[[:Category:{{{FanArt}}}|Fan art of Drake Thunderbrand]]

Elementalist Drake Thunderbrand is a dwarven wizard and friend of Lady Allura, as well as a member of the Arcana Pansophical.  As an NPC, he is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Drake has short, black hair with a beard "trimmed fairly fine." When he first encountered Vox Machina in "Desperate Measures" (4x02), he was wearing red leathers and was apparently unarmed, though carrying a gnarled, curved wand. The wand almost spiraled, in a messed-up sort of way, with a well-treated surface.[2]

Personality Edit

Somewhat exuberant in personality,[3] Drake can also be quite soft—both concerned and supportive—toward Lady Allura.[4][5]

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Drake Thunderbrand may be related to House Thunderbrand in Kraghammer.[presumed]

Years before the attack of the Chroma Conclave, Drake was part of an adventuring party with Lady Allura, Lady Kima, Sirus, Dohla, and Ghenn. They sealed the ancient red dragon Thordak in the Elemental Plane of Fire, at the cost of Sirus, Dohla, and Ghenn's lives.

"Desperate Measures" (4x02) Edit

Drake accompanied Allura to Greyskull Keep after the Chroma Conclave's assault on Emon.

"In Ruins" (4x03) Edit

Drake used an elemental transportation spell to transport himself and Allura to Vasselheim.

"The Coming Storm" (6x04) Edit

"The Siege of Emon" (6x09) Edit

Relationships Edit

Character Information Edit

Abilities Edit

In "Desperate Measures" (4x02), Allura introduced Drake as an elementalist, which is not a standard class in 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons.

In "In Ruins" (4x03), Drake employed an unusual means of transportation using elemental electricity, much to the surprise and awe of Vox Machina. It is a custom spell of his own design.[6]
