Makara are quite unusual amphibious creatures native to the waters of Marapur. They look like a cross between a hippopotamus and a seahorse, but are clearly comparable to the former in size. In earlier times, the makara were often domesticated by the nagas to serve as pack and working animals. However, when the nagas discovered that the giant beavers native to Marapur were easier to tame and less costly to care for and feed, they turned away from domesticating makara. So nowadays, most makara can be found living in the wild. However, they seldom come to the surface, mostly they stay under water, often in already sunken naga ruins.
Makaras have 5050 hitpoints. They cannot be paralysed. Moreover, they are strong against fire and ice damage. On the other hand, they are weak against death, earth, energy and physical damage. These creatures can neither be summoned nor convinced. In addition, they are able to sense invisible creatures.
Makaras yield 5720 experience points. They carry platinum coins and sometimes other items with them.
