Type Outsider
(chaotic, extraplanar, Protean, shapechanger)
Environment Maelstrom

The naunet (pronounced now-NEHT)[1] is the warrior caste of the protean race. They are the most common and populous type of protean and they embody the rage that the proteans feel for every plane of existence except for the Maelstrom.[2] They are often to be found patrolling near the borders of the Maelstrom ready to fight against invaders from Heaven, Hell, or Axis, or preparing to infiltrate one of those planes. These proteans are very aggressive and prone to attack those from other planes on sight. Being in an ordered plane drives them into a particular fury.[3]

Naunets appear as reptilian beings with muscle-bound arms that end in wicked claws and the lower body of a snake. They also have two tentacles which end in snapping jaws. The bites of these tentacles cause confusion in non-chaotic creatures. They have a variety of physical attacks and three or more naunets working together can create clouds of roiling chaos.[2]
