This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn Memorial Book: Tellius Recollection (Vol 2).
This post features Kurthnaga, 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: Black Dragon Prince
Apparent Age: 17*
The son of King Dheginsea. He is a Black Dragon and Crown Prince of Goldoa. He is Rajaion and Almedha’s younger brother. Though he is the youngest dragon across all the clans, he is over 100 years old –contrary to his outward appearance.
He, Laura, and Aimee were rescued by Micaiah and her crew from Gribe Prison, and temporarily traveled alongside her afterward.
He can be considered rather different than the other dragons, as he is vigorous and filled with boundless curiosity. He has great interest in the affairs of other countries, and while normally a reserved person, he can get a little excited, as seen when he visits the desert for the first time.
His sense of justice, love for his sister Almedha, and friendship with Micaiah leads him to intervene in the Laguz-Begnion War –meaning that not just he, but that the Kingdom of Goldoa itself had technically joined the conflict. It eventually leads to him confronting his father, Dheginsea.
Nasir and Gareth reveal the troubles and hardships to Kurthnaga that Dheginsea could not reveal to him while he was alive. Kurthnaga feels regret for having been so foolish, and vows to uphold his father’s wishes as the new Black Dragon King.
