Do we need this?

A liminal being usually depicted with a human head, arms, and torso with the added twist of a snakes tail similar to a Mermaid, Centaur, and some Genies. Beings like this can also involve more exotic bodily configurations such as Multi-Armed and Dangerous or wings. Also, some reason most examples are female. Why? Who can say?

Most of the time they are depicted as waking like a Cobra (as in Get out of my face, I am about to strke! cobra) instead of slithering with their whole body. Why? Who can say? PS Please don't try this if you have Non-Mammal Mammaries.
