Nagahydras were a rare minor subspecies of naga.[1] Like all nagas, they were considered Serpentfolk by other Scaled Ones.[2]

Description[edit | edit source]

Nagahydras were serpentine creatures approximately 20 feet (6.1 meters) long and weighing about 2,000 pounds (910 kilograms). The scales could be of many different colors, including black, deep purple, emerald green, green-gold, bright crimson, and silver. Nagahydras had five necks and vaguely humanoid heads. Bright red and orange spikes ran down the spine.[1]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Nagahydras could regenerate cut-off heads unless fire or acid was applied to the stump. Nagahydras were known to have venomous fangs.[1]

Nagahydras were accomplished sorcerers, capable of casting spells of up to mid-to-high tier; they could also utilize spells that were typically considered to be restricted to clerics, particularly spells of the Destruction and Scalykind domains.[1]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Nagahydras attacked with the venomous fangs and many spells.[1]

Society[edit | edit source]

Nagahydras normally dwelled in temperate forests, and in Faerûn were recorded to live in the jungles of Chult, the Mhair Jungles, and in the Qurth Forest.[1]

Nagahydras typically spoke Common and at least one other language, such as Celestial, Abyssal, or Infernal.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Nagahydras came into existence after the fall of Mhairshaulk and the diversification of the major naga subspecies. They specifically were created when some water nagas tried to reverse said diversification.[3]
