Dragone (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Physical Description[edit]

Dragones look exactly like humans in every way, however, what sets them apart is their ability to shapeshift into dragons at will. One thing consistent throughout all Dragones is their eyes and hair, the colors are always matching at least in the same hue, which correlates with whatever breath weapon the dragon may have, the color of their scales not always seeming to match the weapon.

Dragones came about as a result of young drakes taking a human form to hide amongst humans and escape being hunted down. However due to how welcoming and frankly easy the human lifestyle was, some of the drakes decided to stay as humans, and without long, through many generations of cross-breeding, the Dragones were born.


Dragones are very solitary creatures, often opting to live on their own away from groups, only seeking them out for the purposes of reproduction or simply chase them away from their territory. However, some dragones live among humans as they find them amusing to observe from afar, watching people go through their day to day lives. The only time when dragones live with each other is for the purpose of mating, often leaving the hatchling to its own devices once they are a few years of age (roughly 4).

Dragone Names[edit]

Dragones often don't name their children, simply calling them by the color of their scales, so most dragones name themselves unless they take a liking to their hatchling name

Male: Coal, Blizzard, Fire, Blue

Female: Soot, Snow, Blaze, Cream
