SPECIAL ABILITIES

Breath Weapon (Su)

Although it deals negative energy damage, an umbral dragon’s breath weapon does not heal undead creatures.

Ghost Bane (Su)

A young or older umbral dragon’s physical attacks deal damage to incorporeal creatures normally.

Shadow Breath (Su)

Three times per day, an adult or older umbral dragon can breathe a cone of shadows. Creatures who fail a Fortitude save are blinded for 1d4 rounds and take 1 point of Str drain per age category possessed by the dragon. A successful save negates the blindness and reduces Str drain to 1d4 points.

Umbral Scion (Ex)

Umbral dragons have negative energy affinity and are immune to energy drain and death effects.



ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary
Treasure triple

Cruel and sadistic, umbral dragons prefer the taste of undead flesh or ghostly ectoplasm, yet never turn down opportunities to consume living flesh.
