The Death Knight (Japanese: 死神騎士 Death God Knight) is a character appearing in Three Houses. The Death Knight is implied to be Jeritza, but this is never said outright. His true identity is Emile (pronounced /ɪ'mil/[key]; Japanese: エミール Emile), the half-brother of Mercedes.

Biography

The Death Knight was born Emile, heir to House Bartels of Adrestia. His mother was a commoner who married his father for financial security for her daughter Mercedes, but his father was only interested in her Crest and banished the two as soon as Emile was born. Texts that can be found in the library of Garreg Mach Monastery reveal that House Bartels was eventually massacred, with Emile suspected to be responsible. Eventually, Emile took up the identity of the Death Knight, a mysterious knight dressed like a grim reaper.

The Death Knight spends Part I aiding the Flame Emperor in their plan to destroy the Church of Seiros. He is first seen accompanying a raid on the Holy Mausoleum, but does not engage the students sent to stop them unless attacked first. The Death Knight develops a fixation on the students' teacher Byleth and directly challenges them after kidnapping Flayn for her blood, but is ordered to retreat by the Flame Emperor. He is next seen reinforcing Solon in the battle in Remire Village, but is again forced to retreat by Byleth. After the Flame Emperor is unmasked as Princess Edelgard von Hresvelg of Adrestia, the Death Knight fights in the Battle of Garreg Mach on Adrestia's side, potentially allying with Byleth to do so. Afterwards, the Death Knight takes up a post as an Adrestian general.

If Byleth is a member of the Black Eagles and sides with Adrestia over the Church, the Death Knight is only mentioned in passing in Part II and spends the route fighting on a different front from Byleth.

In any of the other three routes, if both Mercedes and Caspar are recruited, a paralogue can be played in which Mercedes deduces that his true identity is Emile, and he gives her her family Relic, the Rafail Gem, before threatening to kill Mercedes the next time they meet and departing. If Caspar defeats the Death Knight, the Death Knight will give him his Scythe of Sariel as a reward.

In Azure Moon, afterwards, regardless of whether this paralogue was completed, the Death Knight is assigned to defend Fort Merceus from the invading Faerghus army. He fails in this task and is killed in battle, dying in his half-sister's arms.

In Silver Snow and Verdant Wind, the Death Knight survives this encounter and instead warns the Resistance Army/Leicester army to leave the fortress, lest they be killed by incoming Agarthan missiles. He later defends Enbarr along with Hubert and is killed in this encounter.
