Grab (Ex)

A dragonborn behir’s grab attack works against creatures of any size category. It can constrict the same round it establishes a hold. On any round thereafter that it maintains its hold, the behir can choose to rake the grappled target or swallow it whole. The dragonborn behir does not gain the grappled condition if it grapples a foe.

Mirage (Su)

A dragonborn behir can make itself appear to be in two places at once as a free action for 16 rounds per day. This ability functions as project image but the dragonborn behir can use its breath weapon through the mirage.


Environment warm hills and deserts
Organization solitary or pair
Treasure double

The dragonborn are living proof of the behir’s blue dragon ancestry. While they might be larger, smarter, and much more dangerous than their descendants, blue dragons regard them as no better than their lesser kin. Feuds and even outright wars can begin between a blue dragon and a dragonborn, both driven by wounded pride and bigotry. The dragonborn especially enjoy outwitting their superior cousins, and then rubbing the victory in the snouts of others. As the true dragons consider the existence of the dragonborn an insult, events can spiral out of control. Sometimes cities or entire nations can become caught in the middle or manipulated into the conflicts.
