Ephidel is a minor antagonist of the Nintendo game Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.
Ephidel was sent by Nergal to meet with Darin, the marquess of Laus, due to requiring large amounts of quintessence (human life energy). Ephidel convinced Darin into rebelling against Ostia, and the deaths caused in the ensuing war would release enough quintessence to please Nergal's needs. Ephidel also visited the other lords whom had pledged themselves to aid Darin's rebellion.
Later, Ephidel arrived at the fortress of Helman, the marquess of Santaruz, where he encountered with Eliwood, who was on his way to Santaruz to investigate Elbert's disappearance. Helman did not think he could bring himself to lie to Eliwood, so Ephidel volunteered to drive Eliwood off without harming him.
However, Ephidel sent his men out to kill Eliwood. When Helman discovered Ephidel's murder attempt, he threatened to expose him to Eliwood, leading Ephidel to deem Helmen useless before killing him. Ephidel then moved to Laus Castle with Darin, and later confronted Eliwood and his men who advanced on Laus Castle. Darin's son, Erik, was dispatched to deal with them this time, but he failed. Ephidel forced Darin to retreat the castle with his army, making Darin abandon both his son and his home.
Later, Ephidel and Darin led an attack against Caelin Castle. When Caelin's marquess, Hausen, attempted to dissuade Darin, Ephidel stabbed him and sent Leila to dispose of the body, unaware that Leila was an Ostian spy. Eliwood continued to fight his way through the Laus troops, so Ephidel convinced Darin to retreat once again, this time abandoning the remnants of the Laus army.
Afterwards, Ephidel took Darin to Nergal's base at the Dragon's Gate on Valor, the Dread Isle, and was dispatched by Nergal when Eliwood and his group arrived on the island. In the process, Ephidel caught Leila spying on the conversation with Nergal, so he summoned Jaffar to kill her. He then had the assassin leave her corpse in the woods to taunt Eliwood's group.
Ephidel later confronted Eliwood and his comrades face-to-face and taunted them, before teleporting himself away with Ninian, whom Nergal wanted alive for his ceremony. Ephidel then left Darin to take care of Eliwood's group while he brought Ninian to Darin. Ephidel then conducted the ceremony with Ninian to summon a dragon. However, Nils's interference caused the dragon to crumble and explode. Ephidel reached out for Nergal's help, but Nergal ignored him. Soon, Ephidel was killed along with the dragon.
