A deadly Serpent Priestess.

Serpent Priestesses are position held by war devotees within the Amazon Sisterhood.

Jungle Warrior

These Amazon warrior mystics wield powerful magic and are knowledgeable in navigating the jungle. [1b]

The nature of the Amazonian Sisterhood is largely unknown to outsiders, but it has been observed that particularly warlike devotees are referred to as 'Serpent Priestesses'. These warrior-mystics are potent magic wielders, and wise in the ways of the jungle. [1c]

On occasion, a Priestess will appear to aid and guard an army fighting in Lustria. Any army that can count one as an ally is fortunate indeed. Serpent Priestesses are also sometimes willing to work as mercenaries. [1b][1c]

A Serpent Priestess is a native of of the dark depths of Lustria, and the jungles hold no peril for her. [1c]

Magic

Priestess for Hire

Other Dogs of War, the Dwarfs, the Empire High Elves, Lizardmen, Ogre Kingdoms and the Wood Elves will sometimes be guided by a priestess. [1c]

Very occassionally and usually in an effort to lure them to their doom, a serpent priestess may aid darker-hearted armies. [1c] Even when Priestesses are on opposite sides they will not fight each other directly. [1b]

Weapons and Equipment

  • 6th Edition: Amulet of the Moon, Claw of the Old Ones. [1c]
  • Amulet of the Moons - This ancient symbol of the power of the Amazonian Sisterhood casts a silvery shimmer around the wearer, protecting her from harm. [1c]
  • Claw of the Old Ones - This mighty High Age weapon is deadly in the hands of those with the knowledge to call forth its power, granting the Priestess increased strength that bypasses armour. [1c]

Quotes

It was one of their leaders, a woman of serene countenance who bore magical artefacts. She cut down a dozen foes in a single actinic blast. That time, the woman made common cause with us against Lizardmen ambushers, though I have no doubt she would have wielded her weapons against us had we given her reason.

~ The Journal of Johann Besksbein, day 48. [1a]
