Appearance The nnar', an undead reptilian beast much like that of a skeletal dragon, is the servant and vassal of Hell. The build of the nnar' favors that of the groundrake in being wingless, four legged and bulky. Instead of webbed or feathered wings, they have rows of spikes down their broad back, large taloned paws and eye-sockets that are cruel but lifeless, burning with undead flame. Some have a faint reddish glow to them; but more often not. Their jaws are filled to the brim with serrated fangs and they have spikes on either side of their face, curling down their sides and culminating to a large, bony club at the base of their tail. As their description suggests, no meat covers the fleshless bones, and organs have long since rotted away.
Culture Being summoned creatures, they have very little intelligence. The finding of one who can think for itself is very rare and almost unheard of. Originally from Hell, they were brought by the undead from there into Evylon by Kairn and also one of his creations. Without someone to keep them together and control them, they mostly stay by themselves. These creatures are more liable to get into a fight with another nnar' out of instinct than a cause. They have a tendency to wander around the different Realms but are mostly found in swamplands, forest, and underground caverns.
Abilities These beasts are most efficient killers, using both tooth, claw and horn to mutilate and gore whomever gets in their way. When ordered or provoked, they go into a rage and attempt to crush everything in their path. However, when needed, they have one other weapon at their disposal; fangs that hold a special type of venom in them that can paralyze their target and it slowly eat away at the bloodstream like an acid, utilizing magical ability to suck life away with minimal physical damage, evaporating the blood and devouring it entirely.
Violation of the One’s creations was one of Death’s favorite things, to turn his counterpart's beloved dragons into his own vengeful toys. Nothing brought the god better pleasure than rending the sniveling mockery of their image in twain. Scowling down upon one such creature, he loosed a hellish flame upon it, scorching it away until only bones were left. Death envisioned a way to defile their bodies further; and he slew several others in much the same way. He would not yet let them rest in peace where they lay, and a malevolent grin spread across the god’s twisted visage as he set to work.
Enfusing death into the charred dragon bones he brought the beast up, molding it in his version of perfection. He took from it those glorious wings the dragons so loved, breaking them into small bits until he was satisfied with their destruction. With the remnant bones, he took them to craft the pieces from head to tail in the form of large spikes, ending with a clubbed mace at the end of its tail. Taking the essence of the fleeing souls, he forged it into a single, volatile spirit and infused it within the bones, watching delightfully as life was birthed in the unnatural creature.
You are First of the Nnar', Death intoned, clicking his claws as the ungainly creature looked around. I give to you paralytic venom to halt your foe in their tracks paired with a bite that can easily eat away at the bloodstream like an acid evaporating and devouring it entirely. A magical ability to suck away their life without harm to their body.) Go forth and inspire terror, my creation; to you I leave the destruction of all that is good to! Be joined by many, and lead them all to Hell!
Other dragons he slew, as many as he could find - then he moved to lesser creatures, forging them into the nnar' as well. It wasn't long before his methods were adopted by necromancers in his name, and even after the destruction of the First Realm and the creation of others, nnar' can still be found. Though many are in Hell, terrorizing the dead, necromancers of all types have created them in other Realms… and they still inspire terror, wherever they may roam.
