This functions as camouflage, but is also used commonly in social signaling and in reactions to temperature and other conditions.

  1. Do Draco have the ability to assume completely human form? Or can they only ever be lizard-humanoid shape, and just change color?

    The reason I ask is I’m looking at this line from their description: “sometimes they even infiltrate cities in an attempt to gain political power to manipulate other’s societies.” That looks to me like they are being mistaken for a human, since most people seem unlikely to want a lizard person to be mayor or chancellor or whatever. Can Draco appear to be human in these situations? Thanks!


  2. If the Draco live underground and have sensitive eyes, wouldn’t they get a bonus for being in low light, and a penalty for being in bright light?
