“You clearly need every blade you can find, and my pockets have been feeling awfully light lately. What do you say?”
Shez, to Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude

Shez is the protagonist of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. As an Avatar, their name and gender is determined by the player at the start of Three Hopes.

Unlike Byleth, Shez is not a silent protagonist.

Profile

Shez was born in a remote mountain village in Leicester, within Ordelia territory. Their biological parents died when Shez was too young to remember them, and Shez was subsequently adopted by a woman who raised them to maturity before she passed away as well. Shez turned to a career in mercenary work, eventually entering the service of Captain Berling.

In 1179, after a brief dream about the War of Heroes, the mercenary Shez takes part in a battle with a rival mercenary company led by Jeralt and the infamous Ashen Demon. Shez's comrades are wiped out, and Shez themselves are nearly killed battling Byleth. As Byleth prepares to execute them, Shez suddenly hears a mysterious voice and is granted overwhelming power. However, this new power is still not enough to defeat Byleth, who leaves them alive after Jeralt completes their mission and orders a retreat. Afterwards, Shez collapses and meets the bearer of the voice, Arval, in a vision. Arval explains that they are the only thing keeping Shez alive and that in their current state, they stand no chance against Byleth. Shez vows to train themself to exact revenge.

Six months later, while training to seek revenge for their defeat, they chance upon Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude in the woods being chased by bandits led by Kostas and help the group. In the aftermath, Shez is dumbfounded to learn that they just rescued the heirs to the three great nations of Fódlan. Alois and the nobles insist that Shez accompany them back to their camp for their reward, where Shez meets several Officers Academy faculty and students while Alois strongarms Shez to come to Garreg Mach Monastery to be paid their reward.

Afterwards, Shez is taken to the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery, where they are brought before the Archbishop Rhea, who allows them to enroll in the Academy as a student in the Black Eagles, Blue Lions or Golden Deer, with the instructor Jeritza taking charge of Shez's house. Regardless of the house chosen, Shez's monthly mission is to mop up the survivors of Kostas' bandits. As Shez and their companions wipe out the bandits, they discover a captive Officers Academy student and rescue her from both the surviving bandits and an unidentified faction. With the captive student introducing herself as Monica, she then names the librarian Tomas as her abductor, who displays similar powers to the ones granted to Shez by Arval before fleeing arrest.

As Shez and Arval brood over their connection to the mysterious group, depending on the class chosen, Shez either assists with the coup in Adrestia, helps resolve a succession crisis in Faerghus or repels an attempted Almyran invasion of Leicester, and Edelgard, Dimitri or Claude convinces Shez to accept a post as an officer in their respective militaries.

Though it is never stated outright, it is implied that Shez is either of Agarthan descent or in some manner related to the Agarthan people. They were born to be the latest vessel of Arval, who was in turn the creation of an Agarthan named Epimenides, who harbored a strong hatred of Sothis. Arval's true purpose is to guide Shez and keep them alive until such time that they may take revenge on Sothis, who at this point in time lives on within Byleth. However, despite this apparent connection, and their sharing the same powers, Shez is an unknown quantity to Those Who Slither in the Dark, who consistently react to Shez's presence with curiosity and confusion.

Should Shez succeed in recruiting Byleth and the rest of Jeralt's Mercenaries to their side in the war, Shez becomes possessed by Arval/Epimenides, who attempts to take Byleth by surprise and kill them while they are alone together. When the assassination attempt is thwarted, Epimenides instead sacrifices Solon in order to banish Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude to Zahras so that they can no longer hinder their plans. Shez awakens in Zahras as well, and finds that Arval is no longer in their mind.

Working alongside the three royals, Shez fights against Epimenides. The battle concludes with Shez striking the killing blow, bringing an end to Epimenides, and by extension, Arval. Returned to Fódlan, Shez rejoins their army in order to continue the war.

Personality

A bonafide mercenary through-and-through, Shez takes work wherever they can get it, so long as they are properly compensated. While loyal to coin in exchange for their services, Shez states that they will fulfill their countract with an employer and will not leave their current mission even if they are offered a much better deal from another. Their reasoning behind this, according to their support with Petra, is a means to establish integrity to their reputation, thus drawing more people to hire them due to their strong work ethic and determination to finish a job.

Extremely blunt and headstrong, Shez is straightforward with their feelings and is rather open about talking about their thoughts and sharing their past. Their first true connection was with their adoptive mother, whom they remember fondly as she is the one who raised Shez and taught them much of the world. Since her passing, Shez never made any strong connections to others, not even the mercenary group they are first seen with at the start of the Three Hopes story. It is only after enrolling in the Officer's Academy do the start to find true comraderie in their classmates, mainly with their house leader. By the war phase, they have become one of their house leader's most loyal followers and have come to truly believe in their vision of the future of Fódlan. Unlike Byleth who takes on a more advisory role in their relationship with the house leaders, guiding them through their turmoils, Shez is more of an ardent supporter to them, helping to carve out a path for their goals and protecting them during the heat of battle.

They are not without their faults and quirks as they have a rather terrible sense of direction with their bio even stating that they dislike reading maps. It is also something of a joke amongst their classmates as they once got into a mock battle after getting lost on their way back to the monastery. Their newfound power after establishing their bond with Arval leads them to be a bit reckless in many situations and formulate outright absurd ideas for the sake of getting stronger. Arval notes that between the anihilation of their mercenary group and their chance encounter with the Church of Seiros, there were at least twenty-two instances in the span of six months that Arval had to intervene to save the both of them, three of which Shez jumped off a cliff to "get tougher." As noted by Hilda, Shez has a tendency to rush into the thick of battle without hesitation, often leading them into extremely dangerous groups of enemies on a battlefields. Shez admits that part of this is due to their mercenary days as they needed to build prestiege and a reputation to draw in clients.

Shez/Quotes

Etymology

Shez can be interpreted as an Arabic saying for Happy and Joyful. Shez could also be derived from the word Shahzad, Persian for 'Son of the king' or 'prince.'

Shez may also be derived from Shax, also known as Shaz, a Great Marquis of Hell in the Ars Goetia, matching Byleth's connection to the Ars Goetia in their naming scheme.

Trivia

  • Shez stands at 170cm (or about 5'6").
  • Shez shares their male voice actor, Damien Haas, with Saul, and their female voice actress, Dawn M. Bennett, with Ullr, both in their appearance in Fire Emblem Heroes.
