Annette Fantine Dominic (pronounced /ɑ'nɛt 'dɒmɪnɪk/[key]; Japanese: アネット=ファンティーヌ=ドミニク Annette Fantine Dominic) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is a student at the Officers Academy and a member of the Blue Lions.


Annette is the niece of Baron Dominic. After the Tragedy of Duscur, her father, Gustave, abandoned Annette and her mother in shame. Annette then chose to follow his father's lead as she suspected he could have moved into Garreg Mach Monastery. For this reason, Annette slowly made her way into the Officers Academy by entering Fhirdiad's School of Sorcery, obtaining good grades in order to get a recommendation for her desired destination. During this time, she met and became good friends with Mercedes. Annette enrolled into the monastery in Imperial Year 1180 and joined the Blue Lions house, studying and fighting alongside them.

If Annette is a member of Byleth's class, she returns to Garreg Mach Monastery on the day of the millennium festival and accompanies them throughout the war. If not recruited on the Silver Snow and Verdant Wind routes, she makes no further appearances in the story. If not recruited on the Crimson Flower route, Annette joins forces with the Church of Seiros to fight against the Black Eagle Strike Force in a burning Fhirdiad, as a last attempt to defeat the invading army once and for all; she can be circumvented or slain at the player's discretion.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Annette is a starting playable character for the Blue Lions route, a recruitable unit on the Black Eagles and Golden Deer routes and an enemy for Chapter 7 of non-Blue Lions routes and Chapter 18 of the Crimson Flower route should she not be poached during Part I.

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Annette is a primarily magic-focused unit possessing a strength in Reason, a high growth in magic, and low growths in HP, Defense, and Speed. Despite a sub-average speed growth, Annette's fairly lightweight spells prevent her from being doubled by most enemies in the early game; However, come part two or on higher difficulties, Annette's below average speed and low defenses will constantly put her in danger of getting one-rounded by enemies with relatively average speed stats. Moreover, Annette will often fail to double all but the slowest enemies limiting her offensive capabilities. As compensation Annette starts with the highest rank in Reason in the entire cast of students at a D+ allowing her to reach the rank to unlock Cutting Gale very early and deal high damage in the early game even if she fails to double the enemy. Annette also has access to Excalibur a lightweight and powerful spell that deals effective damage against Flying enemies. Annette manages to distinguish herself primarily by virtue of her amazing array of Rally skills. When Annette cannot reach the front lines, she can make use of her access to Rally Speed and her personal skill Perseverance, which is equivalent to Rally Strength, to buff her more mobile allies or prevent her allies from getting doubled on the enemy phase. In a pinch, an additional four strength—and the potential +1 to AS it can provide—can be the difference between life and death and since it is her personal skill, it comes at no opportunity cost. Rally Speed is very valuable throughout the game, so early investment to increase her Authority to a C+ will prove useful and will be achieved quickly thanks to her strength in Authority. Annette is also one of the few magic-oriented units that has access to Recover, further adding to her ability to support her allies.

One of Annette's biggest weaknesses is a lack of a 3-range option in her spell list; however, this can be mitigated by one of three pieces of equipment: The Caduceus Staff, Thyrsus, or a Bolt Axe+. The Caduceus Staff is the easiest to obtain, as it is a reward for finishing An Ocean View, accessed by recruiting Flayn which occurs automatically at the end of Chapter 6. Thyrsus is the most powerful, providing +2 magic range, though it is obtained from Lorenz's paralogue Land of the Golden Deer, meaning it requires recruiting Annette and Lorenz to the same house, a task made more difficult for the Black Eagles due to their differing requirements for recruitment (10 Magic and B in Faith for Annette, 20 Charm and C in Reason for Lorenz). A Bolt Axe+ is the most unconventional and likely the last option available outside of New Game +, requiring a Professor level of B+, 4 Arcane Crystals, 1,150 Gold, and Annette to have an Axe level of B; it is also the most flexible, as it allows Annette to make use of her high Magic outside of spell-using classes.

