Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd (pronounced /dɪ'mitɹi ɑlɛɡ'zɑndɹə 'bleɪθɪd/[key]; Japanese: ディミトリ=アレクサンドル=ブレーダッド Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd) is one of the three main characters, alongside Edelgard and Claude,[2] appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is the prince of the Kingdom of Faerghus and the leader of the Blue Lions house at the Officers Academy.


Dimitri is the crown prince of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. In Imperial Year 1171, Dimitri's maternal stepsister Princess Edelgard of the Adrestian Empire came to Faerghus with her uncle, Lord Arundel, and the two became fast friends. When she returned to the Empire in 1174, he gave her a dagger as a parting gift. In 1176, he was the sole survivor of the Tragedy of Duscur, in which his father King Lambert and many of his knights and friends were murdered, allegedly by assassins from the Duscur region. This incident permanently warped the young prince, leaving him with a deep-seated grudge against the perpetrators and a hidden capacity for extreme violence, although he always suspected that the people of Duscur had been scapegoated. In the aftermath of the Tragedy, he saved a young Duscur commoner named Dedue from being lynched, leading him to develop an extremely strong sense of loyalty towards Dimitri.

In 1180, Dimitri enrolled at the Officer's Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery along with several of his friends and people from his kingdom. Around this time, a mercenary named Byleth rescued him from bandits hired by a mysterious masked individual calling themself the Flame Emperor. Byleth was rewarded with a teaching post at the Officer's Academy, and their choice of which house to lead would have far-reaching consequences for all of Fódlan.

In all routes, Dimitri spends the next year studying at the Officer's Academy along with the Blue Lions. Eventually, the Flame Emperor is unmasked as Edelgard, and she assumes the Adrestian throne and declares war on the Church of Seiros in order to destroy the Crest system she believes is stagnating the world. Edelgard launches a full-scale invasion of Garreg Mach Monastery and Dimitri fights alongside the Church, but the monastery is overrun and Byleth goes missing. In all routes other than the Crimson Flower route, after the fall of Garreg Mach, Rhea vanishes and Dimitri returns to Faerghus. However, the mage Cornelia frames him for the murder of his regent and uncle Rufus, and he only escapes when Dedue sacrifices himself and is presumably executed in his stead. Believing all of his friends and family dead, Dimitri spends the next five years living as a vagrant in the Garreg Mach region and mercilessly slaughtering Imperial soldiers and bandits, and his mental state continues to deteriorate until he becomes completely obsessed with revenge on Edelgard.

Crimson Flower

If Byleth chooses to lead the Black Eagles and remains loyal to Edelgard after she is revealed to be the Flame Emperor, Dimitri returns to Faerghus after the fall of Garreg Mach and formally takes the throne as king. He provides Rhea and the remaining Knights of Seiros asylum as they do battle with Edelgard and the Empire over the next five years. Eventually, Byleth returns and decisively tips the scale of the war in favor of the Empire. Dimitri personally intercepts Edelgard and her elite soldiers at the Tailtean Plains, but he is defeated in battle and dies blaming Edelgard for the Tragedy of Duscur.

Silver Snow

Azure Moon

If Byleth chooses to lead the Blue Lions, Dimitri and his classmates become their pupils. Dimitri accompanies Byleth directly throughout their time teaching at the Officer's Academy. As the school year progresses, Dimitri's hidden rage begins to surface, and he comes to hold the belief that the Flame Emperor orchestrated the Tragedy of Duscur. Eventually, when Edelgard is revealed to be the Flame Emperor, the revelation of her actions coupled with his continued belief that she caused the Tragedy of Duscur cause Dimitri to suffer a total psychotic breakdown, and he vows to kill Edelgard with his own two hands.

Five years after the fall of Garreg Mach, Byleth returns the day before the millennium festival and reunites with Dimitri and the rest of the former Blue Lions. The two begin a full-scale war against Adrestia, using Garreg Mach Monastery as a base of operations. After killing an Adrestian general named Randolph tasked with retaking the monastery, Dimitri receives allies and the Heroes' Relic Areadbhar from Duke Rodrigue Fraldarius and launches a counterinvasion of the Empire, unconcerned about the people of Faerghus suffering under Imperial tyranny. At Gronder Field, he engages both the Empire and the Leicester Alliance in a three-way battle and emerges victorious, but Randolph's younger sister Fleche attempts to assassinate him in revenge for Randolph's death. Rodrigue sacrifices himself to save Dimitri, causing him to realize what a horrible ruler and person he has been and resolve to atone for his sins.

