Within the lore of AOS are Seraphon Cold Ones and Order Serpentis' Drakespawn the same creatures? Or different but related or are they totoally different beasts with different origins that happen to look similar? And what are their origins? Are they magically created creatures, tamed dinosaurs? Or something different?

They are magical creatures made by the darkling covens for the Order Serpentis since the dragons were hard to repopulate.  The Seraphon ones are the traditional Cold Ones.  If I remember right the Hydras are also magically created creatures in the same vein.

The wiki stated they are entirely different beasts, but it also states AoS female dwarves have full beards, I don't know the source for either, but I don't have the Soulbound book that may shed more light on the former. 

In the Drakespawn Chariot description, they are described as Cold Ones.

There's a good chance the origins of the beasts is not described the same every time.

Thanks both. I am slowly building a Living City army based mainly on models I'd like to (mod and) paint rather than being in any way competetive. I like the look of the lizards and lizard chariot but really dislike the lore around what I guess previously were dark elves. So I'm going to try to give them a bit more of a wood elf/Wanderer look and wanted to fluff-up where they got thier lizards/dragons/dinosaurs from. I think I may well just go with "tamed" lizards from the forest.
