"Sons of strength", the title given to the Laguz by the tales of old. The Laguz are a species of animal-like beings form Tellius in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. These beings have the ability to transform or shift into their respective animal, representing the title of "strength" by being able to attack via their shifted self, be it Fang, talon, etc. The Laguz can take on a more human-like form but retain their ears, tails, wings, etc., giving their identity as Laguz away. The Laguz are highly respected for their brute strength as opposed to Beorc's wisdom and can not equipped anything other than their natural weapon.
Lagus are classified as being under three different tribes: the Beast Tribe, the Bird Tribe and the Dragon Tribe. Laguz were once imprisoned by Beorc and, thus, harbor a hatred for them, as it is vice versa. A Laguz Emancipation Act freed most of the Laguz and since then vanquished the insults given to Laguz. Despite the act and motivation for some to live in harmony with both Laguz and Beorc, some Laguz remain in slavery while others despise the Beorc. Throughout the history of the Tellius Series, Laguz slowly find a home for themselves and the hatred between Beorc and Laguz comes to an end.
