Pseudodragons are small, purple creatures of the dragon family. Intelligent, inquisitive and mischevious by nature, they are also blessed with the ability to communicate psychically, and have a number of other small, mundane magical abilities by dint of their blood. They make excellent familiars for a mage who can interest them for long enough.
Ambrosius was the familiar of Drakar, acting as his eyes and ears, and even occasionally using his poisonous sting to cripple the sorcerer’s foes. He disappeared, however, when Drakar took his half-dragon form, and even the sorcerer doesn’t know why or how – perhaps he was consumed by the energies of the ritual, or scared of them, it’s unknown.
