|“||My parents died when I was small, and I came to live in the monastery. It was an aimless existence. But sometimes, a knight would pass by, wearing magnificent armor. That knight was Jeralt. And the first time he laid his eyes on me, he made me his squire!||”|
— Alois to Byleth
Alois Rangeld (pronounced /ˌæloʊˈis ˈɹɑŋgɛld/[key]; Japanese: アロイス＝ランゲルト Alois Rangeld) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is both a teacher at the Officers Academy and a Knight of Seiros.
In Imperial year 1135, Alois was as born the second son of a merchant family. Under unknown circumstances, Alois was left an orphan and had to live in a monastery in the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. In 1146, Alois was discovered by Jeralt, one of the Knights of Seiros, who appointed Alois as his squire; Jeralt chose Alois due to Alois's resemblance to his previous squire, who had died of a plague. Because of this, Alois was determined to become one of the Knights of Seiros and achieve the same renown as him, which he achieved in 1159, the same year Jeralt suddenly disappeared. In 1180, Alois found Jeralt and their child Byleth near Remire Village, where they had just saved Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude from a bandit attack. Alois then recommended Byleth to Archbishop Rhea, who was then appointed as a professor at the Officers Academy.
If Alois was recruited during Part I, he returns to Garreg Mach Monastery on the day of the millennium festival and accompanies Byleth and their chosen faction throughout Part II. Should Alois not be recruited on the Crimson Flower route, he remains with the Church of Seiros, and later participates in the Church's surprise assault on an Adrestian-controlled Garreg Mach after the fall of Leicester; he fails to retake the monastery and is slain by the Black Eagle Strike Force.
Alois is a recruitable playable character on all routes and an enemy on Chapter 15 of the Crimson Flower route should he not be recruited in Chapter 11.

