    Tactics

    Before Combat She casts undetectable alignment on herself every morning.  She also has a pair of cockatrices that she keeps loyal with weekly castings of charm monster.

    During Combat She orders her cockatrices to attack, bolstering them with inspire courage and then joining them by casting spells or using her rapier.  She's fond of using suggestion to force foes to adopt dramatic poses and remain motionless so that when they're petrified, the resulting statues are worth more.

    Morale If brought below 10 hit points, she casts gaseous form and attempts to escape and alert allies to the situation.
