AFAICS Linux console has only partial support of Unicode
(U+0000 to U+01FF, which only covers ISO8859-* and
maybe koi8-r).  I think using Unicode in your case is not
possible without improving Linux console a lot.  I once 
tried to hack it for CJK languages but gave it up.

See console-tools/console-data.  But there's no good
documentation in those..  You need to read existing
keymaps and source code.
