Hypnotic Gaze (Sp)

Once per day, a nagaji monk can attempt to hypnotize a single target, as per the spell hypnotism (CL 5th, DC 12). The effects of the hypnotic gaze only last a single round. This racial trait replaces serpent’s sense.

Resistant (Ex)

Nagaji receive a +2 racial saving throw bonus against mind-affecting effects and poison.

Spit Venom (Ex)

Nagaji monks have mastered the feat of spitting venom into an opponent’s eyes. As a full-round action, they can spit poison up to 10 feet as a ranged touch attack. If hit, the target must make a DC 14 Fortitude save or be blinded for 1d6 rounds. They may use this ability twice per day.

This dark-scaled reptilian humanoid has lidless eyes, and a serpentine tongue that flickers from a fanged, lipless mouth.

The nagaji are a race of ophidian humanoids with scaled skin that mimics the dramatic appearance of true nagas. Like serpents, they have forked tongues and lidless eyes, giving them an unblinking gaze that most other races find unnerving.

Their physical forms are otherwise humanlike, raising wary speculation about their origins. It is widely believed that true nagas created them as a servitor race, through crossbreeding, magic, or both, and indeed nagaji revere nagas as living gods.

Nagaji often inspire awe and fear among other humanoids, as much for their mysterious ancestry as for their talent for both swords and sorcery.

Most nagaji have scaly reptilian flesh—these scales are typically green, gray, or brown in hue, with colorful ridges of red, blue, or orange on their skulls or backs. Their ears and noses are flat, almost to the point of being nonexistent, while their eyes are those of serpents, ranging widely in color but tending toward golds, reds, yellows, and other warm hues. There are some nagaji who look much more human, with fine scales and even able to grow hair, usually braided to appear more human.

Nagaji society places honor, devotion, and dedication above all else. Less charitable observers from outside such societies might call the nagaji “born slaves,” but the nagaji do not think of themselves as slaves to their naga overlords and point to the fact that they are free to make their own life decisions. Furthermore, when a naga oversteps its bounds as ruler of its people, the nagaji are no strangers to resistance or outright rebellion.
