An Amphithere is a South-American winged serpent deity. It is believed that their temples were created as shrines and abodes for the Amphitheres. The main differences between the classic European Dragon and the Amphithere are the Amphithere's serpentine body and feathered wings. It grows to be about 45 feet long and lacks appendages of any kind. It kills by strangulation or burning. Its gaze is hypnotic, so observers of this magnificent beast had to avert their gaze from Its eyes. They are said to inspire fear in those who see them, but are in fact, rather poor fighters, preferring to avoid conflict. There is also a North-American species called Draco Americanus Incognito which is said to have moth or butterfly-like wings.
