What are Battalions?

Fire Emblem Three Houses Battalions

Battalions are squads that accompany characters in battle to bestow various special abilities. These abilities, called gambits, range from dealing damage to providing support to allies.

A battalion’s HP is separate from their leading character which is reduced when the leader takes damage. When the battalion’s HP reaches zero, the leading character will not be able to use gambits and lose all special effects they grant.

Similar to characters, battalions become stronger by leveling-up through combat. They also learn better abilities this way.

How to Deploy Battalions

You can hire battalions from the Knights Guild. Note that a character must have the required level in authority to lead one. Significant levels in authority are required to hire strong battalions with very useful gambits. Having high authority also gives a variety of additional effects when using gambits.
