Alva (Genealogy of the Holy War)
Alva (Japanese: アルヴァ Alva) is a member of Nordion's elite Cross Knights alongside his brothers Eva and Eve. During the Agustrian civil war, he, along with his brothers, was tasked with the job of protecting Princess Lachesis of Nordion.
Alva is a Cross Knight of Nordion who was tasked with the job of guarding Princess Lachesis from Elliot along with his brothers Eve and Eva. Depending on the player's actions in Chapter 2, Alva and his brothers may be killed in the fighting, or may successfully protect Lachesis and themselves survive; if they do survive, Alva and his brothers gift a Knight Ring to Lachesis before returning to guard Nordion.
Alva is a soldier of Nordion in Chapter 2; he and his brothers follow Lachesis.

Eve, Eva, and Alva's roles are greatly expanded upon in Fujimori Nuttsu's Genealogy of the Holy War manga, which adapts the events of the first generation of the game in a more comedic manner. Alva is introduced as the youngest brother of the Famous Triplet Paladins of Nordion, who all look near-identical and are easily mistaken for another even after changing their hairstyles to be distinct. Alva is depicted as being the lazy and mischievous one of the trio, and he is occasionally shown to be quite childish. As such, he is often used for comic relief.
Unlike in Chapter 2 of Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Eve, Eva, and Alva were initially tasked with accompanying Lachesis's attack on Sigurd's army, which she mistook for Elliot's. After this misunderstanding was resolved, Alva assisted Sigurd's army in fighting Elliot's and Macbeth's armies.
During the assault on Mackily Castle, Clement managed to put Lachesis to sleep with his Sleep staff. Eve, in a blind rage, ordered Eva and Alva to storm the castle with him, single-handedly destroying any opposition. Inside the castle, the trio confronted and managed to kill Clement.
After the battle and during a conversation between Eve and Eva, Alva was forced to confess to being the person who ate Eve's hidden cookie stash; he was then coerced to go out and buy cookies for him.
Following the capture of Agusti Castle and Eldigan's rescue, Alva revealed to his siblings that he was given a Knight Ring by Eldigan (who had mistaken him for Eva) to give to Lachesis back when Eldigan went off to plead with Chagall. Eve, seeing an opportunity to be alone with Lachesis, promptly took the ring from Alva and delivered it to her.
