Linhardt von Hevring (pronounced: /'lɪnhɑrd vɒn 'hɛvɹɪŋ/[key]; Japanese: リンハルト=フォン=ヘヴリング Linhardt von Hevring) is a playable character appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is a student at the Officers Academy and a member of the Black Eagles.

Biography

Linhardt is the son of the Earl of Hevring. He and Caspar met each other in their youth and became friends. In 1180, Linhardt enrolls in the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery and joins the Black Eagles, studying and fighting alongside them.

After the timeskip, if Linhardt is a member of Byleth's class, he returns to Garreg Mach on the day of the millennium festival and accompanies them throughout the war. Should Linhardt not be recruited on the Azure Moon and Verdant Wind routes, he rejoins the Adrestian Empire post-timeskip and defends Fort Merceus alongside a non-recruited Caspar and the Death Knight. He can be circumvented or slain at the player's discretion, although the "javelin of light" attack that occurs after the battle on the Verdant Wind route would almost certainly kill him afterward.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Role

Linhardt is a starting playable character for the Black Eagles route and Cindered Shadows, a recruitable unit on the Blue Lions and Golden Deer routes and a recurring enemy should he not be poached during Part I.

Analysis

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

Linhardt is the quintessential healer of the Black Eagles and accordingly excels in a supportive role rather than a combat-oriented role. In being a healer, he has good growths in magic and resistance and an excellent array of faith spells while having low growths in HP and strength; his defense growth is low but is surprisingly decent for a magic-focused unit. With a C-rank in faith, Linhardt gets the essential Physic spell which allows him to support when far from the frontlines, so as to not expose himself to a risk of dying. Since Linhardt starts with a D+ in faith, he can get access to Physic as early as Chapter 2 if you make his sole skill goal faith and give him tutoring in it, meaning he can excel as a support unit very early on. Upon achieving a B-rank, Linhardt gets Restore which allows him to cure the rattled status when allies get hit by enemy gambits, enabling them to move again. And finally, with an A-rank, Linhardt gets access to the coveted Warp spell. Even in a casual playthrough, the Warp spell is immensely useful, especially in the late game of the Crimson Flower route which has a lot of difficult terrain that drastically slows down infantry and cavalry units. In addition to having a varied pool of support options, Linhardt's Reason spell list, while somewhat average compared to the other mages, is also quite good, consisting of Wind, Cutting Gale, Excalibur, Fire, and Bolganone. The wind spells are all comparatively lightweight and have high hit rates, the latter of which is boosted by Linhardt's good growths in dexterity and luck, meaning that Linhardt can deal reliable chip damage in addition to healing allies. However, despite this, Linhardt still makes for a poor frontliner and should chip with the Caduceus Staff or Thyrsus equipped when possible as they boost his max range by one and two respectively, decreasing the chance he will be attacked on the enemy phase. Because Linhardt lacks any strengths or budding talents in weapons, he does not learn any unique combat arts, which prevents him from providing any reliable combat utility that does not involve magic spells, such as dealing high amounts of magic damage with sword arts (Hexblade/Soulblade). This also means that he cannot easily take advantage of acquiring a physical class certification just for a boost in his strength base in order to alleviate the weight of his spells and weapons. Another of Linhardt's weaknesses is the missed potential of his personal skill, Catnap, which restores his HP by 10% when he uses the wait command. The skill is not worth activating as it heals two HP at base and will heal four HP at most which means the skill heals less than a vulnerary. Moreover, Linhardt will almost always have something better to do than simply waiting, whether it be healing an ally or using Draw Back or Reposition to adjust allies' positions. If for any reason Linhardt is equipped with any HP-based skills such as Vantage or the Defiant skills, the self healing can backfire against him if engaged in combat.

Linhardt possesses a Minor Crest of Cethleann which grants him a 30% chance of raising the amount of healing he gives by five. The effect can be nice in a pinch though it is hardly reliable and cannot be depended on. Linhardt's crest also boosts the healing effect of the Caduceus Staff from 12% for units without the Crest of Cethleann to 20%, once again beating out Catnap's low healing. The other benefit of having a crest is that it allows Linhardt to wield relics like the Thyrsus without taking a damage penalty which allows Linhardt to participate in Thyrsus trading circles without putting himself in any danger.

