Breath Weapon (Su)

A fire drake’s breath weapon is a 20 ft. cone of fire.

Pyrophoric Blood (Ex)

A fire drake’s blood is highly flammable and ignites in a burst of flame upon contact with the air. A creature that makes a successful attack with a slashing or piercing weapon (including natural weapons) against a fire drake must succeed on a Reflex save or take 1d3 points of fire damage from the splashing blood.

Fire Drake Blood
The blood of a fire drake can be sealed in an airtight container and used as a firebomb, equivalent to a flask of alchemist’s fire. It can also be used to create temporary flaming weapons. A weapon coated with fire drake’s blood acts as a flaming weapon for 1d4 rounds or until the first successful hit, whichever comes first.
