  • It's probably the source of snake infestation throughout the Forbidden Woods.
  • It's probably related to the unknown rune on the Astral Clocktower that depicts the snake balls.
  • It might be a reference to Yig - father of serpents, and very possibly could be the snake they the Madaras twins had communed with.
