Byleth, Wandering Flame (Silver Snow, single ending)
Byleth, Wandering Flame & Sothis (Silver Snow)
Byleth defeated those who slither in the dark and put down the crazed Immaculate One. In the aftermath of the loss of Fódlan's great leading figures, <he/she> ascended the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan. In <his/her> heart lived the indelible hope that their efforts would one day yield an era in which the people knew true peace and the horrors of war were a hazy memory of the past.

Byleth, Ruler of Dawn (Verdant Wind, single ending)
Byleth, Ruler of Dawn & Sothis (Verdant Wind)
Together, Byleth and Claude sent the Fell King Nemesis, a foe from a bygone age, back to the flames of eternity from whence he came. Afterward, Claude left Fódlan, leaving Byleth to ascend the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan. As he took his schemes and dreams and efforts to a far-off land, he hoped dearly that their joint efforts would one day allow for a world where all of humanity can coexist in peace and harmony, regardless of borders or bloodlines.

Byleth, Ruler of Dawn & Claude, King of Unification
After ascending the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth sought to rebuild the war-torn towns and villages and to help guide the reformation of the Church of Seiros. After a few months of peace, remnants of the Imperial army joined with those who slither in the dark and marched upon the capital city of Derdriu. The new kingdom lacked the power to repel the invaders, but when defeat seemed imminent, a battle cry rang out from the east. Claude, the newly-crowned King of Almyra, led a mighty army that broke through the rebel forces with ease. This show of solidarity forever altered the course of history, heralding a new age of unity.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Ferdinand, Noblest of Nobles
After ascending to the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced her marriage to Ferdinand, who had assumed his inherited position as Duke Aegir. Ferdinand overcame a slew of obstacles to reform his territory and that of House Hrym. He chose not to accept an official position in service to Byleth, instead advising her only informally as a spouse. History books extol Ferdinand's success as a lord of his territories, but make no mention of his marriage. Thus, half of his life's work is lost to time.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar
After ascending to the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced <his/her> marriage to Linhardt. The people of Fódlan placed high expectations on their leader's spouse, but to their consternation, Linhardt spent most of his time fishing, relaxing, and researching Crests. Fortunes turned when Byleth discovered a document, hidden away on Linhardt's desk, which provided a ground-breaking discovery. Cast unwittingly into prominence, Linhardt was put to work in earnest. In return for his service, he demanded longer naps in the company of his spouse.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Caspar, Roaming Instigator
After ascending to the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced her marriage to Caspar. But Caspar, never one to sit still for long, set out on a journey of self-discovery. He traveled to every corner of Fódlan and even took Byleth along on occasion. It is said that he got into mischief at every turn, and that his wife sometimes had to invoke her authority to defuse the situation, but that the victims of his antics always came away more amused than harmed or offended in the end. The stories of their travels were remembered fondly for generations.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Bernadetta, Eternal Loner
After ascending to the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced his marriage to Bernadetta. Many were concerned that the new leader of House Varley would do little more than hide, but she in fact followed the new king wherever he went and provided him with constant counsel. She never did overcome her shyness, however, and it is said that the aspiring advisers who frightened her were quickly turned away. Because the ones she liked performed well in their service to the people, Bernadetta was widely believed to have a discerning eye.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Dorothea, Devoted Heart
After ascending the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced <his/her> marriage to Dorothea. The former songstress resolved to stay out of the public eye, keeping to herself and her family, but as Byleth worked tirelessly to restore Fódlan, she did offer advice from time to time. It is said that her experience growing up as a commoner provided a useful perspective. Many years later, her diary was uncovered, revealing the full extent of the happy life the couple shared. The love poems that they wrote to one another were published as a collection.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Petra, Seafaring Princess

Together, the two worked hard to restore Fódlan and improve relations with Brigid. The foreign royal was initially met with skepticism, but in time, the people of Fódlan accepted and adored Petra. Thanks to their efforts, in the distant future, the two lands were eventually as one.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Felix, Meandering Blade
Byleth married Felix almost immediately after ascending the throne of the United Kingdom of Fódlan. When it came to matters of governance, Felix often took on duties that would have required his wife to dirty her hands and thus came to be called The Royal Sword. After they accomplished all they had set out to do, the couple left the rule of Fódlan to the next generation, disappearing into obscurity with blades in hand. Thereafter, history only provides unconfirmed reports of a pair of traveling mercenaries who possessed unmatched strength and skill.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Ashe, Arrow of Justice
When Byleth ascended the throne of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Ashe served the new leader faithfully—first as a knight aide, and later as a husband. The queen, with help from the Church of Seiros, put much toward the rebuilding effort with particular attention paid to relief for orphans in the form of food, beds, and even schooling.

Because his policies were of particular benefit to the commonfolk, he was well loved, and came to be called the Lord of Roses.

When the rebuilding effort was complete, the couple and their children enjoyed long and peaceful lives.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Marianne, Survivor of the Curse

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Leonie, The Blade Breaker II

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Hanneman, Father of Crestology
Byleth announced her marriage to Hanneman shortly after becoming leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan.

Byleth (Male), Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Yuri, Underground Lord
As the new leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth worked tirelessly to reform and rebuild in the aftermath of a devastating war.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Hapi, Freed Spirit
After ascending to the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced his marriage to Hapi.

As leaders of church and state respectively, at times they engaged in heated debate.
