Dragon Blood Sorcerer (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
Dragon Blood Sorcerer
Close Descendant of a Dragon Ancestor. Not as Uncommon as most people think, yet at the same time not very numerous. The descendant uses the power it gains from its ancestor for magic rather then physical fighting. It also gains physical attributes of its ancestor, such as claws and wings. However it also sacrifices some attributes such as blindesense and its breathe weapon, and instead, channels that energy to greaten its magical abilities
