Nāga are a species of large, intelligent reptile. Though they bear some humanoid characteristics, that is where the comparison ends. Their society is complex enough to make interactions with other kith a possibility, but the Nāga have never entertained cooperation as a viable alternative to violence. Nāga adhere to a strict religious doctrine that mirrors the Wheel in many aspects, though focuses prominently on the Nāga's superiority above all other creatures.

Within Nāga society, they divide up individual roles around a mixture of born traits, cunning, and ambition. Nāga possessing few talents above the ability to grip a sword are consigned to the warrior class. The most venomous and keen-eyed Nāga are trained as skirmishers or elite commanders. The spiritual and intellectual Nāga are either instructed into the role of shaman - or fight their way into it - likely spending much of their career defending this status against competitors.
