All characters and paths in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Which characters will you align yourself with?

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes features many of the same characters from the hit Fire Emblem: Three Houses RPG. However, this is a new story with new possibilities where you no longer play as Byleth. Much like Three Houses, this Warriors game has you choose which group of people you want to align yourself with. This will allow you to get to know these characters better and will unlock unique dialogue specific to them. Here are all of the characters we know of so far.

WARNING: There are some spoilers from the original Fire Emblem: Three Houses on this page. If you don’t want character info or plot points spoiled for you, read no further.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes — Three paths

One of the big draws in the original Fire Emblem: Three Houses RPG was the replay value provided by the three different paths you could take. Going along with this same energy, the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes spin-off allows players to align with Edelgard and her followers in the Scarlet Blaze path, follow Dimitiri and his allies in the Azure Gleam path, or join Claude and the rest of his Leicester Alliance friends in the Golden Wildfire path. Regardless of which path you choose, you’ll always be able to play as Shez and have Byleth as your enemy.

This spinoff is bigger than the original Three Houses game, requiring 13.4GB of space. This hopefully means there’s a lot of content to get through. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure you have enough room on your best microSD card.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes — Characters

There are a handful of characters that you will see a lot of regardless of which path you decide to choose. Some of these characters are playable while other non-playable characters are important to the story.

Ingrid Brandl Galatea She was engaged at birth to Felix’s brother but then he died at the Tragedy of Duscur. Her sole focus has been to become a knight to honor her felled fiance.

He was finally seen as the legitimate heir to the Almyra throne just before going to school.
