From The Regnum Animale by Bishop Vitellus of Oaken:
Reptilians dwell in the warm southern climes across the sea. Their bodies are clad in scales, and they have a well-deserved reputation for ferocity, ruthlessness and sorcerous pursuits. Though they, like the Avians, are egg-layers, they have long hated the Avians and have waged war against them for centuries. Likewise, they have never been friends of the Mammalia, and our history is washed with blood spilt between our peoples.
