“I gave up hope once, but now that my life is my own again, I will not be stopped.”
Monica in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Monica is a character from Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. She is a student of the Garreg Mach Monastery Officers Academy and a member of the Black Eagles. She possesses a minor Crest of Macuil and is 18 years old at the start of the game.


Monica was born as the eldest daughter of the adopted son of Baron Ochs in Imperial Year 1161, her father inheriting the title of Baron Ochs in 1171. She was enrolled as a student at the Garreg Mach Monastery Officers Academy in 1179 as a member of the Black Eagles, but vanished shortly before graduation, leaving many with the impression that she ran away.

It is revealed that Monica was, in fact, captured by the Death Knight. Byleth rescues her right along with Flayn during the events of Horsebow Moon in 1180, and Monica is allowed to re-enroll in the Black Eagles so she may finish her education.

In reality, the Monica encountered in the story is none other than Kronya in disguise. The real Monica's whereabouts are not known, though Seteth surmises that she was likely killed so Kronya could freely masquerade as her to infiltrate the monastery and serve as a liaison between the Agarthans and Edelgard, although this is never definitively proven. Her father appeared to have known of her fate sometime later, but was under the belief that she was still alive and desperately tried to bring her back.

Three Hopes[]

In early 1180, Monica is discovered as Shez and their classmates are mopping up the survivors of Kostas' band of thieves and rescue her. Monica then identifies Tomas as her kidnapper and rejoins the Black Eagles.


Monica is playful, extroverted, and casual in her interactions. Several students note that she is much more cheerful, overly so, than prior to her disappearance. Hilda, who knew Monica from the year before, believes that she is acting this way to pretend she is okay after the ordeal. She also appeared to have a good relationship with her father, and insists on calling Edelgard 'Edel'.

In reality, this is merely Kronya's own personality peeking out while impersonating Monica, which the other students mistakenly believe this shift in personality as a means to cope with her kidnapping.

In Three Hopes, Monica is depicted as fond of Edelgard and trying to do everything in her power to be of service to her and curry her affection, much to Edelgard's own confusion. Her supports also make it clear that she is jealous of Shez and Hubert for how close they are to her, and disagrees with the latter often, only finding common ground in their subservience to Edelgard. Ironically, some of her tastes are the opposite of Edelgard's, as Monica dislikes sweets but loves to swim, especially in the sea near her home, whereas Edelgard cannot swim.

Although she seems largely unfazed by the experience, Monica does sometimes wonder just how much her death might have affected things while also becoming determined to laying waste to her kidnappers to any available opportunity, as shown in her paralogue with Bernadetta, particularly showing pleasure in getting the chance of payback at Kronya.

Monica often boasts of her capacity to remember everything she sees, which is reflected in both the war effort and her personal ability. She uses this ability to record minute details of Edelgard's life during the war effort to an obsessive degree.

She is also a big fan of Dorothea, whose concerts she used to attend when she was younger.

Monica will automatically be recruited once she's freed from captivity during chapter 2 and is playable in the following chapter, but only if Shez has joined the Black Eagle house. If they joined the Blue Lions or Golden Deer instead, Monica would be a one-off non-playable friendly unit.

Monica will only be playable during Azure Gleam and Golden Wildfire through the Record Keeper during a New Game+ file, as long as that file has completed Scarlet Blaze data.

Monica is a name of North African origin, most often associated with Saint Monica, mother of Augustine of Hippo, one of the main theologians and philosophers of the late Roman period. The name’s original meaning is uncertain, but since the Middle Ages, it has been associated with the Latin moneo, meaning "I advise" or "I warn", and the Greek monos, meaning "one".


  • Monica's height in Three Hopes is consistent with unused data present in Three Houses.
  • Monica shares her English voice actress, Colleen O'Shaughnessey, with Kronya and Nagi as she appears in Heroes.
