Castle Drakan is the home of Lowerniel Drakan, the vampyre lord of Morytania, and his siblings Vanescula and Ranis, built as an exact replica of the Drakan family's castle on Vampyrium. Located in the direct center of Morytania, just north of Meiyerditch and on the west end of Darkmeyer, it looms over the Sanguinesti region and reminds all that are trapped there of the vampyres' dominance. A number of Vyrewatch and Vampyre juveniles can be seen wandering the grounds.

Apart from the Drakans, the huge castle complex is known to provide residence to other members of the vampyric nobility, such as Tenebra and Solomon Lamescus. Werewolf servants from Canifis also reside there. The castle is known to have a dungeon and a library.

In the quest The Darkness of Hallowvale the player must assist Safalaan Hallow, a member of The Myreque in drawing the castle from the north, west and south. Also, below the castle walls at a certain point of drawing the castle, players see a cutscene with Vanstrom Klause speaking to Lord Drakan's relatives and a vampyre juvinate.

The roof of Castle Drakan can currently only be accessed by players during The Lord of Vampyrium or during and after River of Blood. Players also visit the Vampyrium counterpart of the castle during The Lord of Vampyrium.

The cellar of Castle Drakan can be accessed during and after River of Blood, where it is now being used as an ore refinery, for daeyalt ore.

Before The Lord of Vampyrium update in 2015 the castle was a cosmetic complex with four, small, individual towers but was later redesigned to just one large tower with the release of The Lord of Vampyrium

There are several methods to reach the roof after River of Blood's completion.
