Fire Emblem: Three Houses Blue Lions Guide – All Characters, Abilities, Romance Options

Blue Lions House is part of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus located to the north of the continent. The group is led by Dimitri, heir to the throne. Wondering if you should pick the Blue Lions as your main house? Or maybe you just want to know all of its characters abilities to see if you want to recruit them? Our Fire Emblem Three Houses Blue Lions guide will let you know!

About The Blue Lions

In keeping with the Harry Potter comparison, the Blue Lions are a lot like Gryfindor. That is to say, they’re brave, reliable, and holier-than-thou as all get-out. Their leader is Dimitri, who much like Edelgard is next in line to the throne of his homeland. Said homeland is the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. Although, despite the very prim and proper look, Fire Emblem: Three Houses heavily hints at a darker side to this faction.

The Blue Lions signify risk and reward. They are up-close lance users that do tremendous damage. Naturally, they also have to close the distance a lot more than the Black Eagles or Golden Deer. Speed, positioning, and going for the kill whenever possible will make your life a lot easier as a Blue Lion. This is also why some folks say they’re the hardest faction in the game, but that’s pretty debatable.

Picking on alliance over another won’t lock you out of certain unit type, however! The Golden Deer, Black Eagles, and Blue Lions all have access to pretty much everything in the game. You can also switch various characters to other unit types. Many Three Houses characters don’t even start out as their very best class! Not to mention you can recruit units from the other houses — eventually. You should experiment.
