The Nanderith first appeared approximately 6 million years before the start of the Guardians of the Divine. After the sun went micro nova, the landscape changed due to the radiation. Every form of life had its cell structure mutated. A species called the Danderith conceived the new species of Nanderith, and the Danderith went instinct shortly after their arrival. The Nanderith would soon become one of the apex predators in the realm; until another micro nova occurred. This paved the way for the rise of the Aanderith. The Nanderith numbers were devastated, but the underground and cave dwellers survived. Their population rebounded in central and east Hugrak. When the Fallen arrived, they praised them as their lords and would fight to the death to protect their masters.
Adult males between 4 ft 5 in to 5 ft 9 in tall in height, with an arm span that stretches from 7 ft 4 in to 8 ft 2 in. Female Nah’s are shorter at 4 ft 1 in to 4 ft 7 in, with smaller arm spans. Males that fight in the combat pits are capable of reaching weights up to 700 lb. The Nah’s facial structure is described as mandibular prognathism, that is, the mandible protrudes farther out than the maxilla. Adult Alpha and Beta males also have a prominent sagittal crest.
The Alpha Nah strength is roughly ten times its weight. The combined strength of two mature Alpha Nah is greater than that of twenty Manderith. They are capable of lifting 4,000 pounds over their heads and easily rip appendages off of a Manderith. Their weaknesses are a lack of intelligence and slow long-distance travelers.
The Beta Nah are the foot soldiers and guards for the Fay-trog and slave pits for the temples of Jebel, Trog, Alm, and Tello. They are willing to follow any order given to them by their Fallen lords. Even if it is for their sacrificial needs.
Typically the Gamma Nah’s are non-aggressive and shy mammals, but they will fight fiercely when forced into combat for their lord. They are strong and like to fight with their fists and arms in close combat. Although they prefer to use distance and shoot crossbows at their prey.
