“Why do things always go Eldigan's way?”
—Elliot's death quote
Elliot (エリオット Eriotto) 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 Raquesis's affections. 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.

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. 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 or even allow a stray cavalier to slip past Eldigan's forces and seize the player's castle.
“Grr... Men, retreat! I shall return!”
—Elliot's defeat quote in Chapter 1
“Wha...? Why is the Grannvale Army here!? Let's finish this and wipe 'em out!”
—Elliot's battle quote in chapter 2
Elliot: Princess Raquesis... This has gone far enough. If you'll become my wife, I'll spare you.
Raquesis: You filthy...! Become your wife!? I'd rather die!!
