Male dragons never develop into the winged monsters of myth. At most, their forelegs grow vestigial spurs where wing membrane might have been.

Once they have fully matured, males immediately seek out the lairs of adult females. When they find one, they move into her lair and spend the rest of their lives there, hunting for her and defending her young. They will aggressively defend her nest, and many would-be dragon hunters have been lost to their fiery breath and crushing blows from their tails.
—From Codex entry: Dragon

For any given high dragon, usually a dozen or so drakes live in her lair and fight among themselves for their right to mate. Drakes live only about 100 years, and often much less when the casualties of combat are considered.

  • It is possible to steal from drakes.
  • It is possible to get a spare drake scale that has no use. This is done by fighting Kolgrim at Mountain Top; a drake will fight alongside him.
  • Due to a translation error, the drakes are known as "small dragons" in the Polish language version of the game.
