— Edelgard

Edelgard von Hresvelg (pronounced /⁠ˈeɪdəlɡɑɹd vɑn ˈhɹɛsvɛlɡ⁠/[key]; Japanese: エーデルガルト=フォン=フレスベルグ Edelgard von Hresvelg) is one of the three main characters, alongside Dimitri and Claude,[2] appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is the heiress apparent to the Adrestian Empire and the leader of the Black Eagles house at the Officers Academy. During the events of Part I, Edelgard disguises herself as the Flame Emperor (Japanese: 炎帝 Flame Emperor), an entity working against the Church of Seiros.

Biography

Edelgard was born the ninth child of Emperor Ionius IX of the Adrestian Empire. In Imperial Year 1171, Edelgard was taken to Faerghus by her uncle, Lord Arundel, and she quickly befriended her maternal stepbrother Dimitri. When she returned to the Empire in 1174, he gave her a dagger as a parting gift. At some point in her childhood, she and all ten of her siblings were imprisoned by a conspiracy of nobles including Arundel, Duke Aegir, and Lord von Vestra, with Ionius IX helpless to stop them. The siblings were subjected to horrific experimentation in order to implant them with the Crest of Flames, and ultimately Edelgard was the sole survivor and successful test subject. Developing a hatred of the Crest system that had dominated Fódlan for a millennium, Edelgard swore to destroy the Crests and the Church of Seiros which upheld their power by any means necessary and unite Fódlan under the Adrestian banner to create world peace.

In Imperial Year 1180, Edelgard enrolled at the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery along with several of her friends and people from her kingdom. In order to facilitate her campaign against the Church, she took up the disguise of the Flame Emperor, a masked individual conducting terrorist operations against the Church, and made a reluctant alliance with a group known only as "those who slither in the dark". Her identity as the Flame Emperor was known only by a select few, including an Adrestian general known only as the Death Knight and her loyal vassal Hubert. She hired a group of bandits led by Kostas to assassinate Dimitri and Claude, heirs apparent of Faerghus and Leicester, in order to make her eventual conquest of Fódlan easier. However, this was thwarted by the mercenaries Byleth and Jeralt, and Byleth took up a teaching position at the Academy. Their choice of which house to lead would have far-reaching consequences for all of Fódlan.

In all routes, Edelgard spends the next year studying at the Officers Academy along with the Black Eagles and orchestrating attacks on the Church as the Flame Emperor. Eventually, she convinces Ionius IX to abdicate and assumes the Adrestian throne. After being unmasked as the Flame Emperor in the Holy Tomb, Edelgard formally declares war on the Church. She launches a full-scale invasion of Garreg Mach Monastery, and the monastery is overrun and Byleth goes missing. In all routes other than Crimson Flower, Edelgard and "those who slither in the dark" spend the next five years battling Faerghus and Leicester. With the aid of Cornelia, a member of "those who slither in the dark", Edelgard is able to bring western Faerghus under her control.

Black Eagles

If Byleth chooses to lead the Black Eagles, Edelgard and her classmates become their pupils. Edelgard accompanies Byleth directly throughout their time teaching at the Officers Academy and occasionally acts against her own interests as the Flame Emperor, either to protect her cover or to oppose the more extreme actions of her "allies". As the school year progresses, Edelgard becomes attached to Byleth and hopes to sway them to her way of thinking. Eventually, Edelgard is unmasked as the Flame Emperor in the Holy Tomb, and Byleth is forced to make an ultimate choice regarding their loyalties.

Silver Snow

If Byleth chooses to remain with the church, Edelgard accepts that they have now become an obstacle to her ambitions. Five years after the fall of Garreg Mach, she returns to the monastery and reunites with Byleth. She asks them to return to the Empire, but they refuse, prompting her to draw the Sword of Seiros and clash with them. Declaring that one of them will meet their end, she bids Byleth farewell. Afterwards, Byleth forms a resistance army to defeat Edelgard and rescue Rhea. A few months later, she engages both the remnants of the Kingdom army and the Alliance forces at Gronder Field and sustains heavy injuries, though it is reported she successfully killed Dimitri and drove Claude into exile. She retreats to Enbarr, and the resistance army pursues her all the way to the Imperial palace and defeats her in battle. She begs Byleth to be the one to finish her off and formally bring an end to the war, a request they grant. Should Dedue survive during his mission in the Imperial Palace, he destroys her corpse afterwards as a final act of spite and vengeance for Dimitri before departing to parts unknown.

