FE PoR: Petrine Character Profile (P. 99) Translation

This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Memorial Book: Tellius Recollection (Vol 1). 

This post is a character profile of Petrine (page 99).

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…

099Petrine

Translated text:

Species: Beorc
Class: General of Daein
Affinity: Fire
Origin: Daein

Hobby: Bullying the weak
Special Skill: Red-Hot Magic
Finds Important: Her own worth
Likes: Herself
Hates: Idiots who claim to fight for justice
Apparent Age (Designed): 33

She is one of the “Four Riders—“a title given to those who have a considerable amount of strength in the Daein Army. She wields the “Flame Lance,” a weapon capable of spitting out fire, granting her masterful command over powerful fire magic. She is a cool-headed female general who has come to be feared for her “Purging Flame.” She has great self-confidence and is quite cruel. She admires Ashnard’s “power is everything” ideology, and is absolutely loyal to him. She often puts her staff commander Ena and Kilvas informants to use to bolster the army. Despite her great military service, however, she strongly feels that ever since she encountered the Greil Mercenaries, it has been nothing but failure after failure for her. Things such as Elincia evading capture and the way Greil dealt with her (though she blames her own companions for this…) made her desperate enough to reluctantly call on Naesala for help. She was defeated at the Riven Bridge, dying in battle lost within her own thoughts.
At the Riven Bridge, Petrine sees right through the “Mark of a Spirit Charmer” on Soren’s forehead. She says to him: “You may have deceived the others, but it won’t work on me! Because we’re the same, I suppose.” In short, Petrine too is the child of the union between a Laguz (tiger) and Beorc, having been born as one of the “branded.” Tragic circumstances surrounding her brand are a deep-seated reason for her burning hatred of the Laguz, to the point of calling them “sub-humans.”

“Want to know what I hate the most in this world? You filthy sub-humans!”
(Chaper 23, The Great Bridge)

“Haa…your Majesty…pl…please forgive me…”
(Chaper 23, The Great Bridge)

Notes:

  • Her profile confirms her Branded heritage (being of a tiger) directly.
  • Her class seems to refer to her title/rank rather than character class.

Japanese text (original):

Personal Data
種族・: ベオク
クラス: デイン将軍
属性・: 炎
出身・: デイン

趣味・・・・:弱いものいじめ
特技・・・・:灼熱の魔法
大切なもの・:自分の価値
好きなもの・:自分自身
嫌いなもの・:正義を振りかざすバカ
外見設定年齢:33

デイン王国軍でも特に力を持つ4名の将軍に与えられる称号「四駿」の一角。炎を吐く槍「フレイムランス」を操り、強大な炎魔法を使いこなす。「煉獄の炎」として恐れられる冷徹な女将軍。性格は自信家で残忍。力がすべてであるとするアシュナードの思想に心酔、絶対の忠誠を捧げている。参謀イナ、諜報にキルヴァス勢を利用することが多い。数々の軍功を立ててきたものの、グレイル傭兵団と対峙して以降裏目ばかりを踏んでしまった感が強い。エリンシアを取り逃がし、グレイルにはあしらわれ(これは相手が悪かったといえるが・・・・・・)、結果的にではあるがネサラの離反まで招いてしまう。最期はオルリベス大橋で迎撃にも敗れ、先意の中戦死した。
このオルリベス大橋でセネリオを見たプラハは、その額の印を魔道士の「精霊の護符」ではないと看破。「他の奴らの目は誤魔化せても、あたしには通用しないね。なんたって“お仲間”なんだから」ともらす。つまり、プラハもまたラグズ(虎)とベオクとの間に生まれた「印付き」なのであった。印の位置は右の胸。ラグズを“半獣”と呼び、激しい憎悪を燃やした影には、そのような哀しい事情があったのだ。

あたしがこの世で一番嫌いなものを教えてやろうか?おまえら獣の半獣さ!
(23章、オルベリス代橋)

へ・・・陛下・・・お許しを・・・どうか、お許しを・・・
(23章、オルベリス代橋)

  1. This begs the question, why did Petrine choose the Flame Lance? Tiger laguz are not known for strong magic stats. Then again, maybe she chose it to kill beast laguz, so maybe she knew.

    • I feel like she was going just for revenge, burning the beast laguz up. It sounds like fire is her hobby too, even if its not really part of her class/character.
