Lizardfolk

The Native Inhabitants of the Marshes on the Eastern Edge of Selera, The Lizardfolk were conquered by Terrak at the end of a brutal war. Now, almost entirely enslaved, and still the lowest class of citizen when they aren’t, they are one of the commodities of House Grontos, which takes advantage of their brute strength in order to employ them for labor. Occasionally, some Lizardfolk escape, and join the Varden.

“Lizardfolk” is in some ways a slur. The original name that they gave themselves, and that the slavers make a point of not using, is “The Kymlam”. Kymlam culture reveres the Spirits of Nature. They have an alien system of morality, in which the most noble act is survival, and the most dishonorable act is self-sacrifice. Often, it is mentioned how a “Lizardman” would eat his own brother in order to survive, in order to demonstrate the race’s barbarism. And this, the Kymlam themselves do not deny. However, the sophisticated towns and structures that they once built speak otherwise.
