Dactraft is a medium-sized reptilian creature with orange skin. It sports a large yellow beak and a jagged crest on the back of its head. It has small ridges above its eyes, giving it a permanently angry look. It has a yellow patch on its stomach and yellow wing membranes. Each wing has two large white claws and each foot has three toes (two in front and one in the back). Dactraft has a red band on its crest, a red band on each arm below the elbow, two red bands on each wing, and a red band around its waist. Dactraft also has a large tapering tail with two red bands and a medium-sized yellow flame on the end.
Dactrafts have been seen glowing brightly at night, sitting on top of large rocks. It is said that a single one of its flames would burn forever.
