“...Sigurd, I've heard enough. It's just you and I on the battlefield now. Two knights fighting with grace and honour. But I'm not about to fall with the Mystletainn at my side... 'Til death!”
—Eldigan to Sigurd when the latter moves near him in Genealogy of the Holy War.

Eldigan (エルトシャン, Erutoshan, Eltshan in the Japanese version) is the commander of the Cross Knights and the lord of Nordion in Agustria during the first generation of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Being a direct descendant of Hezul, he wields the powerful 'Demon Sword' Mystletainn. Despite being a friend to both Sigurd and Quan, he is immensely loyal to Agustria, following the orders of a tyrannical king in order to defend his country from Sigurd's invasion. After Sigurd catptures Madino Castle, he leads the Cross Knights out to confront Sigurd's army, where he is persuaded to abandon the battle by his sister Raquesis.

ProfileEdit

Eldigan is the older half-brother of Raquesis, and is a close friend of Sigurd and Quan, both of whom he first met at Belhalla's military academy.

Eldigan is extremely loyal to the Agustrian royal family, as his ancestors were indirect descendants of Hezul who inadvertently inherited the Hezul major Holy Blood. They thus swore to utilize the powers of Mystletainn to protect the royal family.

During Verdane's invasion of Grannvale, Sigurd captures Evans castle and uses it as a base for his army's operations. Eldigan pays a visit to Sigurd, where he promises to watch over Evans while Sigurd marches deeper into Verdane. Shortly after, Elliot, the prince of Heirhein, moves out to capture Evans, but is stopped in his tracks by Eldigan and his Cross Knights. Eldigan is held in custody as a result of this action, but is released shortly afterwards.

Once Verdane is subdued, Sigurd is forced to fight against Agustria, whereupon King Chagall accuses Eldigan of being a traitor for not aiding him earlier, and so Elgidan decides to finally lead his knights against Sigurd's forces due to his immense loyalty to his country. As the two armies clash swords, Raquesis pleads with Eldigan, attempting to convince him to stop the senseless fighting. Eldigan, moved by his sister's pleas, leaves the battlefield, attempting to reason with Chagall. However, the king refuses to listen to his request, and has Eldigan immediately executed for treason.

Eldigan's wife, Grahnye, later leaves for her parents' house in Leonster with her son Ares in tow, in a bid to avoid being embroiled in the raging war within Agustria. Sadly, when Leonster falls following the Battle of River Thracia, Grahnye and her parents are killed, resulting in Ares being raised by Jabarro and his mercenary troop.

OverviewEdit

Eldigan appears twice on the battlefield: once during Chapter 1, and then later in Chapter 3. In Chapter 1, he is an ally of the player's, and alongside his troop of Cross Knights, makes short work of Elliot.

In Chapter 3, however, Eldigan will be forced to turn against the player. Despite not possessing any skills, Eldigan is extremely difficult to defeat due to his 5-Star Leadership and the powerful Mystletainn. It is thus highly recommended to simply have Raquesis speak to him in order to receive the Earth Sword, and more importantly, get Eldigan to leave the battlefield.

AwakeningEdit

Eldigan's appearance in Awakening makes him playable for the first time.

QuotesEdit

Battle ConversationsEdit

  • Once Sigurd and Eldigan get near each other:

Sigurd: Eldigan, please! Put down your sword! I don't want to fight you! I still have every intention of handing over Agusty! Please, I just need a little more time!
Eldigan: ...Sigurd, I've heard enough. It's just you and I on the battlefield now. Two knights fighting with grace and honor. But I'm not about to fall with the Mystletainn at my side... 'Til death!

Battle QuoteEdit

Default
“This is the Demon Sword, Mystletainn. If you don’t wish to become its prey, then don’t come anywhere near me...”
—Eldigan's battle quote

Vs. Sigurd
Eldigan: Sigurd... I never expected to ever have to cross swords with you. As knights, however, this is our fate. There is nothing either of us can do about it.
Sigurd: W, wait! Eldigan!!

Vs. Raquesis
Eldigan: No, Raquesis! I don’t want to fight you!!

Death QuoteEdit

“Forgive me... Agustria...”
—Eldigan's death quote in Genealogy of the Holy War.

ArchetypeEdit

In Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi, there was a strong Paladin late in the game who was honorable and kind and seemed to hold no ill towards Marth's army, but fought out of loyalty to his country. Since then, in the games there has often been an enemy general who holds no ill will towards the player's army, and may even have loved ones or friends in that army, but continues to fight due to loyalty to their nation or lord, despite being fully aware that what their nation or leader is doing is wrong and knowing full well that they will not survive. In addition, unlike other enemy commanders, they care about the well being of their subordinates, to the point where they allow anyone who does not wish to fight to leave the battlefield. Unlike Camus, a majority of characters under his archetype do not survive.

List of CamusesEdit

There are others who are considered Camuses, but this is the generally agreed upon list.

TriviaEdit

  • Nanna's lover conversation with Ares in the Final Chapter reveals that Eldigan and Raquesis have different mothers. Furthermore, Raquesis fell in love with Eldigan, although Eldigan's feelings towards her are not made clear.
  • Eldigan has a battle sprite slightly different to other male paladins in the game.
  • Eldigan, Palla and Est are the only recruitable DLC characters in Awakening that do not have recruitable SpotPass versions.
  • Eldigan is the only DLC character in Awakening to not have new character art.
