The Saurian Ancients are believed to have used magic longer than any other race. The relationship of the Cuatl with magic is like breathing air – their pampered bodies reflecting the degree to which their mind has focused upon its use in spell craft. No longer requiring the words or gestures, they are able to act and communicate telepathically and through others. Paradoxically, they value order and structure to such an extent that some of the wilder paths of magic are beyond philosophical acceptance, maybe even beyond intellectual grasp. Yet the paths they are able to use, they employ with exceptional skill, while making use of Skink practitioners to connect with their environment and the many beasts which complement their civilisation.
