The Saurians are speculated to have been created using the DNA of prehistoric reptiles from the Jurassic period. The history of the Saurians beyond the general description of their creation is unknown. Saurians are self-described warriors, who place a great deal of importance on the matter of pride, either in themselves or in their heritage and honor.
Their relationship with Terrans, based on interactions between Gene Starwind and Duuz Delax Rex, is colored with prejudice. Terrans, apparently believing in the rumor that Saurians are reptilian dimwitted or hardheaded; Saurians looking down on the fact that Terrans are mammals.