Annette possess a Minor Crest of Dominic which will occasionally preserve some uses of attack magic, meaning it will activate for both Faith and Reason spells. This crest will likely be most useful early game, when spells are a more limited resource, however, you will likely find as you progress through the game that you rarely run out of spells, if at all, as certain class skills double a unit's uses of their magic, rendering this crest's effect as largely irrelevant by the end of the game. Bearing a crest at all allows Annette to use Hero's Relics such as Thyrsus and Crusher without the 10-HP penalty suffered by non-crest bearers, and her Crest of Dominic also allows her to use Crusher's exclusive combat art, Dust. Unfortunately, Crusher is usually a bad offensive option for Annette. Crusher may be a Magic Weapon with high might but it is pitifully inaccurate with 60 Hit, is significantly heavier than most of Annette's spells at a weight of 11, and is locked to melee range. The weight of Crusher will often slow down Annette enough to get her doubled and killed if she misses or is left exposed on the enemy phase. The exclusive combat art, Dust, does add an enormous 20 might to Annette's attack and effectiveness against dragons, however, it adds no bonuses to the hit rate, leaving her just as susceptible to missing and immediately dying to the enemy's counterattack. The defense debuff Dust inflicts on the enemy is largely redundant as when you use the art, you will generally want the enemy to die from Annette's attack or be unable to counterattack. The only situation in which Dust should be used is against Monsters with high defense.

Annette's strengths lie in magic so it is best to pick magic-enabled classes for her promotion. Her best class promotion line is to start as a Monk, promote into a Mage and master the class to gain access to Fiendish Blow, then promote into a Warlock to maximize her magical damage output and double the uses of her spells. Her best master class is the Dark Knight as Black Tomefaire further increases her offensive capabilities and Canto allows her to rally her allies without falling behind and allows her to retreat to safety after attacking, rallying, or healing. Oddly, Annette also has a strength in Axes. While her strength growth is decent for a magic-oriented character, she will likely prove to be an unimpressive Brigand or Warrior as her subpar to poor growths in HP, Defense, and Speed leave her with little staying power on the frontlines. Annette can be a decent, though somewhat niche and gimmicky, Wyvern Lord with a high magic stat and decent strength and speed stats, though this is more so due to the class being excellent rather than anything Annette specifically has to offer. Additionally, class changing her into such classes forces her to abandon her far superior magic offensive options and any healing support she could offer as a magic-user. Annette's Axe rank should only be increased to gain access to the Bolt Axe and the Lightning Axe combat art and ignored thereafter.

Recruitment for Other Routes

When recruited in part 1, Annette comes having received tutoring in Authority and Reason.

The only special utility that sets Annette apart from the other magic-oriented characters such as Dorothea and Lysithea is her ability to rally speed, strength, and eventually movement as well as Recover, otherwise, Annette will largely fulfill the same role that the first mage character recruited in the Golden Deer and Black Eagles routes will provide while lacking access to Dark Spikes Τ, Thoron, Meteor, Physic, or Warp.

Keep in mind that when Annette is recruited outside of the Blue Lions route, she does not gain access to Crusher. The paralogue Crusher is obtained in is exclusive to Azure Moon, as unlocking it requires both Annette and Gilbert—an Azure Moon exclusive character—to be recruited and alive.

Fire Emblem Heroes


Annette is one of the characters added to the game in the Twisted Reality update, and became available for summoning by players on March 6, 2020. Only one variation of Annette is currently available in Heroes, based on her Three Houses Part I incarnation.

Main article: Annette/Supports


Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (single ending)
Annette returned to her hometown of Fhirdiad where she took up a teaching position at the Royal School of Sorcery. She was a gifted instructor, and many of her students went on to become world-renowned sages. Though her talent for teaching was remarkable in its own right, she was perhaps best remembered for effortlessly securing the trust and respect of her many students, as well as inspiring all who knew her by living a life of kindness, cheer, and humility.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Silver Snow, Verdant Wind)
After ascending the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced his marriage to Annette. His wife actively contributed to his endeavors, and it is said that her wisdom was heavily relied upon during Fódlan's restoration and development. Despite her lofty position, she was known to occasionally step in as a guest speaker at the Royal School of Sorcery, where she educated many renowned sages. Though her talents were widely respected, it is said she was always a bit accident-prone. Charming tales endure of her husband saving her from countless kitchen explosions, but it is unknown whether these are fact or purely fiction.

