- Sarkranis has a regal ophidian face with slightly recurved fangs, alluring slitted absinthe-green eyes and a sleek Velakan snout, iridescent gold scales with a sheen reminiscent of sunrise, a beaded tail drape of rich copper silk suspending golden coins accenting a long, serpentine tail that tapers to a sharp point and a sinewy figure.
- She is compact for a S'Kra Mur.
- A textured spider made with contrasting shades of gold floats lazily around her head, glowing with a lustrous sheen against her scales.
- She appears to be in her prime.
- Her scaley face is decorated with wispy tendrils of red gold wire dotted with pale green turquoise, creating fiery arabesques that curl around her right eye before ending in a bevy of small spirals on her cheekbone.
- She is wearing a rich sanguine gamantang with a golden arabesque overlay, a billowing Musparan silk robe embroidered with arabesque serpents, a pair of sturdy leather sandals clasped with polished onyx fangs, an ouroboros ear-hook of lustrous orichalcum, a snug choker of desert-hued links interspersed with tiny cambrinth amulets, a fiery glass sunburst captured by a multistrand red gold chain, an intricate double ouroboros of gold and niello, a cambrinth armlet commemorating the unbinding of Peri'el, a royal purple armband embroidered with a hand holding a heart inside a crystal circle, a cambrinth handflower accented with gold and copper filigree, a blighted gold bracelet studded with large flame opals, a hammered gold ring set with a round cabochon sunstone, a polished golden hip-chain set with a large blood red aevanstone, a highly polished tailband tinted in shades of red and purple, a desert-hued camlet pack trimmed with lava samite, a fuzzy pink-toed tarantula suspended from thick spidersilk straps, a tethered Wayerd pyramid with alternating gold and silver panels labeled "Free Empath" and a sungold-hilted ankle knife displaying an etched blade.
- Her features are hidden behind a smooth, expressionless mask of lilac moonsilver, which glows with a silvery amethyst light. Forming an infinity symbol that loops around the shadowed eyeholes, tiny absinthe emeralds swirl with unsettling, misty glimmers. The curved lips are sealed shut, as if holding back secrets.

Arched in a U-shape with a head on each end, the fanciful serpent is a twist on an ancient symbol of healing and wisdom. The initials "M. C." have been stamped onto the back of the diamond-hide shield.

Sarkranis shows you her viper scale spellbook. The spellbook has been carefully bound in magma viper scale, which is painted with an emerald-green king snake coiled tightly about a shattered egg. It appears to be in pristine condition and is beaded along the edges with some deep green garnet vipers with blood-red ruby fangs, some verdant green peridot king snakes and some smooth platinum cobras with multi-hued gemstone eyes. Bold calligraphy inlaid in lustrous gold leaf scrawls dramatically over the viper scale cover.
A serpentine emerald viper bloodlock has been attached to the spellbook. The emerald viper's head has been looped back over to grasp its tail over the front end of the book, securing it closed. Tiny ivory fangs jut out of its maw into the tail, locking it in place.
A platinum dragon's claw socket has been inset in the spellbook's cover, just below the title. A hafaltu-veined kuldaez crystal rests in the relentless clutches of the platinum dragon's claw.
