Fire Emblem has a long history of hidden characters that can be unlocked and used during campaign runs. Three hopes keep that legacy going, with a handful of powerful characters that can be recruited. Byleth, the titular hero of Three Houses, is one of these hidden characters. This guide will break down each step needed to recruit this powerful fighter in Fire Emblem: Three Hopes.

How to find and recruit Byleth

Finding Byleth is one of the harder in game challenges, as it isn’t explained at all in game that you can completely miss out on recruiting them into your army.

To begin the hunt for Byleth, you must go through the campaign until you reach chapter 10. Once you get this point in any of the three unique story routes, Scarlet Blaze, Azure Gleam, or Golden Wildfire, you will meet the first step required to find them. After reaching this point, you will have a chance to see a message stating, “Your actions in this battle will greatly impact the outcome of the story.” Create a save file before this battle if you need to try again, as the timing for this is rigid.

During this battle, play as usual until you encounter Byleth. Once they make an appearance, retreat to your starting location. While doing this, bring up the orders sub-menu and have one of your party members head to the opposite side of your starting base. Arval will keep suggesting you fight Byleth, but ignore Arval and continue falling back to the map start.

After a few moments, a new secret mission will appear in the opposite corner of your home base. All you have to do is defeat the new enemy that spawns before Byleth can make their way to this new location. Since you have already preemptively ordered a party member to this location, swap them and take out the new enemy captain.

Upon completing this side mission, Byleth and Jeralt will join your party. If you fight Byleth or don’t follow the instructions correctly, you must play a new game plus and try again. Since you should have made a save file, load it up and try again until you perform this task successfully. Once you recruit them into your army, raise their renown and gather umbral steel to upgrade Byleth and their weapon as fast as possible.
