** Dragonborn of Bahamut were introduced in 3.5th edition as members of other races who underwent a transformation, gaining draconic characteristics and powers so they could fight evil dragons in the service of Bahamut, the god of good dragons.
*** The Dragonborn concept was expanded to a standard character race in 4th Edition and beyond, basically so that players had an easy and balanced option if they wanted to play as a dragon. (Other options, such as half-dragons or even true dragons themselves, require additional work to balance their powerful racial abilities.) Dragonborn are only vaguely related to actual dragons (a common version of their creation myth involves them rising from the blood of the ancient dragon god Io, making them part divine). They're also noted as not having tails (a trait of actual Half-Dragons), but a lot of players ignore that rule, and [[UnreliableIllustrator even some official artwork depicts Dragonborn with tails]].
** The ''Races of the Dragon'' sourcebook also introduced spellscales, a vivacious and magically-inclined race of humanoids covered in fine, glimmering scales.

He has clawed fingers and toes, yellow eyes like past dragons such as Onaga, and, when deprived of his armour, scales and spikes covering his skin. Basically, he looks like a mixture between a dragon and an [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orc]].

When [[UnstoppableRage her rage reaches its peak]], she can transform into full dragon form for a short time.


** [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-dragons]] are creatures with one human parent and one dragon parent, and tend to have scales, horns, tails, wings and a breath weapon paired with a humanoid body. Draconic creatures are a generation or two removed from their dragon ancestor, but still show a strong dragon heritage thanks to scales and the like.

** The humble [[TheGoomba kobold]] takes pride in having the blood of dragons, and sometimes "dragonwrought" kobolds are hatched with wings and other signs of a draconic heritage. Since they are said to have age categories just like a red or silver dragon, you could even classify them as true dragons themselves -- dragonwrought kobolds are given the Dragon type, after all.
