Laguz (black dragon)



Rajaion (Japanese: ラジャイオン Rajaion) is a key non-playable character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. Rajaion is a dragon laguz who was twisted and used by the Mad King of Daein, his brother-in-law Ashnard, and made to serve as his "wyvern" mount.


Nineteen years[2] before the Mad King's War (after Almedha, Rajaion's younger sister, gave birth to Ashnard's son Soren), Rajaion left Goldoa to rescue Almedha and Soren.[3] Unfortunately, when Rajaion arrived in Daein, he was captured by Ashnard and transformed into a Feral One, corrupting his mind and locking him into draconic state.

Ena then left Goldoa, and found Rajaion warped and serving Ashnard in Daein. After discovering this, she asked her grandfather Nasir to help her save, or at least be near, Rajaion. Nasir left Goldoa at his granddaughter's request. Ena's devotion to this task was single-minded, as she wished to be with her lover Rajaion, or to be dead.

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance


Rajaion's final moments with Ena.

Rajaion appears in the final battle, as mentioned above, serving as Ashnard's mount. After Ashnard is killed in battle Rajaion regained his sanity in the aftermath and had the galdr of rebirth chanted to him, but still died peacefully in Ena's arms.

Due to ambiguities in the translation for the English release of Path of Radiance, it was initially unclear if Rajaion actually survived the events of the game. It wasn't until clarification in the sequel, Radiant Dawn, particularly as told by his brother Kurthnaga in chapter 1 of part 4,[4] as well as the game's relationship chart, was it clearly known that Rajaion did in fact die at the end of Path of Radiance.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Rajaion, being deceased during the events of Radiant Dawn, makes no appearances; he is mentioned by some characters and appears in the game's glossary.
