All Black Eagle characters and students

There are eight students in the Black Eagles at the start of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. As the House that’s focused around members of the Adrestian Empire, the Black Eagles includes Edelgard von Hresvelg, the heir apparent to the throne of the Adrestian Empire. Many of the students in this class focus heavily around the use of black magic and axes. We’ve included a list of all the students in the Black Eagles below, as well as included which classes they have access to with their given skills.

Character Name Available Classes Based on Starting Skills
Edelgard von Hresvelg Myrmidon, Soldier, Monk, Fighter, Lord

Caspar von Bergliez Fighter
Dorothea Arnault Myrmidon, Monk
Ferdinand von Aegir Myrmidon, Soldier, Fighter
Linhardt von Hevring Monk
Petra Macneary Myrmidon, Fighter

It’s important to keep in mind that acquiring some of the subclasses in the classes we’ve listed above could take additional work on each student’s part. Because of this, you’ll want to focus them on the particular skills that they need to reach the specific classes and subclasses that you want them to grow into.
