This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Elffin is a typical Dancer, possessing fairly high luck and speed, but poor bulk and the inability to fight back. As he will never face combat, his stats do not really matter, but an Angelic Robe can be used to improve his survivability if needed. It can allow his to survive being struck by a siege tome or a ballista, for instance.

Elffin has the ability to dance for player units who have already taken a turn, allowing them to move again. This is extremely useful for a variety of different situations, most notably allowing the player to easily use warp more than once a turn in order to skip certain maps. The uses of a dancer are almost endless, and are only limited by the player's creativity. Because of the great utility Elffin offers, he is overall an invaluable asset, especially when playing the game on hard mode.

Elffin, One of True Sight
Short: Disappeared before anyone could notice.

Long: After the war, Elffin disappeared without a word. Several months later, an official announcement was made in Etruria that Prince Myrddin was alive. The prince that hid his identity to help General Roy in the war... That story is now a favorite among bards and writers.


Death quote

Argh... This wound... I must retreat...
— Elffin

Final Chapter quote

Let there be peace in your dying heart...
