Sounds great for a Dragonfire Adept (using 3e, Dragon Magic supplement) but if we're forced to use only the PHB Id go with Sorcerer.

4E Realms = Great Taste, Less Filling.

Hmmm, the big thing I see is the bonus to enchantments, so the race must be willing to take away the free will of others. However, without more info on the race itself, the following all come to mind. I'm assuming this is for 3.5 and not pathfinder.

of the two choices you gave, I'd say bard over sorcerer, as bard is more likely to use the strength and DR, as they are more likely to enter melee, plus they're inclined to enchantment spells. Still, with so many classes, I'm inclined to offering some alternative favored classes with weird races that have a level adjustment. Look through the below for ideas.

because the str and cha bonus, DR, and energy resist, plus enchantment, skills and sight
spellthief

because of the cha bonus and enchantment bonus
beguiler from Player's Handbook 2 (especially useful with enchantments and cloaked casting ability)

due to the draconic links, strength, and charism
dragon shaman from Player's Handbook 2

plus the dragonfire adept that Diffan noted.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I say bard, because while fae and dragons are both powerful races that can spawn sorcerous bloodlines, fae are far more known for enchantment and beguiling of mortals. Dragons are known to do the same, but it's practically the modus operandi for any fae race to rely on those things.

Well, I really wasn't thinking I'd limit it to just the PHB classes but off the cuff I couldn't think of anything besides Beguiler that fit so I just said other, write ins welcome. And thank you for the thoughts. Hmm seems the hand full of votes are as torn as we are. lol
And sorry for the delayed reply, I've had so many appointments that I've just been too tired to think this week, and my sink broke. Water everywhere, but we're good now. lol Again sorry.
