Brizio's curse slowly worked its way through Niassa's body. She was no longer human. It took every amount of willpower to retain her sanity and composure. The sensation of her very mind being twisted made her want to scream, yet she found only a strange smile forming on her face. All she could do was pray that her sister come to her aid in time.
See Snake Charmer Niassa.
Snake charming is the practice of pretending to hypnotise a snake by playing an instrument called pungi. Although snakes are able to sense sound, they lack the outer ear that would enable them to hear the music. They follow the pungi that the "snake charmer" holds with their heads. The snake considers the person and pungi a threat and responds to it as if it were a predator. The most popular species are typically various kinds of cobras, though vipers and other types are also used.
