“You are my king. Our king. Wherever you lead, we will follow. But Your Highness... There are those who take up their sword in the name of revenge, yet along the way, lose the strength and composure to follow through... You would do well to bear that in mind.”
—Rodrigue

Rodrigue is a character from Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. He is a lord of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus, a childhood friend of the late King Lambert, and the current head of House Fraldarius. He is also known to be a magnificent warrior, and is called the "Shield of Faerghus." Felix is his surviving son and heir. He possesses a minor Crest of Fraldarius.

Profile[]

Roughly twelve years ago, Rodrigue served as the right hand of the king of Faerghus during a military campaign in Sreng. In Imperial Year 1176, his eldest son, Glenn, was slain during the Tragedy of Duscur alongside his old friend Lambert and many others. Rodrigue believed that Glenn had died an honorable death in service to the king, but this strained his relationship with his remaining son Felix, who mourned him for the bond that they shared, and believed that Rodrigue did not care for his eldest son at all.

He is on good terms with Lambert's son Dimitri, who sees him as a surrogate father.

Three Houses[]

Academy Phase[]

In Imperial Year 1180, Rodrigue is sent to Garreg Mach Monastery on behalf of Matthias to retrieve a stolen Hero's Relic belonging to House Gautier.

War Phase[]

Rodrigue, as well as Gilbert and Dedue, fight alongside Dimitri during the three-way battle against the Adrestian Empire and the Alliance Army, where he meets his fate. The following night, Dimitri reunites with Byleth and mourns his comrades' deaths, and says that Byleth's response reminds him of Rodrigue. The following month, should he be recruited, Felix grieves over his father's death. Towards the end of the route, Felix mentions he intends to return to former Faerghus territory to pay respects to Rodrigue and put flowers on his grave.

Following Dimitri's self-exile, Rodrigue is one of the few nobles who continue to support the true king. This prompts Cornelia to send troops to crush the "rebellious" nobles, and Rodrigue is barely able to get by. Upon hearing that Dimitri has re-emerged and is on the move, he steals Areadbhar from one of Cornelia's lackeys and sends a letter to him, telling him to meet at Ailell, as it was halfway between Garreg Mach and Fraldarius territory, where he could provide them with soldiers. Upon arriving, they are ambushed by soldiers from House Rowe, led by Gwendal. They are able to rout the enemy, where Rodrigue is slightly disturbed by Dimitri's change in personality, but hands him Areadbhar. He then states that he wishes to fight by his side, much to Felix's surprise as there would be no one to oversee their territory. Rodrigue informs him that he had anticipated this, and gave it to his younger brother.

After securing the Great Bridge of Myrddin, Rodrigue finds a Kingdom general and a young maiden requesting to join the army. He asks the two what is going on, and the general responds that the maiden wants to join. Rodrigue refuses her offer, finding her too young, and tells the general to return her to her parents. The maiden states that she has no family, and that she wants revenge on the one who killed her big brother. Dimitri then comes in and states that she can do whatever she pleases, so she ends up joining the army.

Following the battle of Gronder Field, the maiden arrives onto the battlefield, much to Rodrigue's surprise, and attacks Dimitri after blaming him for the death of her brother. Dimitri feels as if he should deserve to die, but Rodrigue, seeing his king in danger, leaps in the way and takes the fatal blow, allowing Byleth to cut the maiden down. This act of self-sacrifice reawakens Dimitri's consciousness, who believes that he deserved to die for what he had done. Rodrigue absolves him of his guilt, stating that he must no longer be shackled to the past and that he resembles his late father Lambert before dying of his wound.

He is later buried at Garreg Mach Monastery, although temporarily as Ingrid stated that there was no time for a proper burial. It's suggested that he was returned to Fraldarius territory once the war was over and given a proper burial there. Though Felix mourns his father's death, he tells Byleth that if Rodrigue had seen how much Dimitri had done, he would have been proud of him.

Though he does not appear in this route, it is suggested that Rodrigue was killed, as Felix states that his father's silence was abnormal. In the end, his ultimate fate is left unknown.

Rodrigue remains in Arianrhod with Cornelia. Upon learning that Imperial forces are headed their way, he expresses worry as he had sent troops to assist Dimitri in defending the kingdom, and wonders why the Imperial Army is coming to them. Cornelia, who is actually a member of Those Who Slither in the Dark, knows the true reason but refuses to disclose it to him, stating that her "children" will be ready to greet the attackers.

He falls in battle defending the city, alongside Felix if he was not recruited. If Felix is still alive when he is defeated, he vows to fight in his father's stead. If Felix falls first, then Rodrigue will swear to avenge him. If Felix was recruited into the Black Eagle Strike Force and battles him, Rodrigue shows disgust at his son's actions and vows to kill him to rectify his failure.

