A naga that has trained in the use of magic, trailed by an eldritch nimbus. It is especially skilled in spells dealing with poison and venom.

“Amongst the deities and Asuras and celestial Rishis, O amiable lady, the Nagas are endued with great energy. Possessed of great speed, they are endued again with excellent fragrance. They deserve to be worshipped. They are capable of granting boons. Indeed, we too deserve to be followed by others in our train. I tell thee, O lady, that we are incapable of being seen by human beings.”
-Mahābhārata, Santi Parva, Mokshadharma Parva, section CCCLX. ca. 500 B.C.
trans. Kisari Mohan Ganguli, 1883.

Naga magi know some of the most dangerous Poison Magic spells and can deal heavy physical damage as well. Often found in packs with other nagas, they're a bigger threat than most things in the Snake Pit, but guardian serpents and nagarajas should be a higher priority.
