Shivanya and her cousin Shesha are female shape-shifting serpents, or Ichchhadhari Naagins, who want to avenge Shivanya's parents' death. There were five murderers, but Shivanya was able to see only three of them: Ankush, Viren and Shailesh. They killed Shivanya's parents in a failed attempt to attain a precious gem with magical powers called the Naagmani.
As part of her revenge, Shivanya enters into Ankush's house as a maiden. Ankush's son Ritik, a kind-hearted and joyful young man, subsequently falls in love with Shivanya. Upon finding out about Ritik's feelings for her, Shivanya marries him for revenge. Later, she kills Viren (the first murderer) and Shailesh (the third murderer); Shivanya and Shesha also kill Ankush's friend Suri, when Shivanya learns from Shesha that Suri is the fourth murderer.
Shivanya soon realises that Ritik is really a good person, and that he is unaware of his father's evil doings. Shivanya eventually falls in love with him, much to the disappointment of Shesha, who thinks that Shivanya won't be able to kill Ankush because of her love for his son, Ritik.
Later, it is revealed that Ankush's wife, Yamini, is the fifth murderer, and that Ritik is her fraternal nephew. Yamini and Ankush had kidnapped Ritik's real father Sangram Singh, as only Ritik and his father could touch the Naagmani because of a sign on their bodies.
Shesha begins falling for Ritik because of his loving and caring nature; however, she does not let her feelings affect her actions. Upon learning about Shesha's feelings for Ritik, Yamini, who found out that Shivanya and Shesha are shape-shifting serpents, tricks Shesha into betraying Shivanya. This causes Shesha to become Shivanya's enemy, due to Shesha's obsession for Ritik and the Naagmani. Shivanya manages to kill Ankush; however, Ritik witnesses this, finds out that Shivanya is a serpent, and begins simultaneously loving and hating her.
Ritik soon learns the truth about Yamini being evil, and joins with Shivanya to protect the Naagmani. Shivanya and Ritik consummate their marriage, leading to Shivanya losing her powers. However, she and Ritik succeed in saving the Naagmani and killing Yamini, while Shesha is jailed by the Mahishmatis named Avantika and Vikram. This season ends with Shivanya becomes pregnant.
Three months after the events of the first season, Shivanya gives birth to a healthy baby girl, Shivangi, despite being six months early.
- 25 years later
A widowed Shivanya doesn't want Shivangi to become an Icchadhari Naagin to protect the Naagmani. A saint tells Shivanya that this can be avoided by getting Shivangi married before she turns 25. Rocky, the fiancè of Shesha and the adopted nephew of Yamini, falls in love with Shivangi. Unaware of Rocky's relation to Yamini, Shivanya arranges for him to marry Shivangi.
On the day of the wedding, Shesha, Yamini, Avantika, Kapalika, Vikram, Amar, Manav and Nidhi kills the wedding guests (including Shivangi's family) and fatally stabs Shivanya. Yamini informs Rocky about the deaths, blaming them on dacoits. Rocky feels heartbroken.
The saint informs Shivangi, who escaped from Yamini's gang, about Shivanya's life, and tells her that only she can touch the Naagmani. She sees the faces of the murderers, including someone she believes to be Rocky. Shivangi attempts to commit suicide; however, she survives and becomes a Naagin. She vows to protect the Naagmani and avenge her mother.
After a few days, it's Rocky and Shesha's wedding day. Shivangi comes to Rocky's home for revenge. Everyone is shocked to see her alive; however, Yamini and Shesha accept her, due to Shivangi being the only one who could touch the Naagmani, and Yamini has Shivangi marry Rocky.
On the day of Karwa Chauth, Nidhi, the 8th murderer of Shivanya attacks Shivangi. Rocky saves Shivangi, making her realize that Rocky is innocent. Later, Shivangi kills the rest of Shivanya's murderers.
Shesha and Yamini learn that Shivangi is a Naagin, and that she killed all of Shivanya's murderers. Shivangi turns Shesha into a statue and kills Yamini. Shivangi finds that Yamini, Mahendra (Rocky's father), and Rocky's friend Tanya's family included Manjusha (Tanya's mother) and Ranveer (Tanya's father) killed Ritik; additionally, they want the Naagmani. Rocky turns into an Icchadhari Naag (a male version of what Shivangi is) on his 27th birthday. Rocky helps Shivangi in killing all the murderers of Ritik. Later, Rocky inexplicably stabs Shivangi.
