“I'm Captain Jeralt's first and best apprentice. I can beat anyone, Professor. Even you, if I have to. It may only have been for a short time, but I learned from the absolute best.”
—Leonie speaking to Byleth

Leonie is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Leonie is a student at the Officers Academy who's from the Leicester Alliance and is one of the Golden Deer. She is 19 at the start of the game.

Profile

Leonie is the daughter of a hunter, hailing from Sauin Village within the County of Gloucester in Leicester Alliance. She meets Jeralt in 1174 who takes her in as an apprentice during his short time there. Though short, he gifted her a special charm which she held on to ever since, inspiring her to become a mercenary like him one day.

Academy phase

Leonie borrowed money from her village to enroll in the Officers Academy in Imperial Year 1180 in order to become a mercenary and make money. She enrolls in the Golden Deer class.

War phase

During the five year period between the Academy and War phases, Leonie achieves her dream, becoming a successful mercenary. Depending if she joined Byleth's class or not changes her fate during the war.

Fulfilling the promise the Golden Deer class made five years earlier, Leonie reunites with her classmates in Chapter 13, arriving with Hilda, Lorenz and Ignatz to rout bandits in the vicinity of Garreg Mach. After the battle, she commits to fighting back against the Empire alongside Byleth and Claude to secure her village's safety and the integrity of the Alliance. She also seeks revenge against Edelgard and the Empire over their alleged role in Jeralt's murder, and against Those Who Slither in the Dark after the events and revelations of Chapter 20.

If recruited by the Black Eagles, Leonie sides with Edelgard, realizing that Jeralt was suspicious of Rhea, and promising to support Byleth, affiliating herself with the Empire as a mercenary. She is deployed to the Garreg Mach garrison in Imperial Year 1184 and joins the Black Eagle Strike Force a year later. When Byleth returns from their five-year coma, Leonie is delighted to see them alive and well, intending to uphold the promise she made to Jeralt by supporting Byleth's cause.

If she is not recruited but the Black Eagles route is chosen she appears in Chapter 13 arriving with reinforcements to combat the Imperial army where she can die in battle with Judith mourning her death, though it is entirely possible that she can survive by eliminating Judith before engaging her. If Byleth engages her, she will show anger that Byleth chose to ally with the Empire despite knowing that Jeralt's killer was connected to them.

If she is not recruited in the Blue Lions route, she appears in Chapter 17 as part of the Alliance army. If she is killed, Claude will be surprised at her death and thinks it's a sign that he underestimated the enemy. It is possible that she can survive by eliminating Claude and Edelgard before her.

Personality

Deeply indebted to her home village, Leonie diligently trains every day to make them proud and lives modestly. Her goal is to eventually become a mercenary so she can return the favor to her village, only joining the Officers Academy in the first place to train towards her dream, and having no qualms in having to the fight the Church since she was never particularly devout.

When an incident during her childhood left her small village suffering from poachers, Jeralt and his band of mercenaries appeared to fight them off. His act of heroism inspired the young Leonie to dream of one day becoming a great mercenary as well. Due to this, Leonie seems to idealize Jeralt, often referencing him or espousing teachings from the time he spent in her village. She considers herself his "first and only apprentice," and takes great pride in the fact that Jeralt saw potential in her. As a result, she takes Jeralt's death the hardest, arguably wanting to avenge Jeralt's death even more than Byleth when facing Kronya.

Despite or perhaps because of this, Leonie pushes herself to live up to her mentor's legacy. During the War phase, Leonie adopts a similar uniform to Jeralt's and carries a similar shield. Following the end of the war, she becomes known as The Blade Breaker II and successfully leads Jeralt's former company in many of her endings. In some endings, she also copies Jeralt's worst tendencies, including his passion for drink and habit of leaving unpaid bar tabs behind. In others, such as her paired ending with Shamir, Leonie rises above Jeralt's flaws and becomes the most famous mercenary in Fodlan's history.

Leonie also appears to be rather competitive when interacting with Byleth, and considers them a potential rival due to the fact that they are the child of her hero, something which she envies them for, because she believes they don't properly appreciate Jeralt as a father. However, after her mentor's death, she makes it clear she will give her life toward them because that is what Jeralt would want, effectively citing this as her reason for why she follows Byleth even when joining the Black Eagles or Blue Lions.

