The first drakes originated from Zipacna's back. They are one of our worlds largest flying creatures- their heads alone are the size of a person. Like the wyverns, drakes are more bird like in that their front limbs are their wings. With a wingspan as large as a small army, they can fly higher than any other species of dragons. They are most often been seen in the air, as they also nest in peak mountain caves that are out of reach for most people. Of all dragons, drakes scales are the thinnest which makes them vulnerable when on the ground, but their lightness is also why they can fly as high as they do.
