In her natural form, a hebi-no-onna is a type of naga but very humanoid in appearance with arms and legs, though still obviously reptilian with scales, slit eyes, claws, and fangs, her skin tones generally ranged from jade green, onyx black, bronze, copper, crimson red to even albino much like serpents in the world and her scales can come in different patterns. She has two arms but she also has two serpents that sprout from her back that reach out to attack. Though amongst mortals she almost never attacks in this form until she attacks, she generally takes on the form of a wealthy noblewoman or handsome male though nowhere near as seductive as the rokuro-kubi. The hebi-no-onna generally wishes to look like a friend or ally, with a soft cherub face and warm smile and eyes, she would almost appear like a beloved female leader of a community, painter or poet. She understands what mortals care about and she speaks with passion about these topics, which makes the eventual betrayal so painful in the last moments of her victims. The hebi-no-onna is a powerful spellcaster and wizard from the hidden uraga empire and is actually called a uraga vizhard and she furthers the agenda of her rakshasa allies, oni, and bakemono minions and she does so a web of spies like the rokuro-kubi and the uraga jadugara. Uraga jadugara are known to give their magic reserves to the uraga vizhard in combat.
