“Aristocrats are fools—allowing their lives to be dictated by their Crests. Though...I suppose I am much the same in that regard...”

Lysithea is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is a student at the Officers Academy who is from the Leicester Alliance and is a member of the Golden Deer. She possesses both a Minor Crest of Charon and a Major Crest of Gloucester.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Lysithea is the eldest daughter and heir to House Ordelia. When she was two years old, her family suffered retribution from the Adrestian Empire for their role in House Hrym's revolt. She is a magical prodigy whose talents developed at an early age.

In retaliation for House Ordelia answering House Hrym's call for aid, the Empire gained temporary control over the family while the Alliance turned a blind eye to avoid confrontation. The Empire killed key members of House Ordelia and replaced them with Imperial officials. Some of those officials were mages of Those Who Slither in the Dark, who then imprisoned the Ordelia children and began conducting Crest experiments on them. Lysithea's parents were powerless to stop them and could only watch in horror as their children perished one by one. Lysithea alone survived the experiments and gained two Crests: a Minor Crest of Charon and a Major Crest of Gloucester. The mages were pleased at their success, but because the procedure of implanting two Crests had dramatically shortened Lysithea's lifespan, they lost interest and departed.

Due to her truncated life and the suffering her family had endured, Lysithea resolved to bring its affairs to an end. After completing her education and ensuring that her parents could live comfortably and in peace, she planned to eschew having children and dissolve House Ordelia.

Academy phase[edit | edit source]

Lysithea enrolled in Garreg Mach Monastery Officers Academy in Imperial Year 1180, and joins the Golden Deer. Being 15 years old, she was the youngest student admitted. After the end of the Academy phase, she returns to Ordelia to assist her parents with governmental affairs.

War phase[edit | edit source]

Verdant Wind[edit | edit source]

Fulfilling the promise the Golden Deer class made five years prior, Lysithea reunites with her classmates in Chapter 13, arriving with Marianne and Raphael to rout bandits in the vicinity of Garreg Mach. After the battle, she commits herself to fighting back against the Empire alongside Byleth and Claude to seek revenge for her and her family's suffering at the hands of the Empire in the aftermath of the Hrym rebellion. She also hopes that the fall of the Empire will bring about a Fódlan where her parents can finally know peace.

With the Leicester Alliance's capture of the Great Bridge of Myrddin after Chapter 16, Lysithea returns briefly to Ordelia off-screen, convincing Count Ordelia, a key member of the pro-Imperial faction of the Alliance, to turn against the Empire, thus helping to unify the full might of the Alliance against the Empire for the coming battles. Though she fears for her parents' safety should the Empire defeat the Alliance and invade Ordelia territory, she resolves to press on her chosen path.

During Chapter 17, Lysithea notices strange masked mages dressed in black among the ranks of the Imperial Army. The evening after the battle, she approaches Byleth and Claude to inform them of her family's history with the Empire and these mysterious mages and of the blood experiments they conducted on her and her deceased relatives, warning them to be wary of these factions' alliance and their dreadful knowledge and power as Alliance forces prepare to advance deep into Imperial territory.

She learns of the existence of those who slither in the dark after the events of Chapter 20, identifying them as the ones who used her for their blood experiments and surmising that Edelgard was also one of their victims. She approaches the final battles with those who slither in the dark with particular fervor, seeking to obliterate them so that they can never again do to anyone what they did to her, her deceased relatives, and Edelgard.

Crimson Flower[edit | edit source]

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

If Edelgard was sided with and Lysithea was recruited, she decides to remain with her classmates, supporting Edelgard's notion of abolishing the hated Crest system (believing it to be created by the Church). She is worried about having to face Claude however, as she knows he is a good man and that he is simply trying to protect the Alliance.

If Lysithea has not previously been recruited, she can be seen in Chapter 14 and be killed in the battle, but it is entirely possible to save her by the arrival of the Alymryan navy by defeating Claude.

If she is fought and defeated by either Byleth or Balthus, there will be the option of either recruiting her or putting her out of her misery. If spared, she thanks them for giving her a second chance, though if killed, she apologizes to her parents in her dying breath.

