Shocking Grasp: A lightning draconian may deliver a shocking grasp attack a number of time per day equal to 3 + its Charisma score.

If the opponent is wearing metal armor this attack receives a +3 attack bonus.

Death Throes: When a lightning draconian dies, its body explodes in a massive charge of electricity that first strikes the nearest creature inflicting +12 damage, then arcs to a number of secondary targets equal to the draconian’s total level. These secondary bolts inflict +6 damage. The lightning draconian’s armor, weapons, and equipment all suffer maximum damage from its death throes.

Inspired by Dragons: When under the command of a dragon a lightning draconian gains a +1 bonus to all attack rolls and saving throws.

Low Metabolism: A lightning draconian can survive on one-tenth of the food and water it takes to sustain a human.
