Young Solar Dragon: Guide for 5th Edition D&d

Solar Dragons are territorial carnivores, and they behave accordingly.

A young solar dragon might lay claim to an asteroid belt, where food is relatively plentiful, while an ancient solar dragon might consider an entire Wildspace system its hunting ground.

They tend to give a wide berth to Humanoid folk, whom they find violent and tiresome.

Trespassers who are detected in a solar dragon’s lair can expect to be met with resistance, followed by hostility, especially if the lair contains eggs.
