Save your breath. There were countless people like you in the capital. People who spat, threw things—insults and stones alike—whenever they pleased. Their anger was natural. I do not begrudge them.
— Dedue to Ingrid

Dedue Molinaro (pronounced /dɛ'du/[key]; Japanese: ドゥドゥー=モリナロ Dodoo Molinaro) is a playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a member of the Blue Lions house at the Officers Academy.


Dedue was born an ordinary commoner from the nation of Duscur. After the Tragedy of Duscur, where King Lambert of Faerghus was assassinated during peace talks with Duscur, Kingdom forces invaded and genocided Duscur in retribution for his death. Dedue was personally rescued from lynching by Lambert's son Dimitri, became one of the few survivors of the massacre, and developed an intense personal loyalty to the young prince. In 1180, Dedue and Dimitri enrolled in the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery and became members of the Blue Lions house. Throughout 1180, he studies and fights alongside the Blue Lions. When Edelgard declares war on the Church of Seiros, he fights on the Church's side, but is defeated. Afterwards, he and Dimitri return to Faerghus.

On the Silver Snow and Verdant Wind routes, Dedue continues to follow Dimitri as he raises an army under the Blaiddyd banner. He fights in the Battle at Gronder on Faerghus' side along with his Blue Lions comrades sans Ashe and Annette, but the Kingdom is defeated and Dimitri is slain. A distraught and enraged Dedue swears to kill Edelgard and avenge Dimitri. He makes his way to Enbarr and delivers intelligence to Byleth and their forces about the layout of the Imperial palace, then indirectly cooperates with Resistance/Alliance forces in the final battle with Edelgard. If he survives the final battle, he destroys Edelgard's corpse before disappearing for parts unknown.

On the Azure Moon route, court mage Cornelia frames Dimitri for the murder of the regent, Rufus; Dedue sacrifices himself to help Dimitri escape, and is presumed dead in the aftermath. If Byleth helped peacefully subdue a Duscur rebellion, his Duscur brethren rescue him, and he spends the next five years recuperating from his injuries. Dedue rejoins the Kingdom army at the Great Bridge of Myrddin and fights alongside Dimitri and Byleth for the rest of the war.

On the Crimson Flower route, Dedue remains by Dimitri's side throughout the war with the Empire. He faces Byleth directly at the Tailtean Plains, and distributes Crest Stones stored in the Fhirdiad castle vaults to both himself and several volunteers to transform into Demonic Beasts in a desperate attempt to slow down the Imperial advance. His efforts prove in vain, and he is defeated and killed; if he was defeated before having the chance to transform, he dies peacefully together with Dimitri.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Dedue is a playable character exclusive to the Azure Moon route. He is also a recurrent enemy on the other three routes, and becomes an NPC ally for one chapter on Silver Snow and Verdant Wind.

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Dedue is a very straightforward and reliable unit, serving as the dedicated tank of his group. He boasts the highest Defense base, growth, and cap, is tied for the best HP base (with Raphael, Gilbert, and Jeritza), and has the second best HP growth and cap (behind Raphael on both counts). He also has boons in axes, lances, brawling, and heavy armor. His personal skill, Staunch Shield, grants him an additional +4 Defense if he waits on a turn, further reinforcing his ability to tank. His high defense can serve as an excellent way to safely absorb hits from fast enemies, such as Swordmasters, Assassins, Grapplers, and Falcon Knights, especially on Maddening. With the right battalion, such as the Duscur Heavy Soldiers, his excellent physical bulk will be improved even further. For all his advantageous strengths, he does come with some weaknesses as well. His speed growth is very low, meaning he will get doubled frequently throughout the game. His bases and growths in magic and resistance are also low, forcing him into physical classes while also making him vulnerable to magic attacks, which is not helped by his aforementioned low speed. In regards to Combat arts, if trained in brawling, Dedue will learn One-Two Punch, which will guarantee him a follow-up attack. Further training him in brawling will grant him Healing Focus, allowing him to heal his injuries for free, rendering healing items such as vulneraries obsolete. While his lance combat art, Vengeance may sound nice on paper, granting increased might when his health is low, it generally isn't practical to use, since Dedue is very bulky to physical blows, while magical blows are likely to bring him down in one or two hits.

A huge disadvantage that will become apparent later on in the game is that by the start of Part II, he will vanish from the player's party due to storyline events; if his paralogue was not completed, he will die permanently. Otherwise, if his paralogue was completed, then he will return in Chapter 16. Even if he does return alive and well, he will have missed out on four chapters worth of instructions and may require some attention and investment to bring him back on par with your other units.

Some ideal promotion pathways for Dedue can vary depending on which role you want him to excel at. After starting off his promotion line as a Fighter, there are different promotion paths that you can choose: his most obvious promotion pathway is one that favors tanking physical hits, which means promoting him to an Armored Knight, master the class for Armored Blow, then promote to a Fortress Knight. If you want to build Dedue as a hard-hitting powerhouse, you can promote him into a Brigand or Brawler, then to a Warrior or Grappler. As a general rule of thumb for most physical units, regardless of what final class you intend to pursue, a promotion to a Brigand to acquire Death Blow is recommended for a boost in strength when attacking on player phase. If you want to give Dedue more mobility and Canto, you could try to push him towards the Wyvern Rider and Wyvern Lord path, though it will restrict him to using only flying battalions and adjutants; furthermore, his weakness in flying will make it more difficult and time consuming to acquire the class certification, which is not helped by his four chapter absence in Part II. Promoting Dedue into a Great Knight can also grant him extra mobility while retaining the high defense of armored units, though he also has the same bane in riding. One of Dedue's best final classes is the War Master class, made easily attainable with his boons in axes and brawling. If mastered, he will gain Quick Riposte, effectively patching up his speed issues by guaranteeing his ability to double on the enemy phase while preventing the enemy from doing so, provided his health is above 50%.

