Fire Emblem Three Houses Black Eagles

The Black Eagles house in Fire Emblem Three Houses specialize in the use of magic. Although their leader, Edelgard, carries around a huge axe with her in the prologue section of the game, the house is adept with magic in the heat of battle.

The Adrestian Empire is where the Black Eagles faction hails from in Fire Emblem Three Houses. They're just one of the three powers vying for control of the land of Fodlan, which at the time of the game is in a state of peace.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Edelgard

Edelgard is the headstrong leader of the Black Eagles in Fire Emblem Three Houses. In battle, Edelgard is strong against swords, axes, and knights, but is weak against bows and magical attacks.

Edelgard's defining ability is called 'Imperial Lineage.' This unique trait multiplies all experience gained by 1.2%. We're not currently sure if this can be increased over the course of the game.
