White dragons are the smallest, least intelligent, and most animalistic of the chromatic dragons.[5] White dragons dwell in frigid climes, favoring arctic areas or icy mountains.[6] They are reported to inhabit the island of Beissel in Eiselcross.[7]



A white dragon has feral eyes, a sleek profile, and a spined crest. The scales of a wyrmling white dragon glisten pure white. As the dragon ages, its sheen disappears and some of its scales begin to darken, so that by the time it is old, it is mottled by patches of pale blue and light gray.[6]


  • Multiattack: The dragon makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.[8]
  • Cold Breath: The dragon exhales an icy blast.

White dragons' cold breath can infuse mithral with a subtle cold magic, transforming it into iceflex.[9][10]