Personality and character

This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.

Dedue owes Dimitri a life debt, and will protect him at any costs. Despite coming off as stern and stoic, he is actually calm and gentle. He is resigned to the widespread prejudice against people of Duscur, and often discourages people from associating with him in order to protect them from being caught in the crossfire. The events of the Crimson Flower route bring out a more ruthless side of him; he goes behind Dimitri's back to distribute Crest Stones to Faerghus soldiers in order to protect Dimitri and the Kingdom, and even uses one himself.


Main article: Dedue/Supports


Dedue, Taciturn Devotee (single ending)
As a loyal vassal, Dedue dedicated his life to supporting King Dimitri through his entire reign. After tending to his liege on his deathbed, Dedue resumed his post at Dimitri's grave on the edge of Fhirdiad. There, it is said he stood sentinel over the peaceful realm he had helped build until the end of his days.

Byleth, Guardian of Order & Dedue, Taciturn Devotee
A year after Byleth was appointed to succeed Rhea as the new archbishop, she announced her marriage to Dedue, who had resigned his position as the king's vassal. Their wedding ceremony, brightly colored with all of the most beautiful flowers from Duscur, set the tone for their happy life together. Dedue served as an intermediary between Faerghus and the church and—alongside the archbishop—committed to improve relations with foreign nations as part of the rebuilding effort. In their later years, they retired to the Duscur Peninsula where they spent the remainder of their lives gardening in peace and quiet.

Dimitri, Savior King & Dedue, Taciturn Devotee
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus, and his loyal vassal, Dedue, remained ever at his side. Among Dimitri's achievements was the reconciliation with Duscur: an extraordinary effort that required extensive negotiations to get past a history of betrayal and oppression. It was a trying task, but Dimitri never once considered giving up. While they behaved as lord and vassal in public, it is said that Dimitri and Dedue were more like family in private. When Dimitri finally fell to illness, Dedue tended to his liege's deathbed, and then took up a post at his grave for the rest of his days. When the time came, they were buried beside each other.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Ashe, Arrow of Justice
Though the innocence of the Duscur people was proven, prejudice against them still lingered in the Kingdom capital. For this reason, Ashe refused a knighthood when it was offered to him, and chose instead to open an inn that specialized in Duscur cuisine. Dedue began to frequent the place on breaks from his duty as the king's vassal, and over time, imparted to Ashe his culinary wisdom. As the inn gained popularity, the people of the Kingdom began finally to see the Duscur people in a positive light. This led to a reconciliation between the two cultures that came rather more quickly than expected.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Mercedes, Benevolent Soul
Two years after the war, Dedue and his wife, Mercedes, opened a school in the Duscur residential district in Fhirdiad. The school educated Duscur children, who had never been given structured learning before, in reading, writing, arithmetic, and even Duscur history. Many years later, when the Duscur people reclaimed their homeland, the people who attended this school were able to resettle there and revive their old culture. Because of this, Dedue and Mercedes were forever renowned by the Duscur.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
Some time after the war, Dedue and Annette exchanged wedding vows in a modest ceremony and then settled down to a life in Fhirdiad. For them, life after marriage stayed much the same as before. Dedue continued his duty to King Dimitri, and Annette took up a teaching position at Fhirdiad's school of sorcery. Though each gave the other space for the work that was important to them, they made sure to spend much of their free time together, and to bond over the cooking and housework.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
After the war, Dedue and Ingrid both served as protectors to the newly crowned King Dimitri: the former as his loyal vassal, and the latter as a knight sworn to House Blaiddyd. The pair fought side by side on countless occasions, and were known to be inseparable on the battlefield. Tales of the taciturn vassal and the steadfast lady knight were told by bards all throughout Fódlan, and it is said that their friendship helped spark the reconciliation between the peoples of Faerghus and Duscur.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Flayn, Slumbering Princess
After the war, Dedue returned to Fhirdiad to support King Dimitri's reign as his vassal. As he worked, his wife, Flayn, was determined to support him with home-cooked meals. Dedue patiently endured the more disastrous of his wife's experiments, while teaching her everything he knew. Eventually Flayn's talent blossomed and she became a renowned chef. It is said that those who were lucky enough to taste her cooking always asked for more, and that Dedue's eyes lit up with affection and pride when she told him what she was planning to prepare next.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Shamir, Distant Archer
After the war, Dedue returned to Fhirdiad to support King Dimitri's reign as his vassal. Shamir was ever near, and as Dedue's trusted partner and a mercenary for the royal family, she complemented his public-facing work with by handling any necessary covert operations. The trusting professional relationship between the two blossomed into love, and soon they were married. It is said that, when absolutely no one else was around, they would let down their guard and engage in secret jokes and idle chatter.
