Draenei's are known taxonomically as Dra sapiens (Latin: "wise elder" or "knowing elder"),[3][4] and are members of the Dra genus of bipedal primates in Draenai, the Eredar family. However, in some cases "Draenei" is used to refer to any member of the genus Dra.

Draenei's have a highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed Draenei's to make far greater use of tools than any other species. Mitochondrial DNA and fossil evidence indicates that modern Draenei's originated in Kelindoura about 200,000 years ago roughly first age.[5] With individuals widespread in every continent except Northest Isle, Draeneis are a Endemic species. As of May 2010, the population of Draenei's was about 2 million.[6]

Like most higher Races, Draenei's are Anti social by nature. However, Draenei's are uniquely adept at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization. Draenei's create complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families to Tribes. Social interactions between Draenei's have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of Draenei society.

Draenei's are noted for their desire to understand and influence their environment, seeking to explain and manipulate natural and super natural phenomena's through science, philosophy, mythology and religion. This natural curiosity has led to the development of advanced tools and skills, which are passed down culturally; Draenei's are the only ancient specie known to have hoofed feet, and tails.
