 Hydras are giant dragon-like serpents with multiple heads.


Emerging directly from Greek myths, hydras are powerful creatures difficult to defeat, not only for their large number of heads attacking simultaneously from all directions, but also for their ability to breathe fire through their enormous mouths, and their capacity for regeneration: if one head is cut, another will be born in its place.[1]

The original Hydra was an offspring of Typhon and Echidna, and even after being killed it still preserves some of its power: if its fangs are sown, an army of undead skeleton warriors will be born from it, the Hellspawn of the Hydra.[2]
