Lizardfolk, Twilight Paragon (3.5e Racial Paragon Class)
From D&D Wiki
Twilight Lizardfolk Paragon
Spending all their time in the trees in otherwise uninhabited ares, twilight lizardfolk are as much wild as the unintelligent creatures around them. They have bonded with nature to the point that even their arcane magics come from nature itself, giving it a divine power. They have a dual nature: one part sorcerer and the other druid. Members of the race the truly embody both aspects of their natural magics become paragons.
