Epic of Serinor: Time of Chaos
A race spawned literally by dragons. They are created in a dark ritual that binds the dragon’s blood into a egg. These rituals are how the lizardman thralls are born among their kin of wyrmlings and dragons. They come in shades that match the chromatic dragons: bronze, gold, red, green and blue. Each color has a special habitat and propensity for the obscene. The lizardman are bred for nothing more than to do the bidding of their dragon lords. This complete subservience to dragons lead many races to view a lizardman as nothing more than a vanguard of a dragon invasion.
During the Age of Heroes, when the dragons disappeared from Serinor, the lizardmen found themselves alone in a hostile world. Without the constant, mental control of the dragons, they had to fend for themselves for the first time ever. These newly emancipated lizardmen did their best to sustain their race and preserve the traditions of the dragons. However, when the dragons returned, many found they enjoyed their freedom. Most returned to mindless thralldom, but some broke with the dragons and did their best to create a culture for freed lizardmen. Since breeding is done only through rituals with dragon’s blood, they often have to steal eggs or using their own blood which has such diluted dragon’s blood. One great hero of the freed lizardmen is Fuerte.
