“What's that? Here I thought Verdane would workout somehow... You're just a bunch of savages. I've no longer any use for you. I'll be taking command of the troops from here on out.”

Sandima is a character from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. He is a member of the Loptr Church working under Manfroy, and is responsible for bewitching King Batou into starting the Verdane invasion of Grannvale. Sandima was assigned the task of locating Cigyun's only daughter, and second child, Deirdre, who is said to be somewhere in Verdane. As Sigurd's army approaches the Spirit Forest, Sandima fatally wounds King Batou, and henceforth takes over the forces of Verdane. Sandima is later slain by Sigurd's troops, with the help of Deirdre's Silence Staff.
