The most covetous of all dragons, forever seeking to increase their treasure hoards. They are exceptionally vain, which is reflected in their proud bearing and disdainful expression. The small scales of a wyrmling red dragon are a bright glossy scarlet, making the dragon easily spotted by predators and hunters, so it stays underground and does not venture outside until it is more able to take care of itself. Toward the end of young age, the scales turn a deeper red, and the glossy texture is replaced by a smooth, dull finish. As the dragon grows older, the scales become large, thick, and as strong as metal. The neck frill and wings are an ash blue or purple-gray toward the edges, becoming darker with age. The pupils of a red dragon fade as it ages; the oldest red dragons have eyes that resemble molten lava orbs.

Because red dragons are
so confident, they seldom pause to Appraise an adversary. On spotting a target,
they make a snap decision whether to attack, using one of many strategies worked
out ahead of time. A red dragon lands to attack small, weak creatures with its
claws and bite rather than obliterating them with its breath weapon, so as not
to destroy any treasure they might be carrying.
Breath Weapon (Su): A red dragon has one type of breath weapon, a cone of fire.
object (Sp): A juvenile or older red dragon can use this ability
as the spell of the same name, once per day per age category.
Other Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day-suggestion (old or older);
the path (ancient or older), discern
location (great wyrm).
Skills: Appraise, Bluff, and Jump are considered class skills for red dragons.
