The Saurian's are speculated to have been created from DNA using prehistoric reptiles from the Jurassic period. The history of Saurian's 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, are colored with prejudice. Terrans, apparently believing in the rumor that that Saurian's are reptilian dimwitted or hardheaded; Saurian's looking down on the fact that Terrans are mammals.
