From D&D Wiki
A Dragon Warrior gains power based off his dragon ancestor. A Dragon Warrior gains abilities that even half-dragons arn't able to use.
Making a Dragon Warrior
Credit to class goes to http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Dragon_Warrior,_Variant_(3.5e_Class) I simply made this edited version for a playable PC version.
A Dragon Warrior makes a good fighter replacement, however it's breath weapon can be devastating to allies in combat. The most important ability for a Dragon Warrior is constitution, guaranteeing a high amount of hit points. The next abilities would Str and Dex. Half-Dragons can become Dragon Warriors, along with anyone else with a dragon ancestry. Those of other ancestry become the same as a half dragon by following this path. All Dragon Warriors know Draconic.

Fire: Red/Gold Dragon, Water: Black/Bronze Dragon, Earth: Blue/Copper Dragon, Wind: Green Dragon, Ice: White/Silver Dragon
Fire: Wielders of one of the four Primal elements, Fire Dragon warrior are as blazing and hotheaded as their element. Fire Dragon warrior were trained under the Red or Gold Dragons to wield flames as an extension of their own body. Like their Draconic teachers, they are hotheaded and incredibly confident in their power, making excellent fighters. They've inherited the Red Dragon's love of gold and treasure, and as they progress will begin to give a warm glow (+5 resist Cold). They are a fighting class through and through. They draw their power from elemental fire and can survive the hottest temperatures without effect.
Water: Wielders of the Primal element of Water, Water Dragon warrior are calm and collected, more apt to think the situation through than their Fire counterparts. Water Dragon warrior were trained by the mighty Black and Bronze Dragons to wield the forces of water. They are intelligent and diplomatic people, choosing planning over fighting, as such they are of a more supportive nature when compared to more warrior-like Dragon warrior. As their powers grow they start to have a light blue glow to their bodies with a lightening of the hair and eyes. They are friends of any aquatic creature and have become known as powerful healers. They can survive under the most intense pressures of the ocean floor.
Earth: Wielders of the Primal element of Earth, the Earth Dragon warrior are living mountains with near infinite patience and a love of simplicity and the natural world. Earth Dragon warrior were trained by the Blue and Copper Dragons. They are wise beings and unlike other Dragon warrior differ from their master's general behavior. They are not the provocative fighters that their Green Dragon masters are, instead being humbled by the element of Earth. They do share their Dragon's close kinship with the natural world, being close friends to the plants and animals. They are powerful beings, if a bit slow moving, but have the force of mountains behind them. Their skin becomes rocky and tough as their bond with the element grows, with green eyes.
Wind: Wielders of the Primal element of Wind, the Wind Dragon warrior are curious adventure seekers, never staying in one place for long. Wind Dragon warrior were trained under the high flying Green Dragons, like their masters choosing flight over fight. They are the tricksters, controlling the skies and journeying the world. They have a great love of open spaces and are masters of flight but are generally weaker than most. They slowly gain a lighter sheen to themselves and eventually will be floating continuously above the ground.
Ice:Ice Dragon warrior were trained under the White Dragons to wield the element of frost. Like the dragons they trained under they love the cold and can always be found where White and Silver dragons are. Few Ice Dragon warriors ever venture far from cold places. Ice Dragon warriors gain a bonus when it comes to fight on snow, as such in deserts it loses that advantage.
Growth: At 9th level a Dragon Warrior grows one size larger, to a maximum of his dragon ancestor's great wyrm size
Dragon Rage: At 11 level the Dragon warrior can fly into a rage once per day. This increase by 1 every 3 levels. In a rage, Dragon warrior temporarily gains a +4 bonus to Strength, a +4 bonus to Constitution, and a +2 morale bonus on Will saves, but he takes a –2 penalty to Armor Class. The increase in Constitution increases the Dragon warrior hit points by 4 points per level, but these hit points go away at the end of the rage when his Constitution score drops back to normal. (These extra hit points are not lost first the way temporary hit points are).
Transform: At 15th level the Dragon warrior transforms in to his Dragon Ancestor becoming half dragon if not already. He gains some abilities, stats, feats, and all those of being a Half Dragon. Str +1, Con +1, Int +1, Cha +1
