Weredragons are created, rarely, when a curse of Lycanthropy spell is cast. Their physical characteristics are based on those of red dragons, although they behave quite differently. Thier transformations follow the same rules as other Lycanthropes. In thier human form, they look like normal humans, except that thier skin has a reddish tint. In hybrid form, they have a humanoid shape, but have red scales, claws, and a tail, as well as a reptillian face. They are also extremely large. They have no wings, and cannot fly. In Dragon form, they look like a miniature Red Dragon (about half size)
Combat: Weredragons will usually ignore any humans or demihumans which they see, but, if they are attacked, they won't hesitate to defend themselves. They never stay in human form ,if possible. If they do, they will attack with thier bare hands, as they usually carry no weapons. In hybrid form, they will attack with thier claws (1d8) and bite (3d8). If they wish to, they can grab ahold of thier opponent with thier teeth. If they choose to do so, they cannot attack with thier claws that turn. They may retain that hold for as long as they wish, with thier opponent taking 2d8 damage each turn. In addition, there is a 5% chance of instant death each round this hold is maintained. They can attack with thier claws while gripping them. If they are torn free by forceful means, the victim recieves 4d6 damage, and continues to take 1d4 damage each round, untill the wound is COMPLETELY healed. In thier dragon form, they have all the attacks of the hybrid form, although they get a -3 to thaco while gripping.
Habitat: Weredragons are very rare, and have no real niche in society. They prefer to live alone, in small dwelling which they protect ferociously. They most often stay there for thier whole life. Rarely do two Weredragons meet, but if they do, they usually ignore eachother completely, unless one is attempting to take over the other's dwelling. The same goes for humans and demihumans. If they aren't bothered, they won't bother. They are also snubbed by true dragons, who consider them inferior. Thus, they usually lead a peacefull and solitary lifestyle.
Ecology: Weredragons primarily eat small animals which live near thier dwellings. They never eat the remains of warriors they have killed, considering it disgusting and disrespectfull. Weredragons almost never mate amongst themselves, let alone humans. However, if they do mate with humans, the child will have a 25% chance of being a Weredragon. If it is human, it will take on redish skin of a Weredragon in its human form, although it will not be able to transform into any other form. Humans with a Weredragon parents will have an extra 5% chance of becoming any Lycanthrope when bitten by one, and an extra 10% chance of becoming a Weredragon
