Death Knight is a character-exclusive Class that first appears in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is the unique class of a character whose true identity is hidden.

Initially enemy-exclusive, the Death Knight class is made playable in Update 1.1.0, where Jeritza, a unit exclusive to the Crimson Flower route, has it unlocked as a Unique class.

Profile

An ill omen, said to appear only at night, the Death Knight is a soldier of the Flame Emperor and solely obeys their orders. First appearing alongside some Western Church insurgents when raiding the Holy Tomb, the Death Knight merely accompanies them, but refuses to fight for their cause, never engaging Byleth or their students during their battle. When the leader is defeated, the Death Knight teleports away.

The rumors of the Death Knight spreads throughout Garreg Mach Monastery as Flayn goes missing one night during the Horsebow Moon, believe to have been kidnapped by a reaper. After a thorough investigation, Byleth and their class surmises the likely identity of the reaper, leading them to the Knight Barracks where their suspicions are ultimately proven true.

Overview

The Death Knight is functionally similar to the Dark Knight, bearing a proficiency for Lances, Reason, and Riding. As an enemy class it is completely unplayable and the Reason affinity of this class ultimately goes unused as the Death Knight solely uses Lances, namely his Scythe of Sariel (or a Brave Lance should he be defeated by Caspar in The Face Beneath) as his primary weapon.

As of Update 1.1.0, the Death Knight class is made playable, as a Unique class for Jeritza. The class itself plays like a neutered version of the Dark Knight, as the Class Abilities it has are Canto and Lancefaire, with no other Class abilities, not even a Tomefaire ability to take advantage of its Reason proficiency. That being said, Death Knight does have one thing going for it that sets it apart from Dark Knight: its Mastery Skill, which is Counterattack, which makes Jeritza a threat at all distances.