Suddenly, Ritik (Shivangi's father) who is now revealed to be alive is the one who sayed to Rocky that he did the right thing that he obeyed his orders and killed Shivangi. Shivangi had to die. This season ends with this.
Shivangi dies without getting to know why her father and husband betrayed her by plotting her murder. However, she vows to come back for her revenge.
Elsewhere in an old Haveli, Ruhi – another Naagin, having gained the ability to shape-shift after hundred years of penance, dances with her lover Vikrant under the moonlight in the joy of their much anticipated union. However, business tycoon Andy Sehgal's spoiled sons Yuvi and Adi along with Yuvi's friends- Rehan, Daksh, RJ (Yuvi's brother-in-law) and Karan (Yuvi's family manager) arrive there drunk and misbehave with Ruhi and attempt to rape her, while Vikrant takes his Naag avatar to scare them off, but an agitated Adi shoots Vikrant who supposedly dies.
Ruhi vows to avenge her lover's death from the 6 murderers (Yuvi, Adi, Karan, Daksh, Rehan and RJ) along with the tag-alongs- Pratham, Bultu, Anu (Rehan's sister) and Mahir (Yuvi's elder brother). With Shivji's blessings, Ruhi performs a ritual and sheds off her skin to acquire a new identity to materialize her revenge- "Bela". What folows is Bela's quest to avenge her assault and gradually getting to know the real faces and intentions of people around her as she herself becomes the Queen of her clan and finds true love in Mahir.
- Mouni Roy (Seasons 1, 2 and 3) as Shivanya and Shivangi (Double Role, both shape-shifting serpents or Ichchhadhari Naagin with golden textured snake skin)
- "Naagin" Shivanya of Shesh-Naag Clan / Shivanya Singh "Suryavanshi"
- The protagonist of Season 1, Shivanya is the daughter of a shape-shifting serpent couple belonging to the Shesh-Naag Clan, and hence, by birth, she is a shape-shifting snake-woman, acclaimed as Naagin. She avenged her parents' deaths from the murderers (Viren, Suri, Shailesh, Ankush and Yamini); and married "Prince" Ritwik Singh of Suryavanshi dynasty, and had Shivangi as their daughter. Shivanya, along with Ritwik, served as the guardian of the mystical gem Naagmani, and when Ritwik was killed by conspirators while protecting the same, Shivanya gave up on her supernatural serpent powers and relocated for her daughter's sake. 25 years later, on the day of Shivangi's prospective wedding with Rocky, she was brutally stabbed multiple times and killed by her arch-rivals - Yamini and Shesha (along with Avantika, Kapalika, Vikram, Amar, Manav and Nidhi).
- "Naagin" Shivangi Singh "Suryavanshi"
- The protagonist of Season 2, Shivangi, who is the daughter of Ritwik and Shivanya, is the last inheritor of the Suryavanshi dynasty, on her father's line; and a shape-shifting snake-woman (acclaimed as Naagin) belonging to the Shesh Naag Clan, on her mother's lineage. She got married to Rocky Singh, Yamini's foster grand-child (later revealed to be an inheritor of the Takshak Naag Clan of shape-shifting serpents). Initially with the aid of Rudra and later with Rocky's help, Shivangi avenged her parents deaths from the murderers (in order- Amar, Kapalika, Manav, Vikram, Avantika, Nidhi, Ranveer, Manjusha, Mahendra, Yamini and Shesha), and like her parents, she too served as a guardian of the mystical Naagmani. However, she was tragically killed by Rocky on her father Ritwik's command (who had traveled forward in time). Roy made a cameo as a dying Shivangi in the opening scene of Season 3.
