Asphinxes were actually daedric creatures who were banished to the realm of Oblivion along with their daedric brethren. Only one survived the banishment, and it was left in the fortress of Red Mountain where it served the evil ash vampire Dagoth Ur. They had the form of snakes, upon striking their victims they turned to stone, while their poison painfully turns their victim into stone as well. The only way to contain the poison was to amputate the limb that was bitten before the poison could spread.
