Chaos Comes to Mechanus
Of all the aberrant forms of life on Mechanus, the most feared is the Clockwork Naga. While Gond, god of Craft did not intentionally create these creatures, they arose out of the discarded and damaged gears and parts that are sent to be recycled and reused.
Some malevolent force of Chaos that counters Gond's strict laws imbued these cast away parts with resentment for their creators and the resulting agglomeration became a rampaging force of chaotic consumption. As it consumes more scrap metals and bio-materials, it shreds and adds what it consumes to its body. These newly added segments have different strengths/weaknesses based on what the Naga consumed. When these clockwork monstrosities escape the plane of Mechanus to cause havoc elsewhere, it is a tale for the Ages.
