Lizardfolk are reptile humanoid characters in the roleplaying game (RPG) 'Dungeons and Dragons'.

They are ectothermic creatures who live in warmer climates and find it difficult to adjust to a cold climate. They rely on outside warmer climates to keep their bodies warm. They are quite heavy but they are excellent swimmers.

The 'D&D' pathfinder Lizardfolk are recognized as pillars of magic with an inclination towards adventure. Lizardfolk can be of multiple colors, either green, gray, or blue.

They turn into adults at the age of 12 but they do not live for long. Their life span is, on average, 50 years. They mostly speak the Draconic language, but Lizardfolk can also speak in different languages according to their geographical location, like Dwarven, Elven, Gnoll, Goblin, Orc, and Aquan.

One of the most interesting things about Lizardfolk names is that they are often inspired by the characters' behavior. For instance, a Lizardfolk who is often found among the trees may be referred to as Vine. A strong swimmer Lizardfolk could be known as Shark. Lizardfolk do not have surnames.

When male Lizardfolk reach adulthood, they have a bright orange, red, or yellow color in their frills. Lizardfolk live in tribes and in each tribe, there are at least 40 adult males.
