A loyal, powerful warrior whose finite vocabulary belies a deceptive intellect.

Standing over seven feet in height and weighing a quarter-ton, Crossel is a black-scaled lizard-man, a member of a race called the Zardians. He resembles a tall, broad-shouldered cross between a man and a salamander.
In Wyrmshadow: Broken Home, Crossel learned of an ancestral bond between the Dragons and the Zardians (The ancient, extinct Sau were a common ancestor of Dragons and Zardians). As a gift commemorating his courage, Crossel was invited to become a Dragonkin through a mysterious arcane draconic ritual. After this event, Crossel had more dragon-like features, a clear speaking voice and complete vocabulary.
