A small ball of scales and claws spirals through the air, crashing into and toppling over a nearby pillar. It gets up, shakes off the mishap, and, uneasily, takes to the skies again.
Drakes are clumsy fliers that resemble, and act like, the young of true dragons. Their wingspan and head to tail length are slightly more than the average human's height. A medium spellcaster of 7th level or higher or a huge or larger one may take a drake as a familiar, getting a +1 to natural attack rolls.
Drakes prefer to fly around their opponent, swoop in and either bite and claw, then return to the skies to avoid damage.
Some fiery drakes, known as Torch Drakes, possess a 3/day Fireball (DC 16, CL 6) spell-like ability, a Constitution score of 7, and a CR of 4.
