Classic FFXI community

A bipedal reptile found throughout the Quon continent; usually in warm areas, although exceptions to this exist. They are somewhat valuable to the marketplaces of Vana'diel: their hides can be made into a decent lightweight armor, their tails are sometimes used by alchemists, and their eggs can be used by cooks to create various recipes.

Lizards are docile creatures, but when attacked will defend themselves, using their thick skulls and strong tails as weapons. Lizards will sometimes defend themselves with fluids produced by glands within their body; they can secrete a lubricant that can cause some blows to slide off their hides, spit a powerful venom to poison their enemies, and create balls of fluid that will burn (or freeze, in some cases) anyone nearby. Their eyes are also believed to possess some sort of magical quality: at times, staring directly into them can petrify a victim. Finally, their high-pitched screams can sometimes cause disorientation and lightheadedness in those who hear it.
