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 Bastian (P. 62)
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…

The influential Count Fayre of Crimea. Trusted retainer to Prince Renning. He is a civil official who works for the prince.
He disguised himself as a street performer during Daein’s occupation. Both his appearance and roundabout way of talking are fitting for a poet, and makes him great at confusing people. From his odd mannerisms, many are quick to assume he has a frivolous personality, however, behind those lie a genius tactician. His friendship with the capable assassin Volke is proof of him having access to a unique information network- -considering even Volke said that Bastian is “well suited to skulking behind the scenes.”
Though he swears allegiance to Elincia as a Crimean retainer, his gaze and focus are more often drawn to Lucia.
