Jeralt Reus Eisner[3] (pronounced /'d͡ʒɛɹəlt 'aɪznɚ/[key]; Japanese: ジェラルト Jeralt) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He was once a legendary knight of Seiros,[4] but is now captain of a mercenary troop and the father of Byleth.


Jeralt Eisner was originally a soldier of the Kingdom of Faerghus fighting alongside the Knights of Seiros, who were escorting Rhea. Jeralt was mortally wounded protecting Rhea from an attack, but Rhea saved his life by giving him a transfusion of her Crest-bearing blood. The transfusion granted him the Crest of Seiros and a significantly enhanced lifespan. Afterwards, Jeralt accepted a post as a Knight of Seiros, eventually rising to the rank of captain. During this period, an unnamed squire of his was killed by a plague, and Jeralt chose a monastery orphan named Alois to become his new squire due to his physical resemblance to the old squire. Eventually, Jeralt met and married Sitri and she became pregnant with a child. However, his wife died in childbirth, and Rhea claimed she was forced to sacrifice his wife to save the child. The newborn, Byleth, never cried or laughed and had no heartbeat, leading Jeralt to believe Rhea did something to them, although he never found out exactly what she did in his lifetime. Now deeply fearing Rhea, Jeralt took advantage of a fire to fake Byleth's death and flee the monastery. Jeralt spent the next 20 years wandering Fódlan as a mercenary and raising Byleth. During this period, he also encountered a villager from Leicester named Leonie Pinelli and took her as an apprentice.

Shortly before a mission to Faerghus, Jeralt and his mercenaries are approached by the nobles Edelgard von Hresvelg, Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd, and Claude von Riegan, who enlist his aid in driving off a group of bandits who attacked them. Afterwards, Alois discovers him and browbeats him into returning to Garreg Mach Monastery. He reunites with Rhea and reluctantly agrees to rejoin the Knights of Seiros in an advisory capacity. Over the next eight months, Jeralt goes on missions for the Knights of Seiros while Byleth accepts a post as a teacher at the Officers Academy at the monastery. Jeralt directly accompanies Byleth on a mission to Remire Village and aids them in subduing the villagers, who have been driven homicidally insane by the dark bishop Solon. Afterwards, he and Byleth are confronted by the Flame Emperor, a masked individual who has been launching attacks on the Church; the Flame Emperor denies involvement in the Remire massacre, but Jeralt does not believe them and unsuccessfully attempts to arrest them. The following month, Jeralt and Byleth are forced to slay several students who have been transformed into Demonic Beasts. In the aftermath, the assassin Kronya, disguised as a student named Monica von Ochs, stabs and mortally wounds him. Byleth attempts to use Divine Pulse to save him, but is sabotaged by Kronya and Solon's master Thales, and Jeralt dies in their arms.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Jeralt serves as an NPC ally for three battles in Part I. From Chapters 3 to 8, he can also tutor Byleth in lances, riding, and authority.

  1. "Alois: We spoke before about how Jeralt never seemed to age, right? Once, when he was drunk, he let the secret slip. He said he'd had an infusion of Crest-bearing blood, and it had greatly extended his life.
    Byleth: Crests can make people live longer?
    Alois: Well, we'd both been drinking. I figured he was joking, so I laughed it off. Then I asked him his age. He said he'd stopped counting after he hit one hundred. And he was telling the truth! In those 20 years he was away, he didn't age a bit.
