Ingrid is the daughter of Count Galatea and a childhood friend of Dimitri, Felix, and Sylvain. She was previously betrothed to Glenn, Felix's elder brother, but Glenn died in the Tragedy of Duscur. In 1180, she enrolled in the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery and joined the Blue Lions, studying and fighting alongside them.
After the timeskip, if Ingrid is a member of Byleth's class, she returns to Garreg Mach on the day of the millennium festival and accompanies them throughout the war. If not recruited on the Verdant Wind route, she reunites with Dimitri and fights alongside him in the Battle at Gronder, where she can be circumvented or slain at the player's discretion. If not recruited on the Crimson Flower route, she is one of the defenders of Arianrhod alongside Rodrigue, Cornelia, Gwendal, and a non-recruited Felix, and is slain in battle. Ingrid makes no appearances in the story on the Silver Snow route, but it is most likely she is one of the many casualties of the Battle at Gronder.
Ingrid is a starting playable character for the Blue Lions route, a recruitable unit on the Black Eagles and Golden Deer routes and a recurring enemy should she not be poached during Part I.

Ingrid is a speed-oriented jack-of-all-trades. Ingrid has the second highest speed growth in the game, first barring DLC characters, and lacks a weakness in any particular weapon proficiency. Accordingly, Ingrid's base stats are balanced, with no outstanding stat in any particular area. Nevertheless, Ingrid still has early game options to contribute. At base, Ingrid has the most powerful early game combat art in Tempest Lance bolstering her middling strength base. Moreover, training Ingrid to a D-rank in Bows to get Curved Shot to chip at enemies from a safe distance is also an option to compensate for her middling base stats. Upon reaching level 10, Ingrid can promote into a Pegasus Knight which with its inherent Avoid +10 combined with Ingrid's high speed makes her respectably dodgy and grants her enough speed to resist getting doubled by essentially all enemy units in Part I on maddening. Ingrid also has access to Hit and Run upon achieving a C+ rank in lances which grants her +20 to avoid when initiating combat, giving Ingrid a safe option to chip and dip. Ingrid also has a fairly high charm growth, which in combination with her personal skill of Lady Knight, makes Ingrid reliable at locking enemies down with gambits. Ingrid does have one glaring weakness in her subaverage strength growth. While Ingrid can consistently double in part I, with Darting Blow if playing maddening, her strength growth will hamper her offensive output and leaves her unable to deal much damage to high defense enemies. That being said, Ingrid has options to mitigate this weakness. For instance, putting Ingrid down a more strength-focused class promotion path will raise her strength to be more or less on par with her physically-oriented classmates. Furthermore, upon achieving an A-rank in lances and swords she gets the magical combat arts of Frozen Lance and Hexblade. This in addition to having the highest magical growth of the Blue Lions when compared to the physically oriented units, at least gives Ingrid a viable offensive option against such units. As will become apparent later on, for every weakness Ingrid has, there is a solution she can run to compensate.
Ingrid also has a minor Crest of Daphnel which grants her a 40% chance to raise might by five when using a combat art. Like most crest effects, the effect is generally beneficial, though it is far from reliable and cannot be relied on to proc. Ingrid's crest also grants her access to Luin's exclusive combat art of Burning Quake. This combat art is an excellent offensive option for Ingrid as in addition to granting eight might, the art's damage output scales with her high speed stat, granting Ingrid a strong offensive option after clearing her paralogue. Since Ingrid has a crest she can also use any of the other Heroes' Relics without the ten HP damage penalty per round of combat, allowing her to use other powerful equipment like the Lance of Ruin, Blutgang, and Thyrsus without depleting her own HP and putting herself at risk.
