Analysis

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

Lorenz has a balanced stat-line and straddles the line between magic and physical affinity more closely than probably any other unit in the game. His Strength and Magic growths are both decent enough to work with once class modifiers take effect, and the same can be said for his other growths as well. Add in his respectable Charm growth and his gambit-boosting personal skill and Lorenz can be built in a variety of directions. However, he will rarely excel in any one area more than other units, with the exception of Authority.

As a Cavalier-Paladin, Lorenz will make use of his strengths in lances and riding and become a front-line fighter, while essentially giving up on his Speed stat. He should make very good use of the Frozen Lance Combat Art, which will enable him to deal magic damage based on his strong Dexterity stat (made stronger by class modifiers) to make up for his middling strength. Lorenz can also make use of the increased mobility to perform hit-and-run tactics with ranged weapons and gambits. His physical durability will be lower than the likes of Ferdinand and Sylvain, but his higher Resistance can make Lorenz a halfway decent magical tank.

Lorenz can also function well as a mage. The 10% increase to his Magic growth gives him a 50% total to work with. His decent Magic and low Speed are conducive to his spell list, which contains mostly heavy, high-might spells that enable Lorenz to do a lot of single-attack damage. He can also still make use of gambits from a distance as a spell-caster.

The Cavalier and Mage lines most easily converge on the Dark Knight class. Paladin Lorenz might prefer to remain in that class to hold onto Lancefaire and the superior movement. Mage Lorenz will mostly gain a direct upgrade from Warlock or Dark Bishop that he can easily attain thanks to his strengths in lances and riding.

With his high Charm, Lorenz is also a valid candidate for the Dancer class. However, outside of the Verdant Wind or Crimson Flower routes players will likely want to avoid this choice as Lorenz does not rejoin immediately like most units.

Personality and character

Lorenz's snobby demeanor belies a serious man aware of his responsibilities as a noble. He has been approaching the women at the Officers Academy, with little success.

Endings

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose (Silver Snow, Verdant Wind, Azure Moon)
Soon after the war, Lorenz assumed leadership over House Gloucester and helped govern Fódlan as a representative of the old Alliance lords. His political talent yielded revolutionary policy changes, many of which were of particular benefit to the commonfolk.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose (Crimson Flower)
Soon after the war, Lorenz assumed leadership over House Gloucester and joined the realm of Imperial politics as a representative of the old Alliance lords. His political talent yielded revolutionary policy changes, many of which were particularly beneficial to the commonfolk.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Byleth, Ruler of Dawn (Verdant Wind)
Byleth announced her marriage to Lorenz shortly after becoming leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan. Lorenz took equally well to his dual roles as the queen’s husband and as the leader of House Gloucester, working simultaneously to restore his own territory and to advance the development of Fódlan at large. Because his policies were of particular benefit to the commonfolk, he was well loved, and came to be called the Lord of Roses. After many years of peace, Lorenz grew ill and withdrew from the public eye. The queen followed, entrusting the throne to the prince. It is said that he was the spitting image of his father.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Claude, King of Unification
Claude disappeared from Fódlan after the war, leaving the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz, to support the new United Kingdom of Fódlan in his stead. He proposed revolutionary policies to restore the war-torn region at a rapid rate. When the rebuilding effort was complete, Lorenz turned his eye toward diplomacy, seeking to establish treaties of friendship with foreign nations. Almyra was no exception, and when the two parties met for a summit at Fódlan's Locket, it was none other than Claude, the new king of Almyra, who arrived to negotiate. Some speculated that this meeting had been Claude's scheme all along, but Lorenz and Claude both denied it.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Marianne, Survivor of the Curse
As the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz first worked to restore his own territory, and then expanded his vision to include reforms for all of Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Marianne. Prior to the wedding, she received extensive tutelage from her adoptive father, Margrave Edmund, so that by the time they were wed she was fully prepared to govern. The pair was particularly successful in providing new innovations in dairy farming, and came to be known as the mother and father of horses and cattle in the region. It is said that Lorenz was rather vexed by the title.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Lysithea, Scholar of Misfortune
As the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz first worked to restore his own territory, and then expanded his vision to include reforms for all Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Lysithea. Though the only daughter of Count Ordelia had already renounced all claim to nobility, the people happily accepted their union. She rarely appeared in public, due to health concerns, but it is said that a great many policies credited to Lorenz were actually her ideas.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Hilda, Free Spirit
As the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz first worked to restore his own territory, and then expanded his vision to include reforms for all Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Hilda, the only daughter of Duke Goneril. After the recovery effort, at Hilda's behest, the pair established artisan academies all over Fódlan. The schools quickly flourished, invigorating interest in the arts as well as trade with foreign lands. After many years of success and prosperity, the students of the first of these academies crafted a bronze statue of the founding couple to honor their achievement. The statue stands to this day.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Manuela, Divine Songstress
As the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz first worked to restore his own territory, and then expanded his vision to include reforms for all Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Manuela, who had established a new school for children in a small town. Seeing the beauty in Manuela's dream, Lorenz put all his resources toward building schools like Manuela's all over Fódlan, providing education to scores of children who had been left helpless by the war. After many years of success and prosperity, a bronze statue of the couple was erected at the original school to honor their achievement. It stands to this day.

Lorenz, Noble of the Red Rose & Catherine, Free Knight
As the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz first worked to restore his own territory, and then expanded his vision to include reforms for all Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage Catherine, the former Knight of Seiros. Catherine had left Garreg Mach behind for a life of freedom, but was eventually persuaded to accept Lorenz's passionate marriage proposal. Even after joining House Gloucester and returning to life among the nobility, however, it is said that Catherine much preferred relaxing in a tavern to dressing up for court.

Quotes

Battle quotes

Lorenz: Acheron! What a pleasant surprise! I was concerned I might have to kill someone decent.
Acheron: Ha! House Gloucester is already finished. I've already taken control of your land!
Lorenz: That's quite enough of your spinning, Weathervane. Time for you to die.

— Lorenz, fighting Acheron in Crimson Flower Chapter 13.
To oppose the Empire at a time like this would be entirely too reckless.
— Lorenz, as an enemy in Silver Snow/Azure Moon Chapter 16.
It's been a while, Professor. If this were anywhere but a battlefield, I would offer you tea. I've no choice but to follow the Empire, if I wish to live. I hope you will not think ill of me.
— Lorenz as an enemy, when fighting Byleth in Silver Snow/Azure Moon Chapter 16.
Lorenz: Give it up, Acheron! We are in the right. If you try to remain here any longer...
Acheron: What, you'll kill me? A tiny kid like you kill someone like me? Oh, that's too funny.
Lorenz: An animal like you cannot be allowed to run amok. We will settle this here and now!
Acheron: If you think you're up to the task, then by all means. But it's not my fault if it ends badly for you.

— Lorenz fighting Acheron in Land of the Golden Deer.
