A vouivre is a two-headed, reptilian aquatic creature. While its head and body resemble an elongated, winged green wyvern, its tail resembles the upper body of a beautiful dark-haired humanoid woman. They spend their time bathing in pools and slow-moving rivers, preferring to prey on humanoid males and other people that come too near.[1]

Appearance

A vouivre is 12 feet long from end to end and weighs 500 pounds. Vouivres can breathe fire like a dragon, and rattle their scales to produce unnerving magical sonic effects.[1]

Habitat and ecology

Vouivres reproduce asexually. After death, a vouivre's dragon head expels a ruby that serves as an egg. After growing for several weeks, a juvenile vouivre hatches and spends seven years maturing and hunting waterfowl and fish. A vouivre can live for 200 years, and needs to feed every two months.[1]

Vouivres draw serpents of all kinds to them, and occasionally collaborate with evil fey, but otherwise dwell apart from other creatures. Vouivres have a dragon's love of gemstones and treasure, although they sometimes use their hoards to lure unwary travelers.[1]
