The white dragon (Japanese: 白竜 White Dragon) class is one of the laguz classes found in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.



Physical appearance

In dragon form, white dragons possess white scales and appear slightly sleeker than other dragons, but are still fairly large and muscular compared to other laguz tribes. In human form, white dragons generally have pale blue hair, as well as the bronze skin tone and red facial markings typical of all dragons.


Not much is stated about the white dragons, but it can be interpreted that they are extremely loyal to the Goldoan royal family, being willing to lay down their lives to aid Dheginsea. Additionally, in gameplay, no enemy white dragons will attack or counterattack Kurthnaga or Ena.


The powers of the white dragons differs between Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn. In Path of Radiance, their breath attacks are physical like red dragons, but in Radiant Dawn, they were changed to have magical breath attacks. Like the herons and other dragon tribes, white dragons also possess a heightened ability to sense other laguz nearby and the ability to use sending stones.

Life cycle and reproduction

Little is known about the life expectancy of the white dragons, but it can be assumed that they possess the typical longevity of the dragons, as Nasir is old enough to be Ena's grandfather despite appearing to be in his mid-30s. Additionally, they share the same problems with having children that other dragons do, as Ena and Rajaion's child was the first dragon of any tribe to be born in hundreds of years.
