King Irda

King Irda is a massive ha-naga nagaraja residing in the undercity of Alexandria. He is the last nagaraja king of Atzintli-Naga. His sister is Manasa-Naga.

He is trapped within the sacred gem Nagamani.

Vasuki (Sanskrit: वासुकी, वासव) is a Sanskrit name for a naga, one of the serpents of Buddhist and Hindu mythology. He is a great King of the nagas and has a gem (Nagamani) on his head. Manasa, another naga, is his sister. Vasuki is known in Chinese and Japanese mythology as being one of the "eight Great Naga Kings" (八大龍王 Hachi Ryuu-ou), amongst Nanda (Nagaraja), Upananda, Sagara (Shakara), Takshaka, Balavan, Anavatapta and Utpala.

Vasuki was also the name of the devout wife of the Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar.

The most famous legend in Hinduism in which Vasuki took part was the incident of Samudra manthan, the churning of the ocean of milk. In this legend, Vasuki allowed the devas (gods) and the asuras (demons) to bind him to Mount Mandar and use him as their churning rope to extract the ambrosia of immortality from the ocean of milk.

Vasuki is also mentioned and used as a tightening rope in other Hindu scriptures, such as in each of the Itihasas (Ramayana and Mahabharata).

In the Bhagavad-Gita (Chapter 10, Verse 28), in the middle of the battlefield "Kurukshetra," Krishna explains his omnipresence by proclaiming, "Of weapons I am the thunderbolt; among cows I am the surabhi. Of causes for procreation I am Kamdeva, the god of love, and of serpents I am Vasuki."

In Buddhist mythology, Vasuki and the other Naga Kings appear in the audience for many of the Buddha's sermons. The duties of the naga kings included leading the nagas in protecting and worshiping the Buddha, as well as in protecting other enlightened beings.

Vasuka (or Vasuki) is the name of a small Nair clan found near Mannarasala in Travancore. They claim that their ancestors were Nāga serpents spared when the Khandava Forest (in present day Punjab) was burnt down by Lord Krishna and Lord Arjuna.[1]

First king of Najara. The naga Terpenzi, slain by the Shadowking, returned as a powerful undead entity. Though it possesses power equal to that of exarchs, Terpenzi has been enslaved to the will of successive naga kings. It is bound by a relic called the Marlspire of Najara and holds the position of Guardian of Najara.

Once a great immortal naga, the founder (-361 DR[1]) and longtime ruler of Najara, Terpenzi lost its life and status long ago. After its demise, horrifying rituals bound its soul into its skeletal body. Through the power of the Marlspire of Najara, the ancient undead naga is completely subject to the will of the ruler of Najara. Terpenzi still cares about Najara, its former dominion, but it constantly tests the boundaries of control imposed on it by the Marlspire. Terpenzi lairs in the Snake Pit, the lowest point in the Underdark Najaran city of Ss’Khanaja, among the vast treasure of Jarant, the King of Snakes.

The Master was an ancient and powerful Vampire, the leader of the Order of Aurelius, a Vampire cult that worshiped the Old Ones, and also the sire of Darla. For centuries he sought to bring about the end of the world until he was stopped by Buffy Summers

As the leader of the Order of Aurelius, The Master is a ruthless overlord who expects total devotion from his followers. Minions who fail to carry out their objectives are brutalized by the Master himself or called upon to mutilate themselves in an act of penance. Despite his cold-hearted nature, the Master is prone to favoritism. His most treasured disciple is Darla, whom he views as a daughter.

Because of his extremely advanced age, the Master possessed superhuman strength, speed, and endurance far beyond those of common Vampires (even those as old as The Prince of Lies or Kakistos) and many other supernatural beings. In an alternate timeline created by a vengeance Demon, he was shown to successfully fight and slay the Slayer with relatively little effort although this Buffy was not trained by Giles, nor did she have the any passion for life; she was more or less similar to Faith. He is also known to have killed several previous slayers (including Buffy - at least temporarily, and the slayer he drained to perform his ritual to open the Hellmouth, and turning one - Yuki Makimura.) The turning of Yuki is likely non-canon, but there is no denying that the Master is capable of doing such a thing due to his extreme age and strength.

He also possessed psychic powers that allowed him to hypnotize his victims with the wave of a hand, thus taking control of their bodies and rendering them unable to move. Not even The Slayer was capable of resisting it.

The Master also is known to be a very adept sorceror and possessed a great deal of power and skill in both mental abilities (able to send his consciousness to different planes of existance - in order to cheat death, able to sense great phsycic and mystical forces, project his thoughts into victims dreams, aura-reading, and telepathy), as well as vast mystical powers - particularly a speciality in creating portals, opening The Hellmouth, summoning The Old Ones, and various forms of Self-Resurrection spells. He also possesses an intimate knowledge of dark rituals and prophesies - such as The Harvest, the rise of The Annointed, The Pergamum Codex's prediction of Buffy's death and his rise.
