Brine hags fight intelligently, using their element to best advantage. They often open a combat by trying to hurl armored opponents into the water to drown, then attacking less heavily armored foes with their terrible teeth and claws. Brine hags tend to use their spells to whittle down their foes' strength before combat or to execute last-minute escape; brine hags prefer to taste blood on their tongues in combat and do not like fighting from a distance.
From time to time, a trio of hags gathers as a covey. Usually this foul triune consists of three hags from three different types, but this is not always the case.
Hags in a covey rely on deception and their boosted magical abilities in combat.
A hag eye is a magic gem created by a covey. It appears to be nothing more than a semiprecious stone, but a gem of seeing or other such effect reveals it as a disembodied eye. Often, a hag eye is worn as a ring, brooch, or other adornment. Any of the three hags who created the hag eye can see through it whenever they wish, so long as it is on the same plane of existence as the hag. A hag eye has hardness 5 and 10 hit points. Destroying a hag eye deals 1d10 points of damage to each member of the covey and causes the one who sustained the greatest damage to be blinded for 24 hours.
