Devil’s Snare

Devil’s Snare is a magical plant which can constrict or strangle anything near it or which touches it. The plant has some amount of a sense of touch, and will bind anyone that touches it, tightening faster the more a person struggles. The only way to get it to willingly release a person is for the person to relax, though the plant will stop moving in a brightly lit environment and will draw back from the heat of a fire.
