“Sweet courtesy is ever the herald of hospitality. Will this suffice to explain my actions?”
—Kurthnaga to Ike on Nasir's ship en route to Begnion.

Kurthnaga is a non-playable character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and a playable character in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is the prince of Goldoa and Dheginsea's youngest child. His siblings are Rajaion and Almedha, and he is also the uncle of Soren. Despite his young appearance and status as the youngest dragon across all the clans, he is over 100 years old.


Path of Radiance[]

Ike's group meets Kurthnaga while stranded in Goldoa. He assists the mercenaries by freeing the ship and sending them on their way. He is the first dragon to change the mercenaries' minds about the dragons. His kind character convinced them that dragons were actually a great species.

Radiant Dawn[]

Three years after The Mad King's War, Kurthnaga leaves Goldoa, along with Ena, to stop the war between Begnion and the Laguz, and to find his sister. He first appears in Daein as a pilgrim named Kurth who has been detained by the Begnion Occupational Army. He, Ilyana, and Aimee are rescued by Micaiah and her crew from Gribe Prison, and temporarily travel alongside her afterward.

He becomes Goldoa's new king following Dheginsea's death in the Tower of Guidance at the end of the game and vows to uphold his father’s wishes as the new Black Dragon King. During the epilogue (when certain conditions are met), he is the only person besides Almedha to know the truth about her son.

In the end, Kurthnaga opens Goldoa to the rest of the continent, so that everyone can thrive in peace and Ashunera can come back to Tellius.


A soft-spoken, well-mannered and shy character, Kurthnaga 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 reserved, he can get a little excited, as seen when he visits the desert for the first time.

He also has a strong sense of justice, even leading him to impulsively intervene in the Laguz-Begnion War. and eventually making him confront Dheginsea. Such resolve only strengthens after the death of his father.

It is revealed in Radiant Dawn that he is hemophobic, meaning that he is afraid of blood. This is largely shown in chapter 4-1, where he refuses to fight, and cowers from Ike when he sees blood on his sword.

Kurthnaga joins in the endgame with underwhelming bases, but he has great potential. Upon gaining Formshift, if trained properly, Kurthnaga is effectively a Laguz royal. With the right skillset, Kurthnaga is a force to be reckoned with, and is practically unstoppable. "ParaBlossom" is a great idea, considering his growths in Strength, Speed, and Resistance will skyrocket if used. His Defense will grow well as well, with his Skill remaining mediocre. He is nearly immune to most damage once trained. Celerity is useful due to his low movement, and Nihil will be useful once you recruit Nasir. He'll make decent use of Ire. It won't activate super often due to his low Skill, but considering his Laguz royal status, he has 100 Skill capacity after reaching Level 30, so he has the room for it. While there are many uses a trained Kurthnaga possesses, his starting stats make him difficult to use effectively. He will usually take little damage, but his damage output is somewhat poor, as his Strike level starts at A, which is underwhelming. Part 3 of the endgame could allow him to grind against Dheginsea, and possibly get him to SS Strike, as well as cap many stats if Blossom is assigned.

Overall, Kurthnaga is a powerful unit once trained, but his bases will make this difficult.

Meet Some of the Heroes[]

Autumn Goldoan Kurthnaga
Kurthnaga autumn goldoan pop01 The Kingdom of Goldoa, land of dragon laguz, is the most mysterious realm in all of Tellius. How fortunate we are, then, that Goldoa's very own prince is joining us for the harvest festival! Welcome, Kurthnaga!
Kurthnaga autumn goldoan pop02 Kurthnaga is wearing a special outfit for the festival that isn't Goldoan, but it certainly does stand out from his usual attire. I hear it's based on the garments worn by mages from a faraway land!
Kurthnaga autumn goldoan pop03 Speaking of standing out, just take a look at that magical weapon he has with him! I understand it's a kind of paper lantern, and it's giving off such an enchanting glow!
Kurthnaga autumn goldoan pop04 The dragon laguz of Goldoa rarely have contact with the outside world, so this must be a truly special day for Kurthnaga indeed. I hope he gets the chance to see all the sights the harvest festival has to offer!

  • Kurthnaga's name is a combination of the names of recurring character Naga and the Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War NPC Kurth.
  • During A Faint Light, when Kurthnaga is given the Pilgrim class, his stats page states he is a Beorc.
  • In Kurthnaga's Radiant Dawn artwork, he is shown holding a dagger, which he has never used during the game.
  • In the cutscene where he attacks Castle Nox in Part 3: Chapter 13, he is shown as large as a tower, but in battle, he is much smaller, being barely taller than a beorc. Another thing that makes this strange is the fact Ulki says Kurthnaga is far too big to be a wyvern, yet in battle, wyverns are bigger than Kurthnaga, although this could be simply to have Kurth reasonably fit in the battle screen.
  • Kurthnaga shares his English voice actor, Brandon Winckler, with Fire Emblem: Thracia 776's Kempf.
