Drakes hail from the glacial valleys of southern Orsan where their ancestors hunted large bovine called Tor. They originally called themselves the Qarn (pronounced "Quarn") but since Terrans arrived from Earth, Firedrakes or Drakes have accepted their new name.
All drakes posses magic, just like all pure methyean species. As a race, Drakes are highly thoughtful and can retain almost perfect memories. Because of their ability to store information, they hadn't developed a writing system until they integrated with Methyeans. Once they integrated, Drakes and Methyeans created a vast civilization the laid the foundations for all of Methy's traditions.
