Residents of the warmer regions, lizans prefer forests and jungles, but will also inhabit deserts, badlands and even swamps if the need is great.
Civilized and urbane, lizans are some of the oldest civilized peoples of the "Dark Continent". They have multiple city-states and once held mighty empires in the distant past.
Lizans resemble humans with clawed fingers and toes; carnivore's teeth; elongated, narrow, dextrous tongues; slit-pupiled eyes with no visible sclera (whites), flexible reptilian tails, human-like faces, and bodies covered completely in a layer of flexible, tightly-meshed scales. Some lizans are bald, but most sport hair, a result of interbreeding with demihumans and the human newcomers. Bald and hair-sporting lizans can both sometimes sport horns in various numbers, shapes and patterns.
As is the standard for Drakken type monsters, lizans are functionally a race of shemales; a cloaca under the tail serves as an organ for breeding and excretion, whilst a vagina-like slit at the front actually contains a retractile and often quite sizable penis.
All lizans sport wide, feminine hips, full buttocks, and breast-like lumps on their chest; these "pseudo-breasts" have no nipples, but the scales on them are particularly soft and sensitive, making them very receptive to stimulation. Paizuri is as pleasurable for a lizan to give as to receive.
Most of the time, these breasts are small and lizans are quite drably colored. When they enter "mating season", which happens when they have access to sufficient food, their scales brighten with vivid colors and their breasts expand considerably - usually, the bigger they are outside of mating season, the bigger they will be in season. Lizans can reach enormously busty proportions, equivalent to minotaurs in some cases.
Breasts are used as a mating display. Uniquely, they actually also serve as a tool for dominance; the bustier lizan is the one who will penetrate and thus inseminate.
