Goldoa will not move.
— Dheginsea, in a flashback

Dheginsea, also known as Deghinsea in Path of Radiance and PAL regions of Radiant Dawn, is the king of Goldoa, land of the dragon laguz. He is one of Ashera's Three Heroes who deafeated the Dark God Yune. He has three children: Almedha, Rajaion, and Kurthnaga. He has two grandchildren: Soren and another from Rajaion. He wishes to live in peace and tries to prevent the other laguz tribes from fighting.

In Radiant Dawn, he sides with Ashera after her judgement.

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance


Dheginsea's only formal appearance in the events of this story is in a cutscene, which takes place shortly after the Greil Mercenaries arrive in Begnion. In the cutscene, he arranges a meeting between all of the laguz kings, in order to discuss the ongoing conflict spurred by Mad King Ashnard. There, he advises the other kings on how to proceed, stressing that they keep in mind Lehran's Medallion and the dark god trapped within, which could be freed if the war engulfs the entire continent of Tellius.

Dheginsea never gets involved directly in the war, for the sake of preserving the seal on the medallion. However, it is implied that he was strongly tempted by Ashnard to join the fray, when the Mad King enslaved his son, Rajaion and used the feral dragon as his personal mount.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Dheginsea first appears at the ending cutscene of Part 3, Chapter 8: Incandescent Glow. After the Laguz Alliance emerges from Kauku Caves, entering Goldoa by mistake, they are taken to the King to be held trail for their trespass, however unintentional. It is only through the wishes of his subjects Nasir and Ena that the alliance is spared, and allowed to return by land to Gallia, rather than be forced to return via the fiery caves.

Later on, after Ashera's judgement turns almost everyone on Tellius to stone, it is revealed that Dheginsea, along with most of his people, were called to side with Ashera, and prevent Yune's army from reaching her in the Tower of Guidance. In Endgame Rebirth (part 3), the dragon prince and Dheginsea's last surviving son, prince Kurthnaga, faces off against his father, along with Ike and his party. Because Dheginsea refuses to believe that Yune was released from Lehran's Medallion by means of the Galdr of Release, he stands fast, along with most of his dragon subjects, and fights them. Despite his immense power, being far and away the strongest non-divine being in the world, and his lingering blessing from Ashera many centuries ago, he is defeated by Yune's army. With his last breath, he passes on his crown to Kurthnaga, and makes amends with Yune, despite having rewritten history against her. After giving his final regards to his people, he succumbs to his wounds in the tower and dies.

English Deghinsea

Deghinsea The PAL region English version of the games use "Deghinsea" for both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, opting in the latter to maintain consistency with the former rather than becoming more accurate to the Japanese romanization as in the North American approach.
