A Manakete from the Earth Tribe in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
|First game||Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi|
|Created by||Intelligent Systems|
Manakete is both a species and a class in the Fire Emblem series. They are dragons who have sealed their draconic power within Dragonstones and thereafter assumed a human-like form while still retaining some of their draconic traits. Both Manaketes and Dragons who haven't become Manaketes are also known as Dragon Brethren. Some of them still have the ability to shift between a humanoid and a draconic form without the use of a Dragonstone while some of those Dragons choose to purely retain their draconic form.
All the pure blooded Dragon Brethren have a really long lifespan and usually outlive humans by several thousands of years. Manakete can breeds with humans and give birth to half-breeds that will retain most of their draconic features and the ability to shapeshift into Dragons. The descendants of the Manakete or the half breeds will also retain some of their draconic powers generations after those descendants lost the ability to turn into Dragons.
Some very powerful Dragon Brethren/Manakete are even seen as gods by humanity and are worshiped across entire countries, including Naga, Duma, Mila, Forseti, Grima, Anankos and Loptyr. The Dragon Brethren live in tribes based on their draconic powers their leader is also the leader of the Divine Dragons, Naga.
