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 Zelgius (page 89) that was done/prioritized by request!
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…

Class: Begnion General
Finds Important: Unknown
Apparent Age (Designed): 26
Duke of Cador in the Empire of Begnion. Sephiran’s trusted friend.
He is a general with excellent swordsmanship and known as a hero throughout the Empire.
In the year 645, during the Mad King’s War, he led an army on behalf of the Begnion senate to join up the Crimean Liberation Army outside of Daein’s capital, Nevassa. Though Begnion had remained silent in regards to Daein’s strategies and expansion, they decided to eventually back Crimea. It was thanks to Prime Minister Sephiran’s incredible feat of passing Princess Elincia’s petition through the senate and getting them all to agree on it in one swoop (according to records, it only took half a day for the senate to agree to dispatch reinforcements to Crimea’s cause). However, as Daein’s main force had already moved to and occupied Crimea’s capital, the Begnion forces managed to occupy Nevassa without much of a fight. They moved to secure the surrounding areas and maintain order.
