Razor Tail (鋭き尻尾) is one of the five lizardmen tribes that lives in the vicinity of the Great Lake.

Background[edit | edit source]

Razor tail Village

In the past, Razor Tail participated in the resource war of the Wetlands. The tribe was part of an alliance of three lizardmen tribes: Green Claw, Small Fang and itself. This alliance faced off against an opposing alliance composed of Yellow Speckle and Sharp Edge. Led by Green Claw, the three tribe alliance emerged victorious, and with their victory assured, it brought peace to the Wetlands.[1] After the war came to an end, Razor Tail still remained allies with the other two tribes.

Unlike the other lizardmen tribes, Razor Tail does not chose its chieftain through a test of strength. Instead it is a test of wisdom, possibly to find a competent wielder of the White Dragon Bone Armor. In a way, Razor Tail had never decided on who gets to have the position of chieftain as it is chosen through physical combat after Kyuku Zuzu's birth.

Razor Tail was the first lizardmen tribe to receive the declaration of war from Iguva=41.[2] Seeing the threat too serious to ignore and the possibility of being annihilated first, Razor Tail eagerly joined forces with their old allies, Green Claw and Small Fang to counter the undead army.[3]