Azure Moon[edit | edit source]

If the Blue Lions route was chosen and Lysithea was recruited during the Academy phase, then she will join Byleth and Dimitri at Garreg Mach at the beginning of Chapter 14. She joins the Kingdom army to remove the threat the Empire poses to her parents and to Ordelia, despite her apathy toward the Kingdom or her misgivings about fighting under the revenge-obsessed Dimitri, though she believes his obsession with Edelgard to be convenient for destroying the Empire as quickly as possible.

If Lysithea was not recruited during the Academy phase, she will appear alongside her allies from the Golden Deer during Chapter 17, where she may be killed during the three-way onslaught between the three houses. Claude will lament on her death if that happens, saying that she "burned too brightly, and faded too fast".

Paralogue[edit | edit source]

On any route aside from Crimson Flower, Lysithea's shared paralogue with Ferdinand, Retribution, will become available upon the capture of the Great Bridge of Myrddin. Ferdinand's father, Duke Aegir, is sighted in Hrym, and Lysithea will accompany Ferdinand to Hrym to ascertain the situation, as she is familiar with the territory and its history under the rule of Duke Aegir and Lord Arundel.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Though hailed as a prodigy, Lysithea is in truth an exceptionally hardworking student who desires to learn every day to improve herself to the maximum of her abilities. She states her skills do not come from a natural talent, but merely determination and intense application and dislikes when people refer to her aptitude as merely a natural talent. She seeks to develop her skills as a form of independence so she no longer has to burden her parents, whom she loves dearly.

As the youngest student at the academy at the moment, she dislikes when people treat her like a child or she feels they are doing so. She can be incredibly sharp-tongued when others annoy her or seem to be looking down on her. She is efficient with her time and is annoyed when others waste it, developing an impatience with those who even provide a minor inconvenience or hesitation.

Though she attempts to act like an adult, she is terrified of ghosts and can be easily riled up when the subject is brought up. Lysithea is extremely fond of sweets, primarily cake, referring to it as "divine essence of the heavens". She treats it as if it was currency, as shown in a conversation with Felix where she gives some to him to buy his silence.

Lysithea's impatience is mainly attributed to the horrifying experiments she endured from Those Who Slither in the Dark who implanted a second Crest in her. While she was one of the rare survivors of the procedure, it left her with an extremely shortened lifespan, her hair losing all pigment and was given only a few years to live by Imperial Year 1180. Her desire for independence and separation from her parents is in reality to spare them from having to witness her horrifying fate.

Compared to Edelgard, Lysithea is more open about her tragic childhood, revealing it to others in a majority of her supports. Due to this, she is also able to identify Edelgard as a victim of the same mages, despite Edelgard not telling her about her childhood.

Due to her shortened lifespan, Lysithea accepts her horrific fate, believing that she would have no place in it. In the supports in which lead to an ending which restores her lifespan, she realizes that her future is not set in stone, and resolves to fight on no matter what.

Her dual crests are a closely guarded secret and few, if any, are aware of it. She displays disdain for Crests as a whole and would rather have been born without her natural Crest. She also resents her peerage and willingly gives it up in most endings. In some endings, she is able to have her second crest removed, restoring her lifespan and living a happy ending. In others, she lives out a short, but happy and peaceful life.

Recruitment[edit | edit source]

Lysithea will automatically be recruited if Byleth chooses to teach the Golden Deer house in chapter 1.

If Byleth chose to teach any other house, Lysithea can transfer to their class if Byleth has a high enough Magic stat and a high enough Faith 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 Magic stat or Faith rank is not high enough).

Support Rank Magic Faith
None 15 B
C 12 C+
C+ 9 C
B 6 D+
B+ 3 D
A Any Any

Additionally, Lysithea can be recruited during the War Phase if she was not recruited in the Academy one, only if the player chose the Crimson Flower route. In chapter 14, Lysithea will appear as an enemy unit and, once defeated, Byleth will be given the option to spare or kill Lysithea. If spared, she will automatically join the party after the chapter is completed. If Balthus from the Ashen Wolves has been recruited into the Black Eagles, he can also speak to Lysithea and then to Byleth, opening up the chance to recruit her.