Crimson Flower

If Byleth chooses to desert the Church to remain with Edelgard, she and Hubert are extremely grateful. Edelgard organizes her former classmates into an elite task force known as the Black Eagle Strike Force. After the Battle of Garreg Mach, Archbishop Rhea takes refuge in Fhirdiad and Edelgard spends the next five years locked in a bitter stalemate with the Kingdom and the Alliance. Eventually, Byleth returns, and with their aid Edelgard is swiftly able to conquer Leicester and either kill Claude or force him into exile. After beating back an attempt by the Church to retake Garreg Mach, Edelgard begins military operations against Faerghus in earnest. She first conquers Arianrhod, a fortress on the western border between Adrestia and Faerghus. Afterwards, she begins a direct march for Fhirdiad. Dimitri and Rhea move to intercept her at the Tailtean Plains, but Rhea is driven off and Dimitri is slain in battle. The group finally arrives in Fhirdiad, and Rhea orders the city burned to the ground in order to slow them down and transforms into her ultimate form, the Immaculate One. Edelgard, Byleth, and the Black Eagle Strike Force engage her in a climactic final battle. Ultimately, the Empire emerges victorious and Rhea is slain. With all of Fódlan under Adrestia's dominion, Edelgard finally begins the reforms she always wanted to bring to the nobility and the Crest system and begins a silent war against "those who slither in the dark" now that they have outlived their usefulness to her.

Azure Moon

If Byleth chooses to lead the Blue Lions, Byleth returns to Dimitri's side and tips the scale of the war decisively in the Kingdom's favor. Edelgard personally leads an elite detachment to battle Dimitri and Claude at Gronder Field, but is defeated and driven off. After Dimitri recovers from the mental trauma he suffered during his five-year exile, he offers to parley with Edelgard. Accompanied by Hubert and Byleth, the two have a heartfelt conversation about the future of Fódlan, but ultimately conclude that their views of the world cannot coexist and they must settle their differences in battle. Edelgard returns to the Imperial palace in Enbarr. While Hubert stalls for time and is ultimately slain, Edelgard uses the power of her twin Crests to transform into a Demonic Beast of extreme power. In this form, she faces Dimitri in a climactic final battle, but is defeated and returned to human form. Dimitri makes one last attempt to reconcile with her, but Edelgard attacks him with the dagger he once gifted her. Dimitri stabs her in the heart with Areadbhar, killing her instantly.

Verdant Wind

If Byleth chooses to lead the Golden Deer, Edelgard is encountered at Gronder Field and engages both the remnants of the Kingdom army and the Alliance forces; Leicester emerges victorious, and Dimitri is slain by retreating Imperial troops. She retreats to Enbarr, and Claude and Byleth pursue her all the way to the Imperial palace and defeat her in battle. She begs Byleth to be the one to finish her off and formally bring an end to the war, a request they grant. Should Dedue survive during his mission in the Imperial Palace, he destroys her corpse afterwards as a final act of spite and vengeance for Dimitri before departing for parts unknown.

Analysis

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

Edelgard is a top-tier unit. She has excellent growth in strength, ranking second in the game and first among the Black Eagles, as well as speed, magic, and dexterity. Her high base strength and access to Smash allow her to deal massive damage early on and throughout the game. Edelgard's personal skill Imperial Lineage increases her EXP growth by 20%, ensuring she remains a dominant force in your army. Because her high strength reduces her weapons' weight, Edelgard's AS is often enough to avoid enemy double attacks. Due to her high charm, Edelgard can also reliably hit and dodge enemy gambits, making her useful in both offensive and defensive situations. Due to her magical combat arts Hexblade and Lightning Axe, Edelgard can deal massive damage to enemies with high defense. You'll need Edelgard's combat skills even if you're going the Silver Snow route.

