This wicked denizen of the outer planes has a multiarmed female torso atop the body of a great snake. When uncoiled, she can stand taller than a large man. Each of the abhir's six arms can wield a weapon (favored weapons are magical swords and battle axes). This monster can constrict her victim with her snakey tail, and can cause magical darkness in a 5' radius. She has infravision and other extraordinary abilities, any one of which can be used once per round: charm person, teleport, levitate (as an 11th-level wizard), read languages, detect invisibility, pyrotechnics, polymorph self, project image. The abhir can gate in another abhir with a 50% chance of success.

Abhirs desire the sacrifice of strong warriors, and they are constantly looking for ways to do evil deeds in service of their lords. Lower-level denizens of the outer planes greatly fear the domineering and cruel abhirs.
