Hondra

Hondra CR 5

One of the draaki’s few keepsakes from the distant past, these strange beasts are a reminder of the time long ago when they ruled with unmatched arcane power. Impressed with the physical prowess and durability, they used magic to breed draconic traits into the beasts from the surface. The resulting creation has all the rage of an ursine and many of the defenses of a dragon, but remains quite stupid and easy for the draaki to control. Domesticated not to attack their minders, the scavengers generally encourage these creatures to wander near their settlements as an impromptu and low-maintenance natural defense.
