The Drae are a tall and slender bipedal race. They are typically between 5.5 and 6.5 feet tall, and weight between 150 and 200 pounds. They have greyish coloured skin and rounded features, and a flattened face compared to most humanoid type species.

The Drae Empire was once a dominant force in the galaxy, spanning nearly a 5th of the total volume. Ravaged by a long series of bitter and viscous civil wars, their empire was shattered into countless pieces and fragments. In the following years most of the remaining Drae civilization was since destroyed by a number of angry former subjects.

What remains of the Drae people is scattered across much of the galaxy. While a few small factions remain, most of their people have found it more practical to integrate themselves into whatever empire is dominant in their region. It has become common for the Drae to trade their advanced technology and technical expertise for protection against any number of species which still hold grudges against them.
