“I have my own reason for not giving up. And the less I speak of it, the better...”
—Baron Dominic's pre-battle quote in Weathervanes of Fódlan

Baron Dominic is an enemy character from Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. He is a noble of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and the older brother of Gilbert and uncle of Annette.


Baron Dominic is a noble in the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. He is the elder brother of Gustave, who left the Kingdom and abandoned his family in shame after the Tragedy of Duscur. Baron Dominic took both Gustave's wife and young daughter, Annette, into his home, and protected them in Gustave's stead in hopes that he would one day return home.

Noticing his niece's talent for magic, he enrolled her in the Royal School of Sorcery in Fhirdiad, where she excelled and graduated from at a young age. He would later help her attend the Officers Academy.

Three Houses[]

Azure Moon[]

Seeking strength to help the Kingdom's Army, Annette pays Baron Dominic a visit in order to acquire the Dominic Heroes' Relics, Crusher, though Gilbert suggested otherwise as House Dominic has sided with Cornelia and will brand them as enemies. Annette and Gilbert ask Byleth and their army to wait outside in case something happens. As expected by Gilbert, Baron Dominic refused to hand over Crusher. When Gilbert suggests to Annette that they leave, Baron Dominic stops them from doing so, as letting an enemy of the Empire leave would be considered collusion and orders his men to capture the two.

Byleth's army manages to defeat Baron Dominic and his soldiers, but not kill him. Baron Dominic reveals that he instigated the fight to draw suspicion away from his people, as he could not let Annette leave with Crusher, as Cornelia would see this as a betrayal and forcefully subjugate his lands. He states that by simply having a fight in which he was defeated, it would make Cornelia believe that Byleth and their army attacked them and stole Crusher. Baron Dominic also promises Gilbert that he will continue to protect his wife while they continue their fight, telling him to return to her once the war was over.

Warriors: Three Hopes[]

Scarlet Blaze[]

Continuing their march through Kingdom territory, Dimitri rallies the Western lords, most notably Baron Dominic due to his ties to the Ten Elites, in a last-ditch attempt to stall the Empire's advance. Baron Dominic hands over Crusher to Annette to help defend their lands, much to Gustave's concern, though the three lament that Simon refused to return home, which Dominic believes is a result of his own negligence. Outside Brennius territory, the Empire prepares their final attack, with the remaining lords, Gustave and Annette waiting for them.

During the battle, Edelgard demands for Baron Dominic to surrender (despite calling for his death), though he refuses as to not disgrace his people. After Gustave is slain and Annette is either slain or forced to retreat, Baron Dominic comes out to confront the invaders, only to fall in battle. In his dying breath, he apologizes to Dimitri and his family for failing them. Edelgard mourns his death, as he was forced into a life and death that he had no control over.

Azure Gleam[]

When Baron Dominic learns of Viscounts Mateus, Elidure, and Gideon's complicity in Lambert's assassination during the Tragedy of Duscur and their attempts to defend their actions, he chastises them for their cowardice and not attempting to seek a less violent way to voice their opposition to Lambert's policies. Cornelia attempts to blackmail Baron Dominic until Gustave and Annette arrive with Dimitri to quash the Western Coalition's rebellion and convince him to openly turn against the traitorous lords.


A kind and caring man, Baron Dominic took in his sister-in-law and niece when his younger brother went into a self-imposed exile. He cherished his niece in particular, fostering her talents in magic. Even by Imperial Year 1185, he continued protecting them. While he is willing to assist him, he also prioritizes the citizens of his territory and finds a way to circumvent the protection of his people and assisting his niece in overthrowing Cornelia, whom he despises, though in private.
