Shortly before the War of the Lance, the cleric Wyrllish, the mage Dracart and the ancient Red Dragon Harkiel developed a process to corrupt dragon eggs into draconians. The Dragonarmies of Takhisis initially used the already-captured eggs of good Metallic Dragons to create draconians with evil tendencies.
The Dragon Highlords used draconians as crack troops during the War of the Lance. Because of their connection to dragons, draconians are immune to dragonfear and seem to worship the evil dragons. Draconians are more likely to follow orders than the typical ogre or goblin (or mercenary, for that matter), some can use magic—clerical and magic-user spells, and each draconian has a special attack that is carried out at the end of its life. Draconians are immune to human diseases and are rumored to have a lifespan of nearly 1,000 years.
During the latter years of the War of the Lance, the desperate dragonarmies performed the corruption ritual on the eggs of evil Chromatic Dragons, resulting in draconians with good tendencies known as the Noble Draconians.
The "original" draconian types used during the War of the Lance are as follows: Baaz, Kapak, Sivak, Bozak and Aurak. Of these five types, Auraks are the only draconians without wings, and the Sivaks are the only ones who can truly fly.
