Destructive cousins to magma dragons, lava drakes delight in terrorizing weaker creatures near their volcanic homes. Larger, and more powerfully built, than other drakes, lava drakes are as arrogant as their much smarter true dragon cousins. Naturally stealthy, they can leverage their ability to submerge and burrow through molten rock to approach and terrorize prey.1[citation needed]

Covered in thick scales of protective black volcanic rock, they launch area attacks devastating to all who are not protected from the intense heat in which they dwell.1[citation needed]

On Golarion

The Hold of Belkzen is home to a number of lava drakes, for instance, they live in the haunted borderland of Whisperfall2 and around the Brimstone Haruspex in the Kodar Mountains.3
