While I intend to use this mini for the yuan-ti Venomblack who appears in Ghostwalk, I thought I'd stat up a monster based on the mini for my site. This alternate Venomblack is the result.

Description and Personality: Venomblack is something of a failure in the yuan-ti breeding programs. He hatched early and grew to be less intelligent and perceptive than other abominations (but still quite sharp and clever when compared to humans). Slightly smaller than others of his kind, his only redeeming feature (in the eyes of his tribe) is that he has a talent for rage, and was encouraged to develop this ability. He is unsubtle and ferocious, barely able to remain still in an ambush and almost useless when it comes to sneaking around. Still, he is very effective in combat and is sometimes chosen to lead teams of halfbloods or purebloods into combat when tactics are not an issue.
Here's a link to the mini I use for this character.
