The sea dragon is a rare aquatic creature, known to 'adopt' the wrecks of ships if they bear any sort of valuable cargo.

They exude a field or web of electricity, which depending on currents and eddies, could deal deadly damage to anyone in proximity to the creatures. This attack does not consume an Action Die, but if it occurs before the Sea Dragon's action in the round, it is rolled on the d20, and if after their action in the round, it is rolled on the d16.

They are themselves immune to electric forces.

They can detect sounds underwater over great distances. They can hide in any sort of undersea formation of suitable size (including shipwrecks, kelp forests, coral reefs, etc.) and remain completely unseen and undetected on a 3-in-5.

They can 'kick' with their tails with great rapidity underwater.

If they venture onto land — a rare occurrence indeed! — they must use an Action Die to remain upright with their diminutive wings, while using their tail to hop or slither.

They can only use their breath weapon once in their lifetime, usually to protect their young or even a mate, after which they expire. They 'breathe' a beam of electricity like a lightning bolt in an 80'-long, 10'-wide cylinder for 6d8+6 damage. A DC 15 Fortitude Save reduces the damage by half.
