FE PoR: Stefan Character Profile (P. 108) 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 Stefan (P. 108)

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…

Personal Data
Species: Beorc
Class: Swordmaster
Affinity: Heaven
Origin: Begnion

Hobby: Fishing
Talent: Slashing attacks
Finds Important: Blades of love
Likes: Good weather
Dislikes: Bad weather
Apparent Age (Designed): 29

A branded who was born from the union of a Beorc and Laguz (lion). His brand mark is located on his left temple. He lives with fellow branded in a hidden village he founded within the Grann Desert (located within the northern part of the Begnion Empire). He’s a Swordmaster who wields the sacred sword known as the “Vague Katti.”
Due to his background, he has a negative opinion of both Beroc and Laguz –harboring a deep hatred for the Laguz especially. He appeared on a whim during the Mad King’s War, with no real plan or aim in mind. He witnessed Ike’s swordsmanship, feeling it was unpolished, and offered to train him as a second teacher. He treated it all as nothing more than an entertaining pastime for him.
His name comes from Soan, one of the blessed Three Heroes of the Goddess Ashera, as he is one of his direct descendants.

“Name’s Stefan. I’m trying, and failing, to be a lonely hermit in these parts…”
(Chapter 15: The Feral Frontier)

“I witnessed your blade work in the desert. It seems almost self-taught… but still has ways to go, only half complete… did you…lose your teacher?”
(Chapter 16: The Atonement)

Notes:

  • His profile confirms his lineage to Soan directly.
  • Oddly, in English his name Stefan makes this connection a bit less obvious, as his name is very different than his Japanese name which contains “Soan” in it.

ベオクとラグズ(獅子)の間に生まれた「印付き」。印の位置は左のこめかみ。ベグニオン帝国の北に位置するグラーヌ砂漠に隠れ里を開き、「印付き」同士で暮らした。聖剣「ヴァーグ・カティ」と操るソードマスターでもある。
その出自からベオク、ラグズ双方をこころよく思っておらず、特にラグズに対して激しい憎しみを抱いている。デイン=クリミア戦争に姿をあらわしたのは気まぐれであって、何か意図があったわけでない。アイクが剣の道半ばであることを見て取り、第二の師を買って出たのも、この時点では余興に過ぎない。
その名は、かつて女神アスタルテの加護を受けたといわれる「三雄」ソーンからとったもので、直系の子孫でもある。

私はソーンバルケ。人里はなれたこの地で隠者の真似事をしている。
(第15章 ***)

砂漠で、おまえの剣をみていた。独自の技を操るようだが、いまだ動きに迷いが残っている。・・・修行半ばで、師を失ったか?
(第16章 ベグニオンの**)
