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 158-159 which features concept artwork of Ashnard and the Black Knight. 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…

 Ashnard’s concept artworks. His extravagant velvet cape has the air of “supreme ruler” about it. You can get a glimpse of the finer details of his dragon-esque armor, especially his left shoulder pad.  An image of a slightly more aged Ashnard from the original version of the game. His cape was fully black, giving off a more stern impression.  Concept art of the Black Knight. The design art shows his unique armor and helmet which has an intense aura of intimidation.  Busts of Ashnard. He is drawn in a much more youthful way here, though his characteristic hairstyle still remains the same.
