Etymology[edit]

  • Drackmage is a portmanteau of Dracky and mage, which means 'magic user'; this species is the first in the line to use magic. Its other names, Magidrakee and WizDracky, also allude to this capacity.
  • The Japanese name タホドラキー (tahodorakī) is actually a result of the limited Famicom/NES memory of the original Dragon Quest. Due to this limited memory, not all the Japanese kana could be included, so Yujii Horii was required to alter タフドラキー (tafudorakī -- i.e. "tough-dracky") to タホドラキー, which could actually be spelled with the limited kana available.
