NOTE: The Aerial Dragon at the head of the previous entry and all other artwork contained in this section drawn by Marcus Burris, colored by me, and used with permission.

Description: Looks similar to a house cat or a small breed of wild cat, such as an ocelot or bobcat, except that there is something obviously magical about them. They may have small wings, a horn, or glowing eyes. They are highly intelligent and can be taught to talk, but like all Nuameii, they will initially attack bystanders upon creation.

Ecology: usually omnivore, eats anything in its path.
Special: Attacks twice per round if in extremely close range. Second attack comes at the end of the round.
Description: Disgusting and contorted, the chimera is a mix of several Nuameii all twisted into one. They may have the head of a dragon, the head of a fey, and the head of a horse resting uneasily on the body of a tiger. Whatever parts the chimera has, it is a bit clumsy and terribly vicious.
Bonds With: Twisted human beings, those who strike out in misplaced hatred, or those who are intending to destroy something beautiful and good.
Size: varies. Averages 2 foot high at shoulder

Initiative: 6-8 Full Color: varies, natural colors

Health: 7 boxes
Attacks: bite, 3 dice rolled, HD 6, DD 7, DMG 1

Special: Nuameii dogs get Rank 1 subterfuge and elemental magic (earth affinity)
Description: ranging in size from tiny (Chihuahua, DMG becomes 1/3) to massive (Great Dane), and varying in temperament from extremely fierce to lovingly docile, the dog makes an interesting Nuameii or a wonderful companion pet. Dog Nuameii are rare except in the case of small children or loyal servants who are consumed by magic. A dog Nuameii will often be larger than a normal dog, manifest something strange such as glowing eyes, small wings, or horns, or be an odd color, such as crimson red. Even a docile dog Nuameii will naturally attack for a short time after it is created.
Bonds With: Children, those who intentionally let themselves be consumed by magic due to loyalty, servants.

Temperament: Intelligent but frequently cruel.
Ecology: Hunter/scavengers, like to sleep somewhere high in the air, tend to hate small spaces.
Special: dive means diving out of the sky at a target, Aerial Dragons may do this up to two times per round if no other action is taken; the second one comes at the end of the round.
Description: Long and snakelike, with bat-like wings protruding from behind the shoulders. These dragons are quick and will immediately attack if they feel threatened in any way.
Bonds With: Cruelty, fighting for survival, those who love the air, desperation

Ecology: carnivorous, enjoys the hunt
Special: Tail attack only if targets are behind dragon
Description: No land-based Nuameii is larger or more powerful than the Draconis. They have rows of sharp teeth and claws made to rend and tear flesh, their eyes have a slight glow and their snake-like tongues constantly dart in and out, checking the air. They move on all fours and can reach incredible speeds, so long as nothing blocks their way…and very little blocks a dragon.
Bonds With: Powerful people who like to fight
Name: Dragon, Fey
Size: Stands upright, similar in musculature to 8’ tall man.
Usual Spirit Color: almost exclusively silver
Initiative: 7 Full Color: silver/grey, green eyes, black claws

Attacks: claw, roll 4, HD 6, DD 6, DMG 1...Tail, roll 6, HD 8, DD 8, DMG 1
Temperament: Reserved, studious, neutral
Ecology: Omnivorous, seeks solitude and permanent living arrangements.
Special: Uses magic, but unlike humans, the Fey Dragon must spend considerable time doing rituals to make their magic function.
Description: These dragons are intelligent, walk upright, and use complicated rituals in order to cast spells. They seek to avoid conflict, and many wear amulets (often of their own making) that help them to use subterfuge magic quickly. These dragons are exceptionally rare and will avoid all but the most intelligent and civilized visitors, but once befriended, they enjoy long discussions and various board games. Their ‘lair’ often contains furniture, books, Artifacts, and odd nick-nacks. For the first day after they are brought into the world, a Fey Dragon Nuameii will attack almost indiscriminately; afterwards, they will avoid combat at almost any cost.
Bonds With: Those who are powerful through connections or magic; those who die through duty or for honor.
Name: Dragon, Sea
Size: up to 50’ long, serpentine Usual Spirit Color: red or black, can be any
Initiative: 5 Full Color: blue, with highlights the color of its Nuameii form. Green or yellow eyes.
Speed: equivalent to a running horse
Health: 30 Organization: Solitary.
Attacks: bite, roll 10, HD 8, DD 6, DMG 1 ½....Tail swipe, roll 5, HD 7, DD 7, DMG 1
Temperament: Sees humans, and virtually everything else, as tasty. Not very intelligent, not willing to make deals.
Special: breathes water if ‘pulled through’; can use tail swipe once per round regardless of what other actions are taken, and regardless of the positioning of the target. Can use elemental magic (water) at rank 3 if near water.
Ecology: Eats algae, seaweed, fish, humans, and pretty much anything else that gets in its way. Prefers to live in or near the water before being pulled-through, and is confined to it after.
Description: Long, serpentine, awe-inspiring and powerful, the Sea Dragon is the largest of the dragons and the most fearsome. They are shark-like in mentality, except that even sharks can swim alongside one
another; Sea Dragons work alone, and will kill any creature they see as competition for food or territory. As strong as sea dragons are, they often prefer to attack wounded targets and are drawn by blood. A person manifesting a Sea Dragon body part is indistinguishable from someone manifesting a Draconis; however, once fully transformed, arms or hands will shrivel into nothingness.
Bonds With: Mindless meanness, cruel destruction, those who love the sea or sharks.
