The Draik (a homophone of drake, an archaic word for a dragon) is a dragon-like Neopet, released on June 25, 2002. They appeared in Neopia as if they had come from another world - later discovered to be Meridell.
Draiks are curious Neopets that like to hunt, and like Scorchios they can breath fire and fly. They are popularly featured as guards, being seen guarding Meridell Castle during the Champions of Meridell plot and Altador and Brightvale during The Faeries' Ruin plot; despite only being around three feet tall. They can support themselves on their tails, like Blumaroos.
Where Draiks were first released, a limited number of them were available through the Create-a-Pet system. No more have been released in that way (at least, not intentionally). Draiks are instead obtained from hatching a Draik Egg. A Draik Egg is a rare, lucrative food item available from the Merifoods, but if taken to the Draik Nest in Meridell, it can be allowed to hatch. It will hatch into a Draik of whatever colour the egg is - either Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, Darigan, Ice, Lost Desert, Pirate, Zombie, or Island. Owning a Draik and visiting the nest will also give the user an avatar.
In the Neopets Trading Card Game, they are associated with the element of Fire.
Draiks are currently available in the following colours:
- As of April 2012, 65 thousand Draiks have been created, with 15,000 having been released through the create-a-pet system, placing them 54th in popularity out of 55 Neopets. They are also featured in 310 different items.
- There was a glitch in 2009 where Draiks were available for creation. It is estimated that about 1,000 were released.
