Khysothemis is a gorgon, a snake-tressed and snake-bodied inhabitant of the wastelands. She has little like for mortal men, and hunts trespassers of her domain with her great black bow. Rumor has it she tries not to dispatch her foes with her sight—which like all gorgons turns its victims to stone—but prefers to kill with her arrows, so she may feast upon the slain victim's flesh. While she has little to no liking for others, she seems to especially despise elves, specifically female elves. It is not know why, but some say it is because they remind her of her own hideousness.
