Claude von Riegan
The heir to the Leicester Alliance, Claude is a laid-back leader who doesn’t seem to adhere to the rules strictly.
Choose your house
Not long after your adventure begins, you’ll be asked to enrol in one of the Officers Academy’s three mighty houses. The students of these houses wield unique abilities and are brimming with personality, but choose wisely – your choice will shape your destiny!
The students of this house hail from the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. Their leader is none other than Prince Dimitri. The Blue Lions value chivalry and excel at military arts.
Home to students from the Adrestian Empire and led by the future emperor, Edelgard. Most Black Eagles are noble born and wield magic.
This house is comprised of students from the Leicester Alliance. Led by Claude, the Golden Deer may lack organisation, but they make up for it in skill.
Command your forces
Lead your companions in real-time battles against countless hordes of enemies, using flashy combos, powerful special abilities and some tactical know-how!
Before you head into the fray, carefully examine the map, consider your objectives, choose your allies and equip them with the right weapons. Some of them will have advantages against specific foes, so make sure to deploy them to the right location when giving orders.
In the heat of battle, hack and slash your way through swarms of enemies with calculated manoeuvres and earth-shattering abilities. By assigning an ally as an Adjutant, they’ll watch your back and lend their support to help mow down foes with powerful Partner Specials.
Make sure you give orders to your comrades, too! Dominate the battlefield by sending your troops to capture strongholds, defend friendly forces or launch an all-out offensive to turn the tides in your favour. If a situation elsewhere on the battlefront requires your intervention, switch between allies on the fly to take direct control of them and resolve the conflict.

Rest and prepare
Between skirmishes, lay down your weapon and take a well-earned rest at the Base Camp. It’s the perfect place to bond with your companions, train up troops, and prepare for the battles ahead.
Spend time getting to know your allies by sharing a hearty meal, volunteering in some camp chores or embarking on a relaxing expedition. As your bonds deepen, they’ll share personal stories with you, and in turn, they’ll offer better support on the frontlines.
In need of better equipment or want to test new strategies? Then acquire some shiny new weapons, unlock new classes, or participate in mock battles and training sessions. Use the spoils of your battles to expand the facilities in your encampment too. This will increase their functionality so that you and your party can reap even more benefits from using them.