Overall[edit | edit source]

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.

Lysithea is the quintessential Mage glass cannon character, far outclassing her two female competitors Dorothea and Annette in terms of raw damage output thanks to having the highest Magic, Speed, and Dexterity of the three, meaning that she hits hard, is likely to double, and likely to launch Critical hits. To compensate for this, her other stats are abysmal. She possesses the worst HP, Strength and Defense growths and bases in the game as well as tied for the lowest Luck growth, meaning that she is likely to go down from a single hit (physical or otherwise, given her similarly horrid Resistance growth and base) if she is unable to finish her opponent, they are able to survive one of her attacks, or she is unable to dodge with her Speed and Dexterity.

Lysithea's low Strength might not seem like a major issue since she will primarily use spells, but due to how Strength is involved in Attack Speed calculations, she can often end up significantly slowed by her spells' Weight. Another very grave flaw is that Lysithea is quite slow to grow, and most of the times she'll get only two growths per level, making her a probable EXP sponge (thankfully she'll often get a point in Magic or Dexterity, so even if she only gets 2 points it will usually be the ones she wants). Additionally, her personal skill, Mastermind, makes her able to master skill proficiencies very quickly via combat (it does not affect the amount of skill EXP she gets from lectures or goals), letting her easily reach high-rank skills such as Dark Tomefaire.

Lysithea learns Dark Magic Reason spells (and is the only one outside of the Black Eagles and Ashen Wolves who learns Dark Magic), which typically have higher Mt than Black Magic and bonus effects, but at the cost of higher weight, lower Hit, and fewer charges. This comes with the downside of the Warlock and Mortal Savant classes only coming with Black Tomefaire, which does not work on any of her spells, and her inability to class as Dark Mage or Dark Bishop, meaning she has to either reclass into Dark Knight or wait until she ground out her reason rank in order to learn the skill naturally. During the level 20-30 transition, it is best to have Lysithea as a Bishop for growths, as it boasts higher growths than Warlock and Lysithea can benefit from all of Bishop's innate skills (unlike with Warlock); alternatively, Valkyrie or Dark Flier could be used, but they won't benefit her Magic growth as much (not at all in the latter case).

Dark Spikes Τ makes her especially potent against the Death Knight, often defeating him in one hit. She even has Hades Ω at her disposal, which has the highest Mt of any Reason spell in-game. She also has the Luna Λ spell, which lets her ignore Resistance and can either defeat or severely damage any enemy in one use, especially when her Magic stat gets high. Her Faith spells consist of the standard Heal and Nosferatu as well as the useful Seraphim for armor breaking and damaging Monsters, and Abraxas, the strongest Light spell in the game. Moreover, Warp, in tandem with her high Magic, means she has exceptionally high range to warp other powerful units across maps to kill bosses or other dangerous foes, and she can cast Warp twice per map as a Bishop or Gremory.

Lysithea has two Crests; a Major Gloucester and Minor Charon. The former is more beneficial to her as she is able to raise her Magic Mt when casting spells, while the latter boosts her effectiveness when using combat arts. Her Gloucester Crest allows her to use Thyrsus, extending her magic range by two and granting Pavise and Aegis for free, which goes a long way in offsetting her innate squishiness. It also allows her to use the Axe of Ukonvasara, but her low Strength serves little in using the axe and its only benefit is the increased health regeneration; ideally, Lysithea wants to avoid sustaining damage at all. Having a minor crest in Charon does not provide much for her as it boosts combat art damage, but none of which are particularly useful for her as she lacks Strength to deal significant damage with most of the Arts she learns. While she can use Thunderbrand's unique effect of potentially quad attacking enemies, the sword is best left in the hands of Catherine who is better suited. Though it is possible to have a Mortal Savant Lysithea use Thunderbrand's high innate Mt stat for the Soulblade combat art, which uses her magic and resistance stats, the latter of which will be boosted by the classes mastery skill. Since these attacks deal magical, sword, and combat art damage, Swordfaire, as well as both of her crests can potentially add to the damage.

