Details

Spike drakes are a rare and formidable variation of the drake family. These creatures are primarily raised in rocky plains in the mountains, which have helped shape their unique features and traits. They are much larger than regular horses, with an average weight of 4 tons and a length and height of a foot or two more than a horse. The spike drake's most notable feature is its thick hide, which acts as armor and protects the more vulnerable areas, such as its neck and belly, during combat.

Spike drakes reach maturity at just 1 month and have a lifespan of around 40 years. They are nomads and travel in groups called herds, which are led by an alpha drake. These herds tend to travel in packs, with the alpha drake being the strongest combatant among them. This position is constantly being challenged by new rivals, and the alpha must always be on alert to maintain its leadership status. Alpha drakes are distinguishable from other males as their skin turns blue, indicating their strength and status.

While non-alpha drakes are difficult to tame, it is possible to do so by either hatching and raising them or beating them in frontal combat. Once tamed, spike drakes are known for their incredible strength and loyalty. They are capable of pulling heavy carts filled with iron or breaking boulders, making them useful for heavy lifting and transportation.

In summary, spike drakes are a rare and impressive creature that has adapted to its rocky environment. While they are difficult to tame, once tamed, they are extremely loyal and strong companions. Their strength and combat abilities make them a valuable addition to any adventurer.
