The Saurtons were a race native to the planet Saurton I, the Saurton were thin-bodied, bipedal reptiles with golden scales and long snouts filled with sharp teeth. They were warm-blooded creatures whose advanced immune systems helped them avoid a wide range of diseases and infections. They had evolved enough to realize that their planet was continually bombarded with asteroids, and built their cities underground to protect them from impacts. As a society, they were perfectionists, with no tolerance for failure. Workers who failed to do their jobs were beaten or executed by their co-workers and managers.