- Arjun Bijlani (Seasons 1 and 2) as Ritwik Singh and Sangram Singh (Double Role, both having "Suryavanshi" lineage)
- "Prince" Ritwik Singh "Suryavanshi" of Panchner
- Sangram Singh's son and the sole inheritor of the Suryavanshi dynasty (bestowed upon with the responsibility to protect the Naagmani alongside the guardian serpents), Ritwik was adopted by his paternal aunt Yamini after she tried to kill his father (causing him to go into a hiding), only to use Ritwik as a pawn to get the precious Naagmani. Later, Ritwik married Shivanya and with her help, got to know Yamini's true malicious intentions and his real parentage. Then she stood by her in her quest to avenge her parents' murderers alongside protecting the Naagmani. He became Shivangi's father, and was soon supposedly killed, as per Yamini's orders, by some greedy people (Mahendra, Manjusha and Ranveer) aspiring for the Naagmani. He however made a special appearance in the last episode of Season 2, where he was shown to have traveled forward in time, prompting his future son-in-law Rocky to stab her daughter Shivangi with a trident, thus causing her death for some inexplicable benefit of the world.
- Bijlani also played Ritwik's father, (former King) Sangram Singh "Suryavanshi" of Panchner. He was Yamini's elder brother who was attempted to be murdered by Yamini for satisfying her own vengeance and ill intentions to achieve the supreme power of the Naagmani, causing him to go into a hiding, only to be rescued by Shivanya. He then finally got to meet his long-lost son, Ritwik and come together with them to bring Yamini's downfall. Bijlani (as Ritwik) had a main role in Season 1, while he essayed the supporting character of Sangram Singh as well. However, his appearance in Season 2 was limited to brief cameo scenes in the first and last episodes, and in flashbacks in-between.
- "Naagin" Shesha of Shesh-Naag Clan / "Ruchika" (pseudonym)
- The primary antagonist of Seasons 1 and 2, Shesha is Shivanya's maternal cousin and like her, she is also a shape-shifting snake-woman, acclaimed as Naagin. Initially Shesha assisted Shivanya in her revenge mission against her parents' culprits, but later on seeds of greed for power, position and money (that can be obtained by usurping the Naagmani) were inculcated in her mind by Yamini. This combined with her passion for Ritwik led her to betray her sister Shivanya and she joined hands with Yamini, and emerged as Shivanya's and later on, Shivangi's ultimate nemesis. By the end of Season 1, Shivanya managed to get rid of Shesha by trapping her in the kingdom of the "Mahishmatis", people belonging to the "Chandravanshi" clan or Lunar dynasty. Later, their queen, Avantika joined hands with Shesha, freeing her from captivity. The two along with a resurrected Yamini became the deadly villainous trio of Season 2, where a 118-year-old Naagin Shesha took the pseudonym of "Ruchika" and wanted to marry her new love interest Rocky alongside her dream of achieving the Naagmani and becoming the most powerful Naagin. However, her plans were foiled by Shivanya's daughter Shivangi after she and Yamini viciously killed Shivanya.
- Shesha is acknowledged as the "Kaali Naagin" (literally the black serpent) due to her pitch-black textured snake skin while in her Naagin form. Shesha later gained immense powers by pleasing Lord Shiva on performing an auspicious dance ritual before the Shivalinga and transformed into a "Panchmukhi Naagin" (literally five-headed serpent). However she was tactfully turned into stone by Shivangi on directing the terminated Takshak Naag Clan's Queen Takshika's gaze on her. She managed to make a return and assumed the title of "Takshika", with a new alternate red-black striped mane and additional wings. She thus became immortal upon raising to the rank of the "Queen of Takshak Naag Clan", which she did by resurrecting and then killing the reigning Queen Takshika at Mount Takshak, all with Yamini's help. She was finally killed by Shivangi and Rocky in the divine form of Ardhanarishvara, by first spinning to drain all her blood (having Takshika's immortality) and then transferring it in an alternate dimension; leaving behind the ashes of a deceased Shesha, who was thus finally punished for her crimes.
- Sudha Chandran (Seasons 1 and 2) as Yamini Singh Raheja
- "Princess" Yamini Singh "Suryavanshi" of Panchner / Yamini Raheja
- An extremely greedy and opportunistic woman by nature, Yamini hails from the royal family of Panchner and belongs to the Suryavanshi clan or Solar dynasty. She is Sangram Singh's younger sister whom she attempted to murder (and thought to have succeeded in doing so), in order to emerge as the sole inheritor of her family's wealth and to satisfy her endless greed by usurping the Naagmani. She married her family's gardener Ankush Raheja after he got himself involved in her plan. However, when she failed to grasp the Naagmani, she adopted her fraternal nephew Ritwik only to use him as a pawn to get the precious Naagmani. However, her intentions were foiled by Shivanya who returned to avenge the death of her parents, also killed by Yamini. She then joined hands with Shesha and plotted against Shivanya with her. However, Yamini was finally killed by Shivanya, only to be resurrected by Avantika. Years later, the three of them (Yamini, Shesha and Avantika), along with their other allies, stabbed Shivanya to death. Yamini was also the conspirator behind Ritwik's death.
