[[caption-width-right:200:ActualPacifist, [[HealingHands healer]], LoveInterest, with a SimpleStaff.]]

The White Magician Girl is a StockCharacter appearing in {{Fantasy}} Literature and {{Role Playing Game}}s, acting as the party's resident healer, nurturer and [[WomenAreWiser source of feminine wisdom]]. While the other party members are slaughtering opponents, the White Magician Girl is taking care of their wounds with gentleness and compassion, and congratulating them after the battle with her brilliant smile. She is often included as a female lead because GuysSmashGirlsShoot or as a {{Foil}} to a [[AcceptableFeminineGoalsAndTraits less traditionally feminine]] ActionGirl. She's basically the WhiteMage infused with IncorruptiblePurePureness.

There are three essential elements of the White Magician Girl:
* '''TheChick:''' The White Magician Girl is classically female and always feminine. {{Tomboy}}s, {{Sweet Polly Oliver}}s, and {{Bifauxnen}} need not apply (though a TomboyWithAGirlyStreak '''may''' be spotted once in a while). 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).
* '''Takes a [[CombatAndSupport support role]] in combat:''' A White Magician Girl's primary role in combat is performing [[TheMedic healing]] and/or [[StatusBuff support]] abilities, usually through WhiteMagic. As a result, they usually have relatively poor physical combat skills. Although classic for the look, their WeaponOfChoice is not always a SimpleStaff or MagicStaff; blunt objects like [[CarryABigStick maces, scepters]], or [[DropTheHammer hammers]] are common, as are [[GuysSmashGirlsShoot ranged weapons]], such as bows. In the ''very'' rare cases where she uses a bladed weapon, it's usually a [[KnifeNut knife]] or [[RoyalRapier rapier]] (latter is common if she's also a [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]]) at ''largest''. ImprobableWeaponUser White Magician Girls are not unheard of, especially heart-shaped weapons. It's also not unknown for them to have [[TheRedMage some offensive magical capabilities]] as well, though not to the extent of a BlackMagicianGirl or LadyOfBlackMagic. One common exception is when battling the undead or demons, in which case she may possess some [[HolyBurnsEvil frighteningly powerful offensive spells that work]] [[ReviveKillsZombie only on those beings.]] In these cases, if she is [[GoodShepherd some manner of priestess]], then you can count on her wielding a HolyHandGrenade.
* '''Caring and compassionate:''' White Magician Girls have nurturing, motherly tendencies that tie-in with their feminine appearance and white magic. Very often they act as TheChick, TheHeart, or TeamMom of their party. Common personality types include being ThePollyanna, TheIngenue, ProperLady, YamatoNadeshiko, or an AllLovingHero. More rarely, they may be a PluckyGirl. White Magician Girls are almost never a straight GenkiGirl, {{Tomboy}}, or {{Tsundere}} type, although mild tendencies are not disqualifiers.

While not a requirement, she is frequently the LoveInterest of TheHero, which typically places her as half of a SwordAndSorcerer combination, 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}}.

See also TheMedic, WhiteMage, TheHeart, and TheChick. This trope is ''almost'' the inverse of the BlackMagicianGirl.



[[folder: {{Anime}}]]
* ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'': Leylia appears like this trope initially, being a kind healer cleric and all, in but ''Chronicles of the Heroic Knight'' she shows she's not above using bladed weapons with brutal efficiency when the situation calls for it.
* ''Anime/RuneSoldierLouie'': As a Mylee priestess, [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold Melissa]] knows ''some'' [[HolyHandGrenade offensive spells]], but her main function is to provide support for [[AmazonianBeauty Jeanie]] and [[TheSneakyGuy Merrill]] with [[BarrierWarrior defensive spells]] and healing magic. Once Louie joins them, he makes it a point to keep Melissa covered, since [[BecauseDestinySaysSo he's her appointed champion]]... though [[RunningGag it's against her will.]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'':
** Sylphiel Nels Lahda is extremely gifted at healing and protection magic compared to other users in the series, is kind and caring, and has a huge crush on the swordsman Gourry.
** 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]].
* In ''Manga/LegendOfHeavenlySphereShurato'', Lakshu is this through and through since she's not a fighter, but being a priestess of Vishnu [[spoiler:(and eventually her successor, but nobody know that)]] allows her to use her spiritual energy (''sohma'') to heal people.

