The Naga are one of the primary races present in the world of Ashan. They are disciples of Shalassa, the Dragon of Water. Naga's made their first in-game appearance in Might & Magic: Heroes VI (Sanctuary faction). In addition they are mentioned in Heroes V and Dark Messiah, and have appeared in several pieces of official artwork.
Structures associated with their race, such as the Naga Temple, resemble Far Eastern architecture with an aquatic flavour. They also wield katana-like weapons, as evidenced in the Naga Silksword, along with Jason Felix and Adrian Smith's concepts.
Heroes V plansEdit
The Naga were, at one stage, planned to appear in the Academy, but were replaced by Rakshasas when it was decided to develop them as a focal race. Concept art for their prospective town, the Sanctuary, exists, and several unused models were left over in the data files, but they are not present in the game itself. They are also portrayed in concept art appearing in Heroes of Might and Magic Kingdoms. They appear as a playable race in Might and Magic: Heroes VI.
- A skeleton and an idle animation for the unfinished naga were found buried in the Heroes V resources.
