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 164-165, which features concept artwork of Horses, Pegasi, and Wyverns 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…

Horse & Wyvern
These are designs for Pegasi and Wyverns –both of which knights use to ride into battle upon. As they are often minor details in the games that one does not think much about, perhaps taking another look at them may reveal something new that one did not expect before.
 Horses for the mounted classes. The higher the class, the more ornaments are added onto them.  Pegasi that are used by the “Pegasus” based classes. They give off a more graceful impression when compared to the usual warhorse.  Illustrations of mounted characters. From left to right are: Makalov, Kieran, Oscar, and Astrid.  Wyverns that are used by the “Wyvern” based classes. They are also drawn in mounted postures.  Illustrations of the highest class of Wyvern-based class.
- The “wyverns” are referred to as “mounted dragons” in Japanese. But it makes it harder to differentiate between the Goldoan dragons as a result. (This is complicated even more by Ashnard’s case…)
