In classic Lamia fashion, Egle possesses the upper body of a human attached to a lengthy coil of slithering scale and muscle. From the tip of her tail to the crown her head, Egle is an approximate 7.82m (approx. 25.65 ft) in length. When standing upright she's 1.68m (5'6" ft), leaving a length of 6.14m (approx. 20ft) behind her.
Her scales are smooth and tightly packed together, and can mostly be found covering her tail. However, patches of scales can be found scattered along other sections of her body including her; cheeks, neck, torso, and arms. The coloration of her scales is, for the most part, darker hues of purple, blue and black, aligned in a simple camouflage pattern; with the exception of her underbelly, which is white, and a set of bright iridescent scales on her humanoid torso used for communication among those of the same species. All her scales are cool and smooth to the touch, but cable of providing basic defense, though in this as well, her underbelly and torso are the exceptions, being instead, soft, supple and warm. Most of her scales are matte, while her communal scales are glossy and lustrous.
As a snake species of Beastkin, she has access to a plethora of senses including; a forked tongue to assist a heightened sense of smell, heat-detecting pits hidden beneath the scales on her cheeks, a dual set of external and internal ears, tactile receptors across her body, and vibration sensitive tissue lining her underbelly. Her vision is, however, rather poor and limited to the few meters surrounding her. Egle is extremely sensitive to changes in temperature, and although not as greatly affected as her fully reptilian counterparts, she does poorly in cold climates.
Egle sports a lengthy head of black hair tied into a braid and thrown over her left shoulder. She decorates her hair with a dark metallic ornament of a snake utilized as a hair-binding, and a pair of silver hair needles. The serpentine hair accessory is a member of a 5-piece set of decor that consists of the hair-piece, a serpentine armband on her right upper arm, a snaky little ring on her left ring finger, and two pendants she keeps wrapped around her tail.
The skin on her humanoid half is a dusky brown, and its figure is lithe and toned. Egle's top half is clothed by a shoulderless coat that exposes her midriff. She also wears a skirt with split edges.
In her mouth is a pair of fangs attached to her venom gland, and behind those are a row of recurved teeth. While she has a preference for meat, she's capable of eating just about anything she can swallow whole.
She possesses yellow, slit pupils as well as both brille* and eyelids.
* The brille is the layer of transparent, immovable disc-shaped skin or scale covering the eyes of some animals for protection.
Similar to mermaids, Egle is capable of manifesting human legs for more convenient travel. When manifested her tail does not disappear, but instead shortens to a length of 1.5m. Her legs are covered with the same coloration as her tail, with the white scales on her underbelly appearing on the inside of her thighs. The pair of pendants wrapped around her tail and transferred to her ankles after transformation and visa-versa.Weapons:

N/ABorn in the arid deserts of the Beastman Alliance, Egle once belonged to a tribe of snake-kin who were scattered to the winds during the on-going war between the Beastman Alliance and the Holy Empire of Men. From a young age, she was captured and enslaved and spent most of her life growing up in the Holy Empire of Men. To be more specific she was sold to a noble in the south-western section of the Empire, several tens of kilometers from the border of Nyllia.
- Stealth - Quite stealthy for one so large. (Only applicable in dark areas.)
- Tracking - a natural born tracker.
- Swimming - A powerful swimmer due to her versatile tail.
- Hug - Comes in the lethal and non-lethal varieties.
While she was never horribly abused, she wasn't exactly treated nicely either. Her 'owners' saw fit to feed her at their leisure, often irregularly as several days to weeks could pass before they remembered. She was more often than not, forced to scavenge for her own sustenance from wherever should get it eating everything from what birds and rodents she could catch to, on one occasion, the neighbor's pet cat.
On one outing, as her owners visited the nearby river, she seized the opportunity to slip into the water where her swimming abilities and larger lung capacity allowed her to escape pursuers. She survived mainly on what fish she could catch, and what creatures she could ambush at the River's edge. She kept to the shallows whenever she needed to rest and traveled beneath the surface for as long as possible. After several weeks, she'd managed to cross the border of the Empire and enter into the Queendom of Nyllia. Noticing the marked increase in the number of beastmen, she resurfaced and spent a short while within the Queendom, learning basic skills like Reading and Writing. It was also around this time that she changed her name to Plumeria, after the flower, representing Rebirth and New Beginnings. After a year or two, she decided to travel to Ternus and join the Adventurer's Guild as she was lacking in the skills to do anything else.
By a stroke of luck, she was able to swim all the way to the Guild's HQ!
