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. She was a student from the Black Eagles House at Garreg Mach Monastery.

Biography

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, losing her father in the process. 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, leading to many people in-universe to speculate she had run away. In 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.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Role

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 (who 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.

Trivia

  • Monica has voiced lines in the game's data meant for monastery quests, which normally cannot be seen without hacking.