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* Chana of the mine-robbers in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', noted explicitly as the only human among them who counseled against attacking Paul. The “PC Dialogue” behind this particular incident (and available directly from the author if you want it) indicates that Chana is the party's cleric and has that classic support role. Mildly ironic in that she's black.

[[folder: Film - Live Action]]
* ''Film/{{Mythica}}:'' Teela, the priestess. Support character? Check. Healing magic? Check. Carries a staff? Check.

* Goldmoon, from the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' series, is a prototypical example of this, the bearer of a powerful magical staff who sought to inspire the people to a return to faith in the gods. She is the High Priestess of her people. Goldmoon is a nurturing being and an encouraging and persuasive speaker. Her attire, however, is atypical, as she is a ''barbarian'' noble and cleric.
%%% "is an early example" is not context.
%%%%%%%* ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'': Lúthien .

* The Princess of Moonbrooke in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestII'' is the UrExample, debuting all the way back in '87. While she may have set a (possibly) unfortunate trend for RPG females, she's still a vast improvement over the {{Distressed Damsel}}s that were so common at the time.
** Ironically enough, she's more of a RedMage than her successors since she learns the strongest attack spells in the game.
* ''VideoGame/WildArms'': Yulie from ''VideoGame/WildArms4'', who also hits the MysticalWaif trope.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** Rosa from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' was almost a prototype for the breed, except her non-magical archery was often a match for some melee characters. She could wield a staff as well, but her best weapons were bows and arrows.
*** Porom from the same game also counts. She is not as brash as her Brother, and tends to actually keep him in line. And Porom along with her Brother do temporarily sacrifice themselves to save the rest of the party. Rydia would also count except that she lost the ability to cast White Magic when she was taken to the Land of Summons.
** Aerith from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is probably [[TropeCodifier one of the more famous examples]] of this trope.
** Garnet/Dagger from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' uses magical "rackets" as well as staves. She fit this trope to a T until she starts getting her summons back, at which point she shifts to a more offensive-oriented character. Interestingly, this change is also marked by [[ExpositoryHairstyleChange her cutting her long hair]].
*** Despite her superior WhiteMagic, Eiko is absolutely ''not'' a White Magician Girl. She's aggressive, tomboyish, and her flirting as cheesy and annoying as Zidane's.[[note]] In fact, it convinced Zidane to go easier on Dagger in the future.[[/note]]
** Yuna in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is the mystical, kind hearted, white mage [[spoiler:willing to die for temporary peace.]] Averted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' where Yuna has as much access as Rikku and Paine to all manner of death-dealing hardware and has loosened up since she no longer has her summoner duty but she's still kind hearted.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' Alma Beoulve and Princess Ovelia are both exclusively {{White Mage}}s, much more feminine and passive than the other {{Action Girl}}s in the game, and are both very much {{The Chick}}.
** All these may be preceded by the White Mage of the original ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Final Fantasy]]'', an early example of the character design, to the [[FeaturelessProtagonist extent any gender can be determined]]. For a lot of young gamers in 1987, when ''Final Fantasy'' was released, the original White Mage party member appears to be gender neutral with a simple white and red theme and a hood drawn up, covering most of the face. Ambiguous gender, for a lot of players [[MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial defaults to male.]] When your party "matures" and upgrades to [[PrestigeClass prestige classes]] the White Mage's hood comes down, giving new perspective of the White Wizard with [[http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQWuDvhvG-tqr_no_Km-EMT3VKqWGiSKhmE9jVJ_3-6TWkof7yS5nxSuw cascading red hair, thick eyebrows, and strong, lantern jaw.]] This was taken by many to be TheReveal that the White Mage was a woman, much like recent contemporary ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'s'' Samus Aran.
*** And although subject to FlipFlopOfGod for a while, as of the PSP release, it's permantly decided to be a girl and it shows.
* ''Franchise/BreathOfFire'' often subverts the trope. Only the first and fourth games really play the trope straight with Nina, and even then ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' gave her some offensive magic to let her qualify more as TheRedMage.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'':
** In several of the games, [[HealerSignsOnEarly one of the first allies will be a Cleric]] (on-foot female WhiteMage) or a Priest (on-foot male WhiteMage), and some rounds later the player will be able to recruit a Troubadour (mounted WhiteMage), and sometimes a Valkyrie (mounted RedMage or mounted MagicKnight), a Sage (basically the same, but on foot and with either gender), or a Bishop (Light magic user ''and'' healer that promotes from Clerics, Priests or the all-male Monks, which use offensive magic instead of staves).
