— Cyril, about Rhea

Cyril (pronounced /'siɹɪl/[key]; Japanese: ツィリル Cyril) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Biography

Cyril is a commoner born in Almyra. In Imperial Year 1170, Cyril lost his parents during a battle with Fódlan armies and ended up as an orphan, which forced him to grow and mature fairly quickly. In 1177, Cyril participated in one of Almyra's skirmishes in Fódlan's Throat and was captured, becoming one of the servants of House Goneril. In 1178, Archbishop Rhea found Cyril, recruited him as a servant at Garreg Mach Monastery, and provided him shelter, a situation Cyril appreciated, leading him to become loyal and experience gratefulness towards the Archbishop. During his time there, he became Shamir's apprentice.

While Cyril can be found in the monastery during Garland Moon, he officially introduces himself to Byleth alongside Shamir in the following month, just as Byleth's chosen class has been tasked with preparing the security for the upcoming Rite of Rebirth. When Princess Edelgard von Hresvelg of Adrestia declares war on the Church of Seiros, Cyril fights in the Battle of Garreg Mach on the Church's side, but is defeated.

On all routes other than Crimson Flower, Cyril returns to the monastery on the day of the millennium festival and accompanies Byleth throughout the war with the Empire. On the Crimson Flower route, Cyril is one of the commanders of the combined Kingdom/Church army in the final battle in Fhirdiad; he can be either circumvented or slain at the player's discretion.

Personality and character

Cyril is extremely grateful to Rhea for saving him from his life as a war orphan, and wants to be useful to her. He takes his duties at the monastery very seriously, to the point where he can come off as cold sometimes. He has a widely respected work ethic.

Endings

Cyril, Limitless Potential
Unable to serve Rhea any longer, Cyril nearly left the church. He was persuaded to stay, however, to assist in rebuilding the monastery he had helped maintain. Thanks to his devoted work ethic, the Officers Academy was able to reopen a few years later. When the new students took the reception hall, Cyril found himself among them.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Cyril, Limitless Potential (Silver Snow, Verdant Wind)
Byleth declared the founding of the United Kingdom of Fódlan at Garreg Mach and ascended the throne as its first leader. Cyril served as a chamberlain, supervising all general affairs. With the expansion of the kingdom, it was eventually decided that the queen would move to a new royal capital. Cyril wished to accompany her, but was ordered to enroll in the newly reopened Officers Academy. Though reluctant, he complied. A year later, after consistently demonstrating great wisdom and maturity, he won the queen's heart, and they announced their abrupt marriage. The move surprised many, but no one was as shocked as Cyril himself was pleased.

Petra, Queen of Brigid & Cyril, Limitless Potential (Silver Snow)
Petra returned to her homeland of Brigid, and inherited the throne from her grandfather. As ruler, she declared independence from Fódlan, and renegotiated Brigid's diplomatic ties on more equal terms. Some years later, the Church of Seiros expanded its reach to Nuvelle, a town in western Fódlan. The priest sent to this new church, for the purpose of keeping up relations with Brigid, was none other than Cyril. He and Petra met frequently, first for public reasons, and then for more private reasons. They fell in love, and were ultimately wed. It is said that their union served as a symbol for the friendly ties between the two contries for the whole of their lives.

Ashe, Arrow of Justice & Cyril, Limitless Potential (Azure Moon)
After the war, Ashe was formally knighted and appointed the new head of House Gaspard, which had no successors. The young and inexperienced lord faced a great deal of difficulty in governing, until his court was blessed with a new adviser in Cyril. Using skills he learned during his time as a student at the Officers Academy, Cyril offered Ashe the advice he needed to grow into a worthy lord. Over time, Ashe gained the respect of his people, and Gaspard territory prospered. The pair swore always to be there to help one another, and remained best friends for the whole of their lives.

Shamir, Distant Archer & Cyril, Limitless Potential
Shortly after the war, Shamir and Cyril disappeared from the ranks. The Knights of Serios searched unsuccessfully for them for some time, but finally resigned themselves to the loss. Though the pair was never officially heard from again, rumors swirled persistently for years of two master archers turned thieves. Initially the knights received complaints and investigated, but when it was discovered that the pair only lined their pockets by shaking down those who preyed upon the innocent, they decided it was no an investigation worth pursuing. The thieves' story became a folktale beloved by the people.

Trivia

Cyril's unused S-rank illustration.
  • In the game's data, there's an unused variation of Cyril's S-rank support illustration which despicts Byleth with darker hair. For plot related reasons, this is only possible in the Crimson Flower route, the only path where Cyril can't be recruited.
