Also Called

  • Naga Mimicry

Capabilities

User with this ability either is or can transform into an Naga (female: nagi or nagini), snake-like spirit in Hinduism and Buddhism able to shift between and combine features of human and snake in various ways. They are nature spirits (some are worshiped as deities) associated with and protectors of waters, rivers, lakes, seas and wells. They bring rain, and thus fertility and prosperity, and are guardians of treasure, but are also able to cause natural disasters such as floods and drought.

Naga tend to be curious and are malevolent to humans only when they have been mistreated. Because they dwell in lakes and rivers both above and below ground as well as caves, they are susceptible to mankind's disrespectful actions in relation to the environment.

In modern setting most naga lack the ability to change their shape freely and are locked into single form that ranges from humanoid head connected to snake-body to more common human torso, snake for legs combination.
