Before Combat The lich dragon casts mage armor and shield on itself as soon as it detects intruders.

During Combat The lich dragon opens combat with its breath weapon, trying to catch as many enemies in its effect as possible. It continues to use its breath weapon as often as it is able, but if the majority of its foes seem resistant to fire damage, it forgoes its breath weapon in favor of melee attacks. The dragon uses Awesome Blow to attempt to knock opponents off the bridge into the molten canal below.

Morale Bound to the city by ancient magics, the dragon fights until destroyed.
