Draconians are a race of humanoid dragons, also called 'lizard men' and dragon-men because they walk upright and are human sized. Draconians have scaly bodies like a dragon's, a snout and short stubby tail.
Created in order to fill the ranks of the dragonarmies of the Dark Queen Takhisis, the generals of the dragonarmies generally used draconians as shock troops in the War of the Lance. They are not natural creatures of Krynn. They were created from the eggs of metallic dragons using dark magic called the corruption ritual. These rituals were carried out by Dracart, a wizard of the Black Robes, Wyrllish, a priest of Takhisis, and Harkiel, a dark-hearted red dragon. One egg yielded dozens of young draconians. Depending on the color of the dragon egg five types of base draconians were created: Aurak, Baaz, Bozak, Kapak and Sivak. Later the good-aligned noble draconians were created in an experiment to use the eggs of evil dragons. There are flame, vapor, lightning, venom, and frost variants.
After the War of the Lance the draconians scattered to various regions of Ansalon. During the Chaos War a small group of the draconians find eggs containing female draconians. After the females hatched those draconians form the nation of Teyr, establishing the draconian race.
