Exthilion is a bio-synthetic entity created for manual labor by the Saurians, an ancient Earth race of hyper-intelligent dinosaurs. They considered him too powerful and used him as a template for creating the dragon slave race, giving each of the four dragon clans a subset of his abilities. While Exthilion is the only first generation dragon, he does not look like a dragon himself, instead looking more like the dragon sub-race of wyrms.
Exthilion was created by Gold Digger artist/writer/creator Fred Perry after being inspired by the Magic Motion ride at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas. He first appeared unnamed in the black-and-white Gold Digger #27.
