“My instincts tell me that he's up to no good, and my instincts are never wrong.”
—Caspar

Caspar is a playable character that appears in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Caspar is a student at the Officers Academy who's from the Adrestian Empire and a member of the Black Eagles. He is 16 years old at the start of the game.

Profile

Early life

Caspar is the second-born son of House Bergliez. He is also the step-nephew of Randolph and Fleche. His step-uncle and step-aunt are the children of his grandfather's favored second wife, and Randolph was initially favored for succession. His grandfather's deteriorating health, however, forced him to retire early in Imperial Year 1168, and Caspar's father inherited the County of Bergliez. At the age of 6, he befriended Linhardt.

Academy phase

Due to being lower in the line of succession, Caspar sets off for the Officers Academy in Imperial Year 1180 to make a name for himself through martial ability.

After graduating, Caspar becomes an Imperial army general. Should Byleth support Edelgard instead of Rhea (leading to the Crimson Flower route), Caspar will join their cause, where he expresses relief that he made the right decision in doing so, believing that if he stayed in the monastery, he would have to fight his father, who intimidated him. Should Byleth support Rhea instead of Edelgard (leading to the Silver Snow route), Caspar will join their cause, saying that Edelgard is in the wrong by causing a war.

If the Black Eagles route is chosen, in Imperial Year 1185, Caspar is assigned to the Black Eagle Strike Force at Garreg Mach. Like the other students, he is relieved to see Byleth return.

Following the capture of Derdriu and absorption of Alliance lands, Hubert states that Count Bergliez will oversee the newly-acquired lands, prompting Caspar to show surprise and state that Hubert intends to make his father quite busy.

If recruited into the Blue Lions house before the start of the war, Caspar will reunite with his Blue Lion comrades five years later in 1185. Although knowing that he has effectively abandoned his country, Caspar remains with his former classmates. Caspar mourns his uncle Randolph's death, wondering if Dimitri's methods are justified.

In Caspar and Mercedes' shared Paralogue, available in every route except Crimson Flower, intel arrives that a small battalion lead by the Death Knight have been scouting the monastery since it was reclaimed. Mercedes, believing the Death Knight to be her younger half-brother Emile, decides to confront him. Caspar follows her to protect her and a fight ensues, though the Death Knight refuses to attack anyone. In the aftermath of the fight, Caspar, Mercedes, and Byleth confront the Death Knight who passively affirms Mercedes suspicions. The two attempt to sway the other into leaving the war or joining the other's cause, but neither are willing. The Death Knight hands Mercedes the Hero's relic of House Bartels and leaves, warning that the next time they meet, he will kill her.

If not recruited into the Blue Lions or Golden Deer house, Caspar will be among the forces defending Fort Merceus alongside the Death Knight and Linhardt if the latter was also not recruited. He will meet his fate here unless the Death Knight is defeated before him.

A conversation with Dorothea after Chapter 20 of Verdant Wind reveals that, as the Empire was surrendering, Caspar's father, Count Bergliez, has given his own life so the soldiers fighting under him would be given quarter. His sacrifice moves Dorothea to tears.

If Byleth sides with Rhea, Caspar will join the Resistance Army, though worried by the fact that he would have to face his father in battle. Despite his worries, the Church of Seiros brings the fight to Enbarr, where Caspar learns that his father is leading reinforcements to protect the Imperial capital. Following the battle, Caspar learns that his father had died, sacrificing his own life so that his men could surrender, mourning his death.

Personality

Caspar leads a life bound to his strong sense of justice and loves getting into fights. He is a "punch first, apologize later" sort of individual when it comes to conflict. He hates lies and unfair treatment, and overall has a very honest and unrestrained personality. His hotheadedness often gets him into trouble and at times causes inconvenience to others, failing to consider their feelings, such as "kidnapping" Bernadetta to bring her to a secret location that he knew she would like, but failed to account for her feelings. His simple-minded outlook on life also causes him to miss subtle romantic cues in many of his A-Supports with women, instead taking them at face value.

