Seven feet tall with sleek, gecko-like scales and a bizarrely long neck; the glare emanating down upon you from a geru’s unfeeling eyes is more than enough to send a shiver down your spine. Geru are by far the most common variety of lizalfos, to the point they often are simply referred to as "lizalfos." They are also the most culturally capable and organized, as they have been known to create large fortifications in what domains they call their own.
Geru are most commonly seen in swamps, marshes, and forests, but can also be found in ruins, mountains, caves, or many other locations.
