In life, Geryon was a trickster, defrauding anyone and everyone he could. Crossing the King of Elfland, he became a giant monstrous being upon his death, with a serpentine body ending with a stinger, raptors' wings, and leonine paws.

Anyone aligned with the King of Elfland who meets Geryon, Geryon must serve — he must confess as much, once he is aware of any degree of alliance with the King. Likewise, anyone who can recount the story of one of Geryon's misdeeds to his face will have his loyal service for 1d12 days (or a number of days determined by the Judge based on the severity of the fraud recounted; recounting the fraud perpetrated upon the King of Elfland himself may result in a year or more of service).

If Geryon is reduced to 0 hp, he dissolves, reforming somewhere in Hell, where from he must claw his way back to the mortal world to continue to pay his debt to the King of Elfland.

The poison of his stinger will completely paralyze anyone mortal for 1d24 hours, unless they can succeed on a DC 16 Fort Save, thereby only being affected for 1d4 rounds. Other sorts of beings will be affected to a different degree, or not at all, as preferred by the Judge.

When not in direct service to anyone, Geryon tends a large herd of red cattle.

Look, you just don't want to spend a night in the marsh. It's haunted!

The worst of it is the Marsh Ghost... s'like a man in a cloak and hood, must stand near eight feet tall, it does, and carries an axe what it hacks folks apart with...

If you try to run, it flies after you, or moves over the marsh faster than anything else could, coz it don't have to touch the ground, does it?

If you try to smash it with a stick, or a sword if you have one, more often than not, your weapon will just pass right through it, like 7 times out of 10. Unless you have a magical thing to strike it with, which it can't seem to avoid like other things.

But it can also just disappear and then reappear as it likes... in the same spot, or anything up to a hunnert feet away! (thrice a night)

They's some who say that even if you thinks you've kilt it, it jus' comes back after a few nights... You've just made yo'self what they call a reepreeve. No kind of lasting safety, I assures you.
