Three Houses

Baron Ochs is a non-playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is the current head of House Ochs in Adrestia and the father of Monica.


Baron Ochs is the current head of House Ochs in the Adrestian Empire. In Imperial Year 1175, the Dagda and Brigid War occurred, in which his house was attacked by the combined forces of Dagda and Brigid, going missing alongside his daughter, Monica von Ochs, in the process. In 1180, he reappears one day in Enbarr trying to escape with the Hero's Relic Vajra-Mushti he stole from Balthus, with the intention of selling it in the black market to some people claiming to be holding her daughter hostage, promising they'll give her back in exchange for the relic. Byleth, Balthus and Hapi confront Baron Ochs and swiftly defeat him, only for the latter to succumb to the relic's power and turn into a Forlorn Beast. Byleth and co. are then forced to slay him.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Baron Ochs is the boss of the DLC paralogue Black Market Scheme.

Baron Ochs: There's no time! Please, you must allow me to pass!

Baron Ochs: Don't come any closer! If you do, I will have no choice but to unleash this power upon you!