Given her skill levels, Lysithea will make the most use of the Monk class family (Monk, Mage, Priest, Warlock, Bishop, Gremory), as they complement well with her magical prowess, with Gremory being the stand-out as it gives her extra uses for her spells and she should meet the class requirements naturally. Dark Knight needs her to grind out Riding and Lance skills, which is time-consuming but not impossible as the requirements are Lance rank C and Riding A. As she is neutral in Riding, with the help from her native skill Mastermind, and possibly a Knowledge Gem, she should be able to reach these ranks in time if the player grinds them out early (or uses the Rusted weapon training trick). Dark Knight also fixes another issue she might encounter, which is her painfully low movement. This can be offset somewhat by Dark Magic Range +1, Shoes of the Wind, and Thyrsus' range increase, but all of these stack even better on a mounted class. If the player also brings her Flying Skill to rank D (which isn't hard to do) she can promote into and master the Pegasus Knight class for Darting Blow, which offsets the weight problems of her spells at least during the player's phase. Alternatively, if one is preparing her for a mounted class, promoting to Paladin (requiring lance/riding B) will raise her base Strength up to 17, often giving a boost of 10 or more points to Strength, another way of offsetting weight issues. Finally on mounted classes, the DLC class Valkyrie, though lacking the power or base movement of Dark Knight, grants another Dark Magic Range +1, potentially raising her to a massive 6 range in combination with Thyrsus and her own range skill. The class also asks for the much more modest Reason/Riding B as well as only level 20 in comparison to Dark Knight. Moreover, its Uncanny Blow is arguably better as a Hit skill than Reason Prowess or Hit +20 as while it is not in effect within Enemy phase, Lysithea should never be left in range of an enemy by the end of a turn anyway. Further, it is neutral to the type of magic equipped, allowing her to better use the powerful Abraxas.

Her hidden proficiency with Swords gives her an extra option in certain magical weapons, namely the Levin Sword, along with easy access to the Myrmidon class family (Myrmidon, Mercenary, Thief, Swordmaster, Mortal Savant). However, the latter option is risky, as despite Lysithea possessing Speed growths fitting for the class family, her low base Strength and weakness for handling Swords means that it will require a bit of extra work if not using a magical sword. Putting some effort into it unlocks Soulblade which lets her deal a magic-based attack which receives a damage boost based on her Res. It is a powerful combat art and likely the only one worth equipping to her as her immense Magic will lead to high damage and the boost from her Resistance to its damage is a small, but sometimes appreciated boost to secure a kill. It is still worthwhile to get her the certification for Swordmaster or Mortal Savant (even if the classes go unused) to give Lysithea a Strength boost, as this will help her out in offsetting her spells' Weight, but acquiring such classes will usually require New Game+.

Overall, Lysithea is considered one of the most powerful characters in the game thanks to her sheer damage potential and good utility as a Warp user. When equipped with Thyrsus and the appropriate range-increasing skills, she is able to annihilate all but the most resilient of enemies from a safe distance. The only things she will need to worry about are Falcon Knights (which can quickly reach her and can generally survive a hit from her spells), Ballistas and Onagers (which can significantly outrange her), Grapplers (only on Maddening difficulty, as they carry Tomebreaker+), monsters with magic-immune barriers (though she will slaughter them once the barriers are dealt with), and enemies with Counterattack, as they are typically boss enemies whom she is unlikely to kill in a single non-critical hit attack (besides the Death Knight, who she can easily take out with a single use of Dark Spikes Τ).

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Lysithea joins Heroes just shortly after winning a spot in the Choose Your Legends Season 4 poll. Her stats leaves little to the imagination in terms of her role in Heroes which echoes her Three Houses role. She has insanely powerful offensive stats with a neutral 55 Atk with her personal tome plus 37 neutral Spd. In exchange, she is among the frailest units in the game with bulk in both categories that will lead to her demise if she ever is on the receiving end of an attack. Nonetheless, if her opponents do not get to her first, she will likely demolish them with little effort.

