Draks on Planet Icarus come in 12 colors: Night (gold and black), Day (gold and white), Plant (mottled green), Forest (green and brown), Water (green and blue), Desert (mottled tan), Mud (mottled brown), Rain (mottled gray), Fire (gold and red), Earth (brown and white), Wind (white and blue), and Ore (gold and silver). The colors are approximately equal in distribution, and no one color is more important, special, or rare than any other.

As with all species, genetic mutations can occur, although mutated Draklings that survive to adulthood are very rare. Mutations in hatchlings often prevent the egg from surviving or hatching. But on occasion, the mutated eggs can hatch, often producing strangely colored Draklings. These mutations are very rare and occur, on average, in one in every 100 Draklings. Mutation colors that have been documented are: Pearl (pale blue, white, and pale-pink). More will be documented at a later date, perhaps.

All the colors have certain personality traits and physical characteristics that are as ingrained in their genes as their colors. Night Draks, which can be either gender, tend to be serious and thoughtful, very quiet but deeply intelligent. Day Draks, also of either gender, tend to be uplifting and cheerful with a vast sense of humor. Plant Draks, always male, have a sense of humor but tend to be wry and sarcastic, while Water Draks, which are female, are soothing and calm, and always tactful. Forest Draks are female and are relatively energetic with a very optimistic view and always something positive to say, where as Desert Draks, who are males, tend to be good-tempered and honest to a fault, possessing very little tact. Mud Draks, always male, are very meticulous and always think before they act. Rain Draks are female and tend to be impulsive, often sneaky. Fire Draks are male and hot-tempered but very faithful, and will always defend their Knight. Earth Draks can be either gender and are stubborn, decisive, and unshakable. Wind Draks are female and very whimsical, with a tendency to play with the minds of those they wish to confuse. Ore Draks can be either gender and are very stable, personality-wise, always choosing defense over offense in any fight.
