Tom Drake

The Knight

Sir Thomakos "Tom" Vincent Drake, Dragon-Blooded, the Demon Slayer of Illikon, at your service. First a bastard son born to a noble and a ‘barbarian,’ then adopted as the only male heir, Tom was knighted for reckless but selfless acts of heroism. Since then, he has only proven again and again how truly noble of a soul he has… if you can tolerate his jokes, arrogance, smart mouth, and tendency to run headlong into danger. Handsome and charming and he knows it, Tom is a force to be reckoned with in more ways than one - particularly with his insatiable thirst for blood and battle, bearing a temper like a firestorm and the behavior of a berserker.

But now he is beginning to discover why he could do so many feats others considered almost superhuman. There is a darkness within his soul.

And now he is a werewolf.

Tom must find the truth about who and what he really is... and why the entire world suddenly seems so concerned about what fate has in store for him.


Despite his many flaws, Tom is chivalrous at heart, always doing his best to embody every tenant of chivalry: courage, loyalty, generosity, honesty... he has no trouble with those. Courtesy, however, can occasionally be a struggle, and he is not entirely above twisting the others in strange ways - except that he will never tell a lie, and perhaps above all else, he detests dishonesty.


Combined with his incredible prowess in battle, Tom's ferocity is his most terrifying trait. He has a bloodlust he cannot always control or resist, struggling with a constant insatiable hunger for violence and death. Viciousness courses through his veins hotter than his own blood, and he longs always for combat.

Wit and Charm

Tom has a mouth that almost never stops. He cannot resist a smart or sometimes stupid remark. He taunts his foes, teases his friends, and will provide biting retorts even to his own superiors - which has landed him in trouble more than once. However, he is not always caustic, also capable of great charm - especially with women.


To look at Tom with his size, strength, and handsomeness, and to hear him run his mouth, one might assume he is not very intelligent - but they would discover quite the opposite. Tom has an insatiable appetite for knowledge, reading books obsessively and finding clever ways to defeat his enemies, regardless of how much foolish taunting is involved. He is also quite the inspiring leader and cunning tactician, willing to give his own life to protect all men serving him.

Some books featuring this character

Wulfgard: The Hunt Never Ends

Wulfgard: The Hunt Never Ends is a collection of stories, each of which stand on its own, but they also build upon each other in a consecutive order, bridging a gap between a novel and short story collection. These stories follow monster hunter Caiden Voros and his partner Gwen Vergil as they embark on tales of mystery, horror, and adventure to track down monsters – the living dead, beast-men, shape-shifters, spirits, and many more – that would do harm to innocent lives and, by whatever means necessary, put a stop to their terrors. Their motives, however, are not always what they seem.

Wulfgard: The Prophecy of the Six, Book I - Knightfall (REVISION)

Sir Thomakos "Tom" Drake is a knight of the Achaean frontier city of Illikon. Together with his close friends and fellow soldiers, he wants only to protect his city and its people from any who would threaten them. But the Achaean Empire to which they swear loyalty is always seeking out new conflicts that put his city in danger.

When Sir Scaevius, Left Hand of the Emperor, arrives in Illikon to recruit Sir Drake to help fight the massing barbarian alliance to the North, Tom has no choice but to obey. But he does not obey without protest, and soon he finds himself fighting not only the barbarians, but his own superiors as well. Meanwhile, strange things begin happening to him. He suffers blackouts, and at night he is plagued by terrifying nightmares. Even worse, he finds himself being stalked by horrific monsters... werewolves. Hated by his superiors, hunted by beasts and assassins, Tom Drake must fight for his home, his life, and even his mind. The events that are about to unfold will change his life, and the world, forever.

Originally released in 2015, now prepare yourself to experience the revised and updated edition of Knightfall before the coming of the second book, Bloodmoon.

The revision will feature many new scenes, edits throughout, updates to better fit in with other stories of the universe, new characters, new arcs, and much more.
