“Do you have any idea how many humans I've watched die? You're meat. You spoil.”

Nakmor Drack[3] is a member of Ryder's squad. He, along with Vetra, can accompany the Pathfinder on a mission to the planet Kadara in order to obtain information from Sloane Kelly.

Drack is an aged and grizzled veteran, even by krogan standards. He has spent over 1,400 years causing a ruckus in the Milky Way, wearing the title of soldier, mercenary, and at times, pirate. When the loyal, but stubborn, veteran was given the chance to join his clan on a voyage to Andromeda, he had no choice but to sign up. Doing so would present him with a whole new galaxy of stuff to shoot.

Drack is the grandfather of Nexus Superintendent Nakmor Kesh,[4] and his ancestor is Shiagur the Warlord of the Krogan Rebellions - something he has the clan brands to prove.

Drack also has several prothestics and synthetic organs as a result of catastrophic incidents he endured during his centuries long life.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Nakmor Drack first meets Pathfinder Ryder on Eos at a kett base, just as the Pathfinder team is surprised by Drack throwing a killed wraith through a window. Drack is wary of people from the Andromeda Initiative because after Assistant Director William Spender duped the krogan into putting down the Nexus uprising, the Nexus leadership denied responsibility and refused the krogan of their unauthorized compensation: to have administrative representation in Nexus affairs. Despite Drack's estrangement to Nexus personnel, Drack is still fond of Vetra and is courteous to her if she is in Ryder's party. Ever since the krogans' exodus from the Nexus, Drack and the other krogans have started their own colony. Drack has been doing his part to secure the krogan colony by taking out kett bases. After Ryder activated the Remnant vault and made Eos hospitable, Drack can be found again fighting kett at the outpost site. After defeating the kett, Drack will be impressed by Ryder's accomplishments. Concluding that they work well together, Drack formally joins Ryder's crew.

After being a member of the squad for a while and having his loyalty mission completed, Ryder receives an email from Kesh asking them to look out for her grandfather. The Pathfinder finds him in the medical bay with Lexi, who is explaining that a lot of his redundant organs are failing and he needs to start being more careful although he is dismissive, insisting that he is fine and that spending time talking about it will not change anything. When Ryder asks him what's wrong with him, Drack explains that his arm, side, hip and part of his leg have been replaced by prosthetics and that he has a thread balancing across his spine to reduce strain. He shares some of his history, recalling how he fought through the Krogan Rebellions only to watch his culture disintegrate before making a living as a mercenary and later a pirate but despite all of this combat experience, he was still taken out by "one idiot with a pack of frag grenades". Drack confesses that after the accident, his body initially continuously rejected the implants designed to keep him functional and that his prosthetics wouldn't sync properly which caused him a huge amount of pain. He fell into a depression and lost all purpose in his life, almost succumbing to it until a shaman handed him the recently-born Kesh. Telling him she was worthless and bound to die gave Drack a renewed sense of purpose, leading him to seek help which pulled him from his spiralling depression.[5]


Drack asks Ryder to help him recover a stolen krogan transport containing the krogan seed vault. Korgan babies require the nutrients from the transport's plants in order to avoid health complications, making the transport irreplaceable. Drack and Ryder track the missing transport and fight the outlaw thieves. The Pathfinder team finds evidence that the outlaws are conspiring with William Spender. On the way, they rescue Vorn, the krogans' botanist who also happens to be integral to the krogans' agricultural development. Aroane, the leader of the outlaws, is eventually apprehended and Ryder can choose to let Drack drop him to his death or incarcerate him in order to use him against Spender.


Note: †Rank 6 of each Skill is unavailable to Drack until his loyalty mission Nakmor Drack: A Future for our People is completed.


Drack is armed with a Ruzad shotgun.


Received upon returning to the Tempest after activating the remnant vault on Eos:

About Your Dad
To: Ryder
From: Drack

Vetra told me what happened to your dad. I've lost a lot of people over the years. Figured you could use some cheering up. Or at least a distraction.

This usually helps me:

(Drack has attached 37 images of various rifles and shotguns. Two are duplicate images. Many are low-res or watermarked.)


Received after landing at Kadara Port:

Matriarch credits
To: Ryder
From: Drack

Last time I was on Kadara, I met this asari at Kralla's who said she'd let me in on a little score.

Apparently, there's this matriarch who came over on the Nexus. Only she died in stasis. My contact says she's next in line for the old lady's credits. A lot of credits. And get this: she says she'll split them with me. Trouble is, there's red tape. Transfer fees. And she's having trouble mustering up the credits to clear 'em. Asked me if I could cover the transfer cost.

I tried to bring Vetra in on this, but she says it's a scam. I'm not so sure. Seems like a pretty good opportunity to me.


RE: Matriarch credits
To: Ryder
From: Drack

It was a scam.

Do me a favor and don't tell Vetra, okay?

Received as part of obtaining Elaaden: A New World:

This sounds bad, kid
To: Ryder
From: Drack

Thought I'd show you what Strux sent me. A transcript of an audio log that's got me worried about the colony. Sounds like Morda's cooking up something. Don't know what to think:

Morda: Stop arguing with me, Brenk! It's payback time for the Initiative.
Brenk: They don't care about us.
Morda: But they will. Soon they're gonna know that I'm Overlord. And once I execute my plan, there'll be no denying that the krogan rule Heleus. Then they'll come begging to us.
Brenk: Okay, Morda. I'll get a team together. Gather everything we need.
Morda: No krogan bows down to the Nexus again.
