Well, I'd say look here, utunnels has managed to compile quite a few Cross backgrounds.

Perhaps a merger is in order?

Are those all ingame shots?  Would that be what a Dragonian looks like?  The one in the upper right corner of the room.

Hmm... Hard to say, since it may be the CC take on a Reptite, but the thing top-center (little bit to the left) is pretty damn obvious.

It appears a tad more humanoid than the Reptites.  It looks more along the lines of the statues from Fort Dragonia, iirc.  Even has a tail.  Reptites did not have tails.

Code: [Select]
[Level 3 West Lab, Chronopolis (Another)]
 
 [Ghost]
   The DNA records are
   poems and music...
   Adenine and Thymine...
   Guanine and Cytosine...
   Rythym and Melody...
   Perhaps the DNA of the ones
   who make contact with the
   Flame is recomposed by the
   sound they generate within?
   I wonder if life-forms are
   just dreaming in an endless
   flow of music?

   ~~~~ -- LAVOS -- ~~~~
   ~
   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   An extraterrestrial life-form
   that is thought to have
   fallen from the heavens
   65 million years ago.
   On the time line that existed
   before history was changed,
   Lavos was assumed to have
   slept deep below the planet's
   surface...
   Sleeping and consuming the
   planet's energy up until the
   day of destruction known as
   the '"Apocalypse."'
   There are those who believe
   that, 12 thousand years ago,
   the legendary ancient magical
   civilization known as Zeal
   came into contact with Lavos.
   That fateful encounter is
   said to have resulted in
   Zeal disappearing from the
   surface of the planet within
   the space of a single night.
   However, the very existence
   of the ancient civilization
   of Zeal has never been proven,
   so up till this day this
   theory cannot be confirmed.
   On some time lines, Lavos
   appeared on the surface of
   the planet in the year 1999
   and brought the world to
   ruins.
   However, a group of young
   time travelers saw where
   their planet's history was
   heading and, through their
   actions, rewrote time.
   This very research facility
   exists on that new time line...
   In a world where, thanks to
   the defeat of Lavos by the
   young adventurers, the
   Apocalypse never happened...
   On a temporal vector where
   human civilization continued
   to evolve unhampered.
   All the data on Lavos that was
   obtained from tracing different
   parallel world possibilities
   has proven to be volatile, with
   fluctuating discrepencies.
   Perhaps, at this point in time,
   it is nearly impossible to
   obtain any true information
   about Lavos.

   ~~ -- HUMANS & REPTITES -- ~~
   ~
   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   65 million years ago, the
   Reptites who evolved from
   reptiles had developed their
   own unique civilization...
   This was long before the
   ancestors of humans, who
   evolved from primates, had
   developed their civilization.
   Excavations carried out on the
   central continent of Zenan have
   revealed that the Reptites
   already had advanced architectural
   skills in the prehistoric era.
   But the fall of Lavos to the
   planet, and the resulting
   Ice Age this brought about,
   rang the death knell for the
   Reptites and their civilization.
   After that the Reptites
   slowly disappeared from
   the stage of history.
   However, in the distant past
   humans could have been defeated
   in the contest of evolution,
   and the Reptites could have
   continued to develop...
   It is not unthinkable that
   such a time line could exist
   in other dimensions.
   Everything is purely a
   problem of possibilities,
   and the world is only
   stabilized by the viewpoint
   of the one who observes it.

   ~~~~~ -- DNA -- ~~~~~
   ~~  - The Seeds of Life -  ~~
   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   The human body is made up of
   50 to 60 billion cells.
   Each of these cells contains
   genes in the form of DNA.
   These are the fundamental
   building blocks that exist
   inside the cell's chromosomes.
   They store genetic information
   that can be passed on from
   parent to child.
   The structure of DNA is
   common throughout all life,
   throughout all universes.
   Through DNA recombination,
   life-forms take on differing
   forms with variable abilities.

Oh, my mistake.   The picture still looks like it would be a Dragonian and not a Reptite.  Now looking closely at the Reptite sprites, I see their little tails, in proportion to their body.  The tail in the CC picture is much longer, not to mention the head shape is different and the body type is also significantly different (slender and humanoid).

Then again, Azala IS female, so if all the normal Reptites have tails, more than likely it's a female-dominant society!

GAAAGH! Dammit, I know I'm not funny, but why can't I try?

The fact that the dude to the left of the humanoid reptilian is wearing a t-shirt suggests to me that they're comparing the lifeforms during the same stage of evolution, and therefore we're looking at a Dragonian. And thus, the Dragonians looked eerily similar to some of the bad guys on Dinoriders.