Hades Ω is Lysithea's personal tome and it is loaded with excellent offensive abilities. It accelerates her special cooldowns, which greatly enhance her overall offensive pressure by helping her charge her specials faster. If she initiates combat, not only does she gain a Swift Sparrow 2 effect, boosting her Atk/Spd by 4, she also will gain an additional 6 Atk if her special is ready. Without factoring further skills, this means that based on her tome alone and without merges, she can enter a battle dealing damage from a neutral 65 Atk stat.

Her remaining base kit is tailor-made to synergize with her tome as she has Moonbow to ignore enemy defenses and, thanks to her tome, it is on a one attack cooldown. She has Death Blow 4, granting her +8 more attack when initiating combat, thus bringing her player turn Atk to 73 when her special is ready to activate. Lull Speed Resistance neutralizes foe's bonuses to their Atk/Res from skills like Hones, Rallies, and Waves and then further inflicts Spd/Res -3 on them. Finally Time's Pulse grants her a special cooldown -1 effect if her Special is already charged, thus stacking on Hades Ω and can help keep her Special consistently charged and primed for her attacks.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Lysithea is essentially a double-edged sword when it comes to countering her. She is utterly terrifying during her turn, but during her enemy's turn, she is extremely vulnerable to a single attack by her enemy once exposed. Dealing with Lysithea boils down to mainly getting to her first before she can get to that unit. One could risk taking a hit through high Res units like Selkie or Legendary Julia as they have the magic bulk and the color advantage, but in some instances, she can essentially ignore the latter aspect and perhaps kill her in retaliation if they are able to survive her hit.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]

Lysithea essentially has everything made for her success in her base kit and only needs to inherit Draw Back to give her a support skill to work alongside her allies while also keeping an ally between herself and her would-be threats.

All other skill possibilities are purely to synergize with her Tome in a multitude of ways. Glimmer provides excellent synergy with her stats and if she has allies who can buff her, her raw damage increases from it increase. Swift Sparrow grants her some Spd in exchange for a small portion of her Atk to ensure she doubles on enemies who cannot counter-attack. Desperation or Special Spiral helps keep her hyper offensive playstyle going and leaves little room for her opponents to breathe comfortably.

Earnest Seeker
Daughter of Count Ordelia and noble of the Leicester Alliance. Her monastery experience allowed her to achieve much growth. Appears in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Base Set[edit | edit source]

Placing second for the women's division of the Choose Your Legend Round 4 is Brave Lysithea, the only non-lord of the winner's circle. In her Gremory garb, Brave Lysithea is a powerhouse Red Mage Infantry unit. 40 neutral Atk and 39 neutral Spd is nothing short of potent when it comes to launching powerful magical assaults. Though she is lacking in bulk overall, Brave Lysithea is generally unconcerned with this as she can outright obliterate an opponent before they can even counterattack. While she may not seem quite as impressive as the other three Brave Heroes of Round 4, Brave Lysithea is still worthy of attention and those who choose her for their free unit or claim a copy can still find great long term potential in the prodigy of the Golden Deer.
Dark Spikes T is perhaps Lysithea's most notable trait in Three Houses even striking fear in the Death Knight from as early as his first encounter. As any Three Houses player can expect, it still is a cavalry slayer weapon and thus Brave Lysithea can maintain her reign as the bane of the Death Knight and cavalry units in general. With a base +3 Spd increase as well, 40 base Spd or 47 under a Spd boon allows her to easily double a huge portion of the cast and avoid her fellow high-speed foes as well. At the start of combat, if her foe's HP is at least 75% or greater, she gains an additional Atk/Spd +6 buff and so long as she is not at full HP, if she initiates combat, she gains a Desperation effect, making her follow-up attack before her foe can counterattack. Brave Lysithea frees her Skill B as a result and can use other skills to her advantage and is ideally the first unit to engage on a foe just to reap the full benefits of her Tome, though with her frailty, recklessness is ill-advised.
Moonbow is a two attack charging special that allows her to ignore 30% of her foe's Res when it activates, giving her much more of a damage boost as a result. Atk/Spd Push 4 grants her +7 Atk/Spd during battle so long as she is above 25% HP. While she takes 5 recoil damage after battle, this only serves to jumpstart her tome's Desperation effect. Lull Speed Resistance inflicts Spd/Res -3, increasing her ability to double her foes and inflicts more damage, and also neutralizes their existing visible Spd/Res as well, leaving only her penalty active on her foe. Hone Spd 4 grants a visible Spd +7 buff to her allies adjacent to her at the start of her turn, giving her allies the chance of reaching high Spd tiers so they can double attack their foes.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Brave Lysithea's overall bulk is lacking and she can go down from most units if she is unable to get to them first. While it is difficult to score a double attack on her, many units can easily dispatch her with a single hit, especially on the physical side. High Res non-cavalry units can easily soak a hit from her like Groom Rafiel, Felicia, and Halloween Sakura and those who have high Spd like Fiora can take her hit and avoid a follow-up attack.

