FERD Mordecai.png
Artwork of Mordecai from Radiant Dawn.

A member of the tiger clan of the beast tribe laguz. He is a powerful fighter who serves under Lethe, but is a rarity among laguz that he dislikes fighting. He is unskilled with the modern tongue.





Starting class



Mordecai (モウディ, Moudi, Mordy in Japan) is a tiger laguz from the kingom of Gallia. He works with Lethe, who is his superior. He is large, but very gentle; however, when Soren called him a "sub-human" he almost attacked Soren. He does not speak the language of the beorc very fluently.

Him and Lethe are stationed in Crimea to help with laguz-beorc alliances.
