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 Princess
Apparent Age: 18*
A bird-tribe heron laguz of the former Kingdom of Serenes. Fourth Princess of the royal family with the rare ability to sing Galdrar. Her eldest brother is Rafiel, with Reyson as her second eldest brother. She has close ties to Naesala, the king of Kilvas, as they were childhood friends.
She was thought to have perished in the “Serenes Massacre.” However, she was actually saved by her elder sisters who had put her into a deep sleep instead. 20 years later, in Begnion year 645, she awoke from her slumber. She wandered the woods and eventually encountered Ike and his crew.
After the Mad King’s War, she lived in the care of Castle Gallia. However, her eldest brother Rafiel brought word of the truth behind the “Serenes Massacre” which caused the laguz and beorc to edge closer to war. In order to help put a stop to the conflict, she and Nealuchi traveled to Castle Crimea together.
When she first awoke, she could only speak the Ancient Language. But under Nealuchi’s guidance, she has steadily been learning the Tellius Language. She gradually became able to speak it in broken sentences. There is a scene where she consoles a stressed Elincia by expressing herself with great difficulty in the Tellius Language.
She shows a more stubborn side to herself that refuses to yield when she puts her mind to something –whether it was the influence of her elder brother Reyson or already within her own nature is unknown. She surprised Lucia by declaring that she wanted to accompany her to Felirae to find evidence that Ludveck was behind the rebellion.
As she had slept for 20 years, both her appearance and outlook has remained youthful and innocent. She can feel the secret burden Naesala carries due with the “Blood Contract,” and aims to soothe him from his pain.
