This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn Memorial Book: Tellius Recollection (Vol 2).
This post features Reyson, a returning character from Path of Radiance.
His Path of Radiance profile can be seen here.

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of time…so if feeling generous, than please consider donating! It helps fund future projects. : )
Class: Bird Tribe – Heron Prince
Apparent Age: 22*
A bird-tribe heron laguz of the former Kingdom of Serenes. Third Prince of the royal family with the rare ability to sing Galdrar. He is Rafiel’s younger brother, and Leanne’s elder brother. He has close ties to Naesala, the king of Kilvas, as they were childhood friends.
He is one of the few survivors of the “Serenes Massacre,” which happened as a result of the assassination of Misaha, the 36th Empress of Begnion, in year 625 of the Begnion calendar –20 years before the Mad King’s War. King Tibarn of Phoenicis rescued Reyson and his father King Lorazieh from the slaughter.
After the end of the Mad King’s War, he went back to Phoenicis to live peacefully by his bedridden* father’s side. However, he finds himself fighting alongside Ike and the Greil Mercenaries once again for the sake of his people after Phoenicis joins the Laguz Alliance in a war against the Begnion Senate.
The average heron is delicate and quiet in nature, but Reyson is a notable exception to this rule with his rather expressive and belligerent personality. It is thought to be the influence of living around Tibarn for too long. His vigorous actions even surprise Ike at times.
- The literal translation is more like “continuously sleeping” rather than “bedridden,” which implies he’s actually in a coma. I wrote bedridden to remain consistent with localized lore, but an interesting note.
