Was talking with a friend while drawing that last naga picture and I did realize everyone and their damn grandmother does naga anatomy differently. SOO here’s a basic summary of how Alra’s anatomy works.
Step I: Mouth
Yeah I get asked how my elvish naga do vore all the god damn time, and to answer that question: just like snakes do. Alra can very easily unhinge his jaw and stretch his mouth wide to accommodate objects larger than his head. The flesh on his cheeks is extremely stretchable, enough that he’d probably be really good at doing that marshmallow challenge. He has no chewing teeth, just sharp teeth to hold prey in place - he has no venom, being a constrictor though there’s the rare individual of his kind that has venom to go along with that.
Step II: Organs
Alright, I’m going to level with the lot of you - I have a certain pet peeve with how the snake half of a naga is utilized, sometimes changes make sense, sometimes I just have to wonder if there is /anything/ in that half at all with some designs. Alra has two sets of lungs and two hearts - he’s a biiig boy, and pumping all that blood and oxidizing it would be really heart with just one set. Moreover that stomach in his upper half? No digestive properties, in fact the upper set of lungs actually gives that stomach some air depending on what he keeps in it. The stomach in the tail is where all the magic happens.
Also adding to how the vore factor works, Alra is fucking /huge/. Most people would only be as tall as his elf-half’s torso. Keep in mind that the full snake-naga that run him as a breeding business are even BIGGER than that. Naturally however some of his kind will be smaller than him, some a little bigger, comes with how they’re bred.
Also, none of this “back butt” going on here - Alra gets rid of his waste just like normal, through a vent on the end of his tail. If you wanna do him in the A, gonna have to go for that.
Step III: Junk and Gender
Alra’s sexual organs are at his front below his human half, he’s technically /both/ genders. (This trait just so he can breed with virtually any set of full-snake naga. Also makes breeding his kind for pretty colors rather easy. Either way he could just as easily identify as a female or male - but he does strictly male. None of this “herm” or “xyr” or any of that unless you’re keen on pissing him off.) Other things related to this: NO BOOBS. No nipples. None of dat shit. One, because I hate em’, and two because I don’t see the point of it with his setup.
As for other things here’s a short list:
- Alra’s kind are bred for different colors, he is ice-white, no patterns, no color changes in him. This doesn’t make him “albino” but it does make him extremely valuable. Naga in his world are alll about being born “pretty”, think in the same vein how buying a normal ball python vs. buying a morph is here in the real world. Even being the bottom bitch he is Alra’s got desirable colors, which means he’s treated a bit better.
- Alra can very easily breed with full-snake naga (if you’re wondering what I mean by that, its literally anthro naga, snake with arms and torso and all dat shit) and is often forced to do so in the hopes offspring he makes will also be full snake, if they aren’t the babies are usually thrown out when hatched if they aren’t a pretty color. Because they get taken away so damn quick he has zero attachment to any eggs he’s forced to make. Side note on this one: full-snake eggs are goddamn HUGE and goddamn HEAVY, so they’re easy to pick out - nooot so fun for Alra to carry around, however.
- In the pecking order of things in Alra’s universe it usually goes like this: Full Snake Naga = Reptilian Anthro > Other anthro > Alra > humans/elves. etc. This isn’t true for EVERYWHERE on his planet, some places have elven or human kingdoms just fine, some places have mammal anthros in full control and all that. But noobody really likes each other. Not really.
- How did such a cross-breed freakshow happen? Well, thusfar most of how the hell it happened is lots of legends and myths and what-have-yous. Some suggest that the gods gave elves a new step in their evolution, which made them part snake, and then gave the best people among THOSE elves a “pristine” form which was full snake with none of this mammal business in the way. However other civilizations treat the cross as some sort of curse on a full-snake naga for trying to mate with an elf etc etc. Nobody’s really sure how the hell that happened.
AAAND that’s my word vomit for today, enjoy and feel free to throw me any questions if you somehow read all this shit.
This is awesome information and an awesome character. 8D Do you RP with him?
