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 154-155, which feature Sanaki, Zelgius, and Sephiran 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 Sanaki. Her conceited expression is something that had existed since her original designs.  A drawing that depicts a grown-up Sanaki. Were there plans for this more bewitching empress to appear at some point?  Three views of Zelgius. His expression, armor, cape, and small but notable accessories are all of what one should focus on.  Three views of Sephiran. The basis of his purple and white outfit was to express a sense of nobility. His sandal design matches Sanaki’s quite a bit.
- The unused design of a more grown-up Sanaki is something new, and I believe unknown before…
- The small scribbles regarding Sanaki’s patterns were very hard to read even with a magnifying glass, so they have been potentially more simplified in some parts, but carry the same meaning.
