Heads re-grow from stumps, but deals half of full hp damage to the body when cut off, one head has 1/9 of full hp. Cut off tail to deal additional 2d6 damage and kill 2d4 heads, untill it re-grow in 1d4+1 rounds, this loss means no heads can "re-grow" before the tail is back, and when that happens the "dead" heads will come back to life
Not even the Gods can save you
