Characteristics[edit]

The Auroral serpent is an ancient serpent that was sealed away in the frigid wastes of the Sniflheim region in the distant past by Erdwin for serving the Dark One. His prison is visible in the game's first act when the party passes through the region, but it isn't until the second act that he becomes a threat. The auroral serpent is freed by Mordegon to terrorize the people of Sniflheim, but its strength has been sapped away by the passage of time. When it spots the party from above, it declares that it will devour the group to replenish its power and the battle begins; when defeated, the auroral serpent tries to paralyze the party with Burning Breath and kill them at once, but is frozen in place by Serena's harp music and is killed by her casting Kaswoosh.

In the third act, the serpent is automatically freed by the revival of the Dark One and is restored to full power by his master's presence, committing several assaults on Snifleheim. Queen Frysabel asks the party to dispose of the menace, who immediately recognizes the Luminary as a descendant of Erdwin before commencing his attack. When the wyrm is wrecked, the Queen will reward her heroes with a High-Born Blade.