Leonie can be rather impulsive and blunt, and has a habit of speaking her mind even when it may not be appropriate. Her ability to speak to her emotions is something of a double-edged sword, as it means she is completely honest with her goals and feelings, but also doesn't hold back and may not be tactful. She is also very proud of her abilities as a warrior and does not hesitate to demonstrate her power as well as her cunning.

Despite her brash and competitive demeanor, Leonie also appears to have a somewhat sentimental side as she reminiscences about what the support of her village means to her. She mentions having an affinity for painting as a young girl, but quickly had to abandon the hobby to take up more practical skills. Leonie is also sensitive about not being treated like other girls her age, treatment that is likely a result of her blunt, impulsive, and bold behaviour, and tomboyish appearance.

Recruitment

Leonie will automatically be recruited if Byleth chooses to teach the Golden Deer house in Chapter 1. If Byleth chose to teach any other house, Leonie can transfer to their class if Byleth has a high enough Strength stat and a high enough Lance proficiency. The player can decrease the required threshold if the player has a support rank with her, and upon reaching a B+ rank, she may ask to join your class on a free weekday (even if the Strength stat or Lance rank is not high enough).

Overall

Secret Book (Artwork).png
Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Leonie is a jack-of-all-trades physical unit having solid Speed and Dexterity and slightly above average Strength, Defense, HP and Luck. She is extremely vulnerable to mages due to a low Resistance growth and is ill-suited for Mage oriented classes due to a low Magic growth. Leonie is a solid physical combat unit overall and benefits from fighting close to male allies as her personal skill Rivalry boosts her damage by 2 and reduces damage taken by 2 when adjacent to a male ally. Her main drawbacks compared to Sylvain and Ferdinand are her lower HP growth rate (which isn't a serious issue thanks to her Speed, but it can make her less viable as a tank) and her lack of a Crest, which makes her unable to use Heroes' Relics without New Game+. She also lacks the Swift Strikes Combat Art that Sylvain and Ferdinand have, making her less powerful with Lances offensively. However, she has a bow combat art, Point-Blank Volley, that fills much the same niche. Leonie also has a healthy number of Support chains, making her good at contributing to Linked Attacks and Gambit Boosts, as well as at receiving such bonuses from others.

She is proficient in Lances, Bows, and Riding, making her a natural fit for Cavalry classes and the Archer lines, the former is her defaulted line if she is recruited outside of the Golden Deer house. Leonie is one of the most flexible physical units as she has no subject weakness, thus can fill a plethora of physical oriented classes as needed. Out of all Cavalry default units, she is the strongest Bow Knight candidate as she has a natural affinity for all three core stats required to reclass into it and can compete with Shamir for the role in terms of long term potential since she has the proficiency in Riding while Shamir is neutral. Keeping her as a Cavalier or Paladin doesn't hamper her Speed growth too much either (she'll still have at least 50%), so she's less likely to end up slow compared to Sylvain or Ferdinand. Still, if one wishes to preserve her Speed, it is best not to have her gain levels in a cavalry class; one could alternatively make her a Pegasus Knight or Swordmaster to increase her Speed growths to incredibly high levels (up to 80%), though it will require training her Flying or Sword skill (both of which she is neutral at). Falcon Knight is a great class for her, as her lance proficiency will have the chance to shine thanks to Lancefaire, and her now 80% speed growth can cause her speed to spiral upward into the 50s, in conjunction with having similar goals to Pegasus Knight. Alternatively, you could make her a Wyvern Lord, and Wyvern Rider makes a good in between point at level 20-30. If one wishes to maximize her Dexterity instead, Archer and Sniper are the best classes to pick while also providing a bonus to her Luck growth; this can be better on Maddening difficulty than trying to maximize Speed since several enemy types on Maddening are virtually impossible to outrun (i.e. Assassins, Swordmasters, etc).

