|“||Also, dragons are pretty. Very pretty.||”|
Half Dragon is a character class that can be used to make a monster into a more "dragon-like" monster. It can also be taken by player characters who want to be more dragon-like, for whatever reason. Maybe they got spilled with dragon blood and became dragon-like themselves. Maybe their mother slept with a dragon in disguise. Maybe the dragon wasn't in disguise. I don't want to hear about it.
Making a Half-Dragon
|Special:||Must have some reason why you're more draconic than everyone else. Maybe it's inherited, maybe it's not. Something. Just don't go into too much detail, I probably don't even want to know.|
|Special:||Must choose one appropriate dragon type to be more like.|
|1st||+1||+2||+2||+2||Breath Weapon, Dragon Sight, Scales of the Dragon|
|2nd||+2||+3||+3||+3||Immunities, Strength of the Dragon, Subtypes, Wings of the Dragon|

Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Half-Dragon.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Half Dragon gains no proficiency with armor or weapons.
Breath Weapon (Su): A Half Dragon is able to emit a deadly breath weapon. The energy type of the weapon is appropriate to whatever dragon type is involved in the dragon-half. As appropriate, it will either come out as a cone with short range, or a line which is twice that long. The breath weapon does 1d6 of damage per 1/2 character level (or HD) of the Half Dragon and the Reflex save DC is 10 + ½ Hit Dice + Con Modifier. Using this breath weapon is a standard action, and once used it cannot be used again for 2d4 rounds.
Subtypes: A Half Dragon of second level has the Dragon Subtype, as well as whatever elemental or energy subtypes is appropriate for whatever kind of dragon is manifest within her. For example: a Half Black Dragon would gain subtypes of [Dragon, Water].
Wings of the Dragon (Ex): At second level, a half dragon grows dragon wings. They may be small and cute or huge and cloak-like. But regardless of size or mass ratios, they allow the character to fly half again as fast as their land movement rate with average maneuverability.
Spell Resistance (Ex): 3rd level Half Dragons have Spell Resistance of 2 + Character Level (yes, only 2 + Character Level, I'm not even kidding).
Sphere: A 3rd level Half Dragon gains a single Sphere.
