Honestly though I'm just really excited for the three lords themselves.

Edelgard has the most focus (literally the female lord has always been the overshadowed one before now) and is fairly ruthless in an "ends justify the means" way. Described as being like Micaiah but less naïve and more experienced. Gets hair buns post-time skip and her canon promotion path gives her Axes, Armor, and Authority and her class is called Kaiser.

Dimitri is the only member of his family who wasn't killed and he lives with the mental anguish that comes with being the last of his immediate family. Loses his eye at one point and wears an eyepatch after the time skip, alongside getting better hair. Gets Lances, Swords, and Authority in his canon promotion path.

Claude has to deal with the mysteries surrounding his own heritage as apparently he wasn't supposed to be the next in line for the job. Gets sideburns after the time skip and his canon promotion path makes him a bow wielding Wyvern Lord. His Wyvern is white with orange hair and scales, and has a beard.

Unless there’s something in the spoilers I’m refusing to read...

“High School students”?

Are they though?
It's a military academy. They'd be closer to college age, if anything. The power dynamic issue is still there, but not the age issue.

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking, it’s more the power dynamic

Like... since the lords are also students afaik I’m under the impression that they’re all pretty adult

At this point I just want to know who the staff member was that birthed the infamous "guise of context" quote.

You know, considering it's basically the "sense of pride and accomplishment" of Smashboards at this point. :p

Edelgard reminds me of a character concept I had so I'm interested to see how she turns out.
Actually, I'm very interested in how they'll handle the houses you din't side with because this is exactly what I wanted Fates to be: an initially neutral party who has to pick a side in this conflict they got stuck in. As much as I dislike Dimitri, it's gonna be hard to kill the guy when I know he's got survivor's guilt and his chapter will likely play out like Xander's Birthright chapter was supposed to go.

Also, what do you mean the wyvern has a beard???

I'm pretty damn sure they are. Assuming the protagonists are of the 14-17 age group that most FE lords are a part of and that they are in a class of reeeeeelave-ish peers, then they're probably going to be around that age group as well.

Literal bearded dragon lol.

Also apparently Dimitri's mom married into Edelgard's family, so they're steps siblings or cousins or something