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar Genealogy of the Holy War]]'':
*** Edain, like most of the female characters, has a bit of PluckyGirl in her, but she gets bonus femininity points for being the latter half of a TomboyAndGirlyGirl pair with her [[SeparatedAtBirth long-lost]] [[PolarOppositeTwins twin sister]] Briggid, a Sniper who was [[RaisedByNatives adopted by a pirate chieftain]] [[PirateGirl and now serves as their leader]].
*** Deirdre, the wife of protagonist Sigurd, might also qualify. She has [[LightEmUp light magic]] capabilities as well, but her low stats in [[GlassCannon everything other than magic]] and heavy tome make her unfit to get in any serious combat, and one of her first jobs upon arrival is to use her [[AntiMagic Silence staff to neutralize a VERY dangerous enemy mage]]. She's also TheIngenue and an AllLovingHero (though ironically, she also has the bloodline of the ''anti''-messiah, making her integral to the villains' plans).
*** Also in the first generation, the bishop Claud is a male example. Though he does have combat capabilities upon arrival as he is already a promoted High Priest, he doesn't have any offensive magic upon his arrival whereas he ''does'' have some of the most powerful healing staves, and can only use the most basic spells while being the only one who can use the most powerful staff.
*** In the second generation, Edain's daughter Lana is the primary one, filling the same role as her mother, although depending on who her father is she has the potential to become more of a RedMage after promotion.
*** 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, plus Lana will hand her a healing staff very soon. 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.
*** Coipre, son of the dancer Silvia, 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 Silvia also has the Blaggi bloodline, so he'll have a bonus to staff level). If the aforementioned Claud is his father, he has a good chance to become the best healer in the whole game.
*** Muirne and Charlot, the [[{{Expy}} replacement characters]] for Lana and Coipre respectively, also qualify.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776:''
*** Safy is possibly the straightest example of all.
*** Nanna is probably a straighter example here than she is in ''Genealogy of the Holy War'', though she still has the ability to use swords.
*** Sara is another one who borders on RedMage territory, but her Staff rank is much higher than her rank in any offensive magic type and she's the only unit capable of using the [[TakenForGranite Stone]]-curing Kia Staff.
*** The priest Sleuf is another male example, and does his best to emulate his mentor Claud. [[spoiler: And is implied to have Claud's soul as his SpiritAdvisor.]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'':
*** Ellen (Cleric) is the straightest example. Clarine plays the role from a gameplay standpoint (Troubador) but lacks the personality (''highly'' {{Tsundere}}, kind of a RichBitch), and Saul (Priest) could be a male example if not for his HandsomeLech tendencies.
*** Elphin the bard could be considered a male example. His role is strictly support (in gameplay, anyway; he also has plot relevance [[spoiler:as he's actually Prince Mildain of Etruria]]), and he's got the serene and serious personality that his female counterpart Lalum (GenkiGirl Dancer) lacks.
*** Cecilia may also qualify. She shows up later in the game and as such is already capable of combat as well (Valkyrie), but she's got the personality and is probably best used for support.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'':
*** Priscilla, a Troubadour, is a sweet, kind-hearted girl. Her abilities are strictly support until she promotes to a Valkyrie, at which point she moves into RedMage territory.
*** Ninian and Nils, the latter of which is a RareMaleExample, are interesting examples. They both definitely fit the personality type and neither has any combat skills at all. Their abilities squeeze in under WhiteMage for being purely support related, either giving a unit a second turn or providing a status buff, rather than any heals. They get extra points for being a pair of [[MysticalWaif Mystical Waifs]]. Ninian is even one of [[TheHero The Hero's]] three prospect {{Love Interest}}s.
*** Lucius (Monk), once he is promoted from his Monk class to Bishop. He is a caring, compassionate, will look out for people he loves, and is {{Bishonen}} (so much that a lot of members of your party will mistake him for a girl). He is a powerful light magic user, but [[GlassCannon his defense is so abysmal]] that he should be kept away from the front lines at all cost. Once he is promoted, he becomes a very useful healer and staff-user.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'':
*** Natasha is a Cleric who joins up early in the game. Lacks any offensive magic at first, is a DefectorFromDecadence who hails from the country whose leadership is the antagonists, and quickly manages to win a powerful hired sword to switch sides via words only.
