Ranis Drakan is one of the two Vampyres, alongside his sister Vanescula Drakan, who, together, run Meiyerditch for their brother Lord Lowerniel Vergidiyad Drakan. Ranis is very arrogant and egoistic, often patrolling Darkmeyer simply to show himself. Unlike his sister, he blindly listens to his brother and enjoys torturing the citizens (or prisoners) of Meiyerditch.
Ranis is seen during Darkness of Hallowvale quest in a cutscene with his sister and Vanstrom Klause, talking about the blood tithe's progress and enjoying Vanstrom's fresh treat. He then flies off to Castle Drakan. During The Branches of Darkmeyer, Ranis intercepts a Myreque private's way to the Arboretum (location), not entirely fooled by their vampyre disguise. Giving them a painful blood mark, he allowed them to enter the arboretum. After hearing sounds of the Blisterwood Tree being chopped, Ranis realised that it was a human and stormed into the arboretum to kill them. At that point Vanescula walked in as well and murdered her brother, blaming it on the Myreque.
- Ranis is the first member of House Drakan to die at the hands of someone other than the player; Count Draynor, Dessous and Vanstrom Klause have all been slain by the player, whilst Ranis was slain by his own sister Vanescula.
- His combat level is shown to be 412 during cutscenes in The Branches of Darkmeyer. This is only slightly lower than Vanescula's (424) and yet Vanescula appeared to have no trouble killing Ranis.
- Ranis is also the second (close) relative of Lord Drakan to die, after Count Draynor in Vampyre Slayer. At of the end of The Branches of Darkmeyer, Lord Drakan and Vanescula remain the only Drakan family members alive.
- Ranis appears to be wearing a blue version of the darkmeyer torso and trousers.
- The examine text for his corpse implies that vampyres are undead creatures, even though in RuneScape they are not.
