Jonathan's Numenera Game
A Nagaian matron living deep underneath Jyrek, Devola has devoted her incredibly long life to research regarding the future of her species. She understands that the absent attitude of her fellow matrons towards their young is what caused the Nagaia to almost go extinct, so although she is not able to ensure the survival of every single one of her children, she watches over at least a few of them as they awaken and hunt.
In addition to her research, she has worked with those outside her species to incubate and protect the nagaian sleepers. She has openly admitted to working with humans before, and is even able to speak the Truth, but humans are far from the only species that she has communicated with previously. Although she rarely moves from her underground lair and laboratory, she is capable of contacting other creatures through the various cyphers she wields with her tentacles.
