Eta Draconis' two main home worlds are hot and semi-arid. The first, called Sam'Kech'Qlah (Amazing Dry Place) is a large, dry planet, measuring approximately 9,500 miles (15,200 kilometers) in diameter. Twelve moons revolve around Sam'Kech'Qlah: the largest, three-quarters the size of Earth's moon, is surrounded by a thick, life-sustaining atmosphere.
The second home world, called Seck'Ha'Lak'Bekn (Wondrous Wet Land), is more abundant in water. She is the same size as the first planet but has only five continents, four of which are as dry and barren as those found on Sam'Kech'Qlah. The fifth landmass contains a huge, inland sea that makes the interior less desolate. A chain of rivers flow towards this mini-ocean from the mountain range that rims is northern shore. Forests, consisting of exotic tree ferns, conifers, and primitive deciduous trees and bushes, stretch down, in unbroken vistas, to the beaches' edge. Red or blue mountains, streaked with purple, soar above her continents. Amid such extravagant natural settings, many strange and wonderful life forms - insect, amphibian, dinosaurian and reptilian - make their homes. And here, on this world stands the sacred cultural capital of the Eta Draconians - the site of her most sacred temples and institutions of higher living.

Dhinnabarrada, named after the emu footed beings of Australian Aboriginal mythology, are well known for their mastery of technology and scientific research. They helped design the very weapons, vehicles, armor and other ordnance for the Draconian Empire. Most of this technology, the Dhinnabarrada designed were made to prevent the Galactic Federation from using their weapons and made them difficult for enemies of the Draconian Empire to handle correctly. The Dhinnabarrada are the most hardiest of Eta Draconians and can survive in harsh conditions, making the perfect soldiers for the Empire. It is rumored that a Dhinnabarrada managed to hold his breath for 15 minutes in the vacuum of space when he ejected from his crippled fighter spacecraft. His name was Yooneeara, and he is considered a legend among his species. He survived and managed to hijack the fighter spacecraft that destroyed his spacecraft.
I based the Dhinnabarrada species off of a Dilophosaurian version of Zupaysaurus, coming up with the crests was a major pain. I wanted to swap the double crests for double curled crests for originality. I swear it sort of resembles Wilford Wasatch's mustache or a musk ox's horns. I was tempted to make the crests pink in honor of Markiplier, but it would make it stand out in a battlefield. Hopefully someone makes fanart associating the Dhinnabarrada with Markiplier one day, that would be hilarious.

Cosmic People of Light Powers is a Czech and Slovak UFO religion founded in the 1990s and centered on Ivo A. Benda. Their belief system is based upon the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations communicating with Benda and other contactees since October 1997 telepathically and later even by direct personal contact. They are considered to be the most distinctive UFO religion in the Czech Republic.