*** The Troubladour L'Arachel is a little more {{Tsundere}} than typical but still fits nicely into the trope. She may be the only example to ever be a LargeHam.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' and ''Videogame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn:''
*** Rhys is a RareMaleExample, being a gentle healer without any attacks. For the "Healer" part, at least until he gets promoted.
*** Laura is a shy, sweet girl healer.
*** Mist starts as one, but by the second game she's more of TheRedMage or a CombatMedic.
** ''Videogame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight'' and ''Videogame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'':
*** Due to the nature of the Reclassing system, any female can become an example however, Lena originally defined the archetype for the series. Princess Maria joins up later and serves a similar role.
*** Marth's sister, Elice, is an older and wiser version within ths series.
*** Lena's apprentice Marisha and FallenPrincess Yuliya show up in the sequel.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'':
*** Lissa and Maribelle are two. Note, though, the former can promote to War Cleric and also wield axes and hammers. They also deviate from the usual personality type of {{White Magician Girl}}s, with Lissa being a somewhat [[TomboyPrincess tomboyish]] GenkiGirl, and Maribelle being an epic Type A {{Tsundere}}.
*** [[spoiler:Maribelle's KidFromTheFuture]] Brady is a RareMaleExample. He's got a [[FaceOfAThug rather thuggish face]] and huge self-esteem problems, but is a very efficient healer and a really sweet dude.
*** Not to forget pious and kind-hearted Libra, who's a War Monk (wields staves and, of all the things, axes). He's also takes [[DudeLooksLikeALady the traditional femininity of this type of character]] to the extent that some of the Shepherds mistake him for a War Cleric.
*** Sumia is a gentle Pegasus Knight who can be reclassed into a Cleric and become this.
*** If Noire [[spoiler:inherits the Cleric class from a dude that she can be fathered with (like the aforementioned Libra or a Male Avatar)]], she can become this as well.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates:''
*** Hoshido and Nohr each have one in form of the youngest princess in the royal family. Sakura is a straighter example while Elise is more of a GenkiGirl, but they both start out as only healers until they promote or reclass.
*** RareMaleExample could have been be Azama, if it weren't for his rather sharp tongue and criticism towards others.
*** [[spoiler:Prince Leo's son]] Forrest would be a better example, due to his kind, sympathetic personality and effeminate appearance.
*** [[spoiler:The aforementioned Azama's daughter]] Mitama fits in skills-wise, but is more sharp-tongued than other examples.
*** If a soft-spoken and kind character of either gender can be reclassed into a Shrine Maiden/Monk/Troubadour/Onmyouji [[spoiler: whether via marriage, friendship, paternal/maternal inheritance (second generation) or secondary class]], s/he'll probably fit here, like [[spoiler: a Siegbert (son of Prince Xander) who gets access to either Troubadour (via friendly supports with Forrest) or Monk/Great Master (via being mothered by Sakura or marrying Mitama).]]
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' and its 3DS remake have examples on both routes:
*** Silque is the first healer to appear in Alm's route and she fits in quite well with her kind and plucky personality. However, she focuses less on healing spells and more on support magic like [[TelePortation Warp]] and [[SummonMagic Invoke]].
*** Genny, the first healer in Celica's route, is shy and gentle and a bit insecure.
*** Tatiana, the Saint recruited later in Alm's route, is a bit clumsier than average but fits in perfectly otherwise, plus she has exclusive access to Fortify aka the most powerful healing spell in the game.
*** ''Echoes'' offers a subversion in Faye, who ''can'' become a Cleric and will perform well as such (in fact, she has [[ExtraTurn an unique spell]] and learns another much earlier than the other Clerics), but has other possible reclass options. In fact, her ''FE Cipher'' cards depict her either as a [[ActionGirl a Pegasus Knight]] or as [[LadyOfBlackMagic a Priestess]].
* Carlie of ''VideoGame/SeikenDensetsu3''. She has the most healing of the six main characters, and uses a mace as her weapon.
* ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}''
** LoveFreak Flonne from [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness the first game]], and ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice''.
** After ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'', Creator/NipponIchi games have any generic Healer unit. While the mentor system can be used to get healing magic from one person to another, the Healers are all female, and can wield staves (bows are useful too), and are always dressed in elegant dresses with long hair. They believe that healing their wounded comrades is a necessity and thus they are committed to developing their skills and school of magic. In contrast, the male healers believe that healing the injured in the battlefield is a sin and wear barbed robes as a form of atonement.
