The Taliver Bandits are a ruthless tribe of brigands mentioned in Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken who reside the mountains of the Sacae/Bern border, especially Taliver Mountain, from which they get their name. However, no members are seen or named in-game. They pillage nearby villages and camps without care or mercy, even killing women and children, an act which disgusts even rival bandit groups like the Ganelon Bandits, who prefer to hold women for ransom. They are also the murderers of Lyn's parents, Hassar and Madelyn, along with the Lorca tribe, with Lyn being the only survivor. They poisoned the tribe's drinking water, then attacked the clan during the night. Lyn later swears to avenge her parents and tribe by killing all of the Taliver Bandits. This prompts her to start her adventure and hone her skills with the blade, and is the reason Lyn distrusts all bandits, thieves, and pirates.
Later, during Eliwood's (or Hector's) story, it is learned from a support between Lyn and General Wallace that during his time away from Caelin, Wallace traveled to Bern and wiped out all of the Taliver Bandits on his own. This angers Lyn, as she wanted to kill them herself. Wallace explains that he did it out of compassion for her, to make sure she was not consumed by hatred for all her life, and that she would not disgrace her grandfather Hausen's name, and her parents' names, with that same hatred.
