The Haemorrhois is a creature with origins in Medieval European mythology, legend and folklore. It is a magical breed of a mundane species of snake, called an asp.
It looks like a normal asp, but white with red streaks in it.
Its bite is said to cause the victim to bleed out through his pores, as though sweating blood.
