Descendant of Red Dragon[edit]

It is rumored that sorcerers' and bards' magical powers originate from their dragon ancestors. Red Dragon Disciples are sorcerers and bards who seek to heighten their powers by embracing their red draconic blood. These descendants share their ancient sire's vanity and desire for gold and gems. Their haughty attitudes can often lead to butting heads with other party members. The slightest insult can invoke their wrath and ferocity which is truly terrible to behold. They prefer an exciting life of exploration to a cloistered existence among dusty books. Many look for adventure, especially if they can increase the size of their hoard. They often feel drawn to areas where they know that dragons live so they can learn garner more information about their heritage.