Skill Inheritance[edit | edit source]
Brave Lysithea's performance is best left during her turn as it gives her the most synergy with her Tome. A positional Assist Skill like Draw Back or Reposition are advised for her. Skills like Death Blow maximizes her Atk overall with a +8 Atk, though she does lose out on the recoil that gets her into Desperation range. Special Spiral can be considered as the special charge acceleration keeps her special primed after every round of combat. She can run Dragon Fang as her raw Atk value does provide a huge boost for it and Glimmer can be used if she is with allies who can provide her the buffs to truly unleash devastating damage. Joint Hone Attack or Joint Hone Speed provides her with a visible buff to her two strongest stats, thus improving her overall damage output.

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

Lysithea - Scholar of Misfortune

"Lysithea returned home to help her parents restore their family land. Years later, when the end to their hard work was finally in sight, she relinquished House Ordelia's claim to nobility, ceding the territory to a nearby lord. Shortly thereafter, she and her family disappeared into obscurity."

Lysithea and Byleth (Verdant Wind / Silver Snow)

"Byleth announced his engagement to Lysithea shortly after becoming leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan. Before they were officially wed, she returned home, helped her father to restore Ordelia territory, and offered the land up to be governed directly by the new kingdom. Once the affairs of House Ordelia were in order, Lysithea finally married and became queen. Even without her Crests, she proved more than capable in the role, applying her great insight and intelligence toward a better Fódlan. When the rebuilding effort was complete, the couple and their children enjoyed long and peaceful lives."

Lysithea and Byleth (Crimson Flower)

"Almost immediately after Byleth and Lysithea had celebrated their engagement, the struggle against those who slither in the dark began in earnest. Together they fought tirelessly to bring the war to an end so that Fódlan could have lasting peace. Afterward, they left the Imperial army for Ordelia territory, where they were officially wed. After restoring their war-torn land, the couple vanished from the public eye, along with Count Ordelia and his wife. No records remain of their lives after that, but it is rumored that they retired to a peaceful life in Derdriu, making sweets."

Lysithea and Byleth (Azure Moon)

"Byleth announced his engagement to Lysithea shortly after being named archbishop of the Church of Seiros. Before they were officially wed, she returned home, helped her father to restore Ordelia territory, and offered the land up to be governed by neighboring lords. Once her parents had retired and withdrawn, Lysithea finally became the archbishop's wife. Even without her Crests, she proved more than capable of assisting him in his role, applying her great insight and intelligence toward a renewed church. When the rebuilding effort was complete, the couple and their two children enjoyed long and peaceful lives in the lively household they built together."

Lysithea and Edelgard

"After the war, Edelgard and Lysithea threw themselves into the fight against those who slither in the dark. The struggle was long and arduous, but not without its benefits. With careful analysis of ancient techniques, they discovered ways to recover the years of life that had been stolen from them. Afterwards, the new Adrestian emperor and Lysithea, her trusted officer, devoted the rest of their lives to Fódlan's rule. For her counsel in instituting class reforms and ensuring the independence of the people, Lysithea came to be known as the Wisdom of the Empire. The pair of talented women ushered Fódlan into a new age of innovation and prosperity."

