Rodrigue Achille Fraldarius (pronounced /ɹɑd'ɹig æ'ʃil fɹɑlˈdɑɹiəs/[key]) is a non-playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a knight in service to the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and the father of Glenn and Felix.

Biography

Rodrigue was a knight in service to King Lambert of Faerghus. His older son Glenn was slain in the Tragedy of Duscur; Rodrigue considered his death to be befitting of a knight. His feelings on this matter enraged his surviving son Felix, who considered Glenn's death to be a pointless waste, and the two became estranged.

Rodrigue briefly appears in Chapter 5 as an envoy from Faerghus sent to ensure the Lance of Ruin is retrieved from Miklan, and makes no further storyline appearances on the Verdant Wind or Silver Snow routes. On the Crimson Flower route, Rodrigue is one of the commanders in charge of the defense of Fort Arionrhod, along with Cornelia, Gwendal, and a non-recruited Felix and Ingrid. He is slain by Adrestian forces seeking to assassinate Cornelia, and the fortress is seized. On the Azure Moon route, he provides Dimitri with reinforcements at Aillel, the Valley of Torment, and accompanies the Faerghus army as a travelling companion. During this time, he expresses concerns about Dimitri's fractured mental state, but continues to follow him loyally. After the Battle at Gronder, Fleche, the younger sister of an Adrestian general Dimitri killed, attempts to assassinate Dimitri, but Rodrigue takes the blow and is mortally wounded. He dies encouraging Dimitri to live for what he believes in, and this event snaps Dimitri out of his psychotic state.

Personality and character

Rodrigue holds the Faerghus ideals of chivalry and honor in high esteem, and is extremely loyal to the late King Lambert's memory. He often clashes with his younger son Felix on this matter due to his older son Glenn's death in the Tragedy of Duscur disillusioning Felix. On the Crimson Flower route, he shows he is willing to kill Felix if he betrays the Kingdom to side with Adrestia.