Dimitri returns to the Kingdom capital of Fhirdiad and kills Cornelia, who implicates his stepmother Patricia in the Tragedy of Duscur before perishing. With the Kingdom back under his control, Dimitri reinforces battered Leicester forces and kills Lord Arundel. In the aftermath, Alliance leader Claude unexpectedly gifts him his Relic bow Failnaught, disbands the Alliance, cedes the right to govern its subjects to Dimitri, reveals that Rhea is being held prisoner in the Imperial capital of Enbarr, and departs from Fódlan. With the combined forces of Faerghus and the former Alliance at his back, Dimitri launches a proper invasion of the Empire. As his forces approach Enbarr, Dimitri attempts to parley with Edelgard and learn her motivations for starting a world war, but the two conclude that their ideas of justice cannot be resolved diplomatically and they must fight for the future of Fódlan. Dimitri besieges Enbarr and defeats Edelgard in a climactic final battle. Afterwards, he makes one final attempt to reconcile with her, but she throws his old dagger into his shoulder, forcing him to execute her. In the aftermath, Rhea is rescued and retires from her role as Archbishop, and Byleth succeeds her. Dimitri is crowned the ruler of a united Fódlan under Faerghus' banner.

Verdant Wind

If Byleth chooses to lead the Golden Deer, Dimitri eventually regroups with the former Blue Lions and raises an army under his banner. He makes his way to Gronder Field and attacks both Imperial and Alliance forces, but is defeated by Claude. Dimitri attempts to pursue the retreating Edelgard, but is cornered and unceremoniously executed by Imperial soldiers.

Personality and character

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

On the surface, Dimitri is a chivalrous young man who is loyal to his friends and kind to his subjects. Underneath, though, he holds great bitterness over the Tragedy of Duscur four years prior his attendance to the Officers Academy, which led to the deaths of his parents and many of his soldiers. The trauma over that incident has left Dimitri with a burning desire for vengeance and a deeply hidden capacity for extreme hatred, violence, and self-loathing that he actively tries to keep suppressed. The revelation of his beloved and trusted stepsister Edelgard's actions as the Flame Emperor and her subsequent betrayal and declaration of war against the Church of Seiros start to tear away at his kind heart, and the presumed deaths of Byleth and Dedue and the five years he spends as a vagrant on all routes other than Crimson Flower reduce him to an antisocial, vengeful madman bent on killing Edelgard as painfully as possible without any regard for his own safety or responsibilities as king. In the Azure Moon route, the return of Byleth and Dedue and the death of Rodrigue snap him out of his hatred and cause him to decide to let go of his past and atone for his sins, returning him to the chivalrous man he was in his school days. In the Crimson Flower route, while he still hates Edelgard, her less unscrupulous actions during the war allow him to retain his sanity. He remains loyal to the Church, and is willing to put his life on the line for Archbishop Rhea.


Main article: Dimitri/Supports

Dimitri cannot grow his supports from Chapters 13 through 17 due to being consumed by his hatred of Edelgard.


Dimitri, Savior King
After his coronation, Dimitri spent his life reforming and ruling justly over Fódlan. He focused particularly on improving living situations for orphans and improving foreign relations. He was known for listening intently to the voices of all, and for instituting a new form of government in which the people were free to be active participants. He lived for his people and alongside them, and was thusly dubbed the Savior King.

Dimitri, Savior King & Byleth, Guardian of Order
Paired with the end of the war, the joyous marriage of Byleth, the newly-appointed archbishop, and Dimitri, the newly-crowned king of Faerghus, gave the people of Fódlan much to celebrate. The two were devoted to improving life for the people and to seeking greater wisdom in order to reform the government and the church from the inside out. As leaders of church and state respectively, at times they engaged in heated debate. Even still, when enjoying a long horse ride or a quiet evening, they were not as the world saw them, but rather two adoring spouses, desperately in love. They remained as such for the rest of their days.

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.

Dimitri, Savior King & Felix, The Shield's Successor
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spend his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side every step of the way was his right-hand adviser, Duke Felix Fraldarius. Their lifelong bond grew so strong over time that, when Dimitri finally passed, it is said that Felix's grief was more potent even than the queen's. The stories of their lives were passed down to future generations as chivalric tales that rivaled those of Loog, the King of Lions, and his sworn friend, Kyphon.

Dimitri, Savior King & Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side every step of the way was Ingrid, who left House Galatea to serve House Blaiddyd as a knight. As they worked together to restore the Kingdom, the pair fell in love and were eventually married. But while Ingrid was happy to play the role of queen, and to support her husband in public and in private, she insisted on taking up a weapon and serving on the front lines in battle.

