Half-dragons are the result of cross-breeding between dragons and other beings. Dragons rarely deign to willingly mate with creatures not of their kind, so most half-dragons are the result of experiments by wizards and cultists.[1] The most common exception to this rule are blue dragons, who sometimes breed half-dragon offspring to help them control their domains.[2]

Half-dragons resemble powerful examples of the creatures they are spawned from, with draconic features such as scales and leathery wings. They have a weaker version of their draconic parent's breath weapon.[1]

Most half-dragons breed true, creating new races of monsters such as the dracolisk.[1]

On Golarion

The crystal dragon Messentrel the Purple rules an empire of dwarves and mephits on the Plane of Earth, using his half-dragon offspring as proxy rulers.[3]
