The Noble is a class that debuted in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
History in the Series
It is a counterpart to the Commoner class as well as the starting class of some of the various students of the Officers Academy. Storywise, this class is granted to those of highborn birth, ranging from minor houses to high royalty.
Noble is one of two base classes available to every unit in the game; compared to Commoner, Nobles posses a 5% growth in Charm. Regardless, there is little reason to keep a unit in this class, as the lack of growths elsewhere benefits none of the units with access to Noble, and the HP +5 skill makes little difference for any unit. It should also be noted that almost every other class in the game has equal or better Charm growth in addition to other growths.
Nobles have access to various weapon types and even movement types, (such as Mounted, Flying, etc.) that they can advance through via training. To promote to a base class, they must first rank up the required skill categories and pass the certification exam for the desired class.

- Claude - Grandson of Leicester Alliance's current leader and its current heir. An easygoing, yet skilled strategist whom you cannot let your guard down around.

- Lysithea - The heir apparent of House Ordelia. A prodigy with magic who bears two crests. She is the youngest student in the academy currently.
- Marianne - The adopted daughter of the Margraviate of Edmund. Bears the dubious Crest of the Beast and has low self-esteem due to the people's wariness of her crest's reputation.

- Constance - The only known survivor of House Nuvelle, a noble house of the Adrestian Empire, and very driven in restoring its name. She becomes extremely gloomy and depressed if exposed to the sun.
- In footage broadcast during Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation, the Noble class was instead called Aristocrat.
- The appearance for Nobles is unique to each character. For the students, it will also change during the story five years later, being the model chosen for each of the characters' "default" advanced/master classes outside of being in (such as the Archer/Sniper class for Bernadetta) as though the option to wear monastery wear in battle is turned on for them.
