- The offspring of a dragon and a human.
- Half-dragon physiology
A user of this ability is or can transform into a Dragonborn: an offspring of Dragonoid and human ancestry. Dragonborns are a rare and very powerful type of creature mostly shown through popular culture and media instead of actual folklore.
Common writers find the concept of having a woman being coupled with a mindless beast rather disturbing; to accommodate for this, the writers will often augment the dragon's intellect a bit to have the dragonborn be comparable to a Demigod. An also common trate among dragonborns (particularly in Dungeons and Dragons) is that they tend look more dragonoid than humanoid; pretty much a dragon with the shape of a human being. If a dragonborn is to be treated like a demigod, then the dragonborn gain a weaker extent of powers and weaknesses in relation to the dragon he/she is related to.
A dragonborn with the ancestry of a Dragon god should be considered under the same catagory as a Demigod because of type of gods, despite them being also dragons, are still gods by definition. Despite the matter though, dragonborns of dragon god descent are often argued to be a much stronger case in contrast to a Nephilim of archangel descent.
