Folio 09: Nukahnis
lizardfolk mummy lord druid (ancient guardian) 10
Inspired by a combination of an old NPC of mine, playing Anubis in Smite, and just a general love of lizardfolk, I present: Nukahnis!
Nature is not always kind, and for Nukahnis, her task was to guard her people against its worst effects. But as humans kept picking away at the swamp, draining it, staking a claim and pushing out the lizardfolk from the best hatching grounds, drastic measures were required. Invoking spirits whose names were only whispered in fear, Nukahnis willingly submitted herself to the little-used rite. Soaked in unguents, and left to suffocate in a deep tarry bog, Nukahnis arose with the power of disease and rot and her command, and the humans would be reminded forcefully that the marshes were no place for their kind.
