The dragon can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The dragon regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

  • Detect. The dragon makes a Wisdom (Perception) check.
  • Tail Attack. The dragon makes a tail attack.
  • Wing Attack (Costs 2 Actions). The dragon beats its wings. Each creature within 15 feet of the dragon must succeed on a DC 23 Dexterity saving throw or take 16 (2d6 + 9) bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. The dragon can then fly up to half its flying speed.


A solar dragon glows like the sun, with burnished wings that shimmer with waves of heat and gleam like flames. A crown of horns decorates its head. Arrogant and proud, solar dragons see themselves as the originators of light and life in the vastness of space. They treat all living creatures with a kind of detached paternalism, regal creators deigning to involve themselves with their creations.
