Drakulon was a cool planet in the Drakulon system of the Manchi sector of the Mid Rim Territories. The planet was largely avoided due to the nightmarish stories of the blood-eating natives known as the Drak.
A cool world, Drakulon's flatlands were predominately tundra. With minimal plantlife, the majority of life on the planet evolved into predatory carnivores. The shoreline of the planet's were constantly in flux, freezing and thawing with the changing seasons. Drakulon's star was a white dwarf and orbited within an average of 280 million kilometers.
The Draks believed themselves to be the only intelligent species in galaxy until around 6042 BBY, when an alien starship landed on Drakulon. Most of the aliens aboard were quickly slaughtered while the survivors fled the planet. The Draks found the blood of this new prey to be sweet and intoxicating. The alien starship was followed by the Draks back to their homeworld. Even though neither species had yet to develop hyperdrive technology and it took several weeks to reach each other's planet, this event was the beginning of the Rotronian-Drak Conflicts.
When their area of space was discovered by the Republic, both the Draks and the Rotronians assimilated hyperdrive technology which caused the Rotronian-Drak Conflicts to become more frequent.
The Rotronian-Drak Conflicts continued until the coming of the Galactic Empire whose military forced the two species into an uneasy peace.
