Draige was a human TIE fighter pilot of the Galactic Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing who served as second-in-command of Squadron Four during the Galactic Civil War. Around 4 ABY, the New Republic's Barma Battle Group launched an attack on the 204th at the planet Pandem Nai. Members of Draige's squadron pursued the New Republic pilot and Imperial defector Yrica Quell during the battle, in which Draige perished. Having taken many losses, the fighter wing fled the Pandem Nai system. After taking command of the 204th, Major Soran Keize suggested replacing the late pilot with another named Arron, but ultimately chose to transfer and promote the pilot Palal Seedia to fill Draige's role as Arron had also died by that time.

Notes and references
- Shadow Fall establishes that Draige died in an attack on Pandem Nai. The events of Alphabet Squadron, including the attack, take place in the months after the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Draige must have therefore perished around that year.
- Ultimate Star Wars states that all Galactic Empire TIE fighter pilots were humans.
