Dromarch (Japanese: ビャッコ, Byakko) is a Special Legendary Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. He has the power to heal allies while attacking when bonded to his Driver named Nia. Dromarch uses the water element, wields a Twin Rings, and acts as a Healer in battle. He takes on the appearance of a tiger. He refers to Nia as "Lady" (お嬢様, Ojōsama), as if he were a butler. With Nia in the lead riding Dromarch, the player can control him to move around the field faster.

Etymology

His Japanese name Byakko, known as "Bai Hu" (白虎) in Chinese, is the White Tiger in the Chinese constellations. It is one of the four symbols and represents the west and the autumn season. His English name may refer to Dormarch, a similar white beast from Welsh mythology that represents hunters, although it is more typically portrayed as a hound.
