Rifts®: Megaversal Highway™
Blue Dragon of Desire
|Archetype:||Damsel in Distress.||Alignment:||Anarchist.|
|Motivation:||General mischief mostly. However, tragically Chip genetic memory makes him all too aware that he isn’t the sharpest crayon in the box. This is something he solemnly accepts, but he’d love a way to be smart like other dragons.|
|Disposition:||Chip is a well-intentioned trouble-maker still in search of identity.|
|R.C.C.:||Zaayr Crystal Dragon.||Place of Origin:||Hrrac Island.|
|Size:||10.5 feet tall and 28 feet long; appears 3 feet long.||Weight:||25,200lbs (12.6 tons).|
|Appearance:||Chip is most comfortable appearing as a cute dragon (approximately 3 feet long) with a single horn protruding from his forehead, crystalline feathered wings and radiant blue crystal scales. When pleased with himself or happy, the diminutive dragon sparkles. When agitated, angered or frightened the energy within his hide bristles wildly and can even appear to fracture some of the scales.
In humanoid form, Chip has slicked back white hair, ice-blue eyes, a rather usual porcelain complexion and always appears as a child 10-years of age. His favorite colors are powdered blue and white (like his natural hide), but is not particularly fond of clothes (too restrictive!).
In both forms, he has brilliant midnight blue eyes that always appear slightly too big for his head and sparkle with a child-like wonder.

|Dim-witted||The character is a true dim-wit and probably rather child-like. His level of comprehension of an 8-10 year old child. Reduce the number of O.C.C. Skills by four, reduce the Related Skills, Secondary Skills and all Skill Bonuses by half. However, the character gain 4 additional Secondary Skills.|
|Bend Light||Can refract light in such a way as to turn invisible at will (indefinite duration).|
|Bio-Regeneration||Heals 12 per minute; 3 per melee round.|
|Breathe Magic Flame||Can breathe light blue fire that is magical in nature. This fire can inflict damage to energy beings, Entities, Astral Beings, Spirits and the intangible from the physical or Astral planes.|
|Convert Light to Heat Energy||Range: Self; 12 feet (3.6 m) will feel hot and uncomfortable. Duration: 10 minutes per level of experience. Cost: 5 I.S.P. and 1 P.P.E.
Details: This enables the Zaayr to radiate heat. The intensity of the heat can be a comfortable warmth like a heat rock to mega-damage hot. Anybody touching the dragon suffers 1D6 M.D. Since this is a magic ability, the super-heated body does not set everything it touches on fire.
|Crystal Body||Impervious to lasers, resistant to heat and fire (does half damage, including M.D. magic fire and plasma energy)|
|Dimensional Teleport||Can teleport self to any known dimension at no P.P.E. cost.|
|Eye Lasers||The Zaayr can convert and concentrate light to shoot laser beams from its eyes.|
|Multilingual||Magically understands and speaks all languages.|
|Recognize Magic||Recognizes and intuitively knows how to use magical items, scrolls and magic circles without instruction.|
|Reduce Size||Reduce size at will, as small as a dwarf (about 3ft/0.9 m).|
|Reflect Lasers||Duration: 2 minutes per level of experience; for absorption. Cost: 5 to absorb, none to reflect.
Details: The crystalline body of the Zaayr reflects lasers with no damage to the dragon. Furthermore, by spending I.S.P. the hatchling can absorb laser fire (no damage) and harmlessly release it in some other light spectrum.
|Reflect Light||Range: Line of sight up to 3,000 feet (910 m); looks like an area of flashing and blinding light the shape of a dragon. Cost: 3 I.S.P.
Details: When exposed to daylight or bright artificial light, the hatchling can reflect light in such a way as to become a blinding, sparkling area of light like a thousand mirrors in the sunlight. Those attacking are at -5 to ranged strike, -7 to close combat strike, -4 to parry and -4 to dodge. Area affect attacks are at -1 to strike; high quality sunglasses or polarized vision (natural or bionic) reduce penalties by half.
|Sense Dragons||Can sense the presence of dragons up to 4,000 feet (1,219 m); requires line of sight.|
|Sense Ley Lines & Nexuses||Can sense ley lines and nexus points out to 20 miles (3.2 km); cannot pin-point specific locations, merely their presence.|
