“You throw yourself vigorously into the fray to help your friends, yet also keep a tight grip on the strings of your purse. You would make for a fine civil servant, if you ever had the inclination.”
—Waldemar to Shez

Waldemar, also known as Count Hevring, is a mentioned character in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and a non-playable character in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. He is the Minister of Domestic Affairs in the Adrestian Empire and the head of house Hevring. He possesses a minor Crest of Cethleann and is the father of Linhardt.


In 1171, Waldemar got involved in the Insurrection of the Seven, in which several Imperial nobles seized power from Emperor Ionius IX after the latter pushed reforms which would consolidate the power to himself.

It is implied in Three Houses, and later confirmed in Three Hopes, that Waldemar, along with Leopold, Duke Gerth, Volkhard, and other nobles involved with the Insurrection of the Seven made a deal with Edelgard behind Ludwig's back, which would allow the Imperial princess to ascend the throne in due time with no intervention from Ludwig and others, while also letting her assume the Empire's upcoming conquest against the Church of Seiros and later, the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and the Leicester Alliance, in which Waldemar provided her access to the Empire's finances.

Three Houses[]

After Edelgard's ascension, Waldemar is pardoned of his involvement in the Insurrection and allowed to contribute to the war effort.

Three Hopes[]

After Monica is rescued and "Tomas" is driven out of Garreg Mach Monastery, Waldemar and Leopold are contacted by Edelgard about her sudden coup against Ludwig and Volkhard with the support of the Knights of Seiros, and both men agree to support her efforts by blocking Ludwig's escape during Edelgard's strike while also fighting against his and Volkhard's forces. With Ludwig's capture and Volkhard/Thales' escape, Waldemar and Leopold resume their negotiations with the soon-to-be Emperor, and start making preparations for a prolonged war against the Central Church.


Waldemar's character is alluded to in Three Houses, and Three Hopes gives him screen time and a more prominent role in the plot. Waldemar is vainglorious, proud of both his position and intellect. He and Leopold have never been able to get along; although he greatly values the Count, and the two have been friends since childhood, his pride forbids him from overtly showing it.

He's quite focused on preserving his house and continuing the bloodline, which has put unwelcome pressure on his son Linhardt; as an only child, Linhardt worries that his father will produce or adopt another child if he fails to have offspring of his own or doesn't carry on the family title. This aside, Waldemar is implied to be a neglectful father, not having much of a presence in or impact on his son's life.

Waldemar shares Linhardt's penchant for dry sarcasm.
