Eliwood was born of the noble house of Pherae, his father was Lord Elbert and his mother was Lady Eleanora. His childhood best friend was Hector the younger brother of the Marquess Ostia. These two attended school together and as they grew older their friendship grew as well.
Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken
By chance one day when Eliwood was scheduled to meet with Hector he stumbled upon a group of bandits who had captured a young girl named Ninian. After he set about rescuing the girl he met Lyn and decided to see if he could help her in her quest to free Caelin from Lord Lundgren. Eliwood convinced Caelin's neighbors to remain neutral in Lyn's dispute.
Eliwood is a noble on a quest to find his father, who had been kidnapped by the Dark Druid, Nergal. His objectives soon change, however, and Eliwood fights a group of assassins called the Black Fang. As the story progresses, Eliwood comes to battle with Nergal's morphs (zombie-like creatures, some of who are sentient), Nergal himself, and a renegade Fire Dragon to save the world. To defeat Nergal, he journeys deep within the earth to retrieve Durandal, a legendary sword and the eponymous Rekka no Ken or "Blazing Sword", which was used by Roland, the founder of Lycia.

At the start of the game, he is beset by illness, so he decides to stay at Castle Pherae to not be a burden on Roy, he then sent his son to Ostia and hired Dieck's mercenaries to help him. However, he and Hector can be used as playable characters after you beat the game in the link arena and the battle maps. He comes as a Paladin.
Eliwood and Fiora- Eliwood and Fiora were wed after the conflict. A group of Lycian nobles protested that she was a mercenary, but none could sunder their bond of love. They have a son named Roy who will become a great hero.
Eliwood and Lyn- The marquess of Pherae and the princess of Caelin were wed after the conflict. All of Lycia was in an uproar, but none could sunder their bond of love. They have a son named Roy, who will become a great hero.
Eliwood and Ninian- Eliwood and Ninian were wed after the conflict. Ninian gave up her old life and her people to enjoy a brief life with Eliwood. They have a son named Roy, who will one day take up arms to defend his nation.
Supports that have no Ending:
- When Eliwood is a Lord class he holds his sword in his right hand. When he promotes into a Knight Lord however he holds swords and Lances in his left hand.
- Although Lyn was meant only to be in Fire Emblem 7, and be paired with Lord Eliwood as Roy's possible Mother, it is a fact in Fire Emblem 6 in a support conversation level B between Lilina and Marcus that Lyn seems to highly be ruled out as Roy's possible Mother. The flower mentioned in the conversation hints heavily towards the marriage of either Ninian or Fiora Marcus: "Lord Eliwood loved his wife deeply. And one night...before the two became engaged, Lord Eliwood suddenly disappeared from the castle. When he returned to his love three days later, he presented her with a beautiful white flower which only grows in the snowy highlands. It was the flower which she loved the most."

Eliwood's name possibly comes from the Germanic name elements "alf" and 'wood,' meaning 'wood of elves,' which might be a reference to Avalon, the legendary island where King Arthur supposedly went to be healed after his last battle. Alternatively, the name 'Elwood' means 'elder tree forest' in Old English