Edelgard has two Crests, the first a minor Crest of Seiros, and the second a major Crest of Flames, unlocked by viewing her C+ Support. The Crest of Seiros increases Edelgard's might by five when using a combat art. The effect is usually beneficial when it occurs, but it is not reliable and should not be relied upon. The true benefit of Edelgard's Seiros Crest is that it unlocks Aymr's exclusive combat art of Raging Storm, the game's best combat art. The attack gives Edelgard the ability to move again if it lands, in addition to dealing bonus damage to dragons and having fourteen extra might. Unlike previous iterations of this effect, Edelgard can keep using Raging Storm and reaping the benefits until Aymr breaks, giving her a total of five extra actions per map and a maximum of six actions per turn. With Raging Storm, Edelgard can solo all maps in Crimson Flower in one turn, including the final boss Rhea. Unfortunately, Aymr has a repair cost of three Agarthium, which is only obtained by inflicting armor break on Giant Crawlers in random skirmishes and the Titanus in Chapter 16. Aymr also has a low base accuracy, which can be fixed by giving Edelgard the Archer class for Hit +20.  The Crest of Flames has a 20% chance to restore HP relative to normal weapon attacks and combat arts. The healing effect of the Crest of Flames, combined with its rarer effect of cancelling counterattacks, allow Edelgard to stay on the front lines longer without constant healing. Although Edelgard's Crest of Flames does not allow her to use the Sword of the Creator or its associated combat arts, it is still one of the best Crests in the game.

Edelgard stands out among the game's units because she can excel in nearly any class thanks to her good strength and magic growth; however, one promotion path stands out above the rest. The easiest path is Fighter to Brigand, then Warrior, then keep Edelgard in her unique classes of Armored Lord and Emperor. Her personal classes are essentially better versions of the Fortress Knight class, with lower speed penalties, increased defense, and five movement instead of four. They lack the Fortress Knight's innate Weight -5, but the Fortress Knight's harsh speed penalties negate the benefit. Not having a class modifier bonus to her attack stat is a major flaw of these classes, as is the movement of five, which is too low for an axe class. To improve enemy phase tanking as an Emperor, use defensive battalions like Supreme Armored Co. and get a B rank in authority to unlock Defensive Tactics. Edelgard also has a unique spell list containing Luna Λ and Hades Ω, making the idea of turning Edelgard into a Warlock appealing on the surface, but there are many disadvantages to this path. First, Edelgard's Black Magic Crit +10 budding talent only affects half of her spells, Fire and Bolganone, which have no inherent crit bonus; second, Dark Tomefaire is out of reach until part two, limiting her damage potential with her best spells; third, she lacks three-range spells without the Caduceus Staff or Thyrsus, and she also lacks Physic; lastly, tying down one of the player's best combat units with 4 movement until a Dark Knight or Gremory promotion is a great hindrance. One could also train Edelgard in Swords to become a Myrmidon, then a Mercenary or Lord, then a Swordmaster or a Pegasus Knight to learn Darting Blow. The best promotion path for Edelgard comprises the Wyvern-mounted classes of Wyvern Rider and Wyvern Lord. The Wyvern Lord's superior offense, unparalleled mobility of flying classes, access to Canto, high class modifiers to strength, speed, and defense, Axefaire and Raging Storm render Edelgard utterly broken, making the Wyvern Lord her best promotion option.

Personality

Edelgard comes off as a refined, cold and sometimes hostile woman at first glance.[3] Due to the horrific experimentation she endured as a child in order to implant a second Crest into her body,[4] Edelgard despises Crests and is willing to go to any lengths to remove their influence in Fódlan,[5] including triggering a world war and cooperating reluctantly with the people responsible for her experiments; she has limits regarding what she is willing to tolerate from them however, in particular when it concerns malicious acts which serve no practical purpose in the long term, and swears to Byleth and Jeralt that she would have stopped Solon's actions in Remire Village had she known the extent of his plans.[6]

Due to her access to an exclusive version of the War of Heroes passed on by Wilhelm I to the Hresvelg family line for generations, Edelgard's opinion on the Children of the Goddess is quite negative, believing they are monsters in human guise whose only interests lie in keeping Fódlan under their control. Likewise, her stance towards the Church of Seiros is also cynical, convinced the institution abuses weak and lost souls seeking for salvation, turning them into nothing more than puppets to a goddess who will never answer their pleas; despite this however, on Crimson Flower, her opinion doesn't stop her from adopting a more tolerant stance and refraining from persecuting the faithful as she does in the other routes, and in her supports with Manuela, she admits the institution has done some good for Fódlan as well, even if she's far too biased to not feel contempt towards it.

Edelgard is completely devoted to her cause of leading Fódlan to a better future, and accepts the possibility of driving away, fighting, and sacrificing whoever and whatever she deems necessary in order to accomplish her goals, including her own friends and ideals should she end up cornered; on Crimson Flower however, Edelgard begins showing hesitance towards doing so, as she orders those closest to her to not throw their lives away if it can be avoided. Edelgard is aware that her more questionable acts are morally reprehensible, yet in spite of this, she keeps pressing on, fully convinced that her methods are the best and quickest way to change Fódlan. She also has major trust issues due to the betrayal of her uncle, preventing her from seeking help and support in others outside of Hubert and her own troops, which in non-Crimson Flower routes ultimately leads to her demise.

