Solar Dragon, Young

This regal dragon glows like the sun. Its burnished wings shimmer the color of flames, and a crown of horns decorates its head.

Alien Presence (Su)

A creature that fails its saving throw against a solar dragon’s alien presence is blinded for 5d6 rounds (or permanently if it has 4 Hit Dice or fewer).

Channel Life (Su)

A solar dragon can channel positive energy a number of times per day equal to 3 + its Charisma modifier, using its age category + 2 as its cleric level. This energy can be used only to heal living creatures.

Primal Fire (Su)

A very young or older solar dragon’s breath weapon can affect creatures normally immune or resistant to fire damage. A creature immune to fire damage still takes half damage from the breath weapon (no damage with a successful saving throw). A resistant creature’s fire resistance is treated as 10 less than normal.


Environment vacuum
Organization solitary
Treasure triple

Arrogant and proud, solar dragons see themselves as the originators of light and life in the vastness of space. They treat all living creatures as their own creations.
