SPECIAL ABILITIES

Breath Weapon (Su)

A faerie dragon’s breath weapon is a 5-foot cone of pink gas. Creatures caught in the puff must succeed on a Fortitude save or experience extreme euphoria for 1d6 rounds. Affected creatures are staggered, sickened, and immune to fear effects for the duration of the euphoria.


ECOLOGY

Environment temperate and warm forest
Organization solitary or clan (2–8)
Treasure standard

Faerie dragons are chaotic members of the dragon family and are believed to be distant cousins of the pseudodragon. Faerie dragons resemble tiny 1–2 foot long dragons. Female faerie dragons have a golden sheen to their coloring while males have a silver sheen.

Faerie dragons love to play pranks on passersby and employ their spells to this end. Some faerie dragons spend months on end preparing for the day they can unleash their single grand practical joke or prank. Faerie dragons avoid combat and only attack if cornered or if their lair or young are in immediate danger. A faerie dragon attacks with its breath weapon, spells, and bite.

Faerie Dragons as Familiars

Although difficult to control, a faerie dragon can make for a powerful familiar. Spellcasters wishing to take a faerie dragon as a familiar must take the Improved Familiar feat and have an alignment within one step of chaotic good. The character must have an arcane spellcaster level of at least 7th before taking a faerie dragon as a familiar.
