“Why do things always go Eldigan's way?”
—Elliot's death quote

Elliot is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is a young upstart noble of Agustria, and considers himself the rival of Eldigan for Lachesis's affections.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Elliot is first seen attempting an attack on Sigurd in Chapter 1, is thankfully pushed back by Eldigan's timely intervention. He later appears again in Chapter 2, where he attempts to attack Nordion upon Eldigan's departure. Elliot will eventually perish as a result, as Sigurd's forces manage to reach Nordion in time to defend it.

In-Game[edit | edit source]

Overview[edit | edit source]

Elliot is fought in Chapter 2, and is the first mounted boss the player will face. His entire cavalry group possesses Canto, and can target vulnerable units with impunity. If Elliot is damaged but survives the turn, he will return to castle Heirhein and exit with another cavalry group. Cutting down his force as quickly as possible is imperative. Killing him with Quan would be a good idea, just to ensure that Quan gets his Silver Lance. The battle is slightly luck dependent, so player should be cautious with their mid-chapter saves.

During Chapter 1, Elliot's forces will suffer a near guaranteed rout at the hands of Eldigan's forces, so he can safely be ignored. Some players might want to send Arden out to join in on the battle(as he likely won't be getting much EXP in the chapter otherwise), but this is a somewhat risky strategy, as it could get Arden killed.
