Their presence, powerful and serpentine, sparks the embers of imagination and captivates the hearts of storytellers and dreamers alike. These majestic beings, cloaked in mystery, are endowed with a myriad of features that transcend the borders of reality.

Their allure continues to burn bright, casting shadows upon the modern world of literature, art, and entertainment.
