The Beast Tribe appears in both Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and also Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. This tribe is consisted of four types of Laguz; Cat, Wolf, Tiger, and Lion. The beast tribe resides mainly in Gallia, the continent led by Caineghis, the Beast King. There they are surrounded by mountain and sea, so that they're protected. In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, the introduction of the Wolf Laguz also introduces the kingdom of Hatari, where the fourth and final Beast Tribe member, the Wolves, reside. These Laguz fight with their claws and teeth to wreak havoc on their enemy.
However, these beasts have two main weaknesses. These are both fire magic, and also arrows. The two, from a distance, can take a large amount of health from any beast tribe member.
The Cat laguz excel in speed. They are the Beorc equivalent to the Myrmidon in the sense that they are extremely agile and can usually double an opponent but lack physical strength. They are faster than the wolves but weaker than any other species of the Beast Tribe.
These Tigers use strength to their advantage. The can strike a huge amount of damage to their enemies, yet they can only usually do it once. Their speed is horribly low, so they almost never double an enemy. However, their defense is high enough to tank a spot and defend areas that need be defended. These laguz are similar to that of a Knight Beorc in the sense that they have considerably high defense and strength but lack the speed to double an enemy.
Lions are considered among the superior members of the Beast tribe. These are both fast and strong, while still keeping a high defense. The only lions that you encounter are of the highest authority. Only kings and/or nobility are known to be a lion, and are arguably the strongest members of the Beast Tribe.
Wolves are the latest edition to the Beast Tribe and are introduced in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn as opposed to Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance like the preceding Laguz were. Wolves make up the moderate statistics in terms of the Beast Tribe, being slower than a Cat but faster than a Tiger while maintaining the opposite in strength and defense.
