The blue dragonfly is a creature of the plains, roving over wide landscapes and devouring many small mammals and birds, from thrushes to prairie dogs. It rarely eats insects, except of the giant variety, as they do not satisfy its hunger.
The blue dragonfly lays its eggs in ponds and small lakes that dot the prairies, and in the eddies of slow-moving rivers.
Farmers keep a careful eye out for blue dragonflies during the hot months, when grass fires may easily be sparked by the creature's lightning breath attack.

Blue dragonflies fight much like their other cousins, but they are much more dangerous and they fear little. As with their brethren, they can breathe and bite during the same round.

Breath Weapon (Su): A blue dragonfly may breathe a line of lightning at one adjacent target once per round as a swift action. The breath inflicts 4 hp of damage (one hp per HD). If the target is attacking the dragonfly in melee, no saving throw is allowed. Other targets are allowed a Reflex save for half damage (DC 16 Con based).
