The Commoner is a class that debuted in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

It is the counterpart to the Noble class, and acts akin to a trainee class.


Commoners are one of two base classes available to every unit in the game; the only difference between them and Noble is the 5% Charm growth available to Nobles. Regardless, there is little reason to remain in this class, as the lack of growths does little for any unit, and the HP +5 skill is not necessarily worth grinding out class mastery for.

Commoners have access to various weapon types and even movement types, (such as Mounted, Flying, etc.) that they can advance through via training. Upon reaching a minimum rank in one of these areas they can promote into a base class.

  • The appearance for Commoners is unique to each character. For the students, it will also change during the story five years later, being the model chosen for each of the characters' "default" advanced/master classes when encountered outside of being in the player's chosen faction (such as the Mage/Warlock class for Dorothea) as though the option to wear monastery wear in battle is turned on for them.
