Draconians are a bipedal species with features resembling that of a dragon. They are covered in scales, possess a thick tail and generally range in height from five feet to seven feet. They possess sharp claws and prehensile thumbs. The draconian race was created approximately 68,000 years ago to act as the foot soldiers of the dragons in the Revolt of Man.
Draconians are generally tribal in nature, living in the wilds of Faran, away from the civilized world which tends to distrust them. Some draconians have managed to integrate themselves into multispecial societies, but as a rule they avoid large populations.
Relatively few draconians revere the gods, thinking them to be pale imitations of their long-absent dragon masters of legend.

Origin of the word
The word ‘Draconian’ has been shamelessly stolen from the Dragonlance series. Its closest equivalent in Dungeons & Dragons would be a Dragonborn.
