Breath Weapon 

15-foot cone, euphoria for 1d6 rounds, DC 17 Fort negates. Creatures affected by euphoria are staggered, sickened, and immune to fear effects for the duration. A greater faerie dragon can use this breath weapon once every 1d4 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based. 

Change Shape (Su) 

A greater or older monarch faerie dragon can take any animal or humanoid form 4/day as if using polymorph. 

Sleep Breath (Su) 

In addition to a cone of euphoria gas, a greater monarch faerie dragon can breathe a cone of sleep gas. Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Will save or fall asleep for 1d6 rounds plus a number of additional round equal to his Constitution modifier. 


A greater monarch faerie dragon casts spells as a 7th-level sorcerer.

Woodland Stride (Ex) 

An adult monarch faerie dragon may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at its normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. Thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion, however, still affect it.
