Death Throes. When the draconian dies, the ﬂesh immediately shrivels and disintegrates, leaving behind just a skeleton and cloud of dust. The remains explode and every creature within 10 feet of it must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) slashing damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
Disease Immunity. The draconian is immune to all diseases.
Draconic Heritage. Magic can't put the draconian to sleep.
Glide. The draconian can use its wings to glide, negating any falling damage from any height. It can travel horizontally up to four times the vertical distance it descends.
Inspired by Dragons. While under the command of a dragon, the draconian has advantage on attack rolls and all saving throws.
Magic Resistance. The draconian has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
Multiattack. The draconian makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claws. Alternatively, it makes two attacks with its shortsword or longbow.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 5 (1d8 + 1) piercing damage.

Bozaks are magic-using draconians created from the eggs of bronze dragons. They are quick-witted, shrewd, and ruthless. Bozaks are just over six feet tall and are covered with bronze-colored scales. They have dull yellow eyes and gray teeth.
Soaring Draconians. Bozak wings are the most versatile of any draconian race. Aside from the kapak, the bozak is the only draconian that can actually fly. Not only can it glide like other winged draconians, it can sustain the glide indefinitely in a strong wind. On cold days, bozaks spread their wings to increase exposure to the sunlight. On warm days, they slowly flap their wings to generate cooling breezes. When bozaks are anxious or lost in thought, their wings twitch and vibrate.
Forest Raiders. Bozaks prefer to live in secluded forests where they can conduct their religious ceremonies undisturbed. Unlike other draconians, bozaks construct their own lairs, usually small huts of wood and stone with flat roots, wooden doors, and small openings in the walls for windows. They use large rocks and tree stumps for furniture, and line the floors with soft layers of weeds and twigs.
Bozak Lairs. Most bozak lairs have a simple shrine to Takhisis where the band conducts regular services. A typical shrine is a crude idol in the shape of a dragon made of stones and small trees lashed together with vines. The idol, seldom more than a few feet tall, is centered in an open held where all of the vegetation has been scorched black. A circle of charred bones surrounds the shrine. It is here the bozaks offer prayers to Takhisis and conduct their rituals in her honor.
Feigned Friends. Though utterly convinced of their superiority, bozaks feign friendship with other draconian races if it serves their purposes (the gullible baaz are often exploited by the bozaks in this way). Bozaks frequently raid human settlements for prisoners. Their diet consists mainly of vegetable matter, carrion, and small mammals.
