Commander Drake is a loyal by-the-book military man. While he is all military, he balances the time with his family well. Drake was an ensign on Battleship Odassis and so is familiar with supernatural phenomena. Because of his background experience and loyalty on the Odassis, he was brought into Project Morpheus by Captain Jelco, a place where he excelled in the ranks to become the Executive Officer of the Heavy Battlecruiser Scorpion.
Drake met his wife, Alice, who was brought into the project as a technician in the gene resequencing division of the project. They now have 2 daughters in their teen age years.
