Naesala is first introduced in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and is the king of Kilvas, the island of Ravens. His tribe is a member of the Bird Tribe, but is widely known as pirates, thieves, and traitors. This could be because of Naesala's personality. Throughout the story line of both; Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, he finds himself compelled to disobey his fellow Laguz, and destroy the trust that took him so long to regain. Things such as: Selling off Reyson, or when he is forced to help Begnion at one point in the story.
Though he is found a traitor by others, Naesala is always looking out for his people. To them, he is the ideal king, and protects them no matter what. His first priority, in fact, is his homeland, and his decietful acts are always made in order to help them out. Naesala also has a deep friendship with both Leanne and Reyson, the Heron siblings. His past acts have forced them to distrust them, but they too have his protection.
