A dark naga was a naga subspecies that looked like a large purple snake or eel with a barbed stinger at the end of its tail and a human face. Dark nagas could speak Common and Infernal. They liked to plot with other creatures of evil alignment so that they could gather wealth more easily.[3]


Dark nagas measured approximately 12 feet long and weighed about 300 pounds. Their scales were dark blue or purple, often with black frills or scale patterns. The body of a dark naga was more similar to that of an eel rather than a snake. Its tail ended in a poisonous stinger.[citation needed]

Their veins contained an oily black gore.[4]


Dark nagas craved power and wealth. They loved using their magical powers and the treasures they found in ancient ruins to rule those who were weaker than themselves.[citation needed]


Dark nagas would attempt to use high terrain to their advantage to stay out of the reach of their enemies.[3]


They could cast sorcerer spells and their stings carried a poison that could induce a nightmarish sleep. They were resistant to all charm effects and had the permanent ability to detect thoughts. Similarly, their own thoughts could not be read.[3]


The Zhentarim were known to use dark nagas as mentors and leaders for bands of orcs.[5]
