Name: House Draconis

Affiliation: Imperium
Knight World: Adrastapol[2]
Colours: Red and black, quartered
Motto: "In Excelsium Furore!"[1e][2][N.B.]

They are the ruling House of the Knight Houses that reside on Adrastapol and reside within their fortress, Draconspire. The House's Knights are taught to rely upon their skill, courage and determination to win any battle and in battle they have learned to wait for the perfect moment, to launch a killing strike against their opponents. Due to these abilities House Draconis has helped the Imperium win many wars.[2]

The Knights of House Draconis, as with the other Adrastapolian Knight Houses, make use of a rigid, explicit nomenclature to denote status within the House.[1b] In addition, each Knight carries a ceremonial weapon known as a Draconblade, a sword with an internal fuel reservoir that allows the blade to ignite.[1e][1g]
