Dragon Knight[edit]

A heavily clad knight walks through the town. The townsfolk make way with fear in their eyes. She hears a scream in the middle of the town and she rushes to the source. A man, the governor, just executed another man for stumbling before him; eyes of rage burn behind her intimidating helmet. She leaps and strikes at the governor; he retracts and tries to cast his spells, to no avail. She grabs the man by the neck, and her cloak spreads out, shifting into wings as she launches into the air. She calls out to the wind, then throws the man downwards; as he falls his last sight is the maw of an ancient dragon. She lands upon her companion, then departs.

Atop a misty mountain, a group of refugees cower as the man before them, an elf, battles the blue dragon that has destroyed their town. He lunges and spews out a massive bolt of lightning, taking out the dragon's eye; He walks to the injured creature. The enslaved child of his enemy lands at his feet. He waves his hand commanding it to protect the villagers. It shields them with its body. In a last ditch effort, a crack of lightning is expelled from the downed foe, directly at the knight. He falls, and for a moment the dragon sees victory. The knight slowly rises. Renewed by the assault, he commands his subject to merge with himself; he crackles with lightning and flies at his foe, caught in a death embrace, as they both fall to their doom.

Among a horde of demons are a warrior and his trusted friend, a scarred silver dragon. He spins his lance around, hitting several of his enemies, to little avail, and as a last ditch effort he expels a wave of ice all around him, killing several of them; he then commands his dragon to brutally assault the remaining demons. Their destruction grants them a small reprieve. He pulls out his ax, takes a deep breath, soars up into the sky with his trusted steed, then jumps to what seems to be certain doom. As he lands, the earth shakes and his enemies fall to the ground. He rises up and looks to the army charging them; he looks back and sees his friend's nest: the last of the silver dragons, not yet even born. He looks to his friend once more, and smiles.

Envoy Of The Dragon[edit]

Not many deserve to rule over dragons, and fewer still can ever accomplish such a feat, but those who do mostly become Dragon Knights, an ancient order who once devoted their lives to protecting the eggs of dragons. These warriors would lay down their lives in exchange for the dragon to watch over their race. Occasionally a wyrmling would see the devotion of these knights and would then devote their lives to protecting the one who they owed their chance at life to, but with the dwindling numbers of the dragons, this order simply faded into history. Occasionally a mortal might become a Dragon Knight by raising a dragon, although many have found ways to enslave dragons to their own ends. Neither good nor evil prevents a Dragon Knight from taking form, all it takes is devotion.

The Magic Of Symbiosis[edit]

Many dragons possess powers that not even they are aware of. A Dragon Knight knows the ancient arts required in artificial aging and power extraction, and by forging a soul connection with the dragon, either willing or forced, creates a symbiotic relationship between the two, although the knight tends to take more than it gives in the terms of power. Those that act in the best interest of the dragon can benefit their companion to a great degree, accomplishing tasks that would be impossible by themselves alone. Naturally charismatic, Dragon Knights, although usually feared, are called upon to accomplish tasks that not even armies can perform, and are known as great saviors or villains; it is rare for a Dragon Knight to not be known throughout the land. Their courage is boundless, their strength magnificent, and their leadership awe-inspiring.

Playing as the Dragon Knight and Dragon[edit]

Your Dragon listens to your commands as best as it can. It takes its turn on your initiative. On your turn, the dragon moves separately with no action required by you (unless you are riding it). You can use your bonus action to verbally/telepathically command it to take the Attack, Dash, Disengage, Dodge, Help or any action it gains later. Also, once you have the Extra Attack feature, you and your dragon can attack in any combination up to the maximum number of attacks you have. Like any creature, the dragon can spend hit dice during a short rest. If you are incapacitated, absent, or unable to give orders, the dragon acts on its own. It never requires your command to use its reactions, such as when making an opportunity attack. You have separate reactions, unlike the combined actions and bonus actions. The style of play shows the bond between the Dragon and its Knight. You may choose another class to be to ride along side your dragon. You get the traits of the other class you have chosen along with the one's of a Dragon Knight.

Obtain Dragon[edit]

Starting at 1st level, you gain a dragon companion. Your dragon ages magically in power and size as you level in this class. When you gain this feature choose a dragon type based on your alignment (your DM can allow you to change your Dragons alignment if it makes sense for your backstory or for the setting of the campaign ), at least 1 axis of which you must share with the dragon. You also learn Draconic; if you already know Draconic, you may instead teach a language you know to your dragon. You also gain the feat Mounted Combatant while riding your dragon, if is large enough for you to ride. In addition, you form a telepathic bond with your dragon (like that in the find familiar spell). Dragon Knights are known to wear armor in the fashion and color of their dragon.

