The Dragonfire is a large (2' wingspan) mutated dragonfly found in actively volcanic areas as well as geothermic zones such as hot springs and geysers. A Dragonfire has red wingtips and glowing red eyes. The most striking feature is that the Dragonfire has a constant fiery aura, giving it the appearance of being completely engulfed in flames. Due to this blazing outer skin, the Dragonfire is difficult to get close to, giving it a form of natural armor as few attackers wish to get close enough to enter combat with one. Also, the aura gives the Dragonfire a natural immunity to all fire and fire-based attacks.

A Dragonfire does not physically attack a victim by biting or clawing. Rather, the Dragonfire's aura alone is enough to do damage to any who come within 5 feet of one. If a Dragonfire passes close enough to a PC, the character will take 1d10 hit points of damage unless he makes a save vs. energy weapons. Dragonfires are fairly docile, but a curious Dragonfire can inadvertently be a deadly one. And heaven help the PC who has a swarm of Dragonfires descend around him. His clothes could burst into flames. And those grenades in his backpack should be kept cool...

Mutations: fiery aura, natural armor, reflective epidermis (fire)
