Gorgons, also known as medusae, are snake-skinned humanoid women with hair made of snakes and the ability to calcify organic entities that look at the gorgon in the face. Incredibly deadly, they are thankfully rare across the planes, only known to have appeared in Dominaria, Ravnica, Shandalar and Theros. On Theros the Gorgons have snakelike lower bodies. [1]

The first creature to bear the type was Masked Gorgon in Judgement, though the Infernal Medusa from Legends was later issued errata in the Grand Creature Type Update to become a Gorgon instead of a Medusa.
