The Drakarans of Kas'Drak (Ghoekhnael 0323) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a reptillianoid appearance and technologically sophisticated sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Drakarans or Drak Ne'Vha (Humans and Vargr call them Drakarans) resemble man-sized, one-eyed tyrannosaurs covered in beautiful jeweled armour that flashes with all colours of the spectrum.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Drakarans inhabit the Taakas Yh'Drak, which means in their tongue worlds of our race. About thirty-even worlds comprise this territory which is centered on Kas'Drak, their homeworld. 1-3 jump routes connect it to a larger area of Vargr worlds and some human systems (most of which are Zhodani). It is situated in parts of the Ghoekhnael and Chit Botshti sectors.

Drakarans from wealthy families typically enjoy hunting for Sport. Those raised on their homeworld or other frontier planets (rather than in asteroid colonies) will often practice with traditional hunting weapons and riding animals. These include morning-stars, throwing spears, and lances, often wielded from a mount. Even today Drak explorers and hunters often ride and fight from large two-legged Drakaran Riding Lizards.

Culture & Society (Ethnology)[edit]

The Drak Ne'Vha are a starfaring race of traders, warriors, seekers, uncompromising in their search for 'truth', yet bound to the ancient, cruel customs developed for survival on their brutal homeworld.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]
