Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes features many of the same characters from the hit Fire Emblems: 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.

|Claude von Riegan||A skilled archer who has been discriminated against since childhood for being part Fódlan, part Almyran. He learned to hide his cunning nature with a prankster’s attitude and wants everyone to unite despite their race, rank, or Crest. He was finally seen as the legitimate heir to the Almyra throne just before going to school.|
|Hilda Valentine Goneril||Her older brother, Holst, is a legend who many assumed would take the Almyran throne before Claude was legitimized. She’s Claude’s right hand and lazy as all get out, but she is also skilled with an ax.|
|Lorenz Hellman Gloucester||He often tries flirting with ladies, but his arrogant attitude is completely offputting. He’s the son of a nobleman and rides a horse with lance in hand into battle.|
|Raphael Kirsten||A merchant’s son who chose to become a knight after his parents were killed by a monster. He’s very focused on his muscular physique, but also a kind soul.|
|Igntaz Victor||He is also the son of merchants and has a keen eye for art and books. In battle, he wields a bow and arrow.|
|Lysithea von Ordelia||She is a magical prodigy and much younger than the rest of the people around her. However, she hates being referenced as young or little.|
|Marianne von Edmund||A reserved young woman with magical talents. She was raised by her uncle after her parents died. Her uncle paid the Garreg Mach Monastery so they wouldn’t look into her Crest.|
|Lionie Pinelli||She is a hunter-turned mercenary who apprenticed under Byleth’s stepfather, Jeralt, for a time. She uses a lance while mounted on a horse.|
