The nagari (pronounced nah-gah-ri) are a race of snake-blooded humans with supernatural powers. Sired from the an union with the naga lord and a heavenly nymph, the nagari are widely respected, sometimes even revered as messengers of Ananta. Nagari are also naga-worshippers, especially in rural regions. Intense rivalry between the various Nagaist sects exist, but seldom lead to physical conflicts. Outsiders know that the nagari have a well-deserved reputation for being charming and quick-witted, but can also be seductive and alluring. Nagari tend to be easily angered and passionate, sometimes indecisive but very patient creatures as a result of their long lifespans.

A nagari is almost indistinguishable from a normal human. They are humanoid, with mostly human characteristics. Nagari are thin and gaunt dressed in a minimum of cloth. Forked tongues, distinct snakelike eyes and never grow facial hair, the nagari also have precious stones embedded into their foreheads. The stones are said to grant them supernatural powers and insight. Superstitious people even fear that looking straight at it will curse them. The colour of these stones wary from individual to individual, sometimes an indication of which sect they belong to. These precious stones are also a highly sought commodity for those who know how to use them. As in many other human communities, every nagari is expected to marry and raise a family. Marriages are arranged by the parents.

Nagari stand 6-1/2 feet tall and typically weigh more than human. They speak Nagarian, and most also know one or more human languages. Nagari can live to be 200 years old.
