The Golden Deer (金鹿の学級ヒルシェクラッセ Hirushekurasse) are one of the three student houses at the Garreg Mach Monastery Officers Academy in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. At Rhea's invitation, Byleth must choose between the Golden Deer and the other two houses, the Black Eagles and the Blue Lions, to personally teach.


The Golden Deer house at the Officers Academy is comprised of students who hail from the Leicester Alliance. Compared to the other houses, the Golden Deer has more students from a commoner background, many of whom are proficient at using bows.

The Golden Deer name and banner were inspired by creatures of the same name that are said to have been sacred protectors of the Leicester region since time immemorial.

Etymology Edit

The Japanese pronunciation of the three classes take their names from German. The Golden Deer are roughly called "Hirschklasse," which means "Deer Class", or "Hart Class".