Since Linhardt has some of the best faith spells in the game and is ill-suited for the frontlines in terms of stats and weapon proficiencies, Linhardt is best following a magical promotion path. The path best suited to capitalize on Linhardt's support capabilities is Monk to Priest, ending at Bishop. If you want Linhardt to solely heal your units and avoid combat as much as possible, it is preferable to stop at Bishop instead of moving on to the master tier classes as the Bishop provides the pinnacle of White Magic support; Linhardt is somewhat more limited when it comes to promoting to master tier classes due to the fact that his offensive growths and skill proficiencies are slightly lackluster compared to the other units geared towards magic; the only master class that completely lines up with his skill proficiencies is the Gremory, but that class is unavailable to him due to being locked to female units. As such, the only magical master-tier classes that he has available to him are Holy Knight, Dark Knight, and Mortal Savant. The Holy Knight simply has worse support capabilities than the Bishop as it lacks White Magic Heal +10 and White Magic Uses x2 in exchange for White Tomefaire which only boosts the heavy and low-might Nosferatu for Linhardt. Moreover, Linhardt simply does not need seven movement or Canto in a supportive role due to him having Physic, which by the endgame will have such a massive range that it practically renders the poor movement of infantry mages irrelevant. If you want Linhardt to sacrifice his supportive capabilities for high mobility and combat prowess, the Dark Knight is superior to Holy Knight since it gives Linhardt Black Tomefaire, which boosts nearly all of his offensive magic save for Nosferatu. The Mortal Savant is an inferior version of Dark Knight, having similar class modifiers while having lower movement, lacking Canto, and giving Linhardt an insignificant boost to his strength growth in the final stage of the game and inherent Swordfaire which is equally useless outside of magic swords such as Levin Swords, considering Linhardt is poor viability on the frontlines and in melee combat as well as his low strength. If you do want to make Linhardt into a Dark Knight for the endgame then it is better to promote him into a Mage, in order to obtain Fiendish Blow, rather than a Priest for the Intermediate tier.

Out-of-House Performance

When recruited outside of the Black Eagles, Linhardt will come with tutoring in Reason and Faith, meaning that when recruited, he is well on his way towards his best classes. As for his recruitment requirements of a C in Reason, the requirements are not very convenient unless you plan for Byleth to stay in the Enlightened One class, if you're a Blue Lion seeking to recruit Lorenz, or if you're a Golden Deer male Byleth seeking to recruit Sylvain. The requirement can be lowered quite a bit to a D in reason if he has a B support with Byleth, making his recruitment more manageable. Linhardt is a very desirable recruit for Blue Lions players as they lack a unit that learns Warp. On the other hand, for Golden Deer players, having two warp users can be very beneficial, especially since Linhardt has Physic and can support the warped unit from afar—an ability which Manuela and Lysithea lack. Furthermore, recruiting Linhardt in the Golden Deer route, or recruiting him and Leonie for the Blue Lions, also unlocks a paralogue that grants The Inexhaustible, a powerful bow with a brave effect.

Personality and character


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.


Linhardt hates constraints and loves his own freedom. His disinterest in most things that he learns in class at the Officers Academy, including martial training and diplomacy, tend to come off as laziness. However, when he reads something in the library or finds out something about someone, he pursues that knowledge almost obsessively until he gets bored. This can result in Linhardt digging into people's secrets; he is likely one of the only individuals to discern Flayn's origin and identity, among other things. He has particular interest in Crestology and fishing, but he has strong, if theoretical, knowledge about a variety of topics. As a result, he can provide advice to others about how to go about a certain task, but tends not to phsyically assist with that task. He and Caspar are close friends despite their differing personalities due to the close political and personal relationships between their fathers.

Endings

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar (single ending)
Linhardt abandoned his inherited position in favor of a carefree life at Garreg Mach Monastery. There he spent his days at ease, wiling away the hours at the fishing pond or in his private study. After his passing, a treasure trove of documents was unearthed, revealing the key discoveries he had made during his many years of Crest research.

