You also know Draconic.

Dragon Claws[edit]

Starting at level 1 you gain the claws of the dragon. You can multi-attack with them as an action. They deal 1d4+(your strength mod/dexterity mod) damage. The damage die increases to 1d6 at 8th level, and to 1d8 at 16th level.

You can choose your firebreath type from a dragon of your choice.

You can only do this once a per long rest and regain this feature after a long rest.

Draconic Leader[edit]

Draconic Warrior[edit]

These are the strongest of the strong, the toughest of the tough, and the mightiest of the mighty. They improve upon themselves by enhancing the gifts they already have. This leads them to becoming brutal warriors in combat, to the point where they may be even more brutal than their draconic ancestors. They wish to show the world just how strong they are.

Strong Body[edit]

At level 3 your body has begun to grow into a more powerful, draconic build.

Draconic Body[edit]

At level 15 you gain advantage on all strength checks and strength saving throws. You also deal 1d4+(strength modifier) damage when grappling and opponent due to your claws.

Draconic Wrath[edit]

At level 18 if you make an attack with your claws you can make a breath or a weapon attack as a bonus action. The opponent has disadvantage on the saving throw for the breath attack and you have advantage on the weapon or bite attack.

Draconic Sage[edit]

Rather than use your draconic blood for strength or leadership, you use it for the insight and wisdom associated with such old beings. You lead not through fear or love but from the guidance and experience of your draconic ancestor. Regardless of their former alignment in life they will do their best to guide you in the right path for you.

Sharp Mind[edit]

At level 3 you gain proficiency with the perception and insight skills. Your ancestor knew that you needed to know as much as you can about someone by the way they look, act, and speak.

Ancestral Possession[edit]

At level 10 you can allow your draconic ancestor to possess your body for an hour. During this hour you and your ancestor have control over your body and you can ask your ancestor anything they would know about. On top of that your AC goes up by 10 for this hour and add 10 to your attack rolls. You can only do this once a day. You regain this feature after every long rest.

Ancestral Mind[edit]

At level 15 you think more like a dragon. When fighting any draconic enemy, such as dragons, half-dragons, kobolds, or lizardfolk, you get advantage on all attack and saving throws against these creatures.

Ancestral Bond[edit]

At level 18 the bond between you and your ancestor is increased to the fullest. You have access to any memories of your ancestor. Depending on the situation you can use these memories to gain advantage on a skill roll, you can navigate a place your ancestor has been to flawlessly, you can use your ancestor's perception as your own, etc. You can only do this for half of your level, rounded down, times a day.
