Half-dragons are the result of cross-breeding between dragons and other beings. Dragons rarely deign to willingly mate with creatures not of their kind, so most half-dragons are the result of experiments by wizards and cultists.1 The most common exception to this rule are blue dragons, who sometimes breed half-dragon offspring to help them control their domains.2
Half-dragons resemble powerful examples of the creatures they are spawned from, with draconic features such as scales and leathery wings. They have a weaker version of their draconic parent's breath weapon.1