* Marle from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', who is also a RebelliousPrincess. She's a little more of a tomboy than normal, but she makes up for it by being extra [[TheHeart compassionate]]. She's also [[TheHero Crono's]] LoveInterest, for bonus points.
* Among its [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters massive cast of playable characters]], ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has [[ProperLady Lady Riddel]], whose techs are all dedicated to support roles like healing or buffing. There's a few other characters that could be played similarly, like [[GirlNextDoor Leena]] or [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Irenes]].
* ''VideoGame/StarOcean'':
** ''VideoGame/StarOcean1'' has Millie Chliette, although she has {{tsundere}} tendencies.
** ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'' has Rena Lanford. Her primary combat role is healing and support, but she is a somewhat effective fist fighter and is a borderline RedMage.
** ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' has Sophia Esteed. Feminine, skilled at domestic tasks and somewhat naive, she is the most powerful healer. [[RedMage She does, however, have a wide array of offensive spells too.]]
** ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'' has Serah Jerand, who, if [[CloudCuckoolander a bit airheaded]], is the best healer in the game.
** ''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]].
* Yaobikuni from ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', who is a YamatoNadeshiko LadyOfWar, is the master of buffs and has PsychicPowers. At least she has two attack skills, unlike poor [[WhiteMage Seimei]] who only has one.
** While we're at it, Seimei himself. He is very kind and level-headed, if not [[TheStoic stoic]] and specializes in buffs, debuffs and defense. Oh, and he's quite the [[{{Bishonen}} handsome]] [[LongHairedPrettyBoy man]].
* Princess Peach in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', though she wields [[ParasolOfPain umbrellas]], [[FryingPanOfDoom frying pans]], [[PaperFanOfDoom fans]], and [[ArmorPiercingSlap slapping gloves]].
* [=MOMO=] from ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'', who starts with a rod and in later games gets upgraded to an ether bow. Ultimately subverted in Episode III, where one of her two development paths turns her into an effective [[BreakMeter break attacker]].
* Elena of ''VideoGame/GrandiaII'' is this. She wields a staff, does little in direct combat, has holy-themed magical powers, and is used mostly for healing spells. In fact, true to form, [[spoiler:she shares a body with a [[DarkMagicalGirl Dark Magical Girl]] in the form of the Wings of Valmar.]]
* Alice Elliot in the first ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' game. She is gentle and demure, softening [[AntiHero Yuri's]] harsher side. In combat, she uses a book and is the primary healer. She is also an exorcist to emphasize her holy powers.
* Mint in ''VideoGame/{{Tales of Phantasia}}'' is the page picture, and the purest example in the ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'', having no damaging spells or artes whatsoever (The healers in the other games all fall under CombatMedic). Late in the game, her fairly potent arsenal of heals, cures, stunning hammers and status enhancers is capped off by the power to temporarily ''stop time''. Given, it [[UselessUsefulSpell doesn't work on bosses]], but it's [[RuleOfFun freaking]] [[RuleOfCool sweet]] [[AwesomeButImpractical to have around]].
* Shana from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'', who wields a bow and is also a MysteriousWaif. Unlike the other playable characters, her dragoon form has a heavy emphasis on healing magic. Miranda later gains the same skillset and weapon, but her personality is too assertive to quite fit.
* Fall-From-Grace in ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' has the femininity, the nurturing personality and is the only healer found in the game; she only has about one offensive spell and is firmly a support character.
* Cosette of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII'' fits the personality to a T, and in her primary roles has only healing and support abilities. You can unlock an offensive class for her, but this is [[GameplayAndStorySegregation non-canon in the story]].
* Fiona from ''{{Nostalgia}}'' is a BarrierMaiden version of this. With some holy magic mixed in with her predominantly healing and support skills, she often gets paired off with Eddie while [[PairTheSpares Pad and Melody]] have a [[BelligerentSexualTension more turbulent relationship]].
* Shiho from ''VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile'' is the closest to fit the archetype. When she joins your party, she knows a large variety of healing and defensive magic, but no attack spells.
* Rosea in ''VideoGame/ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume'' seems at first like a ''very'' generic example of the type, contrasted with the sadomasochistic fire mage Lieselotte. However, each of them blames the other for the murder that got them both exiled. [[spoiler:In the neutral path, Lieselotte kills Rosea, speaking afterwards of how it was a fitting punishment for a murderer and a hypocrite. In the evil path, Rosea kills Lieselotte, sacrificing her innocence and becoming a fitting companion for your VillainProtagonist. In the good path, they both kill each other--and only in that path do you find out that neither of them committed the original murder!]]
