Reyson (リュシオン Ryushion, Rieusion in Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is the third prince of the fallen kingdom of Serenes, and one of the few Herons that survived the Serenes Massacre. He is the only heron playable in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, but the last to be usable in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is 97 in Path of Radiance. He is also the younger brother of Rafiel, but having lived in Phoenicis for the several decades, along with his ailing father, the Heron King Lorazieh, he has picked up many personality traits from the Hawks. He is also described by Ike in one conversation with Rafiel that he wishes he could be more like Tibarn, the Hawk King. He possesses a temper and an iron will that are quite lacking in his brother. Initially, Reyson bears a hatred for all Beorc that stems from the destruction caused by the people of Begnion in the Serenes Massacre. He is rescued after Apostle Sanaki suspected that Oliver still held illegal laguz slaves, and sent Ike to inspect Duke Oliver's grounds. Once Reyson talks to Naesala, he partially forgives Naesala for having sold him to Duke Tanas of Begnion, as long as Naesala stops aiding Daein in battle and withdraws from the current battle posthaste. Naesala accepts the truce and leaves along with his ravens. Naesala keeps his promise and, in an act of repentance, saves Reyson's sister, Leanne, from captivity, helping Crimea in a change of heart decision. In the final battle of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, he aids Ike. However, he only joins Ike in Path of Radiance because he sees Ike helping Leanne.
In Path of Radiance, he sings the Galdr of Rebirth with Leanne to heal Serenes Forest from the burning by Begnion.
In Radiant Dawn, he sings the Galdr of Rebirth (usually a two-man Galdr, but he is able to perform this feat alone due to the high level of order present in the world as result of the waking of Ashera) to cure Renning, King Ramon's brother and Elincia's uncle, of the feral elixir invented by Izuka. After Radiant Dawn's events finish and the bird tribes unite, he becomes a leader in the political arena.
In his supports with Tormod, he is repeatedly asked if he could use his galdr to make the desert fertile but he can't. It takes Tormod a while to realize this.
Like all Herons, he does not attack and plays a supporting role on the battlefield. He lets one adjacent unit that has used its turn act again, but when he transforms, he refreshes all surrounding units.
