Draaza was a female monitor lizard with brown scales and amber eyes. She was hatched in the Southlands. Her equipment included a leather shoulder belt and scabbard slung over her shoulder; a broadsword with a mouse's skull made into the pommel stone, and a small heart-shaped stone on a pendant around her neck, a gift from her husband that she never took off. Draaza used to be one of Mad Eyes' soldiers, but when Martin II attacked him, she was able to shake herself free from his hypnotic power and run without looking back. Her focus from that point on was her family, not war.
Her daughter was Stryker Blackclaw.
