Sherpuan (Shure-poo-an)

The Sherpuan people are a tribe of mystic Lizardfolk that live next to Lake Comtu. These people moved to the lakes cave entrence after finding ancient pictographs on the walls of the cave that seem to depicting the Lizardfolk emerging from the lakes water. The people who live here are searches of divine truth and collectors of Essence Moss. Overtime the Sherpuan people developed a high tolerance to the gasses in the cave and were able to stay in to cave for longer and longer periods of time. Now the tribe lives permanently in the cave next to the waters worshipping Numbakulla  and giving thanks for the life the Lizardfolk were given.
