THE LEGENDARY DRAKEN KNIGHTS
AND THEIR DRAGONS

THE FAR-FAMED DRAGONS OF VARZUUN: Ridden by the Draken Knights, who, for centuries, enforced the uneasy peace between the three great races. Now all but a remnant, the Draken and their dragons once protected all Varzuun against the dreaded Abominations, smollek and smeddeg hordes, and other threats.

Clearly, the legendary Draken knights and their fabled Dragons comprise the most powerful quasi-religious institution in all Varzuun. The Drakens, for centuries, enforced the uneasy peace between the three great races. Now all but a remnant, the Drakens and their dragons once protected all Varzuun against the Abominations.

⬆ THE DEEPEST BOND: DRAKEN & DRAGON
DRAVEN AND KORVALIS --- Digital (Photoshop™), 2021

The bond between Draken and dragon is not a telepathic or psionic link, but rather a spiritual bond. The wyrm cannot sense the wyr'der's thoughts, nor can the the Draken mentally command his dragon. The communication is more one of simple empathy: One gets a feeling of the other's state or intent. This does allow a limited functioning as if the two are one.

DRAVEN AND KORVALIS:
AN ANCIENT PROPHECY FULFILLED?

DRAVEN VALENCOURT:  Originally squire to the renowned knight Flavius Franciscus, the young Draken Ascendant is now a wyr'der (contraction of Wyrm Rider), and rider of the magnificent striped dragon, Korvalis. Draven, like most Draken knights, is master of the long composite bow. He is also remarkably skilled with the dragonsword and dracodirk.

KORVALIS: Some say this great wyrm may be the dragon of an ancient prophecy, as he is the only known dragon with a striped pattern, hinted in that prophecy. Some say Draven is an outsider and doesn't belong among the Draken knights. Will Draven and Korvalis restore the Draken Knights to their former glory?

⬆ COSTUME STUDY FOR DRAKEN ASCENDANT
Digital (Photoshop™), 2020

For Draven, being a Draken knight is more than just being a great fighter. A devout servant of A-nak, and having been mentored by Flavius, Draven always starts and ends his day in prayer, kneeling before the altar of A-nak.

Placeholder


⬆ Bows and crossbows are the prime weapons of the Draken Knights, as they can shoot targets from the air, but when on land, they use the Dragonsword. It has an extended handle, meant for use against very large monsters, and a long serrated blade for the intimidation factor. The Drakodirk is solely for use in duels, against anyone who would dare challenge the authority of the Draken Knight, including, if necessary, another Draken.
