Drakes draw their appearance from one of the four [[dracoforms]]. In addition, they can be divided into two broad groups: ''true drakes'', who are dracoforms created by Great Dragons; and ''bred drakes'', who are metahumans born with the traits that manifest at some later point (as of SR4 this distinction had been lost until ''The Clutch of Dragons'').
Drakes are currently in heavy demand by the Great Dragons during the ongoing conflict sparked between Hestaby and Lofwyr. Many have been captured and put into service while others have been killed, and many are in hiding. A few Great Dragons ([[Lofwyr]]
, [[Alamais]] , [[Lung]] , [[Ghostwalker]] ) have also begun to create new true drakes to serve them during this conflict, but some have escaped or otherwise now walk "freely."
