A pseudodragon was a small dragon-kin known to be playful but shy. Pseudodragons were not true dragons, but were highly valued for their use as wizard's familiars.[citation needed] They were also sometimes dispatched in times of need by an array of deities including Brandobaris, Erevan Ilesere, Gond, Gwaeron Windstrom, Marthammor Duin, Mystra, and Rillifane Rallathil.[3]

DescriptionEdit

Pseudodragons typically had bodies about one foot long, with a two-foot tail and weighed about seven pounds. They could communicate telepathically in common or sylvan and also through the vocalization of animal noises. While pseudodragons could bite, their main weapon was a stinging, poisonous tail, and they had chameleon-like abilities, though their color was usually a brownish red.[citation needed]

EcologyEdit

BehaviorEdit

Their general attitude was similar to that of a small cat but with a cunning intelligence. Pseudodragons loved to hunt vermin and small animals for food. They were wary of evil beings, but were willing to serve as a companion to another being if treated well and respected.[citation needed]

EnvironmentEdit

Pseudodragons inhabited temperate forests in the wild, but they could often be found as familiars in nearly any environment.[citation needed]

Notable PseudodragonsEdit

King Haedrak Rhindaun III of Tethyr had a platinum-colored pseudodragon named Purlakhonthiis.[4]
