Based on dialogue from Lachlan, The Ash, it seems the Nāga have a long-standing hatred and rivalry with Garudas. The Naga have the ability to appear human and it is possible this is their natural form.
Being the snake-like beings they are, the Naga can summon a mouthful of jagged fangs filled with venom so deadly that one bite can kill the near invincible Garuda. In addition, it appears to have the ability to regenerate severed heads. This regeneration seems to be limited as for Lachlan's it was possible only four times.
It also appears that each head possesses a distinct identity, as Lachlan called his previous heads his "brothers" and referred to them in the third person.
Naga, (Sanskrit: "serpent") in Hinduism and Buddhism, a member of a class of semidivine beings, half human and half serpentine. They are considered to be a strong, handsome race who can assume either human or wholly serpentine form. They are regarded as being potentially dangerous but in some ways are superior to humans. In Buddhism, nagas are often represented as door guardians or, as in Tibet, as minor deities. In art, nagas are represented in a fully zoomorphic form, as hooded cobras but with from one to seven or more heads; as human beings with a many-hooded snake canopy over their heads; or as half human, with the lower part of their body below the navel coiled like a snake and a canopy of hoods over their heads.
