Hubert is among the forces joining Edelgard during the three way battle at Gronder Field. Though he proves problematic for the Kingdom Army, he is ultimately overwhelmed and forced to retreat.

Hubert mainly takes a passive role, supporting Edelgard as her advisor. He does make a few appearances as the Boss of some paralogues such as Petra's and Dimitri's, but is ultimately forced to retreat in his defeat for both.

After Dimitri and the Kingdom forces capture Fort Merceus, Hubert receives a message from the Kingdom, requesting Edelgard to parley with Dimitri. Surprisingly, Edelgard accepts on a whim and meets with Dimitri and Byleth with Hubert in tow. Ultimately, the two are unable to reconcile their differences and war between the two will come to a head in the Empire.

Hubert makes a final stand in Enbarr, leading the Empire's forces to defend the city. Despite a tremendous and grueling defense, Hubert is killed and with his dying breaths, hopes that Edelgard will win. His fall leads to the capture of Enbarr, allowing Dimitri and his forces to finally face Edelgard within the Empire's castle.

Verdant Wind/Silver SnowEdit

Hubert continues to hound Byleth's army as Edelgard's lieutenant, appearing as an enemy commander in the Battle of Garreg Mach, Petra and Bernadetta's paralogue, and the siege of Enbarr. Upon Edelgard's defeat in Enbarr, a surviving Imperial general delivers a posthumous contingency letter addressed to Byleth, from Hubert. Through the letter, Hubert informs Byleth of the nature of Those Who Slither in the Dark, and says that it is the duty of the victor to end their ambitions. He also reveals the location of Rhea's hidden cell, allowing for her recovery and return to the monastery.

"End of spoilers. It's a pleasure doing business with you!"


Hubert is immediately striking as threatening and sinister. His interactions with people outside of his trust appear consummately villainous; in keeping with this, he cannot support with any students outside of the Black Eagles. However, his grave demeanor and ominous eloquence belie his intentions.

Hubert has been a stalwart servant to Edelgard and maintains undying loyalty to her. He is protective of her, and will do whatever it takes to eliminate obstacles for her, as his supports with Byleth in particular have him openly considering killing them if he thinks that they aren't useful to Edelgard. He is willing to disobey an order if he believes it to not be in Edelgard's or the Empire's long-term benefit. Hubert's willingness to carry out gruesome orders and to use underhanded methods to advance his master's plans put him at odds with Ferdinand, who believes a good advisor is one who challenges others to be better.

Hubert hates his father for similar reasons, as he played a role in Edelgard being spirited away to Faerghus as a youth, and the subsequent corruption of the Empire's nobility. As such, he shows no hesitation in having him killed him as part of the purge of said nobility. Even when Hanneman points out that his father could have been trying to protect him by garnering power for himself, Hubert refuses to budge on his hatred of him.

While seen by most as heartless and cold-blooded, Edelgard has vouched that he is honorable, which is exemplified in his contempt for Those Who Slither in the Dark. He believes that the atrocities they commit lack any justifiable motives, and he makes it clear in the Black Eagles route that they only work together out of necessity. Hubert also attempts to get along with fellow members of his house but he expresses his support of them in strange ways, such as subjecting Bernadetta to his hardest, most evil laugh in an effort to help her overcome her fear of him. He views his classmates as valuable assets to the Empire and is sharply critical of them to foster improvement. Very rarely, Hubert will express saccharine sentimentality, even blushing in a support with Ferdinand.

Hubert is the resident magic attacker of the Black Eagles house, possessing very high growths in Mag, Dex, Spd, and Res. He will shrug off magical attacks and obliterate most enemies he engages, but will buckle to one or two physical hits. Hubert is one of only three units who learn Dark magic, setting him aside from Dorothea and most mages from other houses. Even among Dark users his spell list is robust, with unique access to the incredibly useful spells Mire B, Banshee Θ, and Death Γ. These spells give him extended range and bonus effects to help tackle the toughest enemies. Hubert's personal skill, Officer Duty, makes his Gambits hit just as incredibly hard as his Dark magic does. The only mage who hits harder than Hubert is Lysithea, but Hubert is sturdier than Lysithea.