Byleth, Wandering Flame/Ruler of Dawn & Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar (Silver Snow, Verdant Wind)
After ascending to the throne as the first leader of the United Kingdom of Fódlan, Byleth announced <his/her> marriage to Linhardt. The people of Fódlan placed high expectations on their leader's spouse, but to their consternation, Linhardt spent most of his time fishing, relaxing, and researching Crests. Fortunes turned when Byleth discovered a document, hidden away on Linhardt's desk, which provided a ground-breaking discovery. Cast unwittingly into prominence, Linhardt was put to work in earnest. In return for his service, he demanded longer naps in the company of his spouse.

Byleth, Guardian of Order & Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar (Azure Moon)
After taking on the role of archbishop of the Church of Seiros, Byleth announced <his/her> marriage to Linhardt. The people placed high expectations on him, but to their consternation, Linhardt spent most of his time fishing, relaxing, and researching Crests. Fortunes turned when Byleth discovered a document containing a ground-breaking discovery hidden away on Linhardt's desk. Cast unwittingly into prominence, Linhardt was put to work in earnest. In return for his service to the church, he demanded longer naps with the archbishop.

Byleth, Wings of the Hegemon & Linhardt, Ragamuffin Sage (Crimson Flower)
Though grateful for the end of the war, Byleth and Linhardt were disappointed to see that there was no time to relax. The fight against those who slither in the dark began immediately, and Linhardt abandoned his territory to help fight for a world of peace and quiet. Though the struggle was bitter, he took heart in the knowledge that once it was over, he and Byleth could spend the rest of their days in leisure, chasing idle pursuits far away from the stage of battle.

Edelgard, Flame Emperor & Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar
As the new Adrestian emperor, Edelgard gave all she had to breathe new life into the government of Fódlan. With tireless work and great sacrifice, she instituted new class reforms to ensure that people could rise on their own merits. During those years, however, there was a period of time in which she simply disappeared. It is said that she went to the research facility of the foremost authority in Crests, Linhardt, who had relinquished his rank and title to live a life of study. There, after confirming the results of Linhardt's experiments, Edelgard was able to enjoy a rare break from her busy life. The respite was brief, but they cherished that time for the rest of their lives.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Caspar, Roaming Instigator
After the war, Linhardt and Caspar abandoned their noble houses to pursue a carefree journey wandering the world. They traveled to every corner of Fódlan, and even ventured abroad now and again. Caspar got into trouble at every turn on their travels, but Linhardt was always there, begrudgingly, to get him out of it. The records of their adventures were immortalized in a book by an anonymous author, entitled "The Thousand Roads and Seven Seas." It is said they did eventually settle down, after the events in those stories, but where they actually went is unknown.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Bernadetta, Eternal Loner (Silver Snow, Azure Moon, Verdant Wind)
Linhardt and Bernadetta caused quite the stir after the war when they abandoned their inherited titles and eloped to Garreg Mach. Returning to the monastery, where they were always most comfortable, the couple lived peaceful lives away from the hassle of politics. When the church was fully restored, the Officers Academy reopened, and two eccentric individuals took up professorships there. One was perpetually asleep, or absorbed in absentminded study; the other refused to show herself at all unless it was time to give a lecture.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Bernadetta, Eternal Loner (Crimson Flower)
Linhardt and Bernadetta caused quite the stir after the war when they abandoned their inherited titles and eloped to Garreg Mach. Returning to the monastery, where they were always most comfortable, the couple lived peaceful lives away from the hassle of politics. When the Empire's efforts to restore the church were complete, the Officers Academy reopened, and two eccentric individuals took up professorships there. One was perpetually asleep, or absorbed in absentminded study; the other refused to show herself at all unless it was time to give a lecture.

Linhardt, Ragamuffin Sage & Dorothea, Devoted Heart
After the war, Linhardt decided to inherit his title. He spent several years studying his territory, learning to manage its affairs, and when he was finally ready to become the new Count Hevring, he announced his marriage to Dorothea. Somehow, despite all this activity, Linhardt actually managed to keep up with his Crest studies. Though his results were dubious at times, his new wife helped him alter them so that they would be of use to people. Their relationship was unlike anything the nobility had ever witnessed. When faced with this accusation, Linhardt and Dorothea could only laugh and note that the past was of no significance to them.

