Monica von Ochs[2] (Japanese モニカ=フォン=オックス Monica von Ochs) is a non-playable character mentioned in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and a playable character in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. She was a student from the Black Eagles House at Garreg Mach Monastery.



Monica was a scion from House Ochs in the Adrestian Empire. In Imperial Year 1175, the Dagda and Brigid War occurred, in which her house was attacked by the combined forces of Dagda and Brigid.

In 1179, Monica enrolled at the Officers Academy in Garreg Mach Monastery as a member of the Black Eagles, but she disappeared right before graduation during a trip back home,[3] leading to many people to speculate she had run away.

Three Houses

In mid-1180, she appears to be discovered unconscious in the Monastery by Byleth and their class, and is rescued right along with Flayn in a secret chamber beneath Jeritza's living quarters, where they had just fought the Death Knight up until he was forced to retreat by the Flame Emperor. Monica is then allowed to enroll once again in the Black Eagles so she may finally graduate. It is eventually revealed that the girl the player had known as Monica is in fact the assassin Kronya. After this revelation, Seteth theorizes that Kronya may have murdered the real Monica and used her form as a disguise, although this hypothesis is never definitively proven.

Warriors: Three Hopes

In early 1180, Shez and their classmates discover Monica while mopping up the survivors of Kostas' band of thieves and rescue her, preventing her from being replaced by Kronya. Monica identifies the Garreg Mach librarian Tomas as her kidnapper and rejoins the Black Eagles, fighting alongside them during the war that ignites two years later.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Monica (or rather, Kronya impersonating her) is an NPC who can be interacted with at Garreg Mach Monastery during Chapters 7 and 8.

Personality and character

Monica, as portrayed by Kronya, is a very cheerful and jolly girl who likes spending company with Edelgard too much (whom she nicknames "Edel"), to the point Hubert has to step in at one point just so his liege can have a moment of tranquility. Her true personality is obfuscated by the fact that she is being impersonated by Kronya throughout her acquaintance with Byleth however, as multiple students in the monastery and Hilda herself comment the real Monica wasn't as cheerful as her impostor, to the point they consider she might be putting a facade as means to cope with having been held hostage underground for a whole year.

In Warriors: Three Hopes, Monica's character (separate from Kronya) is expanded upon. She has an attraction to Edelgard, blushing when complimented by her, fawning over her, relishing in her successes and trying to do everything in her power to be of service to her and thus curry her affection. She mentions disagreeing with Hubert often, only finding common ground in their subservience to Edelgard, though Hubert admonishes her for being to eager to impress her.