As a crestless noble and second son to succession, Caspar is far different from most Fódlan nobles. He developed a instinctual need for competition as he was often overshadowed and sometimes outright ignored by his family due to his older brother's accomplishments and his father's status as a war hero. At times, he is grateful that he is not the one to succeed House Bergliez as he can live a life he desires unbound from the trappings of nobility.

Like most of the other male students in the Black Eagles, his relationship with his father is somewhat shaky, although he's intimidated by his martial prowess, expressing fear about having to fight him.

In his supports with Petra and Shamir, Caspar shows some form of guilt for the actions of his father against Brigid and Dagda during their war with the Empire. This shows when he feels Shamir would not want to train him due to his father's prominence in the war, while with Petra he feared she would hate him due to his father having killed hers.

Recruitment

Caspar will automatically be recruited if Byleth chooses to teach the Black Eagles house in chapter 1. If Byleth chose to teach any other house, Caspar can transfer to their class if Byleth has a high enough Strength stat and a high enough Brawl proficiency. The player can decrease the required threshold if the player has a support rank with him.

Overall

Secret Book (Artwork).png
Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

True to his nature, Caspar is a reckless physical attacker by default, possessing proficiency in both axes and gauntlets. He has generally decent to acceptable base stats accord the board, but is unfortunately hindered greatly due to his base 6 Speed, the slowest start in the game tying with Raphael. This combined with an only acceptable Speed growth of 45% means he will trail behind slower than most of your units for the entire game. However, thanks to his decent growths overall and solid base Strength of 9, he hits hard, while also sporting a relatively good critical hit chance. He also has a high HP growth rate, but his Defense and Resistance don't allow for him to be a reliable tank. These growths also allow Caspar to make good use out of the Combat Arts that come from his Axe and Brawling investment, such as Wild Abandon or Mighty Blow. His personal skill lowers adjacent enemies' Avoid, which alleviates the poor Hit of axes and helps bow users confirm follow-up hits from afar. However, as a brawling unit, Caspar faces competition from the bulkier Raphael (and Balthus) and the swifter and stronger Felix, while Edelgard simply outclasses him in Axe skill, leaving him in the middle ground between said characters (though he can become a War Master while Edelgard and Hilda cannot). Caspar also has an unfortunate weakness in Authority, which makes it hard for him to use better battalions as the game progresses, and his Charm growth rate isn't good either, so his Gambits will be less effective and he will be vulnerable to enemy Gambits.

Caspar's strengths, most notably his high health, and decent attack, dexterity and speed growths, and access to the war master class also make him a good user of the chalice of beginnings, using its ability to counterattack regardless of range to form a deadly enemy stage presence regardless of range in combination with Vantage, Wrath, the War Master's innate critical +20 and either the Killer Knuckles+ or the Killer Axe+ (making your base crit chance during enemy phase at least 100 on the knuckles, or at least 105 for the axe when below half health,) for a near guaranteed critical on counterattacks, with the killer axe providing more raw damage, slightly more crit chance, and ready access to war masters personal combat art, War Master's Strike, and the killer knuckles, in addition to its innate brave quality on player phases, has the higher hit rate, and it circumvents the axebreaker skill you see in hard and maddening difficulties. this makes the only viable way for enemies to counter him either knocking him out before he gets below half health, (which can be partly prevented by using abilities such as Quick Riposte), battalion gambits, or a monster's staggering blow. this is a risky approach at the start, and may take noticeable effort to get going, or possibly taking up an adjutant slot until at least War-phase, but once it does it may cause Caspar to start "snowballing", taking out swathes of opponents simply by walking into their range, making it easy for him to level up, which makes it easier for him to slay opponents and survive, which in turn makes it even easier and safer to level up, and so on and so forth

