Eltharion is a High Elves Legendary Lord introduced in Total War: Warhammer II with The Warden and the Paunch DLC. In battle, he is a versatile unit proficient in both melee and magic and can ride a fearsome griffon.

In the campaign, he leads the Yvresse faction.


This city will never be safe. Not whilst HE is still out there. - Eltharion the Grim

Eltharion the Grim, Prince of Yvresse and Warden of Tor Yvresse is a great Elven lord and ruler of the Kingdom of Yvresse in Ulthuan. His misty, forested, coastal kingdom is sparsely inhabited (even by Elven standards) and is protected by magical mists that confuse and waylay trespassers and invaders, leading them into ambushes or rough terrain.

Eltharion has a bitter grudge against Grom the Paunch, a rotund Goblin Warboss who once laid waste to much of Yvresse and killed Eltharion's father, Moranion. Though he had returned the favour by killing Blaktooth, the warlord's right hand shaman, The Greenskin slipped from his grasp. Now, Eltharion must focus on restoring the defences of Tor Yvresse, even strengthening them, for the return of his Archnemesis. Although the orcs take prioreity, the Grim Warden has sworn to never let his homeland fall to anyone, and there are other power who seek Ulthuan for themselves

In Total War: Warhammer II, Eltharion seeks to rebuild his ancestral home of Athel Tamarha, destroyed in ages past by Grom, to withstand Grom's next attack and gain final revenge. In order to do this he must use every tool at his disposal, including his Warden's Cage and elite Mistwalker units.

  • Eltharion starts the campaign with a High Elf Noble hero named Cavill. This is a reference to actor Henry Cavill (known for playing Superman, and Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Netflix series) who said that Total War: Warhammer II is one of his favourite games.
