The Ashen Wolves (灰狼の学級) is a group that inhabits Abyss. They appear and play a critical role in Cindered Shadows, a DLC side-story in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. They claim to be the secret fourth house of the Officers Academy, yet have no official affiliation. Instead of having eight members, like the other houses, they only have four who can be recruited after completing Cindered Shadows.
Described as a house in name only, the Ashen Wolves are all people who have been wronged by society in some way. Having found comfort in Abyss, they actively seek to protect it and its citizens from harm.
The group's flag is that of a lone gray wolf standing over a globe. Its shape and colorization are similar to those of the normal houses' flags.
Clothing of the Ashen Wolves resembles the typical students' uniform of the Officers Academy with some minor distinctions, the biggest of which being the color scheme. Instead of focusing mostly on black and gold, the Ashen Wolves focus more on silver and grey. Additionally, they have black chains over their clothing that no other students have.
- Yuri Leclerc - The leader of the Ashen Wolves.
- Hapi - A disinterested resident of Abyss.
- Balthus von Albrecht - A rowdy man from the Leicester Alliance and the self-proclaimed "King of Grappling".
- Constance von Nuvelle - The only known survivor of House Nuvelle, a noble house of the Adrestian Empire.
Much like the other three classes, the Japanese pronunciation of the Ashen Wolves takes their names from German. The Ashen Wolves are roughly called "wolfklasse," which means "Wolf Class."
