Edelgard “I know this is highly unlikely, but on the off chance that Rhea surrenders to my terms, what should I do? I would appreciate your thoughts on the matter…” “Strip her of her power so she can’t interfere in politics.”
Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Hubert IconHubert 5/12 “Such interesting ideas you seem to have, Professor, but tell me this: what would you do if you were given the task of teaching a subject that you yourself did not understand?” “I’d take the time to study the subject before teaching it.” (+50)
Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Hubert IconHubert “The weak-willed care little for how they are governed, but Lady Edelgard wishes to open their eyes. How would you achieve this, in her position?” “The only way to help them see is to educate them.”
5/12 “When I take a lecture I’m not interested in, I get so… sleepy. I just can’t fight it. I should just give up, don’t you think? Close my eyes and enjoy a peaceful slumber.” “No need to fight it, you can’t help it.” (+50)
Linhardt During Part 2 “Hey, Professor! I think I’m ready… I think it’s time you finally gave me a nickname! What’s a guy gotta do to earn one?” “You actually have one, but it’s too scary to say out loud.”
Linhardt During Part 2 “I sometimes find books written in languages I’ve never seen before. I’d love to read them somehow, but I don’t even know where to start… Do you have any ideas?” “Piece things together using linguistic clues.”
Bernadetta 5/12 “Um. Sorry, but you should probably just skip me. I don’t have a question to ask. How would I even think of one?” “You just did.” (+50)
Bernadetta During Part 2 “I want to knit an animal doll for someone, but I’m not sure what kind to make. They love eagles, lions, and deer equally! I don’t know what to do…” “Why not make one of each?” (+50)
Ferdinand 5/12 “I am an avid arms collector. Since coming to live here, however, I have had much more trouble finding new items for my collection. any ideas as to where I might find some uncommon weapons?” “Ask a blacksmith to teach you how to craft your own.” (+50)
Ferdinand During Part 2 “Death is an inevitable result of military conflict. Not only soldiers, but also warhorses, who have no say in their line of work, lay down their lives on the battlefield. What steps can a commander take to minimize this loss of life?” “Adopt new tactics that increase survivability.”
Petra 5/12 “I am having a question. I wish for improvement of my lance skills. But I am having uncertainty about how to be training effectively. What should I be doing?” “Try studying the movements of others for improvement.” (+50)
Petra During Part 2 “As I am fighting more, my arrows are decreasing in quality. They are not flying as far and have less accuracy. What can I be doing differently?” “New bowstrings could help you shoot with more force.” (+25)
Dorothea 5/12 “You know how sometimes an ordinary girl can be more popular than an exceptional beauty? Or how, with aristocrats, some prefer a viscount when they could have a duke instead? Why do you think that is?” “Fancy meals are boring if you eat them every day.” (+50)
Dorothea During Part 2 “Songs are so powerless, Professor. No matter how much one sings of peace, there’s no soldier on the battlefield who will listen. It’s horrible that one can only sing of peace in times of peace…” “Some songs have the power to end conflict.” (+25)
Caspar 5/12 “Pretty soon I’ll have eaten everything they have to offer in the dining hall. then what am I supposed to do? Keep eating the same boring meals over and over again?” “You should just enjoy what you’ve got.” (+50)

Dimitri During Part 2 “Those from the northern Faerghus are used to the frigid cold. Although Garreg Mach is located atop a mountain, the summer heat can be quite unbearable for soldiers from the north. What can I do to boost their morale?” “Cooling off in a nearby river is always a good option.”
Sylvain 5/12 “I’ve been trying to win the heart of this girl, but none of the fancy gifts or sweet things I tell her have worked. Do you know know any secret dating tricks I can use to win her heart?” “Stay away for a while so she starts to miss you.” (+50)

Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Ingrid IconIngrid 5/12 “Art has never been my forte. Even when I apply myself and sketch a ton, I don’t seem to improve much.

Annette During Part 2 “Just thinking about how, even now, someone out there is fighting for something, I just can’t seem to sit still, even during my breaks. What should I do at times like that?” “You could assist with my daily tasks if you like.”

Marianne During Part 2 “Soon a day will come when we must all part ways. I get so sad just thinking about it… It’s not practical to keep focusing on this though, is it?” “The goddess will always protect everyone.” (+50)

Leonie “People call Captain Jeralt the Blade Breaker. I figure, if I want to be a top-tier mercenary like him, I’m going to need a tough-sounding title of my own. Help me out.” “The Executioner.”
Lysithea 5/12 “There’s so much to do and never enough time in which to do it. Sleep is a nuisance, but my body forces me to slow down, even though my mind doesn’t want to. Do you have any tips for shaking tired feelings away?” “Sleeping when you’re tired is best for you.” (+50)
Lysithea During Part 2 “I’ve heard rumors about ghosts roaming the monastery… I’m certainly not scared, nor do I have time to worry about it, but…uh… You should probably do something about it, for the sake of the others!” “Let’s bring more candles to the halls to brighten things up.” (+50)

Hanneman During Part 2 “When I do nothing but fight, my spirits falter and I lose the will to keep things tidy. That is when my room falls to disorder, and my spirits falter even more. Is there no way to break this cycle?” “Take a short break to do something that raises your spirits.” (+50)
Manuela 1/5 “Hey. Maybe you can answer a question I’ve had for a while now… Why is it that men don’t like women who are messy?!” “Men have unrealistic expectations.”
Manuela During Part 2 “I think alcohol consumption increases as we continue to fight, day after day after day after… Oh, I mean for the monastery. As a whole, dear. Not just for me.
