The Mage Dragon (魔竜 Ma ryū, translated Magic Dragon in the Japanese version and Demon Dragon in fan translations and the epilogue of Rekka no Ken) is both a race and a class of Dragons that recurrently appear across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi. An uncommon type of Dragon, Mage Dragons expel either Magic or Dark Breath in order to damage their foes.

History in the SeriesEdit

In Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi and its remake, Mage Dragons are a powerful enemy-only class that, unlike other dragons who deal physical damage, inflict magical damage instead. The class is also immune to magical attacks. Initially appearing as unassuming humans, Mage Dragon Manaketes only assume their dragon forms after releasing the power stored within Magestones.

In Mystery of the Emblem, Mage Dragons lose their immunity to magical damage, but this is compensated for by their base Resistance of 20. This effectively renders them resistant to most spells, save for powerful ones (such as Aura) or those cast by magic users with high Magic. Mage Dragons are still largely connected to Manaketes, shape-shifters who transform into Mage Dragons through the employment of Magestones. The feral Mage Dragons function as exceptions to this rule, acting as standalone entities that are permanently confined to their dragon forms. Mage Dragons in this title employ Magic Breath as their weapon of choice, which, as earlier mentioned, inflict magical instead of physical damage. Any Manakete can transform into a Mage Dragon with the use of a Magestone, regardless of whether or not they are members of the Mage Dragon Tribe.

The Mage Dragon class later reappears again in Binding Blade, where it acts as Idenn's personal class when she is fought as a boss in the Endgame chapter. This version of the class employs Dark Breath as its weapon of choice, one that takes the form of actual fumes of dark breath, claw grapples and tail whips.

In the remake of Mystery of the Emblem, only feral Mage Dragons employ a separate Magic Breath weapon as their means to attack, while Manaketes directly use Magestones as weapons instead. As before, any Manakete can transform into a Mage Dragon with the use of a Magestone, regardless of whether or not they are members of the Mage Dragon Tribe.

ProfileEdit

In the Archanea Series, Mage Dragons are one of the main Dragon Tribes, joining with the Dolhr Empire in order to wrest control of the continent from mankind. They are also known as the Basilisk Tribe, an alternate name that is derived from Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi itself.

In the Elibe Series, Mage Dragons are artificially brought into being by means of corrupting the souls of Divine Dragons. During The Scouring, the Fire Dragons led by Jahn attempted to enlist the aid of the Divine Dragons to create hordes of mindless War Dragons to effectively counter the greater numbers boasted by humanity. The Divine Dragons refused to cooperate, a fact that spurred the Fire Dragons to kidnap Idenn, a member of the Divine Dragon Tribe. Idenn's soul was thereafter corrupted to the point where it shattered, in turn transforming her into a Mage Dragon with no distinct will of her own.

OverviewEdit

AppearanceEdit

Mage Dragons typically resemble Eastern Dragons and possess elongated necks. They are not depicted with wings except in Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, where they are a palette swap of Fire Dragons, and also in Binding Blade.
