Draaglom was initially an internet nomad, having tried many a browser game without finding any of them being particularly interesting. Then, on a cybernations alliance forum, he was given an invite to the eRepublik beta; his fate was sealed.
A small band of alliance members set off for the New World, with the intention of creating an American Business empire. Draaglom didn't share this dream, however: he jumped ship in the Atlantic and instead made his birthplace London, UK.
Upon arriving in London - shortly before mayoral election day - Draaglom was greeted by Piperbunny, who was running for mayor. Her welcome and the party's ideologies inspired him to join the People's Communist Party and also to become a soldier in The People's Army. Seeing the existence of a Communist Party, he then invited Stan Wephen, who quickly became a prominent voice in the People's Communist Party and the United Kingdom.
Draaglom, however, stayed a relative unknown; lacking the time or the energy for politics and awed by the business might of those companies already established, he was a quiet but stalwart People's Communist Party member and remained so for many months.
Towards the tail-end of beta erepublik, bugs seemed more and more common - particularly the food bug, where the end of the day food calculation would simply stop happening. Draaglom, in autumn '08, was struck; despite bug reports, he found eating impossible for several months. With wellness spiraling, he abandoned the game.
Finally, in the beginning of November 08, Stan Wephen brought news of eRepublik v1; with high hopes he would be able to eat again, Draaglom returned to the game and started his Life in earnest. He became an active member of the UK community, and has held a number of roles:
- London Congress member Nov 08
- UK Minister of Trade Dec 08
- Wales Congress member Apr 09
- East Midlands Congress member Sep/Oct 09
- UK Minister of Trade Nov/Dec 09
- Party president of the People's Communist Party Nov 09
