*** Julia, [[spoiler:Deirdre and Arvis]]'s daughter, is borderline. Much like Claud, she starts out with the capability to use offensive magic, but no offensive magic available for her to use. She's a bit better than her mother at holding her own in combat once she gets an offensive spellbook, but this can be attributed in large part to a spell that also heals ''herself'' upon a successful hit. And she's got the personality--like most, a [[GenerationXerox carbon copy of her mother]].
*** Nanna is another one whose qualifications are borderline, and perhaps in some ways dependent on her heritage.[[note]] She's a Troubador, which means [[MagicKnight Sword and Staff]], but due to her mother Raquesis's bloodline she's at the very least guaranteed to get a decent Strength growth, which could be very good with the right father. Her mother ''doesn't'' give Pursuit, however, so with a father that fails to remedy this in favor of focusing on other aspects, she could qualify, especially with her Charisma ability which causes her mere ''presence'' to give a 10% boost to accuracy and avoid to all units within a three-tile radius. (In particular, if Lex is her father, his ridiculous Defense and HP growths combined with the Elite ability for quicker leveling up and lack of Pursuit turns her into a CombatMedic, able to deal decent damage if needed but more importantly able to ''take hits'' and stay near the front lines, healing and buffing the main fighters with Charisma.)[[/note]] Personality definitely fits since she's gentle and calm but not exactly willowy.
*** Corple, son of the dancer Sylvia, is a male example. Shows up late in the game at a low level and without any offensive abilities, but strong healing abilities (his mother Sylvia also has the Blaggi bloodline, so he'll have a bonus to staff level). If Claud is his father, he'll be probably the best healer in the game.
*** Mana and Sharlow, the [[{{Expy}} replacement characters]] for Lana and Corple respectively, also qualify.

** An interesting pair of inversions are Naga the Serpent and Amelia Wil Tesla Saillune. Both of them are exceptionally gifted in white magic (it [[spoiler: runs in the family]]) and are both very competent healers, yet Naga smacks of [[BlackMagicianGirl black magician girl]] due to her personality and outfit, and Amelia is very much a tomboy [[ActionGirl action girl]].

While not a requirement, she is frequently the LoveInterest of TheHero, and will generally overlap with traditionally feminine fantasy archetypes such as the RebelliousPrincess or MysticalWaif. It's not uncommon for them to be [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princesses]] (rebellious or not), [[ActualPacifist pacifists]], or [[GoodShepherd clergy]]. Characters of this archetype are frequently paired with a BlackMage, usually a BlackMagicianGirl or LadyOfBlackMagic, as a {{Foil}}.

** ''VideoGame/StarOceanIntegrityAndFaithlessness'' has Miki Sauvester. She is the party's strongest healer, but has [[TheRedMage nearly the same amount of offensive spells]] as the LadyOfBlackMagic, just different elements. Miki's late mother is also said to have been one; Miki learned how to heal to feel closer to her, since she [[ParentalAbandonment can't really remember her parents otherwise]].



* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has Mia, who plays this trope as straight as possible. Girl with long hair, wears feminine clothing? Check. Heals people, uses a staff? Double check. Has as her main (if not only) personality trait being caring and compassionate? Jackpot.

* '''TheChick:''' The White Magician Girl is classically female and always feminine. {{Tomboy}}s, {{Sweet Polly Oliver}}s, and {{Bifauxnen}} need not apply. Their femininity will usually be emphasized in her character design with the use of long hair and overtly feminine clothing, such as dresses or robes. Male analogs, which are rare, will mimic the same gentle appearance, sometimes to the extent of wearing long robes and long hair (or perhaps a suitably pious hat).
