Drakes were draconic creatures that were distantly related to wyverns.[citation needed] They were smaller and not as powerful as dragons but were much easier to train, so they were commonly used as mounts.[5]

They were often used as guards by dragons, or they were given to the dragons' humanoid servants.[5][1]