Edelgard also has a somewhat childish side; her supports with Byleth show her fantasizing about taking a day off to gorge herself on sweets or complaining about Hubert's nagging about work, she often does mocking vocal impressions of people who are irritating her, and she likes toys as gifts. She is also deadly afraid of the sea as she can't swim, which she confesses to Bernadetta.[7] She also has a phobia against rats, which was caused by her time below the Imperial Palace where she was experimented on. In spite of seeking to forcefully impose a new world order and social system in Fódlan, Edelgard does care about the wellbeing of her subjects; one of her goals in starting her war is to prevent the circumstances that led her to cause a world war from being repeated in the future, and she also doesn't desire her people to live in a way which makes them unhappy, which could explain her more tolerant stance on religion in her route as mentioned previously.

Endings

Edelgard, Flame Emperor (single ending)
As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard dedicated her life to reshaping the delicate political structure of Fódlan. With tireless work and great sacrifice, she reformed the class system to ensure a free and independent society for all. In her later years, she entrusted her life's work to a worthy successor before finally vanishing from the public eye.

Byleth, Wings of the Hegemon & Edelgard, Flame Emperor
Byleth and Edelgard ended the tyranny of a godlike being. Byleth was wounded and lost the power of the progenitor god, but it mattered not, as <he/she> and Edelgard had each other. To ensure lasting peace, the two fought against those who slither in the dark, and to ensure a society where people can rise and fall by their own merits, they spent their lives reforming the antiquated class system. They achieved much in their time together, and it is said that they were sometimes spotted leaving the palace to privately enjoy the world they had created. How they spent those precious moments, none but the two of them will ever know.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Hubert, Emperor's Confidant
As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard gave all she had to breathe new life into the government of Fódlan. With tireless work, great sacrifice, and her devoted servant Hubert by her side, she instituted new class reforms and helped to ensure the people's independence. Hubert was always close at hand, ready to dispose of unsavory burdens by any means necessary. In their later years, they passed the fruits of her labor on to Edelgard's successor and vanished from the public eye. Though it is said they spent the rest of their lives together, it is unlikely they ever gave voice to the true depth of their affections.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Ferdinand, Noblest of Nobles
As the Adrestian emperor, Edelgard appointed Ferdinand as her prime minister, and the two devoted themselves to ruling Fódlan. Their sharply contrasting views made for frequent and lively debate, but with each enhancing the perspective of the other, Fódlan was better for it. As they worked tirelessly to create a better future, they were soon bound together by marriage as well. Their children, born to those who had torn down the old social hierarchy, were encouraged to choose their own paths.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar
As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard gave all she had to breathe new life into the government of Fódlan. With tireless work and great sacrifice, she instituted new class reforms to ensure that people could rise on their own merits. During those years, however, there was a period of time in which she simply disappeared. It is said that she went to the research facility of the foremost authority in Crests, Linhardt, who had relinquished his rank and title to live a life of study. There, after confirming the results of Linhardt's experiments, Edelgard was able to enjoy a rare break from her busy life. The respite was brief, but they cherished that time for the rest of their lives.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Caspar, Hotheaded General
Edelgard, the new Adrestian emperor, appointed Caspar as her Minister of Military Affairs, and the two devoted themselves to ruling Fódlan. Caspar quickly developed a reputation for recklessness in his duty, but he compensated for it with successes in the field and was given leeway by the emperor as a result. Privately, the couple's relationship as husband and wife was more tempestuous. Their spats were frequent, but it is said that Edelgard took pleasure in her ability to influence Caspar, and Caspar enjoyed reining the emperor in from time to time. It was a strange but happy union.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Bernadetta, Eternal Loner
When Bernadetta inherited House Varley from her father, she tried to withdraw from politics and remain within the bounds of her territory, but Edelgard, the new Adrestian emperor, would not allow it. Instead, she demanded that Bernadetta counsel her in governing Fódlan. It is said that the emperor made this choice to keep herself from being too detached, and that Bernadetta was all too happy to provide a more emotional perspective now and again. The people of Enbarr could always tell when the two were meeting by the sound of Bernadetta's panicked voice ringing out from the palace.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Dorothea, Mystical Songstress
As Edelgard's reign as the Adrestian emperor began, Enbarr was restored, and with it, a certain opera house. Soon the Mittelfrank Opera Company put together a war drama depicting the journey and sacrifice of the emperor and her companions, and the starring role went to none other than Dorothea. Edelgard initially forbade the company from staging it, but was eventually persuaded by Dorothea's passionate performance to rescind that decree. It is said that the emperor always set aside time to enjoy the opera thereafter.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Lysithea, Scholar of Misfortune
After the war, Edelgard and Lysithea threw themselves into the fight against those who slither in the dark. The struggle was long and arduous, but not without its benefits. With careful analysis of ancient techniques, they discovered ways to recover the years of life that had been stolen from them. Afterwards, the new Adrestian emperor and Lysithea, her trusted officer, devoted the rest of their lives to Fódlan's rule. For her counsel in instituting class reforms and ensuring the independence of the people, Lysithea came to be known as the Wisdom of the Empire. The pair of talented women ushered Fódlan into a new age of innovation and prosperity.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Hanneman, Father of Crestology
As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard gave all she had to breathe new life into the government of Fódlan. To that end, Hanneman's research proved invaluable. Seeking to determine the nature of Crests, and to do away with the inequality caused by them, the Father of Crestology produced magical tools that could be used even without the aid of Crests. These were put to eager use by Edelgard, who saw both of their dreams realized. It is not hard to imagine that a pair with such similar ideologies and plans for the future would eventually settle into an affectionate and fulfilling relationship.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Manuela, Divine Songstress
As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard gave all she had to breathe new life into the government of Fódlan. Her first objective was to institute new class reforms and ensure the people's independence. For that reason, she sought the counsel of Manuela, whose vast array of contacts, talents, and experience proved invaluable. She became essential to Edelgard, and her skill as a physician kept the emperor in good health for many years. Both remained unmarried, and it is said that the two became extremely close over the years.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Constance, Scion of Nuvelle
For her service in the war and her innovations in magic, Constance von Nuvelle was among the first to receive peerage from Emperor Edelgard. Though her noble house was given no guarantee of power on a hereditary basis, Constance made certain that House Nuvelle would be relied upon in helping to achieve Edelgard's vision of a new social order. The emperor kept Constance close at hand and routinely recognized her counsel as valuable, which helped to bolster Constance's own sense of worth. It is rumored that the two were also dear personal friends and that they would frequently slip away from duties of governance to traipse through the capital together.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Edelgard appears as two spirits, one as her Part I incarnation and the other as her Part II. Edelgard is an Advanced attack-type spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, using her Part I artwork from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. When equipped to a player character, she grants one support spirit slot.

