Its eyes glow like red-hot embers, particularly whenthe creature is angry or in battle. The head of a smoke drake is that of a cobra.
The most territorial of the drakes, the smoke drake is known to hold a grudge against those who wrong it. The creatures are skilled trackers, able to follow prey for long distances if necessary. The smoke drake can breath out a cone of dusty smoke upon its target when threatened.
A smoke drake speaks Draconic and either Auran or Ignan and can be found on the Paraelemental Plane of Smoke.
