A pseudodragon is a small dragon-kin known to be playful but shy. Pseudodragons are not true dragons and are highly valued for their use as wizard's familiars. They can vocalize animal noises, as well as speak common or sylvan via telepathy. Their general attitude is similar to a small cat but with a cunning intelligence.
Pseudodragons typically have bodies about one foot long, with a two foot tail and weigh about 7 lbs. They can communicate telepathically and also through the vocalization of animal noises. While pseudodragons can bite, their main weapon is a stinging, poison tail and they have chameleon like abilities, though their color is usually a brownish red.
Their general attitude is similar to a small cat but with a cunning intelligence. Pseudodragons love to hunt vermin and small animals for food. They are wary of evil beings, but are willing to serve as a companion to another being if treated well and respected.
Pseudodragons inhabit temperate forests in the wild, but they can often be found as familiars in nearly any environment.
