Go To

Draconis Wicked is an RPG-inspired fantasy webcomic by the creator of Urban Underbrush.

In the distant land of Fabelore, Draconis is a henchman for the villainous Malcorona. While on a mission, Draconis stumbles upon the path to an ancient magic which could give him the power to rule the world. Instead of revealing his discovery to his master, Draconis decides to quest for the magic himself. To succeed, he will need to gather a team, find weapons, and unlock secrets, all while avoiding Malcorona’s attention.

Tropes:

  • Absence of Evidence: Yapix's expedition to the site of the meteor that brought the Aurora Crystal to Fabelore found an unnatural lack of evidence.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: Draconis is far from a saint, but Malcorona is a lot nastier than he is.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Lyric lost her left arm when Malcorona slaughtered her people.
  • The Beastmaster: Snakey can hypnotize animals.
  • Blade on a Stick: Draconis's preferred weapon.
  • Character Development: Draconis slowly starts becoming a better person as the story goes on, even sparing Lyric because he doesn't want to be like Malcorona.
  • Enemy Mine: Lyric eventually joins Draconis in order to bring down Malcorona.
  • Evil Is One Big, Happy Family: Averted with the Enforcers.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Draconis and his companions slowly start growing closer as the journey goes on.

  • Forgot About His Powers: Snakey with their animal control powers.
  • Handicapped Badass: Lyric doesn't let her missing arm slow her down much.
  • Little Bit Beastly: All the inhabitants of Fabelore have the traits of an animal, like how Draconis has dragon traits.
  • Magic Staff: Common among spellcasters.
  • Mysterious Watcher: Pyxis, a dragonfly woman fortuneteller who seems to know things about the protagonists that not even they know and has a tendency to appear and dispense advice before vanishing again.
  • Not So Above It All: Draconis can't help but ride the cable carts when in Chisel Town, and seems to enjoy every second of it.
  • One Person, One Power: Enchanted items can only have one effect. For example, a sword can be enchanted to strike harder or protect its wielder, but not both.
  • Only the Pure of Heart: The barrier around the Aurora Crystal only allows the pure to pass. The group is looking for a passageway to bypass this.

  • Power Crystal: The Aurora Crystal, which is pure magic compressed into a tangible form by a black hole, and makes whoever controls it the most powerful spellcaster in the world.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The group definitely counts.
  • Refusal of the Call: Pyxis implies that Snakey has done this, and tells her to go home and confront her fears.
  • Succession Crisis: The last king of Fabelore ruled and lived for so long that after he finally died, no one could track down his nearest surviving relative(s), and the kingdom started to fall into disarray, since what was left of the royal court was barely listened to as an authority, allowing Malcorona to gather power.
  • The Starscream:
    • Draconis seeks the Aurora Crystal to gain the power to overthrow Malcorona.
    • Cloaker also becomes this after learning just what Draconis is after.
  • Unequal Rites: There are two kinds of spellcasters.
    • Normal spellcasters can use concentration and incantations to draw energy from their own spirits and can craft magical items, some of which anyone can use.
    • Shadow Venom Sorcerors, on the other hand, can only become invisible in darkness and send small objects from their own shadows to someone else's. Only venomous creatures can become Shadow Venom Sorcerors, but not all of them have the ability to do so. Obviously, there is some resentment due to the gap in abilities between the two types.
  • Villain Protagonist: Draconis, though he becomes more heroic as time goes on.
