Conversion Notes: The Characteristics, Powers and Skills here represent the minimum found in a wereserpent from Rifts role playing game. The activation roll on the Charismatic Aura spell should be rolled for each person observing the target of the spell, not for the casting of the spell itself. If the roll fails the observer doesn't see the bonus COM and PRE characteristics. The range of the distant voice spell comes out to 750 inches, This write-up uses Champions 5th edition rules. Psionic abilities should draw END from the I.S.P. Endurance Reserve, while spells should draw END from the P.P.E. Endurance Reserve.
The wereserpents are a race of magical shape shifters. They can take on two forms, one human and one of a large serpent, which is considered their natural form. In any form wereserpents can speak, are excellent climbers and can see in almost total darkness.
These magical creatures are renoun for their near invulnerability to convential injury, only silver, magic, psionic abilities and attacks from other supernatural creatures can hurt them, and damage from those attacks heal very quickly. They are particularly vulnerable to silver weapons.
Wereserpents also have limited psionic and magical abilities which allow them to understand and speak languages, blend with their environment, shape shift into other people, frighten away animals, see the invisible, and protect their minds from attack. Unlike most lycanthropes, wereserpents have no hybrid human-animal form and cannot use their magic to gain the forms of other animals.
The natural enemies of wereserpents include vampires, ghouls and spider-demons.
Wereserpents cannot choose an occupation or learn any magic besides that normal for their race.
Note: Also has Remote Viewing psionic ability.