Due to more or less equivalent bases and equivalent growths in strength and magic and a fantastic spell list, Ingrid can become essentially any class, whether it be physical or magic-oriented, and perform well. In order to capitalize on Ingrid's high speed and make her into a dodge tank in the late game, make Ingrid a Soldier, then Pegasus Knight, then Falcon Knight. While it is unfortunate that there is no class between the Pegasus and Falcon Knight classes, Ingrid can still perform well since the Pegasus Knight is still a great class. Moreover, you could perform side promotions during this time to get Ingrid some valuable mastery skills—i.e. the Brigand's Death Blow and the Cavalier's Desperation—or patch up any lacking stats by raising them to the bases of advanced classes; For example, a side promotion to the Paladin class is beneficial during this time as it raises her strength to a base seventeen and is easily achievable since she should already be training in lances and has a strength in riding. To patch up Ingrid's low strength early on and boost her offenses for the late game, it is best to train Ingrid in axes to become a Fighter, then Brigand, followed by Wyvern Rider then Wyvern Lord. On this path, Ingrid will end up slightly slower than she would as a Falcon Knight, though the Wyvern Lord's high strength is fair compensation, especially on lower difficulties where it is far easier to consistently double enemies. If you wish to capitalize on Ingrid's impressive array of spells, in particular the elusive and incredibly helpful 3-range Thoron, make Ingrid a Monk, then Mage—master the class for Fiendish Blow—followed by a Warlock then a Dark Knight. If you have purchased the DLC, the Dark Flier class is a viable alternative to Warlock and Dark Knight since it has Black Tomefaire and allows Ingrid to be a dodge tank while maintaining the ability to cast Thoron and Physic. If you have no confidence in Ingrid's ability to become an offensive powerhouse, you can send Ingrid on a faith-oriented path by making Ingrid a Bishop to improve her healing ability with Physic.
When recruited outside of the Blue Lions, Ingrid comes with training in swords and lances and automatically promotes into a Pegasus Knight. Due to her requirements being very reasonable at a D in flying—the equivalent of five faculty training sessions—and 15 dexterity, Ingrid is among the easiest of the students to recruit, especially if you aim to promote Byleth into a flying class. Despite this ease of recruitment, Ingrid is a unit who benefits from out-of-house recruitment later on in Part I as she gets the boon of a better strength growth and can end up significantly stronger than she would in the Blue Lions; However, a late recruitment can prove to be a double-edged sword as Ingrid does not automatically gain rank in authority, meaning that with a base E-rank, Ingrid cannot equip any flying battalion when recruited and must be reclassed to equip one. Moreover, she does not gain flying rank automatically, meaning she will likely require attention in instruction sessions to get to a flying master class or to attain any class not focused on swords or lances. When recruited in Part I, Ingrid unlocks a paralogue which gives the player access to the relic lance Luin, which, while not as powerful as the Lance of Ruin, is still powerful nonetheless having a higher might than the Silver Lance and a higher hit rate than both. Considering the ease of her recruitment, recruiting Ingrid solely to obtain Luin for a unit with Swift Strikes is well worth the effort.
Ingrid was first made available to be summoned by players on July 8, 2020 in a special summer variation as part of the summoning event surrounding the launch of the Overseas Memories update. The aforementioned summer variation of Ingrid is the only one currently available in Heroes, based on her Three Houses Part I incarnation. Ingrid is one of a rare number of characters to have been made available only as a special variation without a normal variation of them available (no files at all exist in the game for their regular versions).

Personality and character
Ingrid wants to become a knight, and is described as already possessing a serious nature and knightly air, even Dimitri describes her as "more knightly than most knights.". However, her dreams are hampered by possesing a crest. Due to being the only heir of House Galatea tha posseses a crest, Ingrid's father desperately wants her to marry in order to preserve the house's future, sending her letters constantly reminding her of his wishes. While she is exasperated by his insistence and wants to be rid of the burden in pursuit of her own dreams, she is nonetheless grateful to her father who took care of her at his own personal expense, giving her anything she wanted and needed while depriving himself of even the modest basics of living and meals. Despite his insistance, Ingrid's father is shown to cancel any marriage prospects if they could harm Ingrid in any way.
One of Ingrid's fiancé's was Glenn. As she admired Glenn as a knight and harbored romantic feelings for him, his death in Duscur deeply affected her, making her even hold a deep grudge against the people of Duscur. She however does get over her dislike of Duscur after learning about how kind and loyal Dedue is to Dimitri. Glenn is still a sore subject to her, even getting angry at Dimitri and Felix for not appreciating his sacrifice enough.
