Three Houses: Official Character Videos and Profiles (Part 1)

Following last week’s Famitsu article, Nintendo has started posting videos and characters profiles for Three Houses on their Twitter and Facebook accounts.

In this article, we’ve collected all the videos and profiles released so far–for the 5 characters introduced in Famitsu. The videos are from the Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter account, while the profiles are from the Fire Emblem UK Facebook page.

Currently, it’s not known if they’ll continue posting more characters. Hopefully they do, because there are a fair amount of characters (at least 7 for each house) that they need to get through, ideally before 26th July.

Note: Any additional character posts made before the end of this week will be added here. Update: Jeralt and Rhea have been added.

Protagonist


In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, you’ll begin as a travelling mercenary in a group led by your father, Jeralt. After an unexpected incident reveals your hidden power, you’ll be invited to become a professor at Garreg Mach Monastery.

As a professor, lead students in their academic lives and on the battlefield when Fire Emblem: Three Houses launches for Nintendo Switch on July 26.

Sothis


Fine. A lesser being like you wouldn’t understand the true value of your life, right? Honestly…Well, I’ll just have to lead you myself!

–Translated by NekoKnight.

Sothis is a mysterious being who appears in the protagonist’s dreams after saving them in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

With no memories of her past and wisdom beyond her appearance, she speaks as though she lives within their head, but no one else is aware of her existence.

Edelgard


I suppose I should introduce myself properly. My name is Edelgard von Hresvelg. I am the imperial princess of the Adrestian Empire, and heir apparent to the throne. I wonder if you would end up taking over our class…

–Translated by SatsumaFSoysoy.

Edelgard is the imperial princess in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, heir to the throne of the Adrestian Empire and house leader of the Black Eagles.

She has a dignified, high-minded, solemn air about her, and she coolly evaluates her surroundings and those around her before she acts.

Dimitri


Now then. My name is Dimitri Alexander Blaiddyd. I’m the prince of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus, but… Here, I’m just another student. I’m still inexperienced, but I look forward to your guidance, teacher.

–Translated by SatsumaFSoysoy.

In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Dimitri is house leader of the Blue Lions and next in line to the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus.

He is a sincere young man who seems like the embodiment of chivalry, but a faint tinge of darkness lies beneath his cheerful demeanor.

Claude


Well, I guess I should introduce myself. I’m Claude von Riegan. My family’s the head of the Leicester Alliance, but eh, no need to worry about that. Have you decided on which class you want to teach yet? We’re more fun than the others if you ask me.

–Translated by SatsumaFSoysoy.

Claude is the heir to House Riegan in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, leading house of the Leicester Alliance, and the Golden Deer house leader.

He seems easygoing, but he sometimes shows a side that you can’t let your guard down around.

Jeralt


Just from listening to your story, I can’t say I’ve ever met such a person. Well anyway, you should forget about all of that. In a battle you should focus on what’s important. As mercenaries, we’re regularly putting our lives on the line. Getting distracted with unnecessary things will land you in an early grave.

–Translated by NekoKnight.


The protagonist’s father. An experienced soldier, he was formally a captain in the knights of Seiros and is said to be the strongest knight in history. After leaving the knights, he led a mercenary group and continued his travels. His wife has already passed away. After saving some students from brigands, his life took a turn and he rejoined the knights.

–Translated by NekoKnight.

Rhea


Please support the students so they can live without worries.
>Of course.
>I’ll do what I can.
Good. I have great expectations for you.

–Translated by NekoKnight.


The Archbishop, highest leader of the Church of Seiros. She has held this position since Jeralt’s days as a knight. She greatly values the protagonist’s abilities, inviting them to the Officer’s Academy. Like a loving mother, she is kind and gentle to others, but she has a harsh side as well, passing down judgment to those that would oppose the church.

–Translated by SatsumaFSoysoy.

    I’m guessing Sunday will be Jeralt to correlate with the first famitsu bios and finally new characters and whatever else next week coming.

    • Bcardia

      Yeah, it’s either Jeralt or the head of the church(the green haired woman).

      • Brave Lady Lyn

        We both called it!!!

        • Bcardia

          Daaaamn.
          Next prediction: The next character is going to be Rhea’s assistant with the dark green hair.

          • BladeLord Lyn

            Looks like they’re finally gonna do the other characters in the houses!

  • Bcardia

    “He is a sincere young man who seems like the embodiment of chivalry, but
    a faint tinge of darkness lies beneath his cheerful demeanor.”

    Honestly, Dimitri is my least favorite of the three, but his description makes him sound rather interesting.

    • I’m going to decide during the course of the gameplay. I think choosing the house that resonates the best with your own values is a more interesting route to take than arbitrarily making a choice based on design beforehand. Hopefully there’ll be nuances that will actually differentiate them in both story and gameplay though, otherwise the whole thing will be pointless.

      • Bcardia

        Not sure if it’s possible to make a sound decision during the course of gameplay since it seems like choosing your house is one of the first things you do after arriving at the Monastery. So one got to rely on previews/reviews to catch all the differences (gameplay and story), unless Nintendo/Intsys themselves will disclose all the information before the release.
        But I’m with you, I hope the houses really differ a lot for the sake of replay value.

    To be honest, I think the the guys’ introductions seem more interesting (less cold? plain? idk) than Edelgard’s, but o why must the creators make her look so darn attractive :'( men are simple creatures and I’m prob gonna pick her house just because of that *sigh*. But, still planning to play all of them, and who knows, might make a 180 turn if I like one of the characters from the other houses. Can’t wait for upcoming character profiles/introductions 😀
