Tiny dragons resembling brass dragons in shape but roughly 2-4 feet long from head to tail flit about in the sand. Gold, brown, green and blue are the individual creatures colors. Upon spotting you they disappear only to reappear a distance away.
Blink Drakes are tiny dragons created by the Dragon god Irthos (son of Bahamut bound into human form for his arrogance and dislike of the race) to bring dragonkind and humanoids closer together. They form a birth bond upon hatching with either one of their own or a humanoid present during the hatching. They have an interesting ability to "blink" from one place to another to avoid prey or travel long distances. Although small they still breath fire and are very curious. Color denotes gender and fertility. Golds are fertile females (matriarchs) and are the rarest. Browns are the fertile males (patriarchs), greens and blues are infertile males and females respectively. a family of blink drakes consist of 1 gold, 1-3 browns and the rest made up of greens and blues.
Sometimes sought after for pets and familiars the eggs of these creatures bring 5,000-10,000 gold a piece. though impossible to tell what color is in an egg once hatched a DM can roll percentiles to see what color comes out. 01%-20% brown, 21%-50% blue 51%-89% green 90%-00%gold. An individual can have one Blink Drake bonded to them per point of Char bonus.
These creatures are also found in the company of dragons as they consider themselves to be cousins. With good dragons they are happy to aid the dragon and live in harmony, Evil Dragons however love to keep a family as "watch dogs" in return for food and shelter.
Blink Drakes hunt small prey but tend to avoid any combat unless they are cornered. If they have to fight they breath and then use their spell like abilities to distract opponents so they can flee.
Breath fire (Su): blink drakes breath a 5ft cone of fire for 2d4 fire damage reflex save DC13 for 1/2
Birth Bond: Upon hatching a Blink Drake will bond with the first Blink Drake or Humanoid that feeds it. This forms a permenant empathetic link. A Blink Drake can always find it's Bond Mate on the same plane and if it's bonded mate is killed it simply "blinks" out of exsistance.
Telepathy (Ex): Blink Drakes communicate telepathically with any creature within 100 ft. However they only can communicate with creatures who know draconic.
Blink (Su): Blink Drakes actually don't "blink" like the spell of the same name. Their ability is more like teleport without error. However every time they use this ability they take subdual damage for the effort that it requires. Damage is based on HD. 3-4(1d4)5-6(1d6)7-8(1d8). When blinking a Blink Drake can carry up to 6lbs with it.
