I heavily recommand the true dragon wings from with this mod so to perfect your dragonkin ideals.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>VAMPIRE COMPATIBILITY FIX>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
this is the ''how to do'' for drakians who wish to become dracopyres (you might need to set your race to the vampire race via a console command)

Dawnguard vampire lord fix:
Since basicaly we dont have a perfect transfer system for custom race yet you will have to use the console to make the transition to vampire as drakian

console -> player.setrace drakianracevampire
console -> player.setrace drakianracewithhornsAvampire
console -> player.setrace drakianracewithhornsBvampire

this must be done before accepting transformation by harkon or it will not work

you can also try the dawnguard race compatibility fix availlable via this link wich should just do the same thing.

about non dawnguard player: since the drakian use a dawnguard eye for the vampire you will proly end up with empty eye soccet. dont panic just do showracemenu in the console a second eye choice is availlable for dracopyre you just need to switch to it (its the default drakian red eyes)

Now works with alternate starts! go get your shouts from priestess rakatosk


Scaled body: -50% damage from fire
Drakian scales: + 25 base armor
Dragon blood: -20% shoot cooldown

Dragon breaths: as of version 2.1 all drakian can use both grand fire breath and grand ice breath wich are two unique shouts only a drakian can learn inately.
The shouts are both teached to drakian character by a npc in the stormpeak named High priestess Rakatosk but require dragon souls to be used
Both breath have superior damage to their non drakian comparison as well as improved effect and are availlable only to drakian.

New words of power

Grand fire breath:
This shout create a huge fireball wich will push and burn your foe in a line

Ahn - Flare
Ehn - Cinder
Shaar - Incineration

Grand ice breath:
This shout create an ice orb wich will freeze and and encrust in ice for in a line if not potentialy paralise them

Foor - Ice
Raah - Freeze
Mhar - Blizzard


Destruction + 10
conjuration + 5
speech + 5
light armor + 5
alteration + 5
enchanting + 5

the drakians are a race i made out of an inspiration after trying the marshwalker mod by McGarnagle (always wanted a perfect humanlizard). They are basicaly dragonkin and as such have draconic related power.
This race use its own head texture and is so far unique on the nexus. have fun playing it
now since 4.0 you can craft wings for your drakian to wear in the back in the blacksmithing iron section (wings are animated)

A new town has been added in 5.0 wich adds drakian npc too the game and 4 new fellower. More Drakians are bound to show on thamriel in the future