* Wynne from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is a rare ''elderly'' example of this archetype, being around ''sixty'' when she first meets the Warden. Once she joins the group she quickly falls into the role of the resident Healer, frequently is shown to offer kind words of wisdom to various characters and becomes the unofficial TeamMom of the group. Aside from [[BlackMagicianGirl Morrigan]], its clear that ''no-one'' has a bad thing to say about her. The other healing mages you encounter throughout the series are all men, but do not share Wynne's nurturing, maternal nature.
* ''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'' has Eruru, who in the game serves as a healer during battles and in the anime adaptation still goes to battles and... apparently just watches without ever getting attacked really.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'': Kloe's orbment configuration is one line of mostly blue, meaning a high magic pool with healing and support skills. She also wields a rapier. Even her S-Crafts often involve healing.
* ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar'' has Jessica de Alkirk, a priestess who specializes in healing magic. However, she's more hot-headed than most examples, making her something of a proto-MamaBear and her WeaponOfChoice is a mace.
* ''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. [[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Her son]] inherited all of these points.
* The ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' games has a few odd examples.
** Viconia [=DeVir=] is a [[InvertedTrope inverted]] example as she's the best cleric in the game (especially in the sequel where she's the only pure cleric and her Wisdom is maxed out and has excellent Charisma on top of it), but she's [[TokenEvilTeammate evil aligned]] and a massive [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]].
** Another example is Aerie. while technically a RedMage since she's a Mage/Cleric hybrid, her behaviour screams of this trope.
* Amy Sage of ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarII'' is soft-spoken and the best healer by far. Thea, Kara, Laya and Gwyn from ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIII'' might also count, although they equip [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang slicers]] and bows instead of traditional staves.
* While Mercy of ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}'' uses nanomachines rather than magic, she otherwise fits this trope, being a healer wearing white angelic armor, wielding a staff and is the most feminine of the female cast.
* Mipha from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. Her magical ability, Mipha's Grace, functions much like carrying a fairy, reviving Link if he runs out of hearts while also giving him a few extra yellow hearts. In the backstory, she used her powers to heal Link of lesser injuries, and she also had a crush on him.
* The Mirage Casters in ''VideoGame/ValthirianArc1'' fit this trope quite well, as a class of female healers who seem to be incredibly sweet and kind (though their uniformly black hair does break the aesthetic a bit). [[VideoGame/ValthirianArc2 The second game]] plays with this trope by replacing Mirage Casters with Medicae, who can be of any gender and temperament.
* Alarielle the Everqueen in TotalWarWarhammer2. A benevolent and loving queen mother to the Elven race, complete with FertileFeet, LightIsGood magic fueled by ThePowerOfLove, and a GoodHurtsEvil effect on her Dark Elf rivals. Finally, her FriendToAllLivingThings nature means she's the first Everqueen to lead armies into battle to defend all creation from the forces of Chaos.
* ''VideoGame/OctopathTraveler'' has Ophilia Clement, the [[WhiteMage Cleric]]. Gentle, pious and nurturing, her base class can only wield staves as it focuses on healing and support with a few LightEmUp spells.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* White Mage in ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', although her patience and nurturing tendencies are strained to the breaking point by Black Mage's antics.
* Lumi from ''{{Webcomic/Adventurers}}'' parodies the typical relationship of WhiteMagicianGirl and Hero. However, she was also the last party member to be introduced, so she got far less screen time than most.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Unithien Greyrain/Earthaven of ''TheGamersAlliance'' is a sweet and caring priestess of [[GodOfGood Cardia]] who specializes in healing spells and only directly fights when it's absolutely necessary- that is, until she [[CynicismCatalyst goes off the deep end]] courtesy of a combination of decades-spanning trauma, [[SirensAreMermaids Vellamo's]] manipulation, and getting DrunkOnTheDarkSide off of her increasing arcane powers. After this, she becomes a much darker character on top of becoming more willing to use her magic to hurt and kill, moving away from this trope in both personality and combat role.
* Codex, in the [[ShowWithinTheShow Game Within The Show]] of ''WebVideo/TheGuild''. She's very much the TeamMom and TheHeart of the group, both on- and offline.
