White Drakes are a species of drake living in the Naremdor and Riverlands regions. They defend themselves by belching acid, striking with their claws and biting.
Surprised White Drakes will attack elves, but they will usually flee in other circumstances.
Tamed White Drakes serve as steeds for the Lonen king. Handling them is dangerous, however, for they are not fully domesticated. Drake handling is considered a kingly skill that every prince must learn. Throughout history there are examples of White Drakes killing or severely injuring the king.