Lysithea and Claude

"Entrusting the future of Fódlan to his friends, Claude left for Almyra to reclaim his place as heir to the throne. When he became king, he asked Lysithea to be his queen with a heart full of love, and with the hope of fostering friendly diplomatic relations with Fódlan. Due to her shortened lifespan, Lysithea declined. Claude, unable to abandon his love for her, gave up the throne to go on a quest for a means to save her. Years later, he appeared suddenly before her, claiming to have found a cure. With her trust and love to guide him, he whisked her away, across the sea. It is unknown where they went."

Lysithea and Linhardt

"Though Linhardt researched vigorously for a method by which to remove the Crests from Lysithea and save her life, the war ended before he could reach any conclusions. Lysithea, deciding that she should return home to her parents, thanked Linhardt and took her leave of Garreg Mach. Not to be deterred, Linhardt set his affairs in order, renounced his noble title, and followed Lysithea to Ordelia territory to continue his research. Years later, his efforts bore fruit, and Lysithea's Crests were successfully removed. With a new future ahead of her, Lysithea, too, renounced her noble claim, and the couple married as commoners. It is said they raised a very happy family."

Lysithea and Felix (Azure Moon)

"After becoming Duke Fraldarius, Felix married Lysithea, who assisted his efforts to restore both his territory and the Kingdom at large with countless insights. She became known for walking among the people, sharing with them her wisdom. After her death, Felix received a visit from a local artisan, who brought to him a cake and claimed that Lysithea had given him the recipe. Felix adored the flavor, enjoying that style of cake for the rest of his days. The people acquired a taste for it too, and Lysithea's treat became traditional in the north of Faerghus."

Lysithea and Felix (Other routes)

"After the war, Felix abandoned his noble title and chose to make a living with his sword. He traveled the land, seeking battle as if he had a death wish, but his violent path came to an end when he happened upon Lysithea, who had been living in a small house in the middle of nowhere with her parents. Seeing her—condemned to live a shortened life, but smiling and making the most of every day with her family—convinced Felix that life was precious. He gave up his sword to join her, and the two spent their lives baking sweets. Lysithea's recipe became known far and wide, and the treat became a tradition for the people of that region."

Lysithea 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 Fódlan. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Lysithea. Though the only daughter of the former Count Ordelia had already renounced all claim to nobility, the people happily accepted their union. She rarely appeared in public, due to health concerns, but it is said that a great many policies credited to Lorenz were actually her ideas."

Lysithea and Raphael

"Raphael returned to his hometown to serve his liege lord as a knight, and spent his spare time helping out at the inn that his family had opened during his time away. Due to his grandfather's age, he was compelled before long to give up knighthood and manage the inn full-time. Soon after that, the inn began to be frequented by Lysithea and her family, who has renounced all claim to nobility and begun a life as commoners. Lysithea found a kindred spirit in Raphael's sister, Maya, and before long, found herself helping around the place too. Eventually she was put in charge of the kitchen, where it is said she spend the rest of her days happily baking."

Lysithea and Ignatz

"Lysithea returned home to help her parents restore their family land. Years later, when the end to their hard work was finally in sight, she relinquished House Ordelia's claim to nobility, and the family retreated from the public eye. In her new life as a commoner, she had a chance reunion with Ignatz, who had persuaded his family to allow him to travel the world as an artist. Lysithea became enchanted by his determination, and by the landscapes and portraits he painted of all he had seen in his travels. She offered the remainder of her short life in support of his work. It is said that Ignatz's most famous piece, Portrait of a Goddess, used Lysithea's face as a reference."

Lysithea and Hanneman

"After the war, Lysithea returned to her parents in Ordelia territory. She was joined by Hanneman, and together the two worked to research a method by which to extend her lifespan. Some years later, their efforts bore fruit, and they devised a procedure to remove her Crests. Afterward, Lysithea renounced her noble claim and continued to assist Hanneman with his research. When he passed, she took up his mantle, and by the great discoveries she made, came to be called the Golden Child of Crestology."