Given his skill levels, Hubert will have easy access to the Soldier class family (Soldier), the Fighter class family (Fighter, Archer, Sniper), and the Monk class family (Monk, Mage, Dark Mage, Warlock, Dark Bishop, Dark Knight). His skill strengths make him well suited for the Monk path. His budding talent in Lances will help him promote to Dark Knight, although this will require extensive horsemanship training in the monastery. Like many other mages, Hubert is particularly fragile and needs to be well-protected from enemy physical units. Unlike most other mages, Hubert has a weakness in Faith and a pitiful White magic pool, so he is almost strictly relegated to combat magic, though that is what he does best. It is better to leave healing to the far more capable Linhardt and Dorothea. While Hubert also has an affinity for Bows, his below-par Strength means he won't be able to use them effectively, though it may be worthwhile to briefly class him as an Archer just to get the Hit+20 skill, as his dark spells can occasionally have accuracy issues against nimble opponents.

Hubert - Emperor's Confidant

Hubert devoted his life fully to the service of Edelgard. Operating in the light and the shadows alike, he disposed of countless burdens facing his emperor, using any means necessary. Though his ghastly appearance and imposing demeanor were ever feared, he paid his reputation little heed, focusing instead on his loyalty to the emperor.

Hubert and Byleth

After a fierce battle, Byleth and Edelgard finally brought the tyranny of a godlike being to an end. Though wounded in the conflict and stripped of divine power, Byleth continued to fight alongside the emperor to bring true peace. Hubert joined them in this fight, fulfilling his promise to confront those who slither in the dark head-on. In that darkness, Byleth and Hubert formed an unbreakable bond. It is said that, as a married couple, they were totally inseparable.

Hubert and Edelgard

As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard gave all she had to breathe new life into the government of Fódlan. With tireless work, great sacrifice, and her devoted servant Hubert by her side, she instituted new class reforms and helped to ensure the people's independence. Hubert was always close at hand, ready to dispose of unsavory burdens by any means necessary. In their later years, they passed the fruits of her labor on to Edelgard's successor and vanished from the public eye. Though it is said they spent the rest of their lives together, it is unlikely they ever gave voice to the true depth of their affections.

Hubert and Ferdinand

Hubert and Ferdinand became the left and right hands of Emperor Edelgard, competing constantly with each other to see who could be the more helpful. They were opposites - The Minister of the Imperial Household, melancholy and merciless, and the prime minister, bright and compassionate. Still, they brought out the best in each other.As the empire became orderly and prosperous, the two came to be known as the nation's "Two Jewels," and were remembered fondly for generations to come. Some say their fame made even Emperor Edelgard jealous.

Hubert and Bernadetta

The marriage between Hubert, Minister of the Imperial Household, and Bernadetta, leader of House Varley, was so surprising to the public that it was much talked about even outside of political circles in the capital. Bernadetta took the oppurtunity to survey the far reaches of the new Adrestian Empire, and in her absence, Hubert took well to the management of Varley territory. They proved to be an astonishingly good match, working together to protect Fódlan from the shadows. It is said that they showed their affection for one another by wearing matching embroidered flowers.

Hubert and Dorothea

After the war, the Mittlefrank Opera Company made a resurgence, in no small part thanks to the patronage of Emperor Edelgard's confidant, Hubert. Dorothea made a comeback as a songstress in the troupe, which traveled all over Fódlan, putting a large share of its profits towards relief efforts. The opera company was warmly welcomed by the war-weary people as a source of solace, and became even more famous than before. It was not discovered until many years later that the troupe's tour had been a covert operation, coordinated by Hubert and Dorothea, to gather intelligence for the Empire.

Hubert and Petra

Shortly after the war, Brigid renegotiated its diplomatic arrangement with the Adrestian Empire, ending its service as a vassal and becoming a full ally. As part of that agreement, Petra, queen of Brigid, was wed to Hubert, Marquis Vestra. Some say that the marriage was purely political, ordered by Emperor Edelgard, while others insist that it was of their own accord. Although they led busy lives, and sometimes lived separately. Still, their shared home in the western Fódlan village of Nuvelle was filled with their many children, suggesting a loving union.

Hubert and Shamir

As confidant of Edelgard, Hubert disposed of every burden facing his emperor by any means necessary, and excelled at working in the shadows. Supporting him from the frontlines was the former mercenary, Shamir, who commanded the emperor's elite troops. When the two married, they appeared from the outside to be little more than a lord of the empire and his dutiful wife. In reality, their nights were filled with fierce combat against rebels, assassins, and those who slither in the dark. It is reported that one of them was known to often state that, "To find love between life and death is a gift." It is unknown which of the two actually spoke these words.