WarioWare: Get It Together!

Edelgard appears in the microgame, Fire Emblem: Three Houses at level 3. Like Dimitri at level 2, the player must choose clearly-written text in order to pass. Unlike it, however, the wrong answers all use letters that resemble those from the correct answer's, and selecting those will result in Edelgard herself not understanding what the player is saying, thus failing the microgame.

Edelgard is the leader of the Black Eagle House, home to students from the Adrestian Empire at the Officers Academy in the continent of Fódlan. She’s the only heir to the empire’s throne, and she’s got a dignified and confident bearing that puts other princes and princesses to shame! *sigh* You can trust me on that one. Edelgard studies history and the art of kingcraft with a passion, and it seems like she has some kind of goal or ambition that drives her. She also has a cool, methodical personality, so whatever her plan is, she’ll make sure she sees it through step-by-step. Once she’s finished studying with the Black Eagles, I wonder what kind of future she’ll make for herself?

Trivia

  • Cristina Vee voiced Edelgard in the English version of Three Houses's E3 2018 trailer, but does not voice Edelgard in the final game.[8][9]
  • If paralogues are discounted, Edelgard is tied with the Death Knight for the most appearances as an enemy in a single main-series game, with 6 on the Azure Moon and Verdant Wind routes of Three Houses; she is fought in chapters 1, 7, 11, 12, 17, and either 22 (on Azure Moon) or 20 (on Verdant Wind).
  • Disregarding enemy-only abilities, Edelgard bears the Seal Strength and Seal Magic abilities as an enemy despite being unable to obtain them as a playable unit.
  • Thanks to her Crest of Seiros, Edelgard is the only playable character who can receive additional healing from the Seiros Shield without New Game+; however, it cannot be obtained in Crimson Flower, the only route where Edelgard is fully available.
  • Edelgard is the only lord in Three Houses who can have a romantic S-Support with both male and female Byleth.
