Church of Seiros

Image Name Class Notes
??? ??? A serene-looking woman who appears to be the figurehead of the Church of Seiros. She may be the woman standing in the middle of a violent battlefield, later clutching a golden blade.
??? ??? A man seen standing to the side of the woman above. Perhaps an adjutant of some kind.

Byleth ??? You; the main character of the game. A mercenary who was invited to become a teacher at Garreg Mach Monastery. Possesses a strange power. Can be male or female.
Jeralt ??? Your pops. The leader of a mercenary group that you’re a member of. Somehow stays alive long enough to deliver you to the Garreg Mach Monastery.
Sothis ??? A mysterious girl who only appears in your dreams. She has pointy ears and green hair, reminiscent of the Divine Dragons of Archanea. Didn’t we just see her headdress somewhere above?

Adrestian Empire / Black Eagles

Image Name Class Notes
Edelgard Noble Full name Edelgard von Hresvelg. The next Emperor of the Adrestian Empire and the House Leader of the Black Eagles. She seems to favour the axe.
Ferdinand  ??? Seen in the background when Edelgard is showing off her lovely crest. Later found dueling Sylvain. Seems to start off as a lance user.
Bernadetta  Noble Hiding underneath a book when Edelgard is flashing her crest around. Looks to be a bow user at the beginning.
Dorothea  ??? A girl with wavy hair, wearing a hat. Seen with the rest of the Black Eagles. Later, has a study session with Byleth. Appears to wield Reason magic and isn’t shabby with the Sword, but lacks Faith.
Petra  ??? A purple-haired girl unleashing a possibly rigged critical hit. Definitely a Black Eagle. Likely a sword user to begin with.
Linhardt  Noble The son of Lyn and Reinhardt. Again, seen with the Black Eagles. Adept with Reason and Faith magic. But doesn’t excel at Riding. So a fraud.
Caspar  ??? What’s Akihiko from Persona 3 doing here? Regardless, he seems to enjoy fighting with his fists. Also likes Axes.
???  ??? A dark-haired male with hair covering one of his eyes. Is it just to look cool or is he hiding something? Spotted wielding Reason magic. Also participates in a Gambit Boost.
