On occasion, a Skink spawning will not produce an entire cohort from the pools of life, as is the norm, but instead only a single Skink will issue forth. These individuals are marked by the Old Ones and destined to lead, or otherwise achieve greatness amongst their kind. Of these, some show an aptitude for magic and become Skink Priests. Those that do not become Skink Chiefs, second in command to the priests. While the the priests attend to prophecies, it is left to the Skink Chiefs to execute orders. It is they who typically oversee patrols, major construction projects and the messenger system. It is not their role to sacrifice themselves in battle, but rather to spy out intruders, alert the Saurus and then guide them towards the foe. It is they who interpret the complicated instructions — often passed from Slann Mage-Priest to Skink Priest and finally to themselves. Then, in turn, it is they who give orders to the Saurus and the cold-blooded behemoths that make up the bulk of the Lizardmen armies.
