He got in the school in the eighth grade, and is now currently a freshman. He has a dorm room with his two best friends, Lightning the Hedgehog and Trap the Bear.
The coyote was born a music prodigy, able to play almost every instrument you can think of. Many children thought he was an amazing sensation in his childhood and would make it huge in the future. As of now, he is even better;able to play professional sheet music that not even college seniors can master yet. His main instrument is the piano, as he enjoys playing it the most and he's the best at it.

Drake is all about the music. Being a prodigy, music makes up most of his life, and loves talking about it. He doesn't mind what type of music people listen to, whether it would be country or rap or even classical. He will also help out anyone who has trouble with music so that they can be as amazing as he is.
Drake is very bittersweet kind of person. He's only nice to people who are nice back to him. The coyote goes by "An eye for and eye" and treats others how they treat him. His voice makes him sound rather harsh sounding which makes it hard for him to have friends.