- One of the primary antagonists to the series, the character of Yamini also served as the occasional comic relief in the show. In Season 2, Yamini was re-introduced as "Namrata Devi Nikanj", Rocky's adoptive grandmother and matriarch of her foster Nikanj family. She got Rocky married to Ritwik-Shivanya's daughter Shivangi to fulfill her aspirations for the Naagmani, as Shivangi was the only pure-hearted one belonging to the Suryavanshi dynasty capable of touching the gem. She was ultimately killed by Shivangi and Rocky by lifting her with their tails and allowing her to fall straight down on a holy trident, putting an end to all her crimes and scheming.
- Aashka Goradia (Seasons 1 and 2) as Rani Avantika (Queen of the Mahishmatis and a shape-shifting honey-bee or Ichchhadhari Madhumakkhi)
- "Bee-Queen" Avantika "Mahishmati" of the "Chandravanshi" Clan
- Aside from Shesha and Yamini, Avantika is the third main antagonist of Season 2, and formed a deadly trio of villains with the former two. She is an Ichchhadhaari Madhumakkhi or a shape-shifting honeybee, and rules over the Mahishmati Kingdom, primarily inhabited by her follower honey bees. She hails from the Chandravanshi clan or Lunar dynasty, which is rival to the Suryavanshi clan or Solar dynasty (Shivangi's father, Ritwik's lineage). She got married to the original "Mahishmati King" and seized his powers, emerging as supremely powerful, even to the extent of resurrecting a dead person with her powers (as she did to Yamini). She got married to his slave-general, Vikram, raising him to the status of the "King of Mahismatis". She initially seemed to be unconquerable, and joined hands with Shesha and Yamini to usurp the Naagmani's powers and committed many crimes including Shivanya's murder to maintain her association with Shesha and Yamini to achieve her goal, the Naagmani. Avantika was the main powerhouse of Yamini's team but was later, stabbed to death by Shivangi (who avenged her mother's death), using a magical dagger. Goradia had a guest role in Season 1 before gaining a main role in Season 2.

- Rocky was introduced as the eldest son of Yamini's foster family and hence, Yamini's adoptive grandson. He fell in love with and subsequently married Shivangi, unbeknownst to her revenge mission. He was Ruchika's love interest as well. Rocky was initially caring and supportive towards Shivangi, but later when her Naagin identity was revealed, Yamini manipulated him into believing that Shivangi was responsible for causing the numerous deaths in the Nikanj family and was their ill-wisher. This led Rocky to hate Shivangi intensely and his depression triggered his transformation into an winged Ichchhadhaari Naag (or shape-shifting serpent) on his 27th birthday. He then got to know his real identity, that he was the prominent heir to the throne of the Takshak-Naag Clan, arch-rival of the Shesh-Naag Clan of shape-shifting serpents, to which Shivangi belonged. The two had to go through a few more trials to reunite and kill their enemies, most prominently Yamini and Shesha. However, at the end of Season 2, Rocky, following Ritwik's command, inexplicably stabbed Shivangi to death.
- Kinshuk Mahajan (Season 2) as "Naag" Rudra
- Rudra is an experienced Ichchhadhaari Naag or shape-shifting serpent with blue textured snake skin. He was Shivangi's helpmate in her revenge mission in the initial days and saved her identity and intentions from being discovered, especially by the hands of Shesha, on numerous occasionsa. His frequent affiliations with Shivangi for their mssion's sake caused Rocky to get jealous of him and led kim to even suspect Shivangi of having an affair with him. Rudra's motive or real reason behind aiding Shivangi was to get his own revenge from the Nikanj family for defending Amar Nikanj in the case when he murdered Rudra's wife. Rudra's real intentions were discovered by Shesha who then plotted with Yamini and Avantika, a way to commit Rudra's murder. They tricked him and got him trapped in King Sangram Singh's castle at Panchner, where he was subsequently killed by Avantika. Shivangi then vowed to avenge her true friend, Rudra's death from the culprits as well.

