This sleek, gold-scaled draconic creature looks both regal and intelligent. A leather harness holds a saddle between its wings, and it bears a massive glaive.

SQ rider bond


Rider Bond (Su)

A dragonkin can form a permanent bond with its rider. Once this bond is made, a dragonkin cannot form another rider bond until its current rider dies. A dragonkin and its rider can communicate with each other as if they both had telepathy 100 ft. In combat, when a rider is mounted on his dragonkin, both creatures roll initiative separately and treat the highest result as their single result.
