A two-foot long scorpion of snow and blue ice, a mesri is an elemental creature from the Plane of Water usually found in the company of an aeshna. Mesri are semi-intelligent and congregate in large swarms when not under an aeshna's command.

A mesri attacks using its claws and glittering stinger. Its claws cause -18 hit points of damage each; its stinger, though inflicting only 1-6 points of damage, forces a save vs. poison or the victim loses a point of Dexterity to its icy venom. Multiple stings are cumulative; lost Dexterity returns after twelve hours. Mesri are immune to cold and take no damage from non-magical weapons. When under the command of an aeshna, its morale is 11 instead of 6.
