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.

Umbral Scion (Ex)

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


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.
