Drag-Rides or Machine Dragons, are ancient weapons in the shape of the legendary dragons. They are mechanical armors which increase the wearer's fighting potential. They can be summoned to the wearer by the use of Sword Devices.
Ten years before the start of the series, Drag-Rides were discovered throughout the Seven Ruins. Before its defeat five years ago, only men were allowed to pilot one in the Acadia Empire. Around the time of its fall, it was discovered that women have a higher average than men in compatibility with a Drag-Ride.
There are three common types of Drag-Rides that can be found in the Ruins.
Machine Dragons that are capable of flight and high-speed aerial combat.
Machine Dragons that are specialized for close combat battles on the ground. They are highly maneuverable.

Divine Drag-Rides are Machine Dragons with highly specialized equipment and a fighting potential capable of matching hundreds of the General Purpose Drag-Rides. Because there is only one of each Divine Drag-Ride, they are highly coveted as symbols of a country's overall power.
