Dragon Soul (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
|By [img src link]|
Dragon Souls are dragons that have died and decided to live in another body of another race or machine. Dragon Souls are rare in any world, but they are even found in worlds without magic. Dragon Souls either live out their lives without knowing their is a dragon inside of them or find out about the dragon and then either live in harmony or battle for dominance of the body. Some people become Dragon Souls later in life and not at birth. Only Great Wyrm Dragons have be seen to be able to send their soul into another body even those trapped by magic (1% Chance if DM allows it) while most do not chose this path unless they either want to gain more or want to give to the future of the chosen individual. Dragon Souls have been able to merge with a host and then continue onto the next with millennials of knowledge and greed to pass down.
