Purl, as she was called, had platinum scales and appeared even more like a miniature dragon than a typical pseudodragon. She received her unique appearance from permanent spells that were cast upon her.
As was typical of her kind, Purl was playful. Her games included scaring the royal farsann Corwin Vineshigh, who had a fear of dragons. However, in truth, she was protective of Corwin and would growl at anyone treating him unkindly. Likewise, she was extremely protective of her master, Haedrak, and the royal family.
Purl had the improved senses and vision typical of pseudodragons, as well as their resistances. She could communicate telepathically if she desired. Her skin was tougher than a usual pseudodragon, and also unlike them, she could breathe fire from her snout. She also had the innate ability to detect poisons near her, and her breath would neutralize them and cause them to turn black in color.
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 In Lands of Intrigue Book One: Tethyr, Purl is clearly described as a female platinum pseudodragon with unique abilities. Dragons of Faerûn, however, describes Purl as a male half-gold pseudodragon. The half-dragon template was likely used to explain her fire-breathing ability, but her gender-change is likely a mistake, since Lands of Intrigue Book One: Tethyr goes into far more detail about her.
