At the end of Path of Radiance,
While it was not directly stated, it was heavily implied that he died.
However, I think it was less clear in the English version, and thus
some people believed that he survived.
Taken from the final chapter script:
Ena: ...Rajaion? D-do you know
who I am?
Rajaion: ...E... Ena?
Ena: Yes... Yes! You recognize
Rajaion: You were made...to
me... I'm sorry
Ena: ...Sniff... Rajaion!
Rajaion: ...Ena... Let's return
to Goldoa. The two of us...together.
Ena: I will go anywhere, my
love, as long
as it is with you.
Rajaion: Ena...from this day
[Rajaion's portrait vanishes]
Ena: ... Sniff......sniff...
Although Rajaion was brought back to his human form, he could not be
completely saved. When he speaks there are many ellipses (more in the
Japanese version) and he makes many pauses (not shown here). Also his
last words, his portrait vanishing and Ena crying strongly imply that
Also in the Epilogue:
Ena: Yes. We must take Rajaion
back to his hometown.
(Nasir not present)
Ena: Yes. I must help Rajaion
return to his hometown.
Although Ena seems to contradict herself, it is implied that she is
going to take Rajaion's dead body back home. Why else would they return
him home (other than he hasn't been back for ages)?
Finally, solid proof in Radiant Dawn.

it truly... peaceful?
Ike: His body was warped by
King Daein, but he returned to normal thanks to Reyson's galldr....When
Rajaion returned to human form, he rested in the arms of Ena and
smiled... Before falling into a deep sleep.
(Translated from the Japanese version)
If this sounds familiar then it should- Ike is explaining what happened
at the end of Path of Radiance.
Hopefully this should clear some things up, and provide some proof
beyond the character relationship chart. I assume some people already
suspected that Rajaion died in Path
of Radiance, but I still encountered quite a number of people
who believe he survived.
