The Makara are the Beasts that embody the nightmares of the Depths. I suppose in this sense they are the most deserving of being called “Primordial.”
ANCIENT AND ETERNAL
As a manifestation of a Horror from the depths, one that has seen eons come and go when mankind was yet to exist, the Makara represent the fear of something that makes you insignificant to their time scale.
Anything you could do in your life, and could achieve is meaningless to a being of a Makara’s nature.
Makara Lairs are less playgrounds as much as they are traps. Their Lairs are most likely to manifest dangrous hazards that can kill victims unfortunate enough to be caught in them.
A Makara can impose a crushing claustrophobia or sense of drowning on their victim. This manifests as a -2 penaly on all Physical actions for one turn on anyone within (Lair x 10 ) feet. This is selective and the Makara can choose to exclude specific characters caught in the area of effect.
The Makara are an interesting beast, but perhaps one of the hardest to understand. Sea Serpents and the Leviathan are ancient fears, but perhaps the most immediately relatable form that the Makara actually portray is the fear of drowning.
