This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Memorial Book: Tellius Recollection (Vol 1).
This post is of page 144-145, which features Mia and Nephenee concept artworks with some commentary. The commentary is translated both on the page and here on this post.
You can find every translation I’ve done on this book so far on the compilation post here!
As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of time, and I am unemployed…so if you like what I did, then…

 Three views of the lively swordswoman Mia. Her clothing had not changed much since her initial design. It seemed like a perfect match from her from the start.  Full body sketches of after she class changes to a Swordmaster. She gains a new long coat in addition to her trademark orange color and hairband. Lucia does too, just in different colors.  Three views of Nephenee. You can see the details of what is hidden behind her hair in the back view picture. Also, her helmet shape was initially like Titania’s would have been. Probably because it was to be a standard design for the Crimean Army.  Three views after she class changes to Halberdier. She gains an orange scarf and larger shield that stick out a lot. It was to give her a bit of an unrefined impression even after becoming a higher class.
- They mention the hairband as a trademark for Mia, though she is actually lacking it in the Swordmaster design. However, it stays on her Radiant Dawn model…
