Dragonblood - Royal bloodline

I would like to give credit to the creator(s) of the Dragonblood race as this race is just a variation of that.

If you would like to make changes to this please discuss them beforehand in the discussion section. Or feel free to make a variant of you own.


Dragonbloods are a proud and noble race... the royal bloodline in this race are even more proud and noble, to the point where it can cause issues and confrontations between other races. (i.e. other dragonbloods and dragon-type races)

Physical Description[edit]

Dragonbloods are similar to half-dragons, draconic-huminoids, and dragonborns but never gain full physical features of a dragon. Their average height ranges from 6' to 8' and average weight of 180lbs to 650lbs. They mostly resemble humans. In dragon form they mostly resemble their bloodline, which depends on the type of dragon; they also gain claws, teeth, scales, and tail, but do not gain wings. The best way to identify one is looking at their dragon eyes, as it is the only part of them that does not change from form to form.


Royal Dragonbloods are mostly kind and protective, and tend to get along with most other races except other dragon-type races.


Most often they are Lawful as they are more noble than other dragon-type races and feel the need to stay in command.


Royal Dragonbloods feel comfortable living in most areas, but prefer higher class.


Royal Dragonbloods mostly worship dragon deities.


Dragonbloods speak Common and Draconic.
