Sitri is a non-playable character from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is the late wife of Jeralt and the mother of the protagonist Byleth.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Sitri was a nun at Garreg Mach Monastery. Due to her weak constitution, she rarely left the monastery. She was good friends with the monk Aelfric. The captain of the Knights of Seiros, Jeralt Eisner, would often talk to Sitri after missions and recount tales of old, much to her wonder. Eventually, the two fell in love and married.

Sitri became pregnant with Jeralt's child, and gave birth to Byleth on the 20th of the Horsebow Moon 1159. However, shortly after their birth, she mysteriously died. Her body was buried in the monastery cemetery and Jeralt took her wedding ring, holding onto it as a keepsake in order to give to Byleth one day when they wished to settle down and find a spouse of their own.

In reality, Sitri was the twelfth vessel created by Rhea in order to act as a host for the Crest of Flames in order to revive her own mother, Sothis. Like her predecessors, Sitri was unable to awaken the power of the crest, leading to her frail health. Rhea developed quite the affection for Sitri despite the circumstances behind her "creation", viewing her as an adoptive daughter; in return, Sitri considered Rhea her mother figure.

After giving birth to Byleth, she soon discovered that her child lacked a heartbeat. Out of concern for her child's life and already on death's door herself, she pleaded to Rhea to implant the Crest of Flames Crest Stone into Byleth. Rhea obliged and the transplant was a success, but the removal led to her untimely death. Her demise caused a rift between Rhea and both Jeralt and Aelfric, though neither outwardly expressed their newfound distrust in her.

Sitri was never actually buried in the monastery cemetery. Rhea herself could not bear to bury her and instead entombed her in Abyss. According to Rhea, she had frequently visited her body.

Ten years prior to the events of Three Houses, Aelfric discovered her body while exploring Abyss. Having heard of the Rite of Rising, he desired to enact the ritual in order to revive Sitri. As he scoured Fódlan for the descendants of the Four Apostles, he eventually found four individuals, each one bearing one of the necessary crests and inducted them into the Ashen Wolves.

In the year 1180, he enacted his plan and had them recover the Chalice needed for the rite. Additionally, he forced Yuri to be his accomplice via first engineering the incident that forced him into Abyss, then kidnapping his still-living mother.

He performs the ritual, but it ultimately fails due to the intervention of Byleth and the Ashen Wolves, and especially Yuri who did his best to counter Aelfric's own plans. The ritual instead causes the Chalice of Beginnings to absorb himself and Sitri's corpse, causing Aelfric to become an Umbral Beast.

Despite its power, Byleth and their students quell the beast. Sitri's body is recovered and finally given a proper burial.

After returning to the monastery, Jeralt takes Byleth to their mother's grave. Byleth can choose to come and visit Sitri's grave on their free day. Time possibly has weathered her name away from the gravestone, leaving it unreadable, but if the Cindered Shadows storyline has been completed, her name can be read on the stone.

After Jeralt's death, his body is buried with his wife. Byleth searches Jeralt's study as he instructed them to do so in wake of his death. They find Sitri's wedding ring in Jeralt's room and a note encouraging Byleth to give the ring to someone special when they wish to settle down one day.

The week before the final battle of all four routes, Byleth visits Sitri and Jeralt's grave to mentally prepare for the upcoming battle. Reflecting on Jeralt's final message and thinking about their treasured allies, thoughts of a particular member of the army may come to Byleth's mind. After their victory, they meet that treasured ally and confess their love to them, gifting them Sitri's ring as promised to Jeralt.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Sitri was a gentle soul, known for her fondness for books and flowers. Like her child, Sitri had difficulty expressing herself. Because of her poor health that practically confined her to the monastery, she was fascinated by the tales of the rest of the world. Jeralt's storytelling abilities delighted her, which eventually blossomed into a deep affection for him. Aelfric noted that her most emotive moments were when she was looking at Jeralt. She was also close to Rhea, whom she treated as a mother and in turn, Rhea deeply cared for Sitri.

Sitri had powerful maternal instincts, as even in her critical state after giving birth to her child, her only thoughts were to grant her child life, even at the cost of her own. Her death became a driving force for many important individuals in the Three Houses and Cindered Shadows stories as she was well-beloved and fondly remembered.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Sitri is the 12th demon mentioned in the Ars Goetia. He is Great Prince of Hell, and reigns over sixty legions of demons. He causes men to love women and vice versa, and can make people bare themselves naked if desired. He is depicted with the face of a leopard and the wings of a griffin, but under the conjurer's request he changes into a very beautiful man. This is in line with her child Byleth, who also shares the name with the 13th demon of the Ars Goetia.

  • Like the proper Children of the Goddess, Sitri is shown to have green hair and hide her ears, signifying her nature as a dragon. Even her body not rotting is similar to the Heroes' Relics, as the bones and muscles used for specific weapons like Failnaught are shown to still function despite a thousand years passing.
