this Codru-Ji was a noted swoop racer and the leader of the Hawkbat Gang, working below the surface of the planet Coruscant during the years following the Battle of Naboo. It was said that Drako never lost a race, although he was never without an ion blaster when he did race. Drako was killed in a race he set up, challenging young Anakin Skywalker. In order to ensure victory, Drako tried to shot Skywalker. However, he failed to see a repusorlift transport block his path. Drako's swoop smashed into the transport, killing him instantly.