Type Alignment Breath Weapon Saving Throw Type Alignment Breath Weapon Saving Throw
Black Chaotic Evil Acid Dexterity Brass Chaotic Good Fire Dexterity
Blue Lawful Evil Lightning Dexterity Bronze Lawful Good Lightning Dexterity
Green Lawful Evil Poison Constitution Copper Chaotic Good Acid Constitution
Red Chaotic Evil Fire Dexterity Gold Lawful Good Fire Dexterity
Shadow Any Alignment Any Dexterity Platinum Chaotic Good Radiant Dexterity
White Chaotic Evil Cold Constitution Silver Lawful Good Cold Constitution

The Save DC against your dragon's abilities is equal to 8 + your dragon's proficiency bonus + your dragon's Charisma modifier. The saving throw needed for opposing the DC is listed next to the breath weapon.

Dragon Template[edit]

Your dragon levels with you, as though it has a class: it gains 1d12 + its Constitution modifier in hit points each time you level, and starts with 1d12 + its Constitution modifier hit points. The dragon starts with the following ability scores (ordered in any way you like): [16, 14, 14, 12, 10, 10]. Your dragon cannot wield weapons: it is considered proficient with its own attacks and uses 8 + its proficiency bonus + its Charisma modifier for its DCs. Its AC = 15 + Dexterity Modifier + AC Bonus, unless it is wearing armor specifically adapted to the size and shape of the dragon, which, due to its specialized nature, will cost 4 times more than the armor base; its AC in that case is its AC Bonus + Armor AC. If your dragon dies you'll have to use part of your bond and a gift to resurrect it, it costs 500 gp and 50 hit points because your dragon is bound to your soul, it's a ritual that will take 8 hours. Your dragon is proficient with 3 skills of your choice and is proficient in 2 saving throw. The dragon has a walking speed of 40 feet, and immunity to its element. Your dragon improves as you level, as shown on the table below. The dragon has the following ability score restrictions: Tiny, Medium, and smaller: Max of 24, Large: 26, Huge: 28, Gargantuan: 30 and it can't trade ability score increases for feats (it gains feats a different way).

Breath Attack[edit]

Beginning at level 3, as an action, you may command your dragon to use its breath attack. If your dragon has an intelligence of 12 or has been under your service for at least a year, you may command it to use its breath attack as a bonus action instead. After having used its breath weapon, at the start of each of your turns, roll 1d8 -- on an 8 it can use its breath weapon again. The chance of recharging gets better as you level, as shown in the Damage/Recharge Requirement column of the table below. The breath is either a cone or a line when using a breath attack depending on the dragons color. If your dragon already has a preexisting breath attack, these bonuses do not stack. The old breath attack is removed and the new one is put in its place (even if it's weaker, this is due to the giving of power to the knight).

If they fail they take 4d6 + your Charisma modifier cold damage and are restrained until the start of your next turn; if they succeed they take half damage and are not restrained.
Rainbow Breath (Black/Green/Copper): You breathe in deeply, then exhale in a 60-foot cone: each creature within the cone must make a Dexterity save or take 4d6 + your Charisma modifier acid damage; they take half damage on a successful save. They must then make a Constitution save or take 2d6 poison damage and become poisoned for 1 minute; if they succeed they take half damage and are not poisoned.

Dragon Knight Art[edit]

When you reach level 10, you adopt a particular style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options:


When you attack with your weapon you tend to show off. When you strike at an enemy, you may make an Intimidation or Performance check against a foe within 30 feet of you opposed by a Wisdom saving throw. If they fail, they focus their attention on you, granting them disadvantage on their next attack if it is not against you. You are also considered to have the feat Defensive Duelist.


Your cunning in battle allows you to make an appropriate knowledge check (Arcana, History, Nature, or Religion) once per encounter against a particular type of foe. If you beat its amount of Hit Dice/Level (take the highest of the group if there is one of that type that is higher) with your check, you gain insight against that creature type (Aberration, Humanoid, Monstrosity, etc) and your AC, saves, attack, and damage rolls are increased by 1 against those creatures. You are also considered to have the feat Alert.


You focus on hard, explosive blows in combat. When your physical attacks connect, you may force the target to make a Strength save with a DC equal to 10 + your strength modifier + your proficiency bonus; if they fail you may move the target 5 feet away from you in any direction. You are also considered to have the feat Great Weapon Master.


You are always ready for an attack and constantly changing your foot work. When a melee attack misses you, you may use your reaction to attack the target. You are also considered to have the feat Mobile.


You proficient with charging enemies in the heat of battle. When you make a Dash and Attack on the same turn or when you make an Attack after moving at least half your maximum movement, you gain advantage on your first attack roll. You are also considered to have the feat Charger.


You are always swinging your swords in readiness. While you have 2 melee weapons drawn, you gain +2 AC. You are also considered to have the feat Dual Wielder.


You prefer to fight at a distance compared to close-range fighting. When using a ranged weapon, you gain a +2 bonus on attack and damage rolls. You are also considered to have the feat Sharpshooter.

Starting at 18th level, You imbue your weapon with the elemental power of your dragon: when dealing damage with your weapon add 3d6 extra damage of your dragon's elemental power.
