“Who is in charge here, my lord? Must you follow Zelgius's orders?”
—Lombroso to refuse Zelgius's order to ceasefire for three days.
Lombroso (ロンブローゾ Ronburōzo) is a boss character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is ordered to attack, even though the three-day truce that General Zelgius offered to the Laguz Alliance was still in effect. He leads the siege of Castle Seliora in Chapter 3-5: Retreat! under the orders of an unnamed senator and was probably the general of the unnamed senator's personal army.
His forces are ultimately defeated by the Greil Mercenaries, who were left in Castle Seliora after the three-day ceasefire was announced. He either dies in combat or is ordered to pull out by Levail, never to be heard from again.
Like many of the senators he served, Lombroso saw the war with the Laguz Alliance as an opportunity to drive the "sub-humans" to extinction and was disappointed with how Zelgius's victory over Skrimir prevented that. He had very little respect for Zelgius, describing him as a "sanctimonious has-been". He readily pointed out to a senator, who outranked Zelgius, that he could ignore Zelgius's commands and authorize Lombroso to attack the laguz anyway. He believed that sheer numbers were enough to win a battle and had no real respect for strategy or skill.

Lombroso: The outcome of a battle depends solely on the number of troops in the field! Tactics and skill are nothing in the face of sheer numbers! Wait, are you laughing at me? Gah! Die, you insolent cur!

Ah, a heron! You’ll make a nice gift for my lord!
- Vs. Ike
Lombroso: Hmph, pathetic. Your tiny band of outlaws doesn't stand a chance before our might. We have more troops on the way. The onslaught will not stop until every last one of you lies dead!
Ike: Are you the best Begnion could send?
Lombroso: What?! How dare you take that tone with me!
Ike: Or did they send you at all? Does General Zelgius know about this little excursion?
Lombroso: I don't take orders from that sanctimonious has-been. Enough questions. Prepare to die!
Lombroso: Im-impossible! But how? We outnumbered them...
Begnion Soldier: General Lombroso has fallen! R-retreat! Fall back to base camp!
- Lombroso is a surname from the Sephardi family.
