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 146-147, which features concept artwork of Caineghis, Ranulf, Lethe, and Mordecai 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…

 A group of early design sketches of the great King Caineghis. Even without seeing the great transformation, one can assume from his expression that he is quite an ambitious individual.  Caineghis after transforming. The hard equipment around his waist is still reflected post-transformation as a way of making him more distinct.  Ranulf after transforming. His beautiful fur is the same light indigo color as the hair on his human form.  Three views of Lethe’s initial designs. Even after she transforms, she was designed to retain the ribbon and bell around her neck as a feature that makes her more distinguishable.  After transforming, Mordecai becomes a carnivorous beast that resembles a saber-toothed tiger. He retains the cloth wrapped around his arms from his human form as a trait he can be identified by.
