As the N'Garai sought to invade Earth, their slave caste the Ru'Tai rebelled against their masters after being inspired by the actions of Wolverine who they revered as the Mai'keth and thus claimed back their dimension.

Overview

These demons were deadly with their blood, fangs and claws being poisonous. A N'Garai were extremely durable single-minded killing machines.

It was said that they were pure animals driven by instinct and rage with only savagery matching their own capable of defeating them. (X-Men v2 #75)

The top of their hierarchy consisted of the masters of their kind who were known as the Mabdhara.

The vast majority of N'Garai tended to be from their warrior caste who were not terribly intelligent but became much more organized when receiving orders from their Mabdhara generals. (X-Men Legacy v1 #260.1)

At one point, they held a slave caste known as the Ru'Tai that were used to build much of their empire. Claws of the Ru'Tai were sorcerous and could retard a person's healing factor. Unlike the N'Garai, they claimed to have vision and understood about the universal energy of balance. Their kind had a collective intelligence though some won the right of individuality and sense of self where they could adopt a name. One type of Ru'Tai were the Mongrels that were a warrior sect which walked on all fours. (X-Men v2 #75)

On Earth, they had mortal followers in the Camarilla of the N'Garai that had some of the most powerful demon sorcerers on the planet. (Marvel Preview v1 #7)

Notes

  • The N'Garai were created by Bill Mantlo, Chris Claremont, and Dave Cockrum where they made their first appearance in X-Men v1 #96 (December, 1975).
  • The Marvel Tarot v1 #1 (2007) that the dimension of the N’Garai was located in the Flickering Realms that was considered the dark heart of Chthon. There was said to be no map of this realm due to its constantly shifting landscape leading to danger everywhere.

Alternate Versions

In Adventures of the X-Men v1 #4 (1996), the N'Garai was shown to exist in an alternate reality that was designated as Earth-TRN566. The demons served waited for the prophecised time when they would be let loose on Earth and scour it of humanity and feast on the remains. Centuries ago, the family of Erich Zann were said to had made a pact with the N'Garai to tend to the great Cthulhu's true offspring the Dweller in the Darkness during its gestation until the day when the end of the world was set to occur. By the modern age, Kierrok recited the passage that would allow the demons to arrive and conquer the world with only the Book of R'yleh containing the spells needed to banishing them back to their dimension. The X-Men came to battle the demons with Cyclops unwittingly coming on the town where the ceremony was held where he came to convince Zann to lend his aid and the man decided to recite the counterspell knowing that it would banish him to oblivion along with the N'Garai which he did after seeing the courage of Scott Summers.
