The power to use the abilities of Balaur. Variation of Dragon Physiology.

Also Called

  • Balaur Mimicry


User with this ability either is or can transform into Balaur, a dragon-like creature with multiple heads, stony or steely serpentine scales, wings, fins, and legs. Most stories describe them with multiple heads, ranging in number from three to twelve, but some tales depict them with a single head or one head in front and one at the end of their tails. Often the balaur was depicted as a creature of epic proportions, one that "plant its footsteps on the mountain and touch the violet skies with its lofty crest."

While the balaur resembles dragons in many ways, weavers of Romanian lore point out that they have several distinct traits. In many tales, they’re actually snakes transformed during long periods of isolation underground. The snake turned balaur grows one head for each year of isolation. Some legends accredit them with the common dragon ability of fire-breathing, but others ascribe to them the ability to influence weather and cause thunder, lightning, and hailstones. Even more unusual was the purported formation of precious stones from the saliva of a balaur (a risky way to gain treasure). Almost universally, the balaur represented evil, being strong, wicked, and cruel. Though they acted according to their beast-like nature, in many accounts they also possessed human-like voices and ability to speak and reason.
