Skinks are a small and nimble breed of lizardfolk.
About 4 feet tall, fast and amphibious humanoid creatures with long tails and prominent headcrests, skinks are the backbone upon which lizardfolk society is built. Extremely agile and highly intelligent, they are unusual amongst the various different types of lizardfolk in that they are skilled in diplomacy with other races, scouting and learning magic.
They are excellent communicators, and often use not only vocalisations but also body language and subtle changes in the colouration of their crests to convey their wishes or needs to others of their species.

Variant: Chameleon Skink

Chameleon Skinks are a subspecies of Skink that have a number of peculiarities that distinguish them from others of their own kind. The Chameleons are much more aggressive than other Skinks and their role centers around scouting, infiltration, concealment and hunting. They stalk their prey through the jungles, whether that prey be food or intruder and are able to move to within yards of their target without being seen. This is chiefly due to their chameleonic skin that can shift in texture and color in a heartbeat to match the surrondings almost perfectly.

A chameleon skink has the following traits:

Ambusher. The skink has advantage on attack rolls against any creature it has surprised.

Chameleon Skin. The skink has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks made to hide.
