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.

Physiology Edit

Appearance Edit

Like their draconic ancestors, Drakes possess sharp claws; if appropriately sharpened, they are tough enough to pierce Antinium carpace.[1] Like Dragons', their necks are adorned with spines, which can bleach over time for certain individuals, similar to balding in humans.[2] 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, 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.[3]

Drakes bear a certain resemblance to Lizardfolk, but it is a grievous faux pas to point this out to a Drake.

Magical Abilities Edit

Special Abilities Edit

Subraces Edit

Oldblood Drakes Edit

Scorchling Edit

Behavior and Culture Edit

Personality Edit

Drakes like dry climate, enjoy the sun, and open spaces.[4]

Customs Edit

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.[5] 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.[6]

Prejudices and Superstitions Edit

Language Edit

Clothing Habits Edit

Most Drakes wear ancient-Greek style togas or robes. Some of them wear sarongs, though likely only female ones.[7]

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.[8]

Sexuality Edit

History Edit

Relations Edit

Lizardfolk Edit

Many drakes share a very strong hatred to Lizardfolk.

Gnolls Edit

Humans Edit

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.[9]

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.[10]

Dullahans Edit

Antinium Edit

Goblins Edit

Relations with other races Edit

Trivia Edit

  • Like Dragons, they really love shiny objects.[11]
  • Drakes usually don't consider Humans attractive, describing them as too fleshy.
  • For gender-intended symbols, Drakes use a straight tail for men and a curly tail for women.[12]
  • Kebabs are the favorite food of Drakes.[13]
  • If there was a ranking for bad-tempered species, Drakes would probably be at the top of that list, competing for first place with Centaurs and Minotaurs.[14]
  • There is a saying about Drakes: One Drake’s trouble, two is a fight, three will burn your house down, and four means war.[15]
  • The Triumph of Scales is a classic Drake military book.[16]
  • Due to Drakes extreme greedy nature, someone once said that if the world was destroyed and there was only dust left, Drakes would fight over who had the most dust.[17]
  • Turnscale is a derogatory term for homosexuales used by Drakes.[18]
  • Drakes don’t have that many mages. They don’t take to magic as some other species do. They say it’s dishonorable, too easy—not military.[19]
