    I think the name says it clearly enough. Saurod is clearly derived from "saurus", which comes from the Greek "sauros" meaning lizard. In modern times "saurus" is used in the scientific names of most dinosaurs and many other extinct reptilians, though not snakes.

    So, a lizard man, not a snake man.

    Well, following that logic I suppose Saurod could also be a Qadian!

    The name Saurod seems to come form the word "Sauria", which is the family that lizards belong too - but does not include snakes or turtles. Having Saurod and Lizorr be of the same race makes more sence.

    yes! very right. he is a lizardman. i know how much motu fans want to add to the ranks of the snakemen but saurod is a lizardman. besides he works for himself.

    I like this explanation. Do all characters need to be afilliated with a faction? Why can't we have some lone operators?

    Maybe he can work for any of the evil factions, but at a price with no strings attached.

    Since I'm not against the idea of Saurod being part of the Snake-Men I'll decide if he'll be displayed with them once he is made (hopefully VERY soon). Vintage Tongue Lasher obviously isn't based on a snake either.
    But who knows maybe Saurod will end up standing close to the evil warriors next to his movie colleague Blade...

    I always saw king Pythos as a snake man. Pythos deriving from python

    I'd love to know what they will name the figure (as his real name). The actor who played him in the movie was Pons Maar, which is the most awesome name ever! Would be cool if they could do some sort of play on the actor's name for Saurod's real name (like Marrs Pon, or; Pon of the House of Maar, or something).

    That is a great idea! I think he should remain a mercenary, but incorporating him into that race could do a lot to flush out both characters and NA on the whole. Cool!

    Oh, and I would love to see Saurod or Blade in 2012 - I think it is time.

    What like rival gangs? All those reptile guys should be part of the snakemen, even if it's just a lineage type thing. Maybe some of them evolved from the snakemen.

    Perhaps Saurod isn't a lizardman...

    ....but a human with a (cultural or personal) fetish for cybernetic implants that mimic lizard limbs & appearances...

    Ummm... no. He is clearly a lizard. When he gets nervous, his throat expands like a lizard. Body modification wouldn't allow a person to do that (not in the real world, anyways.) Plus, he has a tail!

    It's not body-mod - it'd sci-fi cybernetics. A bit like Mekanek's infinite neck or Modulock. You can do pretty much anything with sci-fi-magic.

    Just calling for him to be an "augmented" human because the whole "Lizardman", "Snakeman", "Toadman" thing is a bit overused....

    I just think that would make him less special. I think it's cool that he is a lizard bounty hunter. He seems to be from the same race as Lizorr, so we have a pretty good idea of what he would look like unmasked. We know that he not from Eternia from the mini-comics, so I don't think the fact that he is a lizard from another world is overused in this case.

    No, it wasn't a costume. Pons is really a lizard creature from another world! He just wears a human disguise when in public, so as not to attract too much attention. Gary Goddard said in a Directors commentary on the upcoming Green-Ray DVD that they saved millions by casting a real lizard man in the film.
