Historical Information

In Egyptian mythology, Serket was the goddess of scorpions, often taking the form of one, or when it suited her, the form of a woman with a scorpion on her head. She was able to dissipate the effects of any poison, not limited to snake bites and scorpion stings, and was capable of protecting her kinsmen from the venomous excretions of mythical creatures. As such, she was often called upon to guard the serpent god Apophis whenever the great beast was captured.

Add all of the Serket from Garlaige Citadel's drops to this Serket's loot pool as well. Also, Sandworm does not appear in Fort Karugo-Narugo (S).
