The White Dragon (白竜 Howaito doragon) 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, White Dragons form a group of Laguz that is able to assume the form of a dragon sporting white-colored scales at will. Breathing fumes of White Breath in order to fend off their enemies, White Dragons are, like all other dragon-based classes, vulnerable to dragon-slaying weapons and Thunder Magic.
Alongside the Red Dragons and Black Dragons, White 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 fuelling 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 named member of the White Dragons to appear in the games is Nasir. Although his granddaughter Ena is referred to as a Red Dragon in both titles she appears in, she is not purely a Red Dragon, and is instead a hybrid cross between a White Dragon and a Red Dragon. The color of her scales reflects the fact, taking on a hue of pink that is achieved through the melding of red and white. Alongside the fact that she herself is the mate of a Black Dragon, the existence of Ena is 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 his second son Kurthnaga, who makes the radical decision to open the doors of the country to the world for the first time in eons.
Unlike Red Dragon and Black Dragons, White Dragons are magic-oriented, excelling in Magic and Resistance, faring poorly in terms of Strength and Defense. In Path of Radiance, the attacks of White Dragons are strength-oriented, while in Radiant Dawn, their attacks are magic-oriented instead.

Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn
- White Dragons could be considered to be the Laguz counterpart to both the Divine and Mage Dragons, owing to the fact that they breathe what appears to be light-infused flames, alongside the fact that their Radiant Dawn iteration is magic-oriented.