Warriors: Three Hopes[]

Rodrigue arrives at Garreg Mach Monastery, and informs Dimitri's that his uncle Rufus has seized control of Fhirdiad and is orchestrating a purge of House Fraldarius under the pretense of trying to stop them from installing Dimitri as a puppet.

After the succession crisis is resolved, Rodrigue resigns from his post as Duke Fraldarius in order to act as a target for the people's ire, appoints Felix as his successor, and agrees to work with Dedue to make repartitions to Duscur.

Personality[]

Rodrigue, despite his titles and prior role of right-hand man to King Lambert, does not think highly of himself. He cares greatly for his sons and expressed pride that his eldest son, Glenn, died as a knight. However, this statement caused a rift with his younger son Felix, who interpreted the phrase as him not caring for Glenn at all. In truth, Rodrigue is plagued with regrets over Lambert and Glenn's death and does his bet to cope with the harsh reality that he was not there to intervene. However, he finds solace from his regrets through believing that Glenn died standing up for his ideals and without regrets. At the same time, he freely admits that Felix's bitter feelings over Glenn's death and his reactions are justified and sometimes he feels his acceptance is shallow.

Rodrigue provides council to Dimitri in both Three Houses and Three Hopes during the war phase, partially to make amends towards Lambert. In Azure Moon, he provides supportive guidance despite Dimitri's vengeful state, channeling the prince's wrath into practical action for the greater good. Rodrigue valiantly sacrifices himself to protect Dimitri from a similarly vengeful Fleche, thereby fulfilling his self-made promise to Lambert and offers a final piece of guidance to Dimitri, helping to clear him of his vengeance and steer him in a better direction for the sake of Faerghus and Fódlan as a whole.

Etymology[]

Rodrigue is a French name meaning "famous power/ruler." It originated from the ancient Germanic Hrodric and came to the French language through the Latin Rodericus. The name Achille likely refers to the Greek Hero Achilles who fought in the Trojan War.

Fraldarius may be an attempt to convert Fleur-de-lis, a French symbol associated with royalty, into a surname, as Fraldarius is written as "Furarudariusu" in Japanese, and Fleur-de-lis is "Furuuru do risu".

Trivia[]

  • Rodrigue shares his voice actor Jake Eberle with Haar and Caineghis in Heroes.
  • In a survey conducted by Famitsu Magazine, Rodrigue placed 17th for males and 33rd overall with 104 votes in the character popularity poll for Three Houses.
  • Oddly enough, during the Ambush at Ailell, Rodrigue has Sword Prowess Lv 3, although he doesn't wield any sword during the battle or in any battle to begin with. Plus such weapon isn't required to master in order to become a Holy Knight, questioning the meaning of the ability even more.
    • While not confirmed, it might be because if talked with Byleth, Rodrigue will give them the Sword of Moralta.
  • The reason why Byleth didn't use the Divine Pulse to save Rodrigue in Azure Moon is currently unknown. Some possible reasons may be that they had used up all the Pulse's charges at that point or they knew that his sacrifice would return Dimitri to his senses.
  • Ironically, despite calling himself the 'king's shield' during Crimson Flower, Rodrigue won't have a shield equipped, unlike in Azure Moon.
  • Rodrigue and Volkhard can be considered opposites.
    • While Rodrigue is fought only in Crimson Flower, Volkhard is fought only in Azure Moon.
    • Rodrigue follows the Kingdom, while Volkhard follows the Empire.
    • Rodrigue serve as the paternal figure of the Kingdom's heir, while Volkhard serve as the paternal figure of the Empire's heir, although his relationship with her is now bitter. Both sheltered them after tragedies affecting their respective countries.
    • Rodrigue is a Holy Knight, while Volkhard is a Dark Knight.
    • Rodrigue is fought during the defense of a fort, while Volkhard is fought during the assault on a city.
    • Rodrigue is deeply loyal to the Kingdom, while Volkhard will ultimately betray the Empire.
  • In Three Hopes, Rodrigue is the only male character who can learn Essence of Light, marking him as the opposite of Petra, who is the only female character who can learn Essence of Wind.
  • In Three Hopes, Rodrigue is the fourth character in Fire Emblem series who can leave the roster after they are recruited if certain conditions are not met. He will end up getting killed by Byleth if they and Jeralt are not recruited. The first three examples are Jill in Path of Radiance, Zihark in Radiant Dawn and Kaze in Fates.
    • Additionally, Rodrigue is the only playable character who dies if Byleth and Jeralt are not recruited as the other two in Golden Wildfire and Scarlet Blaze are allies.
  • Rodrigue holds the dubious honor of leaving the army the most out of all units in Three Hopes, being absent in Chapters 7, 10, and 12 onwards for good if Byleth and Jeralt are not recruited.