Dimitri, Savior King & Catherine, Free Knight
Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. Two years after his coronation, he announced his marriage to Catherine. The people speculated wildly about how this union came to be. Some said that Dimitri spent two full years wooing her, while others suggested that the matter was resolved by a duel. In any case, the couple worked tirelessly to reform the Kingdom, but despite their busy days, it is said that they always found time for sparring, and that the clash of steel could be heart throughout the castle at all hours.

You're a tough opponent, but I refuse to yield. Do not fool yourself into believing I will hold back!
— Dimitri as an enemy in Chapter 1.
Edelgard: Dimitri... It's time! We can finally settle the question of who's stronger.
Dimitri: Very well. I accept your challenge. With you as my opponent, I won't hold anything back.
Edelgard: I would expect no less!

— Dimitri fighting Edelgard in Chapter 1.
Claude: Psst, Your Princeliness. You've got a thing for Edelgard, right? Come on, fess up. You'll feel better.
Dimitri: Claude, please. This is no time for idle banter. Your defenses are wide open.
Claude: That didn't get to him, huh? What a shame. I'll find a better way to ruffle him up next time.

— Dimitri fighting Claude in Chapter 1.
Kostas: Spoiled little noble! Just die like a good little rich kid!
Dimitri: Unfortunately for you, I will not oblige. You will regret all that you have done.

— Dimitri fighting Kostas in Chapter 2.
Lonato: I apologize, Your Highness. It is regrettable that we should cross swords like this.
Dimitri: Lonato, I sympathize with your position. I really do. I have no wish to kill you, but I am afraid you have left me no choice. Please...forgive me.
Lonato: Your Highness... I cannot stop here. For my child, and for the people of Fódlan. If you will not stand aside, then I have no choice but to cut you down.

— Dimitri fighting Lonato in Chapter 3.
How far can I push myself with you as my foe... This will be a great chance to test our mettle. Do not underestimate me, Professor, or you will fail.
— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Byleth in Chapter 7.
Dimitri: So, it is time to cross blades... I never imagined such a day would come to pass.
Edelgard: If the Empire and the Kingdom go to war, we'll be able to fight as much as we please.
Dimitri: I am sorry, but that is not something to joke about. The thought of fighting you is troubling at best.
Edelgard: In that case, I wonder when you'll be able to stomach facing me in battle... Do you need a few moments?

— Dimitri fighting Edelgard in Chapter 7.
Claude: Hey, Your Royalness! If you promise to let me have the prize, I'll let you take the honor of victory. Do we have a deal?
Dimitri: Enough of your foolishness! I— Wait a moment. You are trying to anger me, is that it?
Claude: Saw right through me, did you? Well, if there's no deal, I'll just have to win this thing fair and square!
Dimitri: I will happily face you, here and now. Do not hold back, Claude!

— Dimitri, fighting Claude in Chapter 7.
Dimitri: Do not try to say you have forgotten... Do you know just how many people died in Duscur?

— Dimitri fighting the Flame Emperor in Chapter 11.
Dimitri: You're late. I... We are all tired of waiting. Now, let's separate that sick head from your neck, shall we?

You will not kill one more soul. You will not steal one more thing. I will not allow it. Here and now, I stand against you!
— Dimitri as an enemy in Crimson Flower Chapter 17.
Why did you choose Edelgard, Professor? Why did you choose to walk this savage, bloody path? I cannot shake this feeling of regret... Regret that I must kill you now.
— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Byleth in Crimson Flower Chapter 17
Dimitri: Must you continue to conquer? Continue to kill?
Edelgard: Must you continue to reconquer? Continue to kill in retaliation? I will not stop. There is nothing I would not sacrifice to cut a path to Fódlan's new dawn!
Dimitri: Enough of this madness! This future of yours is built on a foundation of corpses and tears!

— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Edelgard in Crimson Flower Chapter 17
Dimitri: You killed Rodrigue... your own father, Felix.
Felix: I said I'd cut down anyone who stood in my way. Even my father. Even my friends.
Dimitri: I see. That was all I needed to hear to finally work up the resolve to kill you.

— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Felix in Crimson Flower Chapter 17
Not only have you become the emperor's lap dog, but you have turned against your own people. From the depths of hell, you will regret tainting the land of Faerghus!
— Dimitri as an enemy fighting former members of the Blue Lions in Crimson Flower Chapter 17.
Randolph: A one-eyed demon... So, it's you. You're the one who's been going around killing the Imperial troops!
Dimitri: What is it to you?
Randolph: You bastard! Life is worthless to you, isn't it?!
Dimitri: Ha! You took the words from my mouth, general!

