FE PoR: Giffca Character Profile (P. 69) 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 Giffca (page 69). The notes were translated by AstroknighticalFeats (of serenesforest.net) and the profile data by me.

You can find every translation I’ve done on this book so far on the compilation post here!

Original scans/Japanese are not posted, but are available by request.

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…

Please donate! It helps fund future projects!

Enjoy!

Accompanying Caineghis since his youth, Giffca is a jet black lion who acts as the king’s advisor. Because of his similar shape to King Caineghis and his dark appearance, he’s earned the name “The King’s Shadow” during his time as the king’s personal envoy. To that end, he is nearly equal to Caineghis in every way.

Initially, the king sent Ranulf to monitor the progress of Ike and company; but being that Caineghis could not publicly mobilize, Giffca was sent as his substitute to participate in the Crimean Liberation effort.

-(AstroknighticalFeats)

Notes:

  • Personal Envoy: The term here is 影武者 (Kagemusha), lit. “Doppelgänger”, but the term doesn’t really suit connotatively for someone who does it as a profession, whereas “personal envoy” gets the idea across that he subs in for Caineghis when he can’t go somewhere, yet still fits the connotation that it’s his job.-(AstroknighticalFeats)
