Duke Ludwig von Aegir[2] (pronounced /ˈaɪɚ/[key]; Japanese: エーギル公 Duke Aegir) is a non-playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a Prime Minister of the Adrestian Empire and the father of Ferdinand.

Biography

Duke Aegir is the head of House Aegir of the Adrestian Empire. In Imperial Year 1171, he and the other imperial noble houses started the Insurrection of the Seven in an attempt to seize power from Emperor Ionius IX after the latter suppressed the rebellion of House Hrym, during which Lord Arundel took Edelgard and fled to Faerghus. After their return in Imperial Year 1174, Duke Aegir collaborated with Arundel and ordered the capture and experimentation of Ionius's scions in an attempt to infuse them with crests and create a perfect emperor he could control. During this period, he also took control of the Hrym territory and imposed heavy taxes upon its people.

In White Clouds, Duke Aegir is put under house arrest by Edelgard once she assumes the imperial throne during a secret visit with her father in Enbarr. Should Byleth be leading the Black Eagles, Edelgard can invite them to the ceremony in which Duke Aegir happens to stumble upon by chance, before he is promptly dismissed and incarcerated by Edelgard on the spot.

In non-Crimson Flower routes, House Aegir is stripped of all its titles after Edelgard declares war on the Church of Seiros, and Lord Arundel takes control of the Hrym territory and imposes even heavier taxes and conscription practices upon it, all in the name of the Prime Minister. Duke Aegir eventually escapes his imprisonment and makes his way into Hrym territory, where he is ultimately intercepted and killed by ruffians.

In the Crimson Flower route, Duke Aegir remains imprisoned while his son Ferdinand fights alongside the Black Eagle Strike Force and seeks to acquire his father's title by merit once the war's over.
