Creating a Wyvern Lord
Wyvern Lords can choose between dealing high damage and risking themself as the Slayer Wyvern Lord or staying in the back, dealing medium damage with throwing weapons but defending allies as the Shadow Wyvern Lord.
Slayer Wyvern Lord

Wyvern Lord Class Features
All Wyvern Lords share these class features.
Wyvern Wrath: You get to use the Wyvern Wrath power as a Wyvern Lord.
Wyvern Legends: When a Wyvern Lord is within 3 squares of an ally, he and the ally get a +1 bonus to saving throws.
Wyvern Rider: At level 1, you automatically get a wyvern mount and the Mounted Combat feat. Your wyvern shares your speed and stats. Your wyvern levels with you. If your wyvern dies, it returns in 1d6 days (You must have had at least 1 extended rest for it to return)
A Wyvern Lord's powers are called Wyvernions and are learned as the Wyvern Lord levels up, as the wyvern becomes closer to the Wyvern Lord. A list can be found here: Wyvern Lord Powers (4e Power List).