She initially seemed to be the docile and hardworking daughter of a poor peasant, but that was an act she put on to intrude into the Sehgal family. She got engaged to Yuvi, but instead got married married to Mahir, becoming the Sehgal family’s elder daughter-in-law, while fulfilling her revenge mission by gradually killing the culprits with Vishakha's help. Bela was earlier out to avenge Vikrant’s murder (which was later revealed to have never happened). She fell in love with Mahir, and has taken over the responsibiliry to protect the Naagmani from unidentified enemies.
- Anita Hassanandani (Season 3) as Vishakha aka "Vish"
- "Naagin" Vishakha of Shesh-Naag Clan / "Vishakha Khanna" aka "Vish" (pseudonym)
- The primary antagonist of Seasons 3, Vishakha is "Naag-Rani" Bela's subordinate cum friend and like her, she is also a shape-shifting snake-woman, acclaimed as Naagin. She hails from the Shesh-Naag Clan of shape-shifting serpents and has crimson-textured snake skin. The sassy and glamorous Vish initially seemed to be assisting Bela in her mission to avenge her assault and Vikrant's supposed death from the six prominent culprits (Yuvi, Adi, Rehan, Karan, RJ and Daksh), however, was soon revealed to be aiming for the supreme power of the Naagmani, with which she wants to become the "Naag-Rani" herself, replacing Bela. The entire murder incidence and the assault that Bela had experienced was actually a vicious plan chalked out by Vish and Vikrant to mislead Bela to commit a crime (by killing an innocent person like Mahir), making her to lose all her powers, her title as the "Naag-Rani", leaving her incapable of anymore protecting the Naagmani. But, before anything such happened, Bela realized her love for Mahir and that he was innocent, foiling their plans.
- The cunning and deceitful Vishakha also took the pseudonym of "ACP Ramola Raichand" to trick ACP Ajitabh (who has genuine feelings for her) to act as a pawn in her scheme and ended up killing him. She, along with Vikrant, also viciously killed Bela's mother,"Naag-Rani Maa". Her actions led her to be cursed by the former two to have a tormenting death, for two times even! She was then revealed to have romantic feelings for Vikrant, but was killed by him after he found her to be of no use any longer for his ploy. However, she was able to be resurrected and later with Bela's help, Vishakha became Vikrant's wife.
- Pearl V Puri (Season 3) as Mahir Sehgal
- Andy Sehgal's eldest son with Sumitra, Mahir is a hard-working, righteous and caring person, and a businessman, by profession. Mahir is quite the doting elder brother to his siblings Yuvi and Kuhu, and his half-brothers Adi and Pratham; and unlike them, he is virtuous and responsible in nature. He got married to Bela after Yuvi went missing on the wedding day, but over couse of time, he has developed romantic feeling for Bela, the intensity and pureness of his love having prompted Bela to fall in love with Mahir as well.
- Rajat Tokas (Season 3) as "Naag" Vikrant of Vibhor-Naag Clan
- A shape-shifting serpent belonging to the Vibhor-Naag Clan, Vikrant was Ruhi's initial snake companion and soulmate, with chestnut brown colored snake skin. He was apparently killed by the six murderers (Yuvi, Adi, Rehan, Karan, RJ and Daksh), however this was later revealed to be a vicious plan chalked out by him (along with Vish) to mislead Bela to commit a crime (by killing an innocent person like Mahir), making her to lose all her powers, her title as the "Naag-Rani", leaving her incapable of anymore protecting the Naagmani. Vikrant actually aspires for the supreme power of the Naagmani, and wants to bestow the title of "Naag-Rani" upon her mother (actually Poulomi). He wants to sit on the throne as the ruler of all the shape-shifting serpents in the entirety (hence he poisoned Bela's mother, "Naag-Rani Maa" and later killed her with Vishakha's help). He too wants to make Bela his wife, so, he returned after 10 months of the aforementioned incident(in the disguise of Yuvi) to acquire the mystical Naagmani as well as Bela, assuming the role of a primary antagonist to the series. He later became Vishakha's husband.
