Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage.

Euphoria Breath (Recharge 56). The dragon breathes an intoxicating gas at a creature within 5 feet. The target makes a DC 11 Wisdom saving throw . On a failure, the target is confused for 1 minute. The target repeats the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success.

Prismatic Light (3/Day). The dragon’s scales pulse with light. Each creature within 15 feet that can see the dragon makes a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw . On a failure, the creature is magically blinded until the end of its next turn.

Beast Form (1/Day, 50+ Years Old Only). The dragon targets one creature within 15 feet. The target makes a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw . On a failure, it is magically transformed into a harmless Tiny beast, such as a mouse or a songbird, for 1 minute. While in this form, its statistics are unchanged, except it can’t speak or take actions, reactions, or bonus actions. It gains movement modes appropriate to its form, such as a climb or fly speed, of up to 30 feet. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. The effect also ends if the target takes damage.


Invisibility. The dragon and any equipment it wears or carries magically turns invisible . This invisibility ends if the dragon falls unconscious , dismisses the effect, or uses Bite, Euphoria Breath, Prismatic Light, or Beast Form.


Faerie dragons don’t like to fight alone. When forced to do so, they use hit and run tactics, turning visible only to use an ability such as Euphoria Breath or Prismatic Light. When fighting alongside allies, they team up against a foe, turning invisible after each attack. A faerie dragon usually retreats as soon as it is wounded.

Legends and Lore

With an Arcana or Nature check, characters can learn the following:

DC 10 Faerie dragons are tiny dragons native to the land of Faerie. Like normal-size dragons, they love treasure and grow increasingly powerful as they age.

DC 15 When plied with treasure or sweets, faerie dragons can make loyal—if temperamental—familiars.

DC 20 Instead of frost or flame, faerie dragons exhale clouds of stupefying gas. Elder faerie dragons can also use magic to blind their foes or transform them into harmless animals.


A young faerie dragon of up to 30 years old can be convinced to serve a spellcaster as a familiar. As a familiar, it champions its master’s interests but may not be completely obedient. A faerie dragon serves voluntarily and may end its service if its master mistreats it or others.
