Dragonkith - General Prestige Class
This is a general Prestige class that may be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Dragonkith are creatures that serve and aid dragons. They live with or near a dragon or a group of dragons, acting as servants or peers (depending on the individual dragon and the dragonkith). In return for service, over time, the dragon bestows upon a dragonkith special abilities - and even physical changes - using complex rituals known only to their kind.
Although sometimes they are humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, or gnomes, dragonkith are just as often members of other intelligent species, such as lizardfolk, giants, troglodytes, lammasu, pseudodragons, titans, dragonnes, beholders, lamias, and others - even, rarely, other dragons. Thus, dragonkith are a diverse group; no one class is more likely than another to become one, and many dragonkith do not have classes at all (they are monsters).
NPC dragonkith are usually found in the company of their dragon companion. Sometimes they are alone, completing some errand for the dragon. Occasionally they work in small, tight-knit groups of dragonkith, all pledged either to the same dragon or to allied dragons.