Lysithea and Cyril

"Lysithea returned home to help her parents restore their family land. Years later, when their work was at an end, she journeyed to Garreg Mach to inform the church of her decision to relinquish House Ordelia's claim to nobility. There she encountered Cyril, who had since graduated from the Officers Academy and joined the Knights of Seiros. During their reunion, Cyril confessed his love to Lysithea and asked her to marry him. She declined, at first, due to her shortened lifespan, but in the face of Cyril's insistence, she chose to spend what days she had remaining together with him. Where they went is unknown, but it is said that, for however long it lasted, they were happy."

Lysithea and Balthus

"Balthus accompanied Lysithea home to help her parents restore their family land, securing the aid of his younger brother, who happened to be lord of a nearby domain. Years later, when the end to their hard work was finally in sight, Lysithea relinquished House Ordelia's claim to nobility, ceding the territory to a nearby lord. Shortly thereafter, Balthus brought her and her family to Kupala, in Fódlan's Throat. There, they fell in love and lived peaceful, happy lives blending in with the mountain folk."

Non-Canon Appearances[edit | edit source]

Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)[edit | edit source]

Lysithea is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In Greek mythology, Lysithea was the daughter of Evenus and mother of Helenus by Zeus. Lysithea is also the name of one of Jupiter's moons. The name comes from the Greek words "lysis" ("loosening, unbinding") and "theos" ("god"). 

Cordelia is a feminine given name, popularly associated with the Latin word "cordis", meaning "heart". It was born by the tragic heroine of Shakespeare's King Lear. In the play, the character is initially unwilling to profess her love to her father, stating "Love, and be silent". Her two sisters who do – Goneril and Regan – are the basis of Hilda's and Claude's surnames.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lysithea possesses two Crests: a Minor Crest of Charon, and a Major Crest of Gloucester.
    • Catherine also possesses a Major Crest of Charon, and Lorenz also possesses a Minor Crest of Gloucester.
  • Despite being from the Leicester Alliance, Lysithea's Crest of Charon shares its name with a location in the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus.
  • Excluding Byleth, Lysithea is tied with Sylvain and Bernadetta for the highest number of support chains with 17 total.
    • However, in Lysithea and Bernadetta's case, this requires the player to purchase the Cindered Shadows DLC.
  • Lysithea shares traits with Ricken and Hayato from Awakening and Fates. All three are magic users who look like children but dislike being treated as children; yet still display childish traits such as being afraid of ghosts. Additionally, they all feature blue as a color in one of their portraits, though Lysithea only features it after the time-skip.
  • Lysithea uses a white color palette for her classes.
  • Lysithea stands at 148cm (or about 4’10”), growing to 160cm (or about 5’3”) after the time skip.
    • This makes Lysithea the shortest student during the Academy Phase.
  • Excluding Byleth, Lysithea is the only non-imperial character that can form a support with Edelgard.
    • Edelgard is also the only female character, excluding female Byleth, Lysithea can form an A level support with.
  • Lysithea, Bernadetta, Mercedes, and Yuri have the most Subjects Weaknesses, with a number of four.
    • However, Lysithea loses her weakness in Sword if she gains the Budding Talent, thus removing her from this category.
  • Lysithea shares her Paralogue with Ferdinand but, differently from the other characters with a shared Paralogue, the two cannot support. The same goes for Linhardt and Leonie, Caspar and Mercedes, and Anna and Jeritza.
  • Lysithea's A support with Byleth is the last to unlock during the Verdant Wind route, being unavailable until the beginning of Chapter 18.
  • In the base versions of the game, Lysithea incorrectly states to Byleth and Claude during the event "Mysterious Figures" in the Verdant Wind route and to Byleth during their A support conversation on the other routes that the Hrym Rebellion happened 13 years before the events of Part 2. In Update 1.2.0, this dialogue was corrected to indicate that the Hrym Rebellion happened 18 years before the events of Part 2.
  • Excluding the Cindered Shadows side story, Lysithea is the only character in Three Houses that has two entirely different base stats, one for being recruited at any point during the Academy Phase and one for being recruited in the Crimson Flower route if the former wasn't met.
  • Lysithea is one of the few characters to have a canonical Master Class when encountered as an enemy, that being the Gremory. She shares this distinction with Caspar, Sylvain, Ingrid, Seteth and Cyril.
