Green Claw  (緑爪) is one of the five lizardmen tribes that live in the Great Lake.


Green Claw Village

In the past, Green Claw participated in the war over resources. It led to an alliance of two other tribes against the tribes of Yellow Speckle and Sharp Edge. The outcome of the war ended with the tribal alliance's victory and stabilization of the lizardmen population.

The Fishery

Characterized by their dark green and charcoal grey scales, this tribe of lizardmen in recent years specializes in aquatic farming, a new technique brought in by Zaryusu Shasha, after wandering the outside world. With this new method of harvesting fish grown and raised from the farms, the tribe is provided with a stable food source. Thus Green Claw can be considered one of the most self-sufficient tribes in the Wetlands.

The village of the Green Claw tribe is visited by an undead messenger. It decrees the Supreme One's order of absolute destruction of all the Lizardmen in the Wetlands. He informs them that they will have eight days to prepare for the end before disappearing. Calling an assembly of warriors and Druids to debate on how to respond to the matter, it is obvious for the Lizardmen, judging by the power and magic displayed by the messenger that victory against such a foe is futile and that their tribe would perish. However, Zaryusu Shasha refuses to give in to despair and calls for the unification of all the lizardmen tribes to confront this adversary. Many of the elders are reluctant to undertake such action, but Zaryusu's brother offers his support.[1] Giving him the seal of the chief, he allows the traveler to go forth and gather the tribes which was done so successfully.[2]


Green Claw's Emblem

Green Claw's strength lies not within brute force or power, but through maintaining stable alliances with its neighboring tribes, Small Fang and Razor Tail. In recent years, the tribe has been more accepting of new technologies, adapting magic into weaponry, and proactively taking leadership in times of crisis. It is no doubt one of the most progressive tribes of lizardmen in the Wetlands that think of the future of not only its tribe but the entire race as well. The composition of the tribe is shown below:

  • 103 Warriors
  • 4 Druids
  • 7 Hunters
  • 124 Male Lizardmens
  • 105 Female Lizardmens[3]
