Naga

These are the traditional temple guardians of the ancient world. They have the torso of a Furre but a lower body like a huge snake. Their faces are often snake-like, with scales and backswept ears tight to their heads. Furres tend to find them beautiful yet somewhat repellant at the same time.

A Naga can only be magically created by a conclave of Dark Mages. It begins as an egg, which hatches and rapidly grows into a four-meter-long adult over the space of a month. Making a Nagafurre requires the destruction of a Faeriefurre, a mortal Furre, and a snake. They are usually equipped with a warrior's weapons, and armor made especially for them. Then they are set to guard great treasure hoards.

Nagas can spit fist-sized balls of "fyre": gooey stuff that bursts into fire in the air. The Nagafurre's senses of touch and hearing are very acute even in total darkness. They also are, by nature, vain and insecure. They can embody all the worst traits of a young child-- greed, selfishness, laziness, malice, and so on. Also, like a young child, they love to listen to stories, especially long epics.

There are three known ways to distract one. Its serpent nature makes it hungry and after being given a large offering of food, it will go to sleep. Its Faerie nature gives it a curious, playful side, and it can become obsessed with a puzzle toy, such as a large jigsaw or a metal blacksmith's puzzle. The mortal Furre nature gives the Naga susceptibility to loneliness. Most will never have seen another Naga and can be thrown into a state of rapture and longing by showing it a large mirror.
