Species Name: Avengelion
Physical Traits: Pointed ears. Half Dragon infants take the physical form of their human or demihuman parent. Few physical features identify a newborn babe as a Half Dragon, though there are telltale signs that a careful observer could not miss. The Half Dragon newborn usually has eyes or hair that are the colour of the dragon parent's scales such as gold, silver, red or bronze. As they reach adulthood Half Dragons grow tall and lean no matter what human or demihuman blood mixes with their draconic heritage. The dragon heritage then begins to develop, overwhelming lesser genes. During adolescence dragonlike powers manifest themselves. These abilities become stronger and more pronounced with time and use until a Half Dragon grows to full power. Physical changes accompany the appearance of these abilities, eventually metamorphosing the youth into a beautiful and unique being.
Height: 6 ft
Weight: 150 lbs
Abilities: Nightvision up to 90 metres
Sensory Organs: Visual
Reproduction: Sexual. Avengelions are the result of polymorphed dragons breeding with human, demihuman or humanoid females. Dragons that can polymorph into a race form can breed with whatever race they have become. Half Dragons are rare and are best used sparingly. Though they are viable and capable of breeding among themselves and races there aren't hordes of Half Dragons running around. Only male dragons and female humans or demihumans can create half dragon children; female dragons cannot be impregnated by male humans or demihumans and beings other than humans or demihumans cannot bear a dragon's children. Demihumans include Elves, Half Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Halflings, and similar humanlike races. Only those dragons with the innate power to polymorph themselves into human or demihuman shape can interbreed with the latter while in the latter's form.

|Silver dragons love humanity and elvenkind and their propensity to walk among them in their guises has led to several half-silvers. Due to their friendly relations with their dragon parent Half Silvers tend to be the friendliest, most well adjusted and least bitter Half Dragons. They are often considered the most beautiful Half Dragons. Argentums start with Emission Cold are immune to all cold attacks.|
|Half Golds are friendly, honest, noble, trustworthy and honourable. Aurics start with Emission Fire are immune to all fire and heat attacks.|
|Half Bronzes are friendly, open, curious and gregarious. Berenj start with Emission Electrical are immune to all electrical attacks.|
|Half Reds are defined by their arrogance, cruelty, selfishness and generally malignant nature. Half Reds are the only evil form of Half Dragons due to other dragons devouring any humanoids they encounter (absolutely no chance of mating). The Reds' desire for human and demihuman maidens is well documented, and most of the time they simply end up eating them. However, sometimes half-reds will allow adventurers to rescue a maiden they have captive making sure to send a present back with the mother.. They like the chaos and evil their bastard children can bring upon the world, and bear their Half Reds no ill will. Sangrians start with Emission Fire are immune to all fire and heat attacks.|
