Thrane Drones

Thrane drones are strong, powerfully built, and trained in all manner of combat and labor skills. They tend to serve as soldiers, guards, masons, blacksmiths, farmers, and other forms of manual laborers. Drones are much larger than the nobles, standing between 7 feet to 8 feet in height, and weighing 300-350 pounds. They tend to have drab or green colored skin, black hair, brown or black eyes, and heavy brows. Drones are duty bound and strive to fulfill their role their culture has allotted them. Drones are typically seen outside their settlements in the presence of other drones, usually under the command of a thrane noble.