Caspar is relatively one-dimensional in what he can do for classes, as he has pronounced weaknesses and narrow strengths. He will be naturally drawn through the Fighter line, to Brigand, Warrior, or Grappler, and then War Master. He does very well in this role and picks up good skills doing so like Death Blow and Quick Riposte. Since Caspar has no flying weakness, he could also feasibly become a capable Wyvern Rider or Wyvern Lord, but such roles are covered better and easier by the likes of Petra or Ingrid. If trained in Swords, Caspar makes a suitable Hero, and can couple its innate Vantage with Wrath from the Warrior class with the Chalice of Beginnings for a lethal enemy phase presence, and is an alternate option to vantage/wrath war master, losing the bonus critical chance and both axefaire and fistfaire from war master to open up an additional ability slot and the ability to better use a Killing Edge or a Wo Dao through swordfaire. Magical classes are not advised for Caspar due to his poor spell lists, low Magic, and weakness in Reason, but one could feasibly train him in Faith and get War Monk for Brawl Avoid +20 or Trickster for Duelist's Blow; acquiring Bishop could also help him raise his Resistance to a 15 minimum, helping shore up his defenses (this would likely require New Game+, though). Caspar's weakness in Bows isn't a huge problem for him, though training him up to be an Archer for Hit +20 can definitely help him hit slipperier enemies.

Overall, Caspar is simple and fairly mediocre, but has potential to be effective, able to smash through most foes with his decent offensive capabilities. Just don't mistake him for a tank; he has plenty of health to spare, but he will often take quite a bit of damage when hit.

In recognition of his achievements during the war, Caspar was given the title of Minister of Military Affairs in the new Adrestian Empire. Though his command developed a reputation for occasional recklessness, he proved an able leader, guiding his troops to overcome countless obstacles. Long after his career had ended, tall tales of the glory and good cheer that he brought to his army endured.

Caspar - Roaming Instigator (Other routes)

After the war, Caspar set out alone on a journey of self-discovery. He traveled to every corner of Fódlan and even ventured abroad now and again. It is said that he got into mischief at every turn but that the victims of his antics, always more amused than harmed or offended, remembered him fondly and passed those stories on to future generations.

Caspar and Byleth (Crimson Flower)

Almost immediately after Byleth and Caspar had celebrated their marriage in style, the battle against those who slither in the dark began in earnest. As the new Minister of Military Affairs, Caspar worked with Byleth to command the Imperial army and bring peace to Fódlan. His impulsive bravery, tempered by his spouse's more level head, proved instrumental to victory in a great many battles. Their troops became known most of all for their ability to laugh in the face of danger.

Caspar and Byleth (Azure Moon)

After taking on the role of archbishop of the Church of Seiros, Byleth announced her marriage to Caspar. But Caspar, never one to sit still for long, set out on a journey of self-discovery. He traveled to every corner of Fódlan and occasionally even took the archbishop along. It is said that he got into mischief at every turn, and that the archbishop sometimes had to invoke her authority to calm things down, but that the victims of his antics always came away more amused than harmed or offended in the end. The stories of their travels were remembered fondly for generations.

Privately, the couple's relationship as husband and wife was more tempestuous. Their spats were frequent, but it is said that Edelgard took pleasure in her ability to influence Caspar, and Caspar enjoyed reining the emperor in from time to time. It was a strange but happy union.

After the war, Linhardt and Caspar abandoned their noble houses to pursue a carefree journey wandering the world. They traveled to every corner of Fódlan, and even ventured abroad now and again. Caspar got into trouble at every turn on their travels, but Linhardt was always there, begrudgingly, to get him out of it. The records of their adventures were immortalized in a book by an anonymous author, entitled "The Thousand Roads and Seven Seas." It is said they did eventually settle down, after the events in those stories, but where they actually did is unknown.

When her efforts brought the opera house to the peak of its resurgence, it is said that Dorothea relinquished her position as songstress in order to retire with Caspar. They are rumored to have spent the rest of their lives together.

