'''Drakes''' are humanoid dragon-like beings, and one of the [[races]] of Innworld. Though they are the distant descendants of the great [[Dragons]] of old, they only bear a distant resemblance to them, and, unlike them, they are mortal beings who can level.

'''Drakes''' are humanoid dragons and one of the races of the Innworld. They are descendants of [[Dragons]], though very distantly, as they have very little in common.

Like their draconic ancestors, Drakes possess sharp claws; if appropriately sharpened, they are tough enough to pierce [[Antinium]] carpace.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.wordpress.com/2017/10/14/3-23-l/ Chapter 3.23]</ref> Like Dragons', their necks are adorned with spines, which can bleach over time for certain individuals, similar to balding in humans.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2019/06/25/6-28/ Chapter 6.28]</ref> They also possess tails, the positioning of which is a large part of Drake body language.

Drakes have scales in varied colors from Green, Red, Pink, Blue, Yellow and Dark.
 
Drakes have scales in varied colors from Green, Red, Pink, Blue, Yellow and Dark, and some have even coloration patterns. Drakes with Green scales are the most common, while scales very bright (like Red) or very dark are the least likely to be seen, especially without patterns, as they are rare. Even rarer are scales that have a bright glow, a unique flame coloration and a midnight black color.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2018/08/21/5-13/ Chapter 5.13]</ref>
 
 
Drakes bear a certain resemblance to [[Lizardfolk]], but it is a grievous ''faux pas'' to point this out to a Drake.

=== Customs ===
 
 
Drakes have many customs regarding their tails. They consider their tails to be private body parts, and it is considered erotic to touch a drake's tail.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.wordpress.com/2017/04/17/side-story-mating-rituals/ Side Story – Mating Rituals]</ref> Another Drake tradition revolving around tails, is in regards to their marriage customs: proposal among drakes is done by placing a ring around the tail of the drake they wish to marry.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.wordpress.com/2017/04/22/2-16/ Chapter 2.16]</ref>

Some of the male Drakes wear rather little clothing, sometimes leaving their chests completely bare save for a light cloak. Female ones usually had more on.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2016/09/14/1-14/ Chapter 1.14]</ref>

=== Humans ===
 
Humans had landed on their shores millennia ago, and the Drakes never forgave the land they had ceded to them. Drakes always considered them a threat and a foe. It was more of a bad rivalry now, as neither side did more than send armies to the [[Blood Fields]] each year to kill each other. But give them half a chance and the Drakes would happily invade the north, while the Humans would do the same.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2018/04/07/4-26-m/ Chapter 4.26 M]</ref>
 
 
There were quite a few Drakes who’d decided to live in Human lands, for all they were actively discouraged from doing so by the Drake cities. But while they hadn’t invaded each other in decades, the Humans and Drakes were still nominally at war. If a Drake [General] led his soldiers past [[Liscor]], or a Human [Lord] moved past the [[Blood Fields]], it might start a war again.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2018/06/19/4-47/ Chapter 4.47]</ref>
