Sazarons feel it is their duty to oversee and execute the many day-to-day tasks that maintain their home and balance out their mischievous dirindi cohabitants. Sazarons are large creatures with a lower body similar to an iguanodon, with two thick hind legs and two leaner front legs. Generally measuring 15 feet long and weighing 900 pounds, sazarons have long tails tipped with a large knob of bone that they can wield offensively. Starting at the saurian shoulders, the sazaron’s body transitions into the torso of a large humanoid.
Their incredibly thick skin gives them electricity resistance and insulates them from dirindis’ electric greetings.
Sazarons are scholarly creatures that move at a more measured pace than most other inhabitants of Arkanen, preferring to avoid conflict in order to study and further their knowledge. Instinctively skeptical, sazarons also have the ability to magically compel others to speak only the truth.
The ancient sazaron capital contains numerous magical universities and mystical academies, and a great number of sazaron sages, scholars, and scientists call the city home.
These scholars are particularly interested in two fields of study.
Those who study atmospheric submergence analyze phenomena, including its effects on their moon’s ecosystems and how best to store and ration the electricity collected by the gigantic pylons interspersed throughout the capital. These scholars often find themselves working alongside their electrically attuned dirindi fellows, while many of the less academically inclined are employed as part of the corps of electricians who maintain the pillars and energy reserves.
The other most popular topic of study focuses on the mind-searing hallajins, which Arkanen is tasked with containing on the nearby moon via a magical barrier.
