This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn Memorial Book: Tellius Recollection (Vol 2).
This post features Dheginsea, a returning non-playable 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: Black Dragon King
Apparent Age: 50*
The founder and King of Goldoa. He is a living legend, who has continued to rule over Goldoa for its 635 years of history. He is the father of Rajaion, Almedha, and Kurthnaga. He is also one of the “Three Heroes” who defeated the Dark God Yune. He is a Black Dragon King and the strongest warrior among all dragons.
During the Mad King’s War, he was obstinate about not intervening in accordance to the covenant he formed with the Goddess Ashera.
“Humanity is not to make war for the next 1000 years as the Goddess sleeps. If the Goddess Ashera is awoken by chaos within the promised time, she will obliterate humanity entirely.” –so goes the covenant that the Three Heroes and Lehran forged with the Goddess Ashera back in the age of legends. Once the almighty dragons get involved in the conflict, it results in the world overflowing with chaos.
As the last living member of the Three Heroes, he feels responsible for having put the world on the brink of ruin. He feels deep regret toward the persecuted branded, over the loss of his son Rajaion, and the many other hardships that came about as a result of his nonintervention policy .
After a long bout of indecision, Dheginsea’s successor Kuthnaga overcomes his own hesitation and chooses to fight for the future. The true thoughts and feelings his father held but could never tell him would be revealed to Kurthnaga upon his ascension [to the throne].
