Lizards are a race of people in the shape of humanoid lizards. They are a born race of warriors, with large powerful bodies given them great strength. Based on their appearance, coarse temperament and the preferred insect diet of Great Hollow lizards, many people stereotype them as barbaric. But, in fact, lizards are an intelligent, highly civil race who adhere strictly to tradition.