Like with other physical attackers, there are other skills that can highly benefit Leonie. Training in Axe can get Leonie to acquire the Brigand class for Death Blow, while training her in Flying can get her to Pegasus Knight for Darting Blow. Paladin can get her Aegis to protect her against bows and spells, the latter being a greater threat to her, and even heavy armor classes can provide some benefit to her, such as Fortress Knight giving her Pavise (which she can easily trigger due to her high Dexterity). Sadly, training her in Brawling won't prove too beneficial for her, as she cannot become a Brawler, Grappler, or War Master (though she could become a War Cleric), and Healing Focus isn't the most useful skill to her due to her HP only being slightly above average. Interestingly, Assassin is a good class for Leonie thanks to its growths, but Lethality can be fairly strong in her hands due to her high Dexterity (though it may be more worthwhile to use other skills for consistent damage output).

While Leonie's magical capabilities are fairly weak, she is still neutral toward Reason and Faith. Leveling those skills may seem like a waste of time, but if Reason is trained enough, Leonie could become a Valkyrie in order to acquire Uncanny Blow, helping her land shots even at long range or against evasive enemies. Dark Flier is not advised as Transmute is not a good choice on Leonie; it requires taking a hit from a magical attack, something Leonie is weak to. Acquiring Bishop may seem less helpful to her since Renewal won't be as good with her modest HP, but acquiring the class will raise her Resistance to a minimum of 15, which could help if she hasn't been getting enough through her poor growth rate. Acquiring these magical classes will likely require New Game+ or using infinite auxiliary battles on Normal difficulty.

Overall, Leonie is regarded as one of the best characters in the game due to her sheer growth rates and lack of skill weaknesses. Her Speed is identical to Petra's if given the right classes (though Yuri is still faster on average), her Dexterity and Luck make her excellent for scoring critical hits, and she can even take a decent amount of damage from physical attacks (though she's not a true tank). Magic is her only real weakness, but this can be overcome with good tactics or with the extra range she gets from the Bow Knight class.

"Just a minute! The following section contains spoilers, viewing it will cost a lot. Are you prepared to pay for it?"

Leonie - The Blade Breaker II

"Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. She came to be known as Jeralt the Second, as she began to resemble him in all things—including his drinking habits. She left behind many unpaid tavern tabs."

Leonie and Byleth (Verdant Wind / Silver Snow)

"Byleth announced his marriage to Leonie shortly after becoming leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan. Though she accepted the status of queen, Leonie disliked the pageantry of the position and refused to part with her weapons. She avoided court and instead founded the Jeralt Company, an elite group of soldiers hand-picked from the royal guard. They mostly busied themselves by hunting down bandits and monsters, but they also stopped the remnants of the Imperial army from organizing a revolt. It is rumored that one knight of rare skill who fought alongside Leonie in the Jeralt Company was none other than the king himself."

Leonie and Byleth (Crimson Flower)

"Almost immediately after Byleth and Leonie had finished their lively wedding ceremony, the struggle against those that slither in the dark began in earnest. Leaving the Black Eagle Strike Force behind, the pair formed a new group called the Jeralt Company and invited all their friends and allies to join them. The group fought all across Fódlan, cementing the Empire's victory and cleaning up its enemies. With Fódlan secure, all but two members of the Jeralt Company returned to their homes. The couple continued their careers as mercenaries, taking on all kinds of tasks, from monster hunting to tavern security. Their strength and humility were well loved."

Leonie and Byleth (Azure Moon)

"Byleth announced his marriage to Leonie shortly after being named archbishop of the Church of Seiros. Though she accepted the status of the archbishop's wife, Leonie disliked the formality of the position and refused to part with her weapons. Avoiding involvement with the church, she founded the Jeralt Company, an elite group of soldiers hand-picked from the Knights of Seiros. They served as guards to the archbishop in peacetime, and were first to respond to reports of bandits or monsters. It is rumored that one knight of rare skill who fought alongside Leonie in the Jeralt Company was none other than the archbishop himself."

Leonie and Claude

"Leonie returned to Sauin Village to repay her debts and mysteriously vanished afterwards. Some years later, when trade between Fódlan and Almyra began in earnest, the village received notice that the Almyran king would be passing through on his way to Garreg Mach. The village rushed to prepare themselves. When the anticipated day arrived, they were shocked to find Leonie at the king's side. She had gone to visit Claude in Almyra, and had ended up staying to become his queen. Faced with the sight of Leonie in the resplendent clothing of a monarch, her father and the other villagers could do nothing but stand in mute amazement."

