Description

Green hags are similar in size to human women, appearing like sickly and emaciated old crones, with dark, knotted hair and sagging skin tinged green with a variety of clinging molds and fungi.

A typical green hag stands between 5 and 6 feet tall and weighs just under 160 pounds.

Information

Terrifying crones known to haunt foul swamps and tangled forests, green hags harbor an intense hatred for all beauty and purity. Making use of their varied deceptive abilities, these crones delight in murdering innocents, unhinging noble minds, & debasing the pure of heart.

They are particularly fond of using ''alter self'' to assume the forms of alluring young maidens and then seducing young men away from their lovers or families. In this form, they can infect such noble and upstanding citizens with all manner of debauchery and scandal. Some green hags prefer to reveal their true natures to their lovers at a moment precisely engineered to drive the man mad with horror and shame.

Others drag out their dalliances and do what they can to utterly ruin the lives of the men they seduce before showing the broken shell that remains the truth. In the end, the luckiest of these unfortunate lovers end up being eaten by their hag companions – for the unlucky, their final doom can be much worse, for the cruel imagination of the green hag is vast.

While any combination of 3 hags can form a coven, the green hags are by far the ones who are most often willing to join these foul gatherings.
