Nix may be young, but she has high dreams for her future; she's already found a forte in her race's ability to blend into shadows (aided by her wand of deeper darkness while she's above ground), and dreams that one day she'll advance that with some rogue levels, and hone her abilities into the ultimate stealthy weapons.

Uses Rapidstrike and Improved Rapidstrike as feats from the Draconomicon. The Shadow Dragon race is also from the Draconomicon.

Breath Weapon (Su): A shadow dragon's breath weapon is a 30' cone of billowing, smoky shadows with an energy drain effect. Creatures within the cone gain 2 negative levels (DC 20 to remove). A successful Reflex save reduces the number of levels by half (round down).

Shadow Blend (Su): In any condition of illumination other than full daylight, a very young or older shadow dragon can disappear into the shadows, giving it total concealment. Artificial illumination, even a light or continual flame spell, does not negate this ability. A daylight spell, however, does.
