Holst is a character mentioned in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a duke of the Leicester Alliance, the head of House Goneril, and older brother of Hilda.

ProfileEdit

A former student at the Officers Academy, Holst was credited for securing victory for the Golden Deer at The Battle of the Eagle and Lion during his academic year.

Duke Holst Goneril inherited his family's title sometime before Imperial Year 1180. As the head of House Goneril, Holst was charged with defending the Leicester Alliance from invasions from the neighboring kingdom of Almyra and managing the fortress of Fódlan's Locket. He earned a reputation as Leicester's greatest general.

Prior to Claude being recognized as the true heir of House Riegan, many thought Holst would succeed Duke Riegan as the new leader of the Alliance.

In 1180, Holst fell ill amidst an Almyran attack on Fódlan's Locket. Hilda was summoned to take over the defense of the fortress in her brother's stead. Fortunately his illness was merely food poisoning from eating a bad mushroom, and he was expected to make a full recovery shortly after the battle with the Almyrans ended.

In 1185, Holst made an agreement with Claude and Nader to allow the Almyran army to enter Fódlan, to assist in the capture of Fort Merceus.

Following the destruction of Shambhala and the resurrection of Nemesis, Holst led the Alliance forces in a battle to stop his violent rampage across Alliance territory. Hopelessly outmatched, Holst sustained serious injuries battling Nemesis, but bought enough time for his colleagues to retreat and send word to Claude at Garreg Mach.
