A sa'ardrak is a muscular lizard the size of a small pony or large dog. Their scales are hardened and proof against normal weapons and fire which makes for great armor. Sa’ardrakes breathe a purple flame from a mixture of chemicals contained in two separate pouches, one below the tongue, one connected to the esophagus just above the stomach (below the spine).

Sa'ardrakes come in yellows, burnt orange, earth-tones, and dark greens. A single male may lay claim to a number of females, killing any other male that encroaches on his territory. Females lay two to four eggs, but they often have to hide the hatchling from the father if its male or the father will likely eat it.

These lizards are almost supernaturally strong, but are not considered aberrations. While honery, they are not actively cruel, and not exceptionally bright.
