An illustration of Draconian anatomy.

Draconians are a race of humanoid dragons created by both Bahamut and Tiamat originally as soldiers during the Dragon Wars. They resemble bipedal dragons with bodies that don't support wings or a breath weapon.

However after the year 800AR, most of the Draconians left their masters to live a more civilized life rather than be soldiers for the rest of their life.


The average Draconian is quite taller than an average human, growing up to an average of 6'4-6'8 depending what build they are and can live up to a maximum of 500 years. Their speech is not at all slurred unlike Lizardmen, Medusas or such creatures like that.

Much of their race nowadays are seen around cities and towns doing business and trading as well as simply living a city life. A Draconian child (usually called a Dragonling) is also common to see in schools, parks and other types of civilized areas.


Draconians are very well known for their amazing ability to endure even the most brutal of blows from any type of weapon. Draconian characters gain bonus AC due to their very thick hide of scales but are so bulky and large that they are unable to be as nimble and fast as an Elf or Goblin but make up for it with their brute strength. Due to their dragon blood, a Draconian can also withstand dragon breath depending on the type of dragon they are related to.
