Medusa

With terrifying poisonous snake hair and glowing bright red eyes that turn anything to stone with a mere glance, Medusa is perhaps the most feared monster in the land. She has monstrous wings and shining bronze claws that can rip through solid iron. Medusa was once a beautiful maiden with flowing gold hair and blue eyes that shimmer in the morning sun. Then in a fiery rage, Athena the beautiful goddess of wisdom turned her into a Gorgon, a monster uglier than the black of hell. Upset at the loss of her beauty, she became so overwhelmed with evil. This evil twisted and turned her heart until it hardened, cold as a stone in the early morning.

Medusa

Medusa was as cunning as a snake, her red eyes dimly lit up like the Luna eclipse. Her long nails are rough like sandstone and she has long lively snakes for hair that carry the most deadly poison. She is old and wrinkly but she has as much energy as a child. She loves the art of the kill. When she decides she wants you dead, you better quickly run! Medusa’s curse makes her selfish and quick thinking. When she puts you to sleep you will see it coming from a mile away. Even her smell can paralyse you. Her rage is stronger than fire.
