Dragon Knight (Dragonborn, Cavalier Archetype)

The nobility of the dragonborn makes them perfect candidates for the arduous life of a cavalier. However, there are those who embrace both this path and that of their ancient heritage. By drawing upon the draconic blood that flows through their veins, these dragon knights serve the weak and oppressed, while bringing honor to their own people. Class FeaturesThe dragon knight has the following class features. Draconic Mount (Ex)

This is exactly like the cavalier ability of the same name, except that at 11th level, the mount gains the half-dragon template and becomes a dragon for the purposes of determining which spells affect it. At 15th level, the dragon knight’s mount gains spell resistance equal to the dragon knight’s level + 11. This ability replaces mount, expert trainer, and demanding challenge. Dragon Maw (Su)

At 1st level, a dragon knight’s heritage enhances the power of his teeth and jaws. He gains a bite attack that deals 1d4 points of damage. Once per day, the dragon knight can deal 1d6 points of additional energy damage with his bite attack. The damage type depends on his chosen dragon parentage: acid (black, copper, or green), cold (silver or white), electricity (blue or bronze), fire (brass, gold or red). At 5th level and every four levels thereafter, he can deal this energy damage with his bite attack one addition time per day, up to five times per day at 17th level. This ability replaces tactician.
