“Take this! ELTHUNDER!!”
—Eliu's battle quote

Eliu is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. She is one of the members of Duke Bloom's sister magi squad, consisting of herself, Vampa and Fetra. Each of the sisters specializes in a particular type of magic, Eliu's being Thunder. The three sisters appear in both Chapters 7 and 8, and will die in the latter chapter while facing off against Seliph's army.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Eliu is fought twice, once in Chapter 7, and another in Chapter 8. The only difference between the two encounters is that in the first one, Eliu possesses a Life Ring, while in the second one, Eliu has a Leg Ring instead. Eliu does not have any leadership stars, and it is thus recommended to defeat her after slaying Vampa.

Triangle Attack[]

If Vampa, Fetra, and Eliu manage to surround a unit on three sides (a triangle), they can activate a Triangle Attack, which is essentially a guaranteed critical hit. It is worth noting that Vampa is always the initiator of the attack.
