The Blazing Blade Edit
Santaruz ruled by Lord Helman in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. It is mentioned that Lord Helman is childless and that he and Lord Elbert, Eliwood's father, are close friends. So close he considers Eliwood a relative. Helman was killed by Ephidel upon deciding to betray the Black Fang and tell Eliwood the truth. This occurs during Chapter 13. Once Helman dies, the Steward of Santaruz asks what they should do, and Hector instructs him to give Lord Helman a proper burial, and defend the castle until the Lycian Council meets.
