This is right. That drake "died" doesn't mean he's an NPC. "NPC" means a player doesn't control it, and Draken still does. We could
have done a thing were I was given the character to control, to reinforce the "losing his mind thing" but we didn't, mostly because it would be more fun, for Draken especially, to retain control of his character. And just for clarity, this definition would mean Carrie, Dean and the Wanderer are NPCs, but in this game I sorta act both as GM and player. Any other of my characters (which is none so far), is fair game.
But what I said and how the rules go isn't terribly important in this situation: Since the issue has been raised, let's treat this on a case-basis and make the decision that will make everyone happy. The rules and my instructions only serve to make that happen in the general. That's also what I did with the head thing; I knew his power said it would kill him, but it seemed more fun for it to make him insane.
So yeah, Drake's suggestion is a good one. If anyone seriously objects to him being alive, then he's dead. If not, he's alive. We can come up with whatever reason for him being alive, the most logical to me being that he would have had time to react before Bel stabbed him, but it's not really important. What's important is a decision we can agree on. Regarding overpoweredness, we could rule that Drake get's an ongoing minus for being "dead" to his roll, so that it's clear he's not immortal.
