I'd lived in that tiny village my whole life, so to me, Captain Jeralt was nothing short of a legend. So I went right up to him, and I told him I was going to be his apprentice. He didn't stick around long after that, but he did teach me a lot while he was with us. Tactics, strategy, training routines—it was all so new and exciting! So after he left, I kept at it. Kept training. Just like he taught me.
— Leonie

Leonie Pinelli (pronounced /li'oʊni pɪ'nɛli/[key]; Japanese: レオニー=ピネッリ Leonie Pinelli) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is a student at the Officers Academy and a member of the Golden Deer.


Leonie is a hunter's daughter from the village of Sauin within the Leicester Alliance. When she was a child, her village hired mercenaries to defend themselves. This was Jeralt's mercenary group. Leonie saw Jeralt as someone that defended those who couldn't defend themselves, and asked him to be his apprentice. He taught her a few things before leaving the village, with the promise that they would reunite. To become a mercenary and be like Jeralt, she borrowed money from her village and enrolled in the Officers Academy in 1180 at Garreg Mach Monastery and joined the Golden Deer, studying and fighting alongside them.

After the timeskip, if Leonie 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 Azure Moon route she remains with Claude and fights alongside him in the Battle at Gronder on Leicester's side, while on the Crimson Flower route she defends the Great Bridge of Myrddin alongside Acheron, Judith and a non-recruited Ignatz. In both circumstances, she can be circumvented or slain at the player's discretion. Leonie makes no appearances in the story on the Silver Snow route, but it is most likely she's one of the many casualties of the Battle at Gronder.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Leonie is a starting playable character for the Golden Deer route, a recruitable unit on the Black Eagles and Blue Lions routes and a recurring enemy should he not be poached during Part I.

Personality and character

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

Leonie was inspired to become a mercenary by Jeralt; she calls him her master and herself his top disciple. She is very proud of her role as Jeralt's only apprentice, and can get aggressive about it. She goes so far as to scorn Byleth for not being grateful enough for being Jeralt's child. Leonie values protecting those who can not protect themselves, and lives to do just that. She is very straight-forward, never sugar coating or beating around the bush. She's very proud of her origins as a commoner, as it has greatly contributed to her rough and sincere nature.


Main article: Leonie/Supports


Leonie, The Blade Breaker II
Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. She came to be known as Jeralt the Second, as she began to resemble him in all things—including his drinking habits. She left behind many unpaid tavern tabs.

Leonie, The Blade Breaker II & Claude, King of Unification
Leonie returned to Sauin Village to repay her debts and mysteriously vanished afterwards. Some years later, when trade between Fódlan and Almyra began in earnest, the village received notice that the Almyran king would be passing through on his way to Garreg Mach. The village rushed to prepare themselves. When the anticipated day arrived, they were shocked to find Leonie at the king's side. She had gone to visit Claude in Almyra, and had ended up staying to become his queen. Faced with the sight of Leonie in the resplendent clothing of a monarch, her father and the other villagers could do nothing but stand in mute amazement.

Leonie, The Blade Breaker II & Shamir, Distant Archer
Leonie assumed leadership of the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. One day, she was hired to protect a noble who had been warned of a bandit attack. The warning note listed all of the noble's foul deeds, and was signed with the image of a spider, which Leonie recognized. Just as she suspected, the one who came on the appointed day was none other than Shamir. Leonie was happy to break her contract on this occasion, and even offered Shamir a position in her company. The result was the most famous mercenary group ever to exist in Fódlan. It is said that their flag bore the image of a spider, and...another vaguely arachnid creature.

Ignatz, Worldly Artist & Leonie, The Blade Breaker II
Leonie took over the mercenary company formerly led by Jeralt. Though she earned a great deal of renown, the work began to dry up as the postwar chaos subsided. It was around that time she had a chance reunion with Ignatz, who had persuaded his family to allow him to wander the world as an artist. Remembering how they had once promised to travel together, Leonie disbanded her mercenary company and resolved to accompany him. The pair left Fódlan, searching for sights hitherto unseen. Where their journey took them remains unknown.

Raphael, Beast of Leicester & Leonie, The Blade Breaker II
Leonie took over the mercenary company formerly led by Jeralt. She ran out of money constantly, however, due to sending all of her earnings back to her village, and so developed a reputation for unpaid tavern tabs. When she came upon the inn that Raphael had been helping to run with his family, she was overjoyed to finally find a place that would trust her enough to open a new tab. In her years frequenting the establishment, she accrued such a massive debt to Raphael that the only way to pay him off was to work for him. By the time the debt was finally paid, she had moved in with him. They lived together happily for the rest of their days.

Felix, Meandering Sword & Leonie, The Blade Breaker II
After the war, Felix abandoned his noble title and chose to make a living with his sword. He accepted Leonie as his partner, and together they became wandering mercenaries. Their different fighting styles complemented one another well, and their combined skill was enough to handle any enemy. Some time later, the mercenary group formerly led by Jeralt joined them, and under their leadership, became the most feared company in Fódlan. After the post-war chaos passed, however, work became scarce, and the pair eventually became so desperate that they rebranded themselves as street performers. They proved surprisingly capable in their new profession.

Leonie, The Blade Breaker II & Alois, Sun of the Knights
Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role, and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. No matter where she went, however, she was burdened by Jeralt's unpaid tavern tabs. Angry with Alois for pushing these debts upon her, she went to Garreg Mach to force him to pay half the debt. She encountered a smiling Alois, who had become captain of the Knights of Seiros, and who was all too happy in his new prosperity to take the debts back on. It is said that Leonie developed quite the drinking habit once she was free to visit taverns whenever she liked.

Leonie, The Blade Breaker II & Seteth, Heir of Purpose / Ally of the Archbishop
While Seteth remained at the monastery after the war to restore the Church of Seiros, Leonie wandered the land in pursuit of her dream to become an elite mercenary. It seemed as if their paths would never cross again. Years later, after they had achieved their goals, both retired and disappeared from the public eye at the same time, as if it had been prearranged. Though no official records of their lives after that time exist, it is rumored that a happy couple resembling them was sighted in a small mountain village. The couple was known for their excellent fishing skills, and for cooking up their bountiful catches for all the local villagers and travelers.
