They are by far one of the creepiest kinds.

– Her hands are weapons themselves. The fingers didn’t seem to have skin, they were just sharpened bones that turned into claws, and glowed an angry red.

– Being close to one makes you feel like death, your whole body breaks out in chills as nausea rolls through you like waves crashing against a shoreline.

Powers
– Acid Spitting
– They pucker their lips before spitting.
– Their acid made one’s arm feel like it would fall off.
– The acid is combustible. Green acid. Phosphorescent steam.
– The little shits could be very nasty. It was best not to startle them either, as one spit to the face could leave you blind for life.
– Loudness sent them into a spitting frenzy.

Weakness
– Snakeroot demons were terrified of Monkshood demons.
– Those little creatures loved sugar. Cupcakes, syrup, candy – anything sweet would distract them.
