“As they say, if you can't beat them, join them. I'm not in for a beating, am I?”

Acheron is a character in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a minor noble in the Leicester Alliance.

ProfileEdit

Acheron is the head of an unidentified noble house, the smallest in the Leicester Alliance, with territory just north of the Great Bridge of Myrddin. His political opportunism has earned him the moniker "the Weathervane", and is looked down upon by just about everyone, especially Count Gloucester's son, Lorenz.

Despite the lack of power he holds, he still holds enough influence in both the Alliance and Empire that simply removing him would be unfeasible.

Academy PhaseEdit

In Imperial Year 1180, Acheron gets in a territorial dispute with Count Gloucester and raises an army to annex part of Gloucester territory. The count orders his son, Lorenz, to deal with Acheron, and successfully does so.

If Byleth taught the Golden Deer or Lorenz transfers to the House they are teaching, he decides to enlist the aid of Byleth and his fellow classmates, which works out well for him Acheron's army was larger than he expected.

Intending to obtain more territory, Acheron ordered the attack to commence. The attack fails however; if fought and defeated, he pleads to be spared, ending the attack as the rest of his men flee. If not defeated within the turn limit, he realizes he is facing a stubborn defense and decides to give up, retreating with his men.

Following the battle, Acheron sent a letter to Count Gloucester, pledging to end the border dispute with him.

War PhaseEdit

Five years later in Imperial Year 1185, Acheron is one of the commanders sent to reinforce the Great Bridge of Myrddin.

If Edelgard was sided with, Acheron is sent by Claude to support Judith's defense of the bridge against the attacking Adrestian Empire. He is openly resentful of being forced to obey Claude's orders, as he views Claude as a "false leader". If Leonie was not recruited, then she will state that he has the smallest House in the Alliance.

Should either Leonie or Judith fall in battle, Acheron and his men will leave the battlefield, unwilling to die for a cause he doesn't believe in. It is likely that he sides with the Empire afterward should this happen. If he is fought and defeated, in his final moments, he complains that he should have allied with the Empire sooner.

If Dimitri, Claude, or the Church of Seiros was sided with, Acheron arrives following Ladislava's message and attacks Byleth's forces from the rear. Although he is an Alliance noble, Acheron sided with the Empire and seeks to curry Edelgard's favor by distinguishing himself in battle. If Acheron is defeated during the battle, in his final moments, he complains that he should not have allied with the Empire.
