The subject of this spell becomes able to use a breath weapon identical to that of a dragon, chosen from one of the following elements: acid, cold, electricity, or fire. Regardless of which damage type is chosen, the breath weapon is a supernatural ability that deals 1d6 points of damage per level (or point of Challenge Rating, if applicable) of the caster or the target, whichever is higher, with a successful Reflex save halving the damage dealt. The breath weapon is usable as a standard action and may take the shape of either a line or a cone, each of which is proportional to the subject's size (see the table below). Each time the breath weapon is used in this fashion, the subject must wait 1 round before they can use it again.

Breath Weapon Dimensions By Size
Caster Size Line* (Length) Cone** (Length)
Tiny 30 ft. 15 ft.
Small 40 ft. 20 ft.
Medium 60 ft. 30 ft.
Large 80 ft. 40 ft.
Huge 100 ft. 50 ft.
Gargantuan 120 ft. 60 ft.
Colossal 140 ft. 70 ft.
*A line is always 5 feet high and 5 feet wide.
**A cone is as high and wide as its length.

Alternatively, this spell may be used to empower a weapon the target of the spell is using, allowing them to add the breath weapon damage to a successful melee attack made with the designated weapon. If the weapon is capable of making multiple attacks in a single round, breath weapon damage is only added to the first successful attack, after which the breath weapon must take a round of downtime as normal.