Byleth, Guardian of Order & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Azure Moon)
After becoming the new archbishop of the Church of Seiros, Byleth announced his marriage to Annette. His wife actively contributed to his endeavors, and it is said that her wisdom was heavily relied upon during Fódlan's restoration and development. Despite her lofty position, she was known to occasionally step in as a guest speaker at the Royal Academy of Sorcery, where she educated many renowned sages. Though her talents were widely respected, it is said that she was a bit accident-prone. Charming tales endure of her husband saving her from countless kitchen explosions, but it is unknown whether these are fact or purely fiction.

Byleth, Wings of the Hegemon & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Crimson Flower)
When the fighting was over and the Officers Academy was reopened, Byleth was reinstated as a professor. His wife, Annette, took on a position alongside him teaching sorcery, and the couple spent many years educating and guiding generations of students. In their later years, they attempted to retire to a quiet life in a village near Annette's hometown. That quickly proved to be too quiet of a life for them, and so they opened up a local school and resumed teaching. They continued on as educators until the end of their long and happy lives.

Dimitri, Savior King & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side every step of the way was his queen, Annette, whose wisdom provided not only reliable counsel, but a whole assortment of revolutionary policies. The royal couple's sincere approach to governance earned them widespread acclaim, securing their line as a dynasty that lasted for generations to come. Their married life was said to be full of love and cheer.

Claude, King of Unification & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
Entrusting the future of Fódlan to his friends, Claude left for Almyra with Annette, whom he intended to marry. He announced this fact to his father, the king of Almyra, who approved of Claude's growth and Annette's wisdom and resolved to entrust the monarchy to them. Once he became king, Claude established a school of sorcery with the intent to use it as a bridge between Almyra and Fódlan. Annette took on a role as headmaster, supporting Claude's dream by opening the doors to students from every corner of the world. Relations between Almyra and Fódlan improved drastically as a result.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
When the Officers Academy reopened after the war, Linhardt gave up his inheritance to take on a position as a professor there. He soon married Annette, who had taken on the same job, and side by side, they helped to educate the next generation of students. Unfortunately, Annette took her teaching duties far more seriously than Linhardt, who was more concerned with his Crest research, and developed a reputation for falling asleep—sometimes more than once—during his own lectures. In their first few years as a couple she fought desperately to correct his behavior, but later she learned to accept it, and even looked forward to finding creative ways to wake him up.

Caspar, Roaming Instigator & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Silver Snow, Azure Moon, Verdant Wind)
Annette returned to her hometown of Fhirdiad, where she took up a teaching position at the school of sorcery and mentored many great sages. Unfortunately, she remained prone to accidents, and one such event nearly took her life. Separated from her students in the mountains, she became totally lost—but just when it seemed she would never be found, she was rescued by none other than Caspar, who happened to be passing through on his travels around the world. After this lucky reunion, he escorted her to Fhirdiad, and during his time there, the two fell in love. The couple's fateful tale inspired a generation of young, starry-eyed students.

Caspar, Hotheaded General & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Crimson Flower)
In recognition of his achievements during the war, Caspar was given the title of Minister of Military Affairs in the new Adrestian Empire. Though he was well-known for his valor in battle, it was his wife, Annette, who reined in his recklessness and who truly kept the army in order. The troops came to see Annette as a motherly figure, and under her guidance, the Imperial army thrived. In their private life as a couple, the roles were totally reversed, as Caspar had to be the one to step in and correct Annette's various calamities around the house.

