The ha-naga is a massive and powerful naga lord, often worshiped by other nagas as a god. If refers to make its lair in the ruins of an ancient civilization - preferably one that it has personally brought low. It usually establishes its nest in a former center of society, such as a temple, a throne room, or a coliseum. In this place, the ha-naga gathers together the treasures of the lost society, piling up art, fine jewelry, and the recorded history of the civilization as tributes to its own devastating prowess. In the Three Worlds, there are only a handful of known ha-nagas, the most well-known of which is Louviar's chief lieutenant whi maintains his lair in an ancient temple in the hart of the Polþian Swamp.

A ha-naga is a gigantic snake with the head of a classically beautiful human and a body that measures 100 feet or more in length. It has no set color, rather its scales adopt the hues and shades of its surroundings, much like a chameleon's do.

Ha-nagas speak at least thirteen languages, but one of them is always Infernal. They commonly include Jeblic, Kansattish, Karstish, and Sûlic in the languages they speak.

Though it has no wings, a ha-naga can sly, winding and coiling through the air in a manner similar to a water snake's motion. It uses this ability to its advantage in combat, swirling above and around foes while using its gaze attack or casting spells. Like its smaller serpentine cousins, a ha-naga prefers to use its spells in combat, resorting to melee only when absolutely necessary. when it does engage foes directly, it uses its coiled body like a whip, stings with its tail, and constricts with its body.

Charming Gaze (Su): A ha-naga's gaze functions like the mass charm spell against creatures within 90 feet. Will save DC 35 negates. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Constrict (Ex): A ha-naga deals 4d6+12 points of damage with a grapple check against a Huge or smaller opponent.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a ha-naga must hit with its coil whip attack. it can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes hold and can constrict.

Poison (Ex): Sting, injury, Fortitude DC 33, initial and secondary damage 2d8 Constitution. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Spells: A ha-naga casts spells as a 21st level sorcerer, and can casts pell sfrom the cleric list and from the Pestilence, Plague, and Temptation domains. The cleric spells and domain spells are considered arcane spells for the ha-naga, meaning that it does not need a divine focus to cast them.

Typical spells known (6/10/9/9/9/9/8/8/8/8; save DC 23 + spell level) 0th level - arcane mark, detect magic, ghost sound, light, mage hand, message, open/close, prestidigitation, reach magic; 1st level - alarm, comprehend languages, disguise self, mage armor, magic missile; 2nd level - eagle's splendor, protection from arrows, spectral hand, Tasha's hideous laughter, touch of idiocy; 3rd level - fireball, lightning bolt, rage, suggestion; 4th level - crushing despair, fire shield, ice storm, stoneskin; 5th level - baleful polymorph, dominate person, nightmare, wall of force; 6th level - chain lightning, greater heroism, true seeing; 7th level - greater arcane sight, insanity, Mordenkainen's sword; 8th level - mass charm monster, demand, polar ray; 9th level - meteor swarm, power word kill, prismatic sphere, wail of the banshee, and wish.

Chameleon Scales (Ex): Because of its ever-changing scales, a ha-naga blends in with its surroundings, gaining a +10 circumstance bonus on Hide checks.
