A green hag is a type of hag that are usually solitary, but sometimes gather together in covens of three hags (of any type). They hate beauty, and delight in corrupting or destroying it. They often assume the forms of attractive young women in order to ruin the lives of young men.[1]


In its natural form, a green hag appears as a sickly, green-skinned crone. A typical specimen is between five and six feet in height, and 160 pounds in weight.[1]


Green hags have a number of magical abilities, primarily from the illusion school. If forced into melee combat, they use their sharp claws, which sap the strength from their opponents.[1]



Changelings born from green hags are known as green-born changelings or callow mays. Though they are often withdrawn and soft-spoken, they are superb manipulators, yet have a deep appreciation of the natural world.[2]
