It was as if one took a tall thin horse, or perhaps a shaved llama, and replaced its head with that of a cobra complete with hood. Its body was coated in scales, and bone spurs grew from its joints.
A distorted war animal of yuan-ti, it may have once been some manner of horse, camel, or other similar creature. "Domesticated" is only a partly correct as the beasts have proven to be twitchy and easily threatened, and quick to spit or bite in defense. Even so they seem loyal to their creators. Their strength is slightly less due to their lighter thinner frames, and they carry poisons within. This is a war-bred animal.
