The Black Dragon is both a race and a class of Dragon tribe Laguz that is exclusive to the Tellius Series of Fire Emblem. Like their name suggests, Black Dragons form a group of Laguz that is able to assume the form of a dragon sporting ebon-coloured scales at will. Breathing fumes of Black Breath in order to fend off their enemies, Black Dragons are, like all other dragon-based classes, vulnerable to dragon-slaying weapons and Thunder Magic.


Alongside the Red Dragons and White Dragons, Black Dragons inhabit the nation of Goldoa. Under the leadership of Dheginsea, the entire country was isolated from the rest of Tellius, and its inhabitants rarely, if at all, encountered anyone hailing from foreign countries. This is primarily attributed to a pact that Dheginsea made with the goddess Ashera herself to prevent the outbreak of war; all too familiar with his people's potential to devastate with little effort and their inability to restrain themselves when their instinct for fighting is triggered, he thus executed such a drastic measure in order to prevent any possibility of them either initiating or fueling conflicts on the continent.

The Dragon tribe Laguz observe a social hierarchy that ranks the different divisions based on their might; the Red Dragons are considered to be the weakest division, followed by the White Dragons and finally the Black Dragons. Much like how the society of Gallia functions, leadership is granted to the division that is recognized as the strongest. As the Black Dragons are indisputably regarded to possess unparalleled might, leadership of the country is therefore conferred to them, with a small group making up its royal family. The only known members of the family include Dheginsea himself, his sons Rajaion and Kurthnaga, his daughter Almedha, and his illegitimate Branded grandson Soren.

Ena, the Red and White Dragon hybrid, is the wife of Rajaion. During the events of both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, she is known to be pregnant with his child. Following the events of Radiant Dawn, Ena conceives the child, marking the birth of a new member of the Dragon tribe Laguz in centuries. Both Ena's heritage as a Red and White Dragon hybrid and her position as Rajaion's mate point towards her standing as testament to the fact that the members of the Dragon tribe Laguz are permitted to cross-mate, unrestricted by the color of their scales.

Following the defeat of Dheginsea in the Tower of Guidance during the events of Radiant Dawn, Goldoa's monarchy is inherited by Kurthnaga, who makes the radical decision to open the doors of the country to the world for the first time in eons.

  • Black Dragons could be roughly compared to Dark Dragons, owing to the fact that they are both dragons that sport black scales and breathe dark-infused breath.
