A marai is finely robed and nimble, with six colourful vipers in place of arms, and a long, forked tongue in its fanged mouth. These arms are incapable of fine manipulation or wielding weapons, so a marai typically assumes humanoid form when needed; if that is not possible, it has to rely on a cantrip, slave, or ally. A marai is six feet tall and weighs 160 pounds.
Marai are driven by the possibility of new magical discoveries with no concern for morality or ethics. A marai prefers to torment and exploit mortals unaware of its true nature, and to use magic to bring down would-be heroes, especially invaders. Marai only feel enjoyment, however, if victims are unaware of the danger or unable to oppose it.
