Quoth the Mahoraga:

“Halt! Who goes there? Do you feel yourself worthy to cross over into Mandara? Then prove yourself worthy, by defeating me in battle. Else die trying…”

Kith Excerpt:

Called Mahoraga (male), Mahoragi (female), – Mahoraga as a whole, this Tribe of Cobra Peri (Vedic Fae) are the keepers of sacred water, and the militant force that protects the whole of the Perfumed Empire. The Janajaati (Kith) are Saanp (Serpent) born-dreams of a time long before this realities turn of the wheel. Much like their Naga cousins, Brahma the Creator commanded the Mahoraga armies to guard the worlds from evil men, but while the Naga are remembered as Near-Gods, the Mahoraga are skulking assassins who strike evil from afar.

In this they share stories with their cousins, the tribe of Moon and River Children also known as the Naga. This family of Changing Breeds is a Tribe of Were-Cobras and shares more than a few similarities to the Janajaati Tribe. Many of the two tribes have even intermarried in the hopes of strengthening the blood-lines. Although, the Janajaati do admit that the Were-Cobra Tribe is one of destitute self-inflicted torture. Blood-shed and murder is the whole of their existence. The Mahoraga Peri disagree with this lifestyle, despite the blood loyalties.

There is a strong distinction between those who love war and those who promote peace by being ready for war. The Mahoraga fall into this latter category. No Mahoraga seeks violence for violence’s sake, and many would hang up their weapons for promise of peace. Yet the years of Invasion and war, slaughter of innocent Indian lives, and the Bure Sapane Ka Saptaah of 99’ highlight just how prepared the Mahoraga Janajaati have to be.



“‘Who is Naga?’ said he. ‘I am Naga. The great God Brahm put his mark upon all our people, when the first cobra spread his hood to keep the sun off Brahm as he slept. Look, and be afraid!'”
– Rudyard Kipling, “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi”
