e-9 Life Support (total); Always On: -½; Young children must be stabalized either by their parents or by being embedded in a biosphere. They cannot survive in space unaided for long. Older or “adolescent” children may or may not have learned to survive indefinitely in space, but can for at least a little while. In either case, youngsters need to eat a good deal, simply to add mass. Their sense of taste and smell is also somewhat limited.
f-7 Shrinking-2 (DCV +4, Height 38½ cm/1’3″); Mass: 0.78125 kg/1.72 lbs; Knockback Increase: 6; PER Bonus: -4; Reduced END: Zero & Persistent, +1; Extra Time: 1 turn, -1; Extra Time Required: Only At Startup, ½; Concentrate: 0 DCV, -½; Does not provide DCV or Perception modifiers beyond cancelling out those for growth.: -½; Requires “Dragonlore” Skill Roll: -½; Side Effects: 3d6 Stun Drain: 30/Half, -½ 0

12 Minor Draconic Powers

(2) Immunity: The Eleven Lights Of Luathon; Frequency: Fairly Common
20 Dragonlore Multipower (50-pt reserve); The Dragonlore channels the living magic of a dragon’s supernatureal life-force into various effects. This can easily overstrain the unskilled and leaves a lot of information – the user’s species, sex, rough power levels, state of health, approximate age, rough level of skill, etc – available to skilled observers. It requires an unmodified or “flat” skill roll to use (-.25) and a normal skill check to change slots (-.5), has a side effect of draining 2d6 Stun and 2d6 End if you fail to use it (-.5), and creates a unique power signature as above (-.25).

125+ Disadvantages
Physical Limitations :
10 Poor manipulative abilities as dragons (Infrequently, Greatly)
10 Poor understanding of “normal” beings. (Frequently, Slightly)
10 Inherently Magical. Mood and health somewhat affected by current magical environment, readily detected by mages, etc. (Infrequently, Greatly)
10 Can be – eventually – beaten into submission. This temporarily changes “Arrogant Predator” to “Servile & Submissive” – at least long enough for a mission. (Infrequently, Greatly)
10 Adolescent: Physically roughly equivalent to 13-16, Mentally younger. This causes the same kind of problems it causes humans. (Frequently, Slightly)
Psychological Limitations :
20 Arrogant Predator (Very Common, Strong)
15 Greedy (Common, Strong)
10 No Code vrs Killing (Uncommon, Strong)
5 Mild Claustrophobia. This won’t stop them, but things like sneaking thru confined spaces just don’t tend to occur to them. (Uncommon, Moderate)
20 Distinctive Features; Dragon. Concealable with magic.; Concealability: Concealable, 10; Reaction: Extreme, +10
20 Prohibition (QV; Mystic Masters sourcebook) (8-); Capabilities: More Powerful, 15; Non-combat Influence: Extensive, +5; Geographical Area: Unlimited, -0; Actions: Hunting, ×1; Punishment: Harsh, 0
; Must obey the strictures of the Codex Draconis – honorable combat with other dragons, discouraging all-out duels (“Friendly” little dominance-struggles are fine), always doing what they can to frustrate the Great Old Ones, and so on) on pain of being ostracized – and possibly regularly beaten up, enslaved, or even (In really EXTREME cases) slain by all the other dragons on the planet.
15 Hunted; Minions of the Great Old Ones (8-); Capabilities: As Powerful, 10; Non-combat Influence: Extensive, +5; Geographical Area: Unlimited, -0; Actions: Hunting, ×1; Punishment: Harsh, 0
15 Accidental Change to true draconic form when exposed to space conditions. (14-)
15 Secret Identity
; This can get pretty complicated between their longevity, shapeshifting, and pursuers, dragons may have quite a few ID’s. Fortunately, these only tend to involve the host culture; they generally know who each other are.
10 Rivalry; Any other young dragons of the same sex in the vicinity (IE; On the same planet).; Situation: Professional and Romantic, 10; Position: Equal, +0; Rival: NPC, +0
; Dominance-squabbles are an occasional aspect of this, but aren’t too serious as far as dragons are concerned.
5 Reputation. Almost anyone can recognize a dragon and has a general idea of what they do. (11-); Only applies to true dragonform.: -1

Appearance: In “human” – or whatever species was native to their birthworld – form, adolescent dragons usually look like the local adolescents, in humans usually of the 13-16 range. This is, of course, an illusion of their shapeshifting – As Dragons, their “flesh” is made up of ionized plasma and high-energy particles bounded and restrained by fields of energy and animated by a supernatural life-force. Their metabolism is a bizarre mixture of fusion, magic, and total conversion. While they may look and feel solid – outside of their faint stellar luminescence – it’s even more of an illusion then the jelly-like solidity of protoplasm. With effort, they can learn to compact and rearrange their mass to imitate other life forms. Their overall anatomy is fairly famalier, apparently because they – as the firstborn – arcanely “set the pattern” for many of the higher lifeforms native to this universe. While others are patterned after the great old ones, they are usually aberrent. Humans would say that their anatomy resembles a gargoyle’s. They are bisexual, enjoy eating (Although they only need to do so to add mass), reach adolescence at around 600, and reach physical maturity at about 3000. Mental “maturity” lags this considerably…
   In either form, an injured dragon “bleeds” high energy plasma & radiation – giving the impression of a neon bonfire trying to digest an aurora.