Dedue, Taciturn Devotee & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
Some time after the war, Dedue and Annette exchanged wedding vows in a modest ceremony and then settled down to a life in Fhirdiad. For them, life after marriage stayed much the same as before. Dedue continued his duty to King Dimitri, and Annette took up a teaching position at Fhirdiad's school of sorcery. Though each gave the other space for the work that was important to them, they made sure to spend much of their free time together, and to bond over the cooking and housework.

Felix, Meandering Sword & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Silver Snow, Verdant Wind, Crimson Flower)
After the war, Felix intended to abandon his noble title and make a living with his sword. On the day that he was to depart, however, he was waylaid by Annette, who begged him not to leave her behind. Instead, she proposed that they relocate to the Officers Academy when it reopened, and take up positions as teachers. When the school did reopen, it is said that the new sword instructor was notoriously harsh, but that he eventually learned to enjoy his work. He was seen to smile, on occasion, but only in the presence of the friendly professor of sorcery.

Felix, The Shield's Successor & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Azure Moon)
After the war, Felix inherited the title of Duke Fraldarius from his late father, Rodrigue. Some time later, he married Annette, and the pair earned renown together by working hard at restoring their territory to and beyond its former glory. The people adored the pair: Felix for his fierce determination, and Annette for her boundless cheer. Years later, Annette threw herself into songwriting, and with the support and encouragement of her husband, she produced melodies that remained popular for generations. The lyrics became distorted over time, however, and the original meaning of the music was lost.

Ashe, Arrow of Justice & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
After the war, Ashe was formally knighted and appointed the new head of House Gaspard, which had no successors. He married Annette, and the couple's combined tenacity, intelligence, and courage proved more than a match for the many difficulties they faced in governing. Together they helped Gaspard territory flourish more than it ever had before. From his lowly origins as an orphan, Ashe grew to become a splendid knight, much beloved by his people. After he passed, his story was immortalized in a book that was authored by his beloved wife.

Mercedes, Benevolent Soul & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Silver Snow, Azure Moon, Verdant Wind)
After the war, Annette and Mercedes lived separate lives: the former as a teacher at the school of sorcery in Fhirdiad, the latter as a cleric at Garreg Mach. Though they lived apart, they exchanged letters so frequently and shared their lives with one another in such detail that it was as though they were side by side. After many decades, they resigned their respective positions and reunited at Garreg Mach. In their final years, they relocated to a modest house in the Fortress City. It is said that they were happy together to the very end.

Mercedes, Benevolent Soul & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever (Crimson Flower)
After the war, Annette and Mercedes lived separate lives: the former as a teacher at the school of sorcery in Fhirdiad, the latter as the proprietor of an orphanage in a village in the Faerghus region. Though they lived apart, they exchanged letters so frequently and shared their lives with one another in such detail that it was as though they were side by side. After many decades, Annette decided to resign from her post and move to the village where Mercedes lived to help run the orphanage. The life they lived there was modest, but it is said that they were happy to the very end.

Annette, Bloomed Overachiever & Hanneman, Father of Crestology
After the war, Annette and Hanneman both accepted teaching positions at Fhirdiad's school of sorcery. There, while educating the next generation of mages, they made great strides in their research of Crests and magic. Working side by side, the pair—formerly teacher and student, now partners and colleagues—brought great progress to the world and prestige to their institution. It is said that the wait list for students to enroll in either of their classes was notoriously long.

Annette, Bloomed Overachiever & Gilbert, Veteran Patriot
Gustave discarded the name of Gilbert and reaffirmed his oath of fealty to King Dimitri and the royal family. After returning to Fhirdiad, he reunited with his wife, who had returned to live with Baron Dominic, and his beloved daughter, Annette, who had begun teaching at the capital's school of sorcery. Though it was initially an awkward reunion, over time the family rekindled their love for one another. As the shadow of war receded from the Kingdom, the three spent their days happily making up for lost time.

  • Unused dialogue indicates that Annette and Felix would have been able to betray Dimitri and be fought as enemies in Azure Moon Chapter 18, but this scenario was cut from the released version of the game.[2][3]
  • Disregarding enemy-only abilities, Annette has the Seal Speed ability as an enemy, which she cannot obtain as a playable unit.