— Dimitri, fighting Randolph in Azure Moon Chapter 14.
Dimitri: The man praised as a lion is degraded to a mere traitor's underling.
Gwendal: A traitor's underling? That's upsetting, Your Highness. I am and always have been a knight of House Rowe.
Dimitri: How dare you? You are nothing but a lowly beast scavenging for scraps. You have forgotten the dignity of knighthood.
Gwendal: I may be lowly, but this beast is devoted to his master.
Dimitri: Ha! Then I had better kill the pet and deliver its head to that master...

— Dimitri, fighting Gwendal in Azure Moon Chapter 15.
You're not worth it. Get out of my sight.
— Dimitri, as a boss in Verdant Wind Chapter 17.
Are you trying to stop me too? Then I'll just have to kill you!
— Dimitri, as an enemy fighting Byleth in Verdant Wind Chapter 17.
Dimitri: Stab your chest, break your neck, crush your head... I will allow you to choose your own death.
Edelgard: I'm not interested in methods of dying. All that matters is when death takes place, not how. And I have no intention of dying today.
Dimitri: I'm sure all of the people you've slaughtered so far thought the same!

— Dimitri, fighting Edelgard in Azure Moon/Verdant Wind Chapter 17
Claude: Calm down, Dimitri! What does it achieve, us killing each other here?
Dimitri: Move, Claude. I have no time to exchange words with you.
Claude: It doesn't matter what I'm saying, does it? You aren't even listening. But I'm not gonna budge.

— Dimitri, fighting Claude in Azure Moon/Verdant Wind Chapter 17.
Cornelia: My, it's been a long time hasn't it, Your Highness? You've grown awfully strong.
Dimitri: How shameless. I bet it was you who killed my uncle and set me up. Am I right?
Cornelia: Hah! Too true! I'd already forgotten about all that loveliness.
Dimitri: I'll kill you, you monster! You will pay for all that you have done!

— Dimitri, fighting Cornelia in Azure Moon Chapter 18.
Felix: So, the old man's dead...
Dimitri: Yes.
Felix: I'll cut you down. Prepare yourself, you damn boar!
Dimitri: Very well. Come at me, Felix!

— Unused dialogue between Dimitri and an enemy Felix in Azure Moon Chapter 18.
Lord Arundel: You would raise a weapon against your uncle? You've grown into a savage of a man, just like your father.
Dimitri: You are rather calm for one in your position. Or did you forget that this is a battlefield? Perhaps this is no time for words, Uncle. There will [sic] time for that after we have settled things here.

— Dimitri, fighting Lord Arundel in Azure Moon Chapter 19.
Death Knight: You dare stand between me and my pleasure?
Dimitri: Yes. I dare stand against you, Death Knight.
Death Knight: Death is all that remains...

— Dimitri, fighting the Death Knight in Azure Moon Chapter 20.
Dimitri: Hubert. I would tell you to get out of my way, but I highly doubt you would abide.
Hubert: Heh. Your silver tongue will do you no good here. This is not your path to tread.
Dimitri: That is not your decision to make, nor is it mine. All I can do is blaze ahead!

— Dimitri, fighting Hubert in Azure Moon Chapter 21.
To be changed beyond all recognition... That is what lies at the end of the ideals you served so diligently. I have no pity for one such as you. If that is the future you hoped for, then you deserve no compassion.
— Dimitri fighting Hegemon Edelgard in Azure Moon Chapter 22
Duscur General: Now, this is a windfall... Who knew we'd meet our sworn enemy here!
Dimitri: Sworn enemy? Well, I cannot disagree.
Duscur General: We will slay you and topple Faerghus! That way, for the first time in ages...Duscur can be reborn!
Dimitri: Hmph.

— Dimitri fighting the Duscur General in War for the Weak.
Manuela: You've grown into a fine, handsome man, Dimitri. Bit of a shame you've also become a violent beast. Men like you make the Silver Maiden cry.
Dimitri: Oh? I suppose it is a shame, Professor Manuela. Perhaps I should have appeared before you holding a bouquet of flowers, rather than the weapon that will end your life.

— Dimitri, fighting Manuela in The Silver Maiden.

  • As the boss of Crimson Flower Chapter 17, Dimitri's map sprite depicts him with an eyepatch despite the fact that he does not lose the use of his right eye on the Crimson Flower route.
  • As a Lord in Part I, the eyes on Dimitri's sprite will change color to match those of his current affiliation—blue as a player unit, red as an enemy, yellow as a third army enemy. This quirk is not present for Edelgard or Claude, or even for Dimitri's Part II sprites.
