Hm. I suppose it is time for you to take charge of one of our three houses of students. I must note that I am personally against entrusting someone as lacking in trackable history as yourself with such a task, but it is as the archbishop desires.
— Seteth

Three Houses (Japanese: 三つの学級 Three Classes) is the first chapter of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It consists of a short exploration segment, followed by a mission, Rivalry of the Houses (Japanese: 鷲と獅子と鹿の戦い Battle of the Eagles, Lions, and Deer).

On the 24th of the Great Tree Moon, the group arrives at Garreg Mach Monastery, where Archbishop Rhea thanks Byleth for rescuing the students. She convinces a reluctant Jeralt to rejoin the Knights of Seiros as an adviser to the aging captain and hires Byleth as a professor at the academy. After introducing themselves to their colleagues Manuela and Hanneman, Byleth interviews the twenty-four students and chooses one of the three houses to lead: the Black Eagles, the Blue Lions, or the Golden Deer; unbeknownst to them all, this choice will shape the history of Fódlan for generations to come. Afterwards, Byleth formally introduces themselves to their new students.

Two days later, Hanneman explains the history of the Crests. He tests Byleth and discovers that they have a mysterious Crest he does not recognize. On the 30th, the three houses engage in a mock battle, and Byleth's students emerge victorious. Rhea praises Byleth's progress with their students. Her retainer Seteth orders Byleth to continue to train in preparation for the Battle of the Eagle and Lion that is to take place in half a year. Rhea explains that next month's mission will be to rout some bandits. Elsewhere, a mysterious masked individual berates Kostas for his failure in his objectives.

Beginning log (Rivalry of the Houses)

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

The player is forced to explore on the 23rd, when they must chose a house to teach. The decision immediately affects the event cutscenes the player sees and what units they start with; it also determines what battalions they have access to at the Battalion Guild, what units they may recruit, and what later chapters they play through. The Armory and Item Shop open on the first free day, which the player is forced to spend in exploration. The second free day has three quests which unlock activities in the monastery; Fresh Catch unlocks fishing, Green Thumb Beginnings unlock gardening, and Share a Bite unlocks dining—dining will grant enough experience towards Professor level to raise it to E+, which will increase the total number of activity points, but will not increase the activity points for that session.

The battle at the end of the mission is against the two houses that the player did not chose to teach. On Classic mode, units lost in this battle will return afterwards. Byleth and the lord are forced to be deployed. Edelgard, Dedue, and Leonie with Rivalry active have the highest protection of their respective classes; Linhardt, Mercedes, and Marianne have the highest resilience and have Heal. As enemies, Hubert and Dedue are particularly threatening, as the former deals very high magic damage, and the latter has the highest HP and defense of any enemy present with the potential to activate Staunch Shield and gain +4 defense; additionally, Dimitri has high attack and attack speed, dealing significant damage and can double most units, especially on Maddening. Moving to the northeast will provoke both groups of north enemies; doing so allows for a faster clear, but can be overwhelming if the west units arrive before the east units are defeated.
