Until around ten thousand years after there missing. They started showing up again. Their origins are unknown. Some believe they are humans blessed by the dragon god, or good Bahamut, in order to protect the humans from the chromatic dragons. Others think that they are simply a subrace of dragonborn that evolved to be more serpent-like. They are known to be cold-blooded similar to how reptiles are.

Females of this race tent to be larger than the males and take care of most of the hunting, protecting and caretaking, while the males take care of more of the trading with other humanoid races since they are slightly smaller than the females.
