Not far into Fire Emblem: Three Houses, players are required to choose between the three Houses that make up the Officer’s Academy. If you want to be as prepared as possible, then knowing all the available students in each House is going to be important. In this guide, we’ll discuss the characters and students available in the Black Eagles.
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|
|Bernadetta von Varley||Solder, Fighter|
|Caspar von Bergliez||Fighter|
|Dorothea Arnault||Myrmidon, Monk|
|Ferdinand von Aegir||Myrmidon, Soldier, Fighter|
|Linhardt von Hevring||Monk|
|Petra Macneary||Myrmidon, Fighter|
|Hubert von Vestra||Monk|
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.