Alois fills the role of an unspectacular yet serviceable and low-investment mid-game pre-promote. He joins late in Part I with great strength, solid physical bulk and high weapon ranks in axes and brawling which grant him a good combat art in One-Two Punch, immediate access to the Brigand class for the popular Death Blow skill, and a very short road to the War Master class. Alois' Speed is fairly poor, but he can easily work around that by using One-Two Punch on player phase and mastering War Master for Quick Riposte on enemy phase. His flying bane is probably his worst attribute, as it makes it very difficult for him to reach the almighty Wyvern Lord class. In a nutshell, Alois is generally not powerful enough to replace a well-trained student, but if your current team is underleveled, stat-screwed, or dead, he can step up and do a good job.
Personality and character
This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.
Alois was once a subordinate of Jeralt, and thus respects him greatly. He is a cheerful and amiable man who enjoys telling jokes, even though nobody finds them funny.
- Main article: Alois/Supports
Alois, Sun of the Knights (single ending, Silver Snow, Azure Moon, Verdant Wind)
Once all the fighting had come to an end, Alois officially took up the position of captain of the Knights of Seiros. In this capacity, he was much beloved, and the Knights became more unified than ever under his command. It is said that their accomplishments during his tenure were beyond even what Jeralt's troop had achieved.
Alois, Family Man (single ending, Crimson Flower)
Once the long war against those who slither in the dark came to an end, Alois and his family moved to Remire Village and lived happily as farmers. It is said that from the moment he put down his sword and picked up a hoe, he never so much as thought about turning back.
Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Alois, Sun of the Knights (Silver Snow, Verdant Wind)
After the war, Byleth ascended the throne of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, and Alois retired from the Knights of Seiros to serve the former professor. Alois became the new leader's right hand, and his duties in that respect kept him busily engaged all over Fódlan, giving all he had to support <his/her> reign. Alois's cheerful character was beloved by his subordinates, who rallied behind him to create the most numerous order of knights in all Fódlan. It is said that Byleth relied on Alois as though he were <his/her> own father.
Byleth, Guardian of Order & Alois, Sun of the Knights (Azure Moon)
When Byleth took on the role of archbishop in Rhea's place, <he/she> reformed the order of the church little by little. Eventually this included the Knights of Seiros, and Alois was named captain and the archbishop's right hand. The captain's duties kept him busily engaged all over Fódlan. His cheerful character inspired those under his command, unifying the Knights of Seiros in a way they had never been before. The archbishop relied on Alois as if he were <his/her> father, and Alois in turn treated <him/her> like his child. It is said that Alois was so overcome with emotion on the archbishop's wedding day that his weeping could be heard through the applause.
Byleth, Wings of the Hegemon & Alois, Family Man (Crimson Flower)
When all of the fighting was over, Byleth embarked on another wandering journey as a mercenary. <He/She> traveled all over Fódlan, following <his/her> father's steps. When <he/she> at last drifted into Remire Village, <he/she> was reunited with Alois, who had moved there with his family and was now living on a farm. On Alois's advice, <he/she> decided to stay a while, and before <he/she> knew it, five years had passed. <He/She> fell in love with a kind <woman/man> in the village, and they had a modest wedding. It is said that Alois was so overcome with emotion on that day that his weeping could be heard from anywhere in the village.
Mercedes, Benevolent Soul & Alois, Sun of the Knights (not available on Crimson Flower)
Mercedes left home for a life as a cleric at Garreg Mach. Alois, as Jeralt's successor, officially assumed the role of captain of the Knights of Seiros. Though the two were quite busy with their daily activities, they would often find time to get together in the evenings so Alois could hear Mercedes's ghost stories. No one can say for certain whether it was the constant exposure to spooky tales or some other cause, but from that time on, Alois's reputation became that of a totally fearless fighter. Mercedes's quiet support was widely credited for this increase in bravery. Her blessing came to be known as a guarantee of victory.
Leonie, The Blade Breaker II & Alois, Sun of the Knights (Silver Snow, Azure Moon, Verdant Wind)
Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role, and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. No matter where she went, however, she was burdened with Jeralt's unpaid tavern tabs. Angry with Alois for pushing these debts upon her, she went to Garreg Mach to force him to pay half the debt. She encountered a smiling Alois, who had become captain of the Knights of Seiros, and who was all too happy in his new prosperity to take the debts back on. It is said that Leonie developed quite the drinking habit once she was free to visit taverns whenever she liked.
Leonie, The Blade Breaker II & Alois, Family Man (Crimson Flower)
Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role, and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. No matter where she went, however, she was burdened with Jeralt's unpaid tavern tabs. Angry with Alois for pushing these debts upon her, she went to see him with the intention of forcing him to pay half the debt. But when she arrived, she found a suntanned Alois happily lounging after a hard day's work on his family farm. Leonie found herself unable to go through with it. She did become a world-renowned mercenary, but she spent the whole of her career paying off debt.
Alois, Sun of the Knights & Catherine, Free Knight
Alois officially took up the title of captain of the Knights of Seiros. In this new role, he led the knights to many victories, and was much beloved. At the same time, he developed a reputation for gullibility, and his subordinates began to play tricks on him regularly. To help him deal with this, Catherine volunteered her services as an adviser. She kept a lookout for him, and put a stop to these antics before they began. The combination of the kindly captain and the intimidating wielder of Thunderbrand proved strong, and the Knights of Seiros prospered.

Alois: I won't either. I hope you're ready.

- "Alois: Ah! It all feels like ancient history now. You see, [Jeralt] was visiting the Kingdom of Faerghus. [...] His previous squire had died from a ghastly plague. Then one day, he came upon me and appointed me his new squire.
Leonie: At that age, you must have had some real talent and courage to stand out as a future knight!
Alois: Oh, no, it wasn't that. I was just an orphan boy living in the monastery. I was a timid little thing.
Leonie: Really? He didn't choose you for your bravery? What made him choose you, then?
Alois: My face looked like the dead boy's." — Alois and Leonie in their C support, Fire Emblem: Three Houses