Leonie and Felix (Azure Moon)

"Leonie took over the mercenary group formerly led by Jeralt. She made a name for herself as a superb mercenary and was eventually hired by the young Duke Fraldarius, Felix. He entrusted her with many important tasks, and over time, Fraldarius territory became Leonie's home base. The two spent a great deal of time drinking together, but Felix, knowing Leonie's reputation and habits, learned to extract her payment for the drinks in advance."

Leonie and Felix (Other routes)

"After the war, Felix abandoned his noble title and chose to make a living with his sword. He accepted Leonie as his partner, and together they became wandering mercenaries. Their different fighting styles complemented one another well, and their combined skill was enough to handle any enemy. Some time later, the mercenary group formerly led by Jeralt joined them, and under their leadership, became the most feared company in Fódlan. After the post-war chaos passed, however, work became scarce, and the pair eventually became so desperate that they rebranded themselves as street performers. They proved surprisingly capable in their new profession."

Leonie and Lorenz

"As the new head of House Gloucester, Lorenz first worked to restore his own territory, and then expanded his vision to include reforms for all of Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Leonie, who had become a renowned mercenary. The choice came as a shock to the public, who could not see what the pair had in common, but those who knew them well saw it as inevitable due to the strength of the bond they had forged during the war. As a ruling couple, they used their varying talents to usher in a new age of prosperity and carve their names into history."

Leonie and Raphael

"Leonie took over the mercenary company formerly led by Jeralt. She ran out of money constantly, however, due to sending all of her earnings back to her village, and so developed a reputation for unpaid tavern tabs. When she came upon the inn that Raphael had been helping to run with his family, she was overjoyed to finally find a place that would trust her enough to open a new tab. In her years frequenting the establishment, she accrued such a massive debt to Raphael that the only way to pay him off was to work for him. By the time the debt was finally paid, she had moved in with him. They lived happily for the rest of their days."

Leonie and Ignatz

"Leonie took over the mercenary company formerly led by Jeralt. Though she earned a great deal of renown, the work began to dry up as the post war chaos subsided. It was around that time she had a chance to reunion with Ignatz, who had persuaded his family to allow him to wander the world as an artist. Remembering how they had once promised to travel together, Leonie disbanded her mercenary company and resolved to accompany him. The pair left Fódlan, searching for sights hither too unseen. Where their journey took them remains unknown."

Leonie and Seteth

"While Seteth remained at the monastery after the war to restore the Church of Seiros, Leonie wandered the land in pursuit of her dream to become an elite mercenary. It seemed as if their paths would never cross again. Years later, after they had achieved their goals, both retired and disappeared from the public eye at the same time, as if it had been prearranged. Though no official records of their lives after that time exist, it is rumored that a happy couple resembling them was sighted in a small mountain village. The couple was known for their excellent fishing skills, and for cooking up their bountiful catches for all the local villagers and travelers."

Leonie and Alois (Crimson Flower)

"Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role, and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. No matter where she went, however, she was burdened with Jeralt's unpaid tavern tabs. Angry with Alois for pushing these debts upon her, she went to see him with the intention of forcing him to pay half the debt. But when she arrived, she found a suntanned Alois happily lounging after a hard day's work on his family farm. Leonie found herself unable to go through with it. She did become a world-renowned mercenary, but she spent the whole of her career paying off debt."

Leonie and Alois (Other routes)

"Leonie joined up with the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. As his greatest apprentice, she quickly took on a leadership role, and eventually even inherited the title of Blade Breaker. No matter where she went, however, she was burdened with Jeralt's unpaid tavern tabs. Angry with Alois for pushing these debts upon her, she went to Garreg Mach to force him to pay half the debt. She encountered a smiling Alois, who had become captain of the Knights of Seiros, and who was all too happy in his new prosperity to take the debts back on. It is said that Leonie developed quite the drinking habit once she was free to visit taverns whenever she liked."

Leonie and Shamir

"Leonie assumed leadership of the mercenaries formerly led by Jeralt. One day, she was hired to protect a noble who had been warned of a bandit attack. The warning note listed all of the noble's foul deeds, and was signed with the image of a spider, which Leonie recognized. Just as she suspected, the one who came on the appointed day was none other than Shamir. Leonie was happy to break her contract on this occasion, and even offered Shamir a position in her company. The result was the most famous mercenary group ever to exist in Fódlan. It is said that their flag bore the image of a spider, and...another vaguely arachnid creature."
