Ichchadhari Nag

AB357

Ichchadhari Nag(in)

Region of origin: India

A normal cobra who has lived until one hundred years of age and preserved its venom by not biting anyone is said to become an Ichchadhari Nag and gain the ability to turn into any other living being, often preferring to take the form of a human and live among them. In their snake-form, the Nag possessed a very valuable gem, or “mani,” formed over time from the venom they never used, and would hunt down and take revenge on a person who tried to steal it.
