Hell Serpents, less commonly known as Draconagas, once solely existed in Hell, but now a handful exist in the prime from undue summonings. Serpents of the largest size are sometimes used as guardians in Hell by arch- or greater-devils.

Attacks made by the Hell Serpent are either a terrible bite (3-18 damage) or a 30-degree cone of FIRE (100' range) which causes an amount of burn damage points equal to 1-4 times the beasts' hit dice. Spell use is as an Illusionist of level 8-12 (depending on its size). Defensive spells are only used once the beast's hit points are reduced by half.

These alert foes are almost never surprised; only on a 1 on d20. In Hell, it might be accompanied by 2-7 Red Abishai (45%) or 2-5 Spine Devils (30%), and on the Prime by 3-12 Snake Men (60%) or 1-6 Dracoids (40%), but never with both. The Serpent will allow its minions to begin any frays and won't join in until their numbers begin to dwindle.
