Although it was small, the rock viper's bite was quite deadly. There had never been a proven case of anyone surviving such a bite without some sort of medical treatment, either magical or herbal. The victim of such a bite first suffered swelling, massive bruising, and discoloration around the wound. Then, within 60 seconds after being bitten, his heart would begin to palpitate, his breathing would become irregular, his endocrine system would fail, and he would die of total system shock within 6-10 minutes.
