Playable Characters



The main hero of the game.



Edelgard von Hræsvelgr

Class: Aristocrat

Voiced by: Cristina Valenzuela (English)

"Such a brutal, irrational world we live in. Some believe the Crests, tokens of the Goddess's power, are necessary to maintain order. But they're wrong, Teacher. The Crests are to blame."

One of the main characters of the game. As an Aristocrat, she can wield axes and swords. Hails from the nation of Adrastea.

  • Action Girl: A heroine wielding swords, axes, AND magic, and shown in battle in the teaser trailer? Yeah, she's totally gonna be one.
  • An Axe to Grind: She wields axes as one of her primary weapons, and is shown with them in the trailer.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Gives a speech to this effect in the E3 teaser.
    Edelgard: Do you dare to walk this path with me? One misstep and we fall to our ruin... So take your first step! IT'S NOW OR NEVER!
  • The Hero: Heavily implied to be the primary lord/protagonist of Three Houses given the prominence given to both her and Hræsvelgr. The crest of Hræsvelgr is prominently positioned in the arrangement of various crests on the Seal of the church and can be seen on the banners of the explorable castle, giving it an impression of particular importance.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: She can use swords in battle.
  • Magic Knight: The E3 teaser shows her having access to magic in addition to her physical weapons.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is German for "Noble Protector".
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Despite her waifish physique, Edelgard is a physical powerhouse who swings and twirls battleaxes around one-handed. Her stats shown so far give her a whopping 29 health at level 3, where Dmitri and Claude have 19 and 21 respectively.
  • One-Handed Zweihänder: Carries and swings her axe around in one hand.
  • Red Is Heroic: Wears predominately red, and she's a heroic individual.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Her last name comes from Hræsvelgr, a giant from Norse Mythology who can take the form of an eagle.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: An aristocrat that leads from the front.
  • The Von Trope Family: Von Hræsvelgr.
  • Weapon Twirling: She does a little twirl at the end of her attack animation.


Dimitri Alexandre Bladud

One of the main characters of the game. He can wield lances. Hails from Fergus.


Claude von Regan

One of the main characters of the game. He can wield bows. Hails from Leicester.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Noticably darker-skinned than the other characters shown.
  • Ascended Extra: Not him in particular, but he's the first main character to use Bows as his main weapon type outside of Holmes in Tear Ring Saga (Alm and Lyn gain bows as a secondary weapon type).
  • Bishōnen: He could pretty easily pass for a short-haired, brown-skinned woman.
  • Meaningful Name: Claude is a French derivation of Claudius, the name of the famous historical Roman emperor, fitting a nobleman who leads his men into battle. His last name Regan also means "little king."
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: His status as nobility doesn't stop him from fighting alongside an army.
  • The Von Trope Family: Von Regan.
