The Sky Dragon is a monstrously large mutant dragonfly used as a means of transport. They are incredibly fast due to their powerful wings, light weight, and quickness mutation. A Sky Dragon has eight legs, a blue exoskeleton, long thin insectoid wings, and large red multifaceted eyes. Due to their size, they can carry up to three human-sized creatures comfortably. They can carry up to 900 pounds and move at full speed. They can carry between 901 and 1,800 pounds and still get airborne, but they'll move at half-speed. A Sky Dragon cannot take flight if encumbered by more than 1,800 pounds.

Because of their fragility, a Sky Dragon isn't normally used in combat, although they can defend themselves if attacked. They will bite at an enemy with its mandibles doing 2d8 hit points of damage if successful. A Sky Dragon can also dive from the sky at an incredible rate of speed, ramming into an opponent and doing 3d10 hit points when attacking in this manner. They will ram only as a last resort as they will take 1d10 hit points of damage themselves from the collision.

Mutations: quickness

NOTE: This creature is inspired by the episode "Master of the Stolen Sunsword" from the classic Ruby Spears cartoon "Thundarr the Barbarian." Stay tuned each week for Thundarr Thursday!