Ingrid is childhood friends with Sylvain, Felix and Dimitri, however her loyalty to Byleth is far greater than to her friends, family and country.
- Main article: Ingrid/Supports
Ingrid, Stalwart Knight (Silver Snow, Crimson Flower, Verdant Wind)
When Galatea territory was seized, Ingrid argued strongly for the preservation of its borders. Her request was granted, and she was appointed to rule. From her new position, she gave her all to ensure that the people of Galatea lived peaceful lives and put in years of hard work to reform its farming practices. Her efforts bore fruit, to the people's delight, and Galatea became a land of plenty.
Ingrid, Stalwart Knight & Raphael, Beast of Leicester
When Galatea territory was seized, Ingrid argued strongly for the preservation of its borders. Her request was granted, and she was appointed to rule. Soon after, Raphael traveled there to pledge his service to Ingrid. He initially signed on as a knight, but quickly discovered that his services were even more desperately needed by the land's farmers, and instead focused his efforts on helping Galatea improve its agriculture. Seeing him work side by side with the commonfolk, Ingrid became enamored with Raphael's character, and eventually asked for his hand in marriage. They held a modest but lively wedding, and the people happily gave their blessing to the union.
Byleth, Wings of the Hegemon & Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
When the war at last came to an end, Byleth and his wife, Ingrid, relocated to her hometown. Galatea territory had been seized by the Empire, but the emperor granted Ingrid's request to retain governance of it. She and her husband were initially received with skepticism, but together they worked hard to reform the territory and address its food shortages. Through hard work, pure grit, and a truly knightly dedication to the people, they were able to transform the barren landscape into what would, decades later, become known as the most fertile grounds in all of Fódlan.
Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
Ingrid declined to rule House Galatea, choosing instead to serve House Blaiddyd as a knight. After achieving widespread renown, she formed an elite order of pegasus knights who served as personal bodyguards to the nobility. She never took a husband.
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.
Felix, The Shield's Successor & Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
After the war, Felix inherited the title of Duke Fraldarius from his late father Rodrigue. He married Ingrid, the daughter of Count Galatea, and the couple spared no expense in restoring both their territories, paying special attention to Galatea's desperate need for food and funds. Some years later, there was an attack on the castle town, and the duke lost the use of his sword arm from an injury sustained protecting his wife. It's said that he never regretted it, as he was only fulfilling a promise that he made to his beloved wife a long time ago.
Ashe, Arrow of Justice & Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
When the new king was crowned in Faerghus, both Ashe and Ingrid left their homes to travel to Fhirdiad and pledge themselves to the royal family as knights. They each swore to defend the king, come what may, no matter the cost, and to that end they fought side by side in many battles together. They were both praised for their endless devotion and boundless courage, and their names went down in history as peerless knights. Many tales were told of their valor, and how they became indispensable to each other over the years. A handful of those stories went so far as to suggest that they fell in love and became husband and wife, but this may have been an embellishment.
Ingrid, Stalwt Knight & Ignatz, Worldly Artist
Ingrid declined to rule House Galatea, choosing instead to serve House Blaiddyd as a knight. Some years later, she was reunited by chance with Ignatz, who had persuaded his family that he should become a painter and traveled all through Fódlan painting beautiful landscapes. Ignatz decided to paint Ingrid that day, and spent much of the rest of his career working to get her likeness just right. There were many depictions of her bravery in battle, of course, but later generations would most fondly remember the way he captured her smile, which was widely believed to be that of a loving wife.
Ingrid, Stalwart Knight & Seteth, Ally of the Archbishop
Ingrid declined to rule House Galatea, choosing instead to serve House Blaiddyd as a knight. As Faerghus worked with the Chuch of Seiros to advance policy, Ingrid served as an envoy between the two. In this capacity, she met routinely with Seteth, whose complete trust in Ingrid resulted in fruitful negotiations. Together, Faergus and the church coordinated extensive relief efforts to return prosperity to Fódlan. After they had accomplished what they set out to do, it is said that Ingrid and Seteth settled down together in a small village, where they spent their days in peace, farming and fishing.
