The drakkin are a human race, similar to the barbarians and the erudites. Unlike those races, the drakkin have a touch of dragon blood. This dragon heritage is evident in their appearance, scaly skin, marking, hair and sometimes horns that mirror the dragon that gifted them their heritage.
Drakkin are slighter than humans and have a sort of fierce beauty. Their heritage gives them the ability to exhale a damaging breath, though nothing as strong as the powerful breath weapons of true dragons. They share some of the adaptability of their human ancestors, and they hold no strong opinions of the races of Norrath. They live in Crescent Reach under the protective wings of their progenitor dragons.