Caspar and Dorothea (Other routes)

After the war, Caspar set out alone on a journey of self-discovery. He traveled to every corner of Fódlan, and even ventured abroad now and again. Though his antics found him no end of exciting adventures, he was always drawn back to Dorothea, who had returned to the Mittelfrank Opera Company in Enbarr after the war.

It is rumored that the pair spent the rest of their lives together.

Caspar and Petra

Petra returned to her homeland of Brigid, and inherited the throne from her grandfather. As ruler, she declared independence from Fodlan, and renegotiated Brigid's diplomatic ties to Fodlan and Dagda on more equal terms. At every step along the way, she was accompanied and supported by her husband, Caspar, who had left Fodlan begind to be with her.

Caspar and Ashe

After the war, Caspar and Ashe embarked on a carefree journey around the world. They traveled to every corner of Fódlan, and even ventured abroad now and again, with the sole purpose of punishing those who preyed upon the helpless. Though Caspar seemed to get into trouble at every turn, Ashe was always there to get him out of it, and Caspar's bravery and strength returned the favor more than once. Though opposites in many ways, they shared the same view of justice, and their abilities complemented one another nicely. The stories of their adventures lived on as exciting and amusing folktales.

Caspar and Annette (Crimson Flower)

In recognition of his achievements during the war, Caspar was given the title of Minister of Military Affairs in the new Adrestian Empire. Though he was well-known for his valor in battle, it was his wife, Annette who reined in his recklessness and who truly kept the army in order. The troops came to see Annette as a motherly figure, and under her guidance, the Imperial army thrived. In their private life as a couple, the roles were totally reversed, as Caspar had to be the one to step in and correct Annette's various calamities around the house.

Caspar and Annette (Other routes)

Annette returned to her hometown of Fhirdiad, where she took up a teaching position at the school of sorcery and mentored many great sages.

They journeyed to every corner of Fódlan, and even ventured abroad now and again. Caspar's antics caused endless entertainment for Hilda, who loved to stand by and watch him fight or squirm his way out of trouble. Eventually, their free-spirited adventure was called to an end by Hilda's brother, Holst, who offered Caspar a position as a knight in service of House Goneril. Caspar accepted, and before long, he and Hilda were married. The couple raised many children, and were said to have a notoriously lively household.

Caspar and Catherine (Azure Moon / Silver Snow*)

When Rhea absconded her post as archbishop, Catherine resigned from the Knights of Seiros and followed in order to protect her. They were joined by Catherine's new husband, Caspar, who had the same goal, and together they retired to a life of seclusion in the Red Canyon. Caspar and Catherine spent the bulk of their days farming and hunting, but since neither was content to go a day without wielding a weapon, they sparred routinely. The sound of their swords ringing out, in time with Caspar's heated cries, was heard daily across the valley.
* Requires Byleth to have an A Support or higher with Rhea.

Caspar and Catherine (Verdant Wind / Silver Snow*)

Catherine resigned from the Knights of Seiros and traveled across Fódlan with Caspar. They dedicated themselves to defending the helpless wherever they went, and in time, the names Thunder Catherine and Inferno Caspar were known to all the world. Legends of their adventures became so popular and well-known that even catchphrases such as "Face the wrath of Thunderbrand!" and "Hey, that's not your sword!" were recounted in the stories that were passed down for generations.
* Requires Byleth to not achieve an A Support or higher with Rhea.

Caspar and Shamir

After the war, Caspar and Shamir used their clout as heroes to establish a mercenary company. They branded themselves as crusaders for justice, punishing those who preyed on the weak or exploited others for their own gain. None could compete against their combined martial skill, and they became famous all throughout Fódlan. Their travels took them to every part of the world, and while Caspar's antics occasionally got him into trouble, Shamir's steady presence and firm demeanor helped to resolve matters amicably. Their stories endured as amusing anecdotes, passed down through generations.
