FE10: Radiant Dawn Localization: Naming the Goddesses of “Order” & “Chaos” [JPN vs ENG]

Today’s post is a quick look at the word choice of the localization going for naming the goddesses after “order” and “chaos.” There are some nuances that may be fun to look at.

It’s really trivial, and mostly insignificant. But still pretty notable to when translating countless blocks of text from Tellius Recollection Volume 2.

Slight spoiler warning for those who have yet to play this game. Putting this here just in case I mention something near the end.

UPDATE: (Jan 19th): Interestingly the Fire Emblem Heroes website uses that same Elena portrait in super high quality:

Notes:

  • I do not recall seeing these two portraits used anywhere in the game or in the cut content. Apologies if they were already known.
  • The “112” simply refers to the page Ashera’s profile is found on. Elena lacks a number as she lacks a profile in this book.
  • They are actually from pg 40-41, made an error on the image above! They were found on the character relationship chart within the book, on page 41 and 42.
  • They lack full body portraits, and are not featured in the full portrait gallery within the book.
  • The above has been magnified 200% from the original scan for better visibility, but may be a slight loss in quality. Anyone interested in touching it up from the original can ask for them in the comments or email!
  • Ever since the update we got a high quality image above!

FE PoR: Tellius & Magic + Tome Designs (p. 177) Translations

This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Memorial Book: Tellius Recollection (Vol 1). 

This post is of page 177. It shows some tomes for the lower level magic (basic fire/wind/thunder/light) and also gives a bit of trivia regarding magic in the world of Tellius.

You can find every translation I’ve done on this book so far on the compilation post here!

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of free time, and I currently lack a source of income, so…

177tomesDescription:

In Tellius, magic is commonly used as a weapon in combat. There are four primary types of magic with destructive power: Fire, Wind, Thunder, and Light. There are also Staves, used for healing. It may seem strange that Water (Ice) and Dark are missing, but it is commonly accepted that it is to maintain hegemony among the people of the modern era. Water was one of the miraculous powers of the Creation Goddess Ashunera, and Dark was the evil power of the Dark God Yune. It is likely due to these associations that it is forbidden for the average person to study these types of magic. On a broader scale, the Heron Galdrar can be considered a type of magic too. Below are design materials on some of the different tomes.

Notes:

  • Those we are aware Yune is a goddess and not a god, I went with how they referred to her in FE9 (which was simply “the dark god.”
  • We see dark magic appear in FE10, so it was likely that these practitioners had been authorized to study it, or more likely, illegally studied the dark arts, considering the ones we see are primarily from Daein.
  • Light seems to be authorized as it would be using the accepted Goddess Ashera’s power, leaving the other two forbidden. Perhaps the Great Flood also left water out of the question?
  • Ice does appear in the form of “blizzard,” but likely due to the movement of clouds/weather rather than creating ice/water specifically.
