Breath Weapon (Su)

Although it deals negative energy damage, an umbral dragon’s breath weapon does not heal undead creatures.

Ghost Bane (Su)

A young or older umbral dragon’s physical attacks deal damage to incorporeal creatures normally.

Shadow Breath (Su)

Three times per day, an adult or older umbral dragon can breathe a cone of shadows. Creatures who fail a Fortitude save are blinded for 1d4 rounds and take 1 point of Str drain per age category possessed by the dragon. A successful save negates the blindness and reduces Str drain to 1d4 points.

Umbral Scion (Ex)

Umbral dragons have negative energy affinity and are immune to energy drain and death effects.
