In other words, Lizard men or the more gender neutral -- Lizardfolk. They still insist on calling themselves the Varissai. They have created a small kingdom, compared to the size of Anaxamandras, that boards on the east side of the Kaspios. The Hellenes conquered a part of this kingdom under Alexander in order to bring Law and Order to the region. This is why some of the lizardmen can be seen in Phaeselis.
Brought over by the power of Azazael, the Western Dragon, the Varissai have adopted an orientalist culture. Ruled by a queen, the Reptile Men give Anaxamandras little trouble.