Linhardt, Ragamuffin Sage & Petra, Queen of Brigid
Petra returned to her homeland of Brigid, and inherited the throne from her grandfather. As ruler, she declared independence from Fódlan, and renegotiated Brigid's diplomatic relationships on more equal terms. Next, she introduced industrial practices that were modeled on those of Fódlan, vastly improving her homeland's economy. This rapid development surprised those abroad, until it was discovered that the improvements came thanks to the counsel of Petra's husband, Linhardt, who had left Fódlan to offer Brigid his talent and insight. It is said that the couple maintained a healthy and affectionate relationship, and that they raised many happy children together.

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.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Lysithea, Scholar of Misfortune
Though Linhardt researched vigorously for a method by which to remove the Crests from Lysithea and save her life, the war ended before he could reach any conclusions. Lysithea, deciding that she should return home to her parents, thanked Linhardt and took her leave of Garreg Mach. Not to be deterred, Linhardt set his affairs in order, renounced his noble title, and followed Lysithea to Ordelia territory to continue his research. Years later, his efforts bore fruit, and Lysithea's Crests were successfully removed. With a new future ahead of her, Lysithea, too, renounced her noble claim, and the couple married as commoners. It is said they raised a very happy family.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Marianne, Survivor of the Curse
Marianne returned home to a warm welcome from her adoptive father, who recognized her wisdom and skill and began to groom her as his successor. Meanwhile, Linhardt abandoned his noble claim, and happened to choose Margrave Edmund's territory as the site at which to continue his Crest research. Edmund took a liking to Linhardt and approved wholeheartedly when the scholar and his daughter expressed their wish to marry. As Edmund's successors, the couple combined Linhardt's brilliance with Marianne's practical wisdom to bring abundance to the people.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Flayn, Slumbering Princess
Immediately after the war, Flayn disappeared from Garreg Mach. At the same time, Linhardt mysteriously abandoned his claim to House Hevring, and also vanished. It was suspected, among those who knew them, that they had eloped, although no one seemed to know just where they went. Over a decade later, well after the Officers Academy had been rebuilt, something strange happened. A sleepy young girl with antiquated clothing and the Major Crest of Cethleann enrolled. Over the next two years, a young boy and girl with that same Crest also enrolled. Though Crest scholars deduced that they must be siblings, the truth of their lineage was never definitely proven.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Catherine, Guardian of Zanado (Silver Snow if Byleth has an A or S-support with Rhea, Azure Moon)
When Rhea absconded her post as archbishop, Catherine resigned from the Knights of Seiros and accompanied her to a life of seclusion in the Red Canyon. They were joined by Catherine's new husband, Linhardt, who continued his Crest research at Catherine's behest. Motivated by his wife, and freed from all other distractions, Linhardt made new discoveries at an astonishing rate. The fruits of his research brought about dramatic changes in the world of Crest research, but for the sake of his privacy, Linhardt always published his papers anonymously.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Catherine, Free Knight (Silver Snow if Byleth does not have A or S-support with Rhea, Verdant Wind)
Catherine left the Knights of Seiros and set out to travel across Fódlan. With Thunderbrand in hand, she wandered the countryside, seeking always to defend the innocent and punish the wicked. During these years of heroics, she had an unusual traveling companion in Linhardt, who had renounced his noble title and followed her. During their adventures, Catherine was said to be nearly unstoppable, and Linhardt all but useless—except in moments of great need, when the Crest scholar's wisdom would suddenly carry the day. The pair's adventures lived on as beloved folktales, passed down through the generations. It is unclear whether the two were ever romantically involved.

Linhardt, Sleepy Crest Scholar & Hapi, Freed Spirit
After the war, Linhardt abandoned his inherited position and instead journeyed with Hapi to the village both she and Saint Timotheos were from. The villagers initially bristled at the arrival but welcomed the two once they recognized Hapi. Combining what he had uncovered beneath Garreg Mach with notes found in the village said to have been left by Timotheos himself, Linhardt swiftly unraveled the mystery of Hapi's unique power. With little to do once the research was completed, the pair embarked upon a life of leisure together.

Trivia

  • As an enemy, Linhardt has access to the Seraphim and Fortify spells, which he cannot learn as a playable unit; likewise and disregarding enemy-only abilities, Linhardt cannot learn the White Magic Avoid +20 ability under normal circumstances.
  • Linhardt is the only playable character who lacks any character-specific Combat arts (such as Soulblade, Deadeye, etc.). This is likely due to the fact that he does not have any strengths or budding talents in swords, lances, axes, bows, or brawling.
