Istvan (イトッツ Itottsu) is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.
Istvan serves under Duke Seliora as a high-ranking general. He seeks to crush the Laguz Alliance in order to receive a hefty monetary reward for his efforts, and pays no attention towards the Greil Mercenaries, assuming they are mere bandits in the alliance. Despite his status, the ensuing battle sees the Dragonmaster's army being overwhelmed, and meeting his end against Ike's army.
Owing to the minor role Istvan plays, his personality is largely vague. Despite this, his battle quotes depicts him as a competitive individual filled with greed, who competes against his affiliated army in crushing his enemies severely to earn the highest reward. Even more when leaving behind a large amounts of bodies of the fallen Laguz. As a Begnion soldier, he also has no knowledge of the Greil Mercenaries despite their reputation from the previous war.

Istvan: What luck! Enemy comes in tiny numbers. Get up, comrades! We cannot let other army take reward! Crush the enemy and gain glory for Lord Seliora!
Istvan: I am Istvan, general of Seliora's imperial army! You, leader of sub human filth! State your name!
Ike: I'm Ike of the Greil Mercenaries.
Istvan: Greil Mercenaries? Hm. Never heard of them! You are just small-time bandits, yes? Argh! If we had left behind dead bodies of sub-humans, our reward would have been bigger! My lord is not being pleased with heads of bandits!
Ike: Oh, I wouldn't worry about our heads. You have no chance to win this fight. Leave while you can.
Istvan: W-wait...! This cannot be! Our... reward...
The name Istvan is the Hungarian equivalent to Stephen or Stefan.
