Fire Emblem Heroes Banner With Marianne and Dedue Revealed

Fire Emblem Heroes Marianne

The seasons are changing. Fire Emblem Heroes is sending for reinforcements, in the form of a handful of new recruits fresh from the classrooms of Garreg Mach monastery. The new Seeds of Fódlan banner will add Marianne, Dedue, Ingrid, and Linhardt to the game’s roster of heroes, all drawn from the core cast of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. They will be added on March 5, 2021.

Check out a new trailer detailing the new characters:

All four characters join Fire Emblem Heroes from the “student” era of Fire Emblem: Three Houses‘ campaign, meaning they’re all wearing the standard Garreg Mach uniform. Other Three Houses characters in the roster range from other points in time.

Marianne: Adopted Daughter might be the headline addition of this Fire Emblem Heroes banner. She was popular enough to stand among the winners of February 2021’s  Choose Your Legends voting contest. Her English-language voice actress is Xanthe Huynh, and her character illustration was drawn by artist HAKO. She will join as a blue tome infantry unit:



Ingrid first joined Fire Emblem Heroes as a summer character. This time around, artist Nishiki Areku drew her more canon-friendly “Galatea’s Heir” version. Her English voice is provided by Brittany Cox. She will be a blue lance-wielding cavalry unit.


Dedue backs up the Blue Lions representation as Dimitri’s Vassal, a green armored axe unit. His character art came from Kita Senri and his English voice from Ben Lepley:


As for the Black Eagles, Linhardt: Hevring’s Heir strolled in from a nap to don some character art from muraicchi. He will take a spot as a colorless staff-user. His English voice comes courtesy of Chris Patton:


The Fire Emblem Heroes update will also add a new story chapter titled “Night and Day,” which will introduce players to Ingrid, Dedue, Marianne, and Linhardt.

Fire Emblem Heroes is immediately available on iOS and Android. The Seeds of Fódlan banner begins on March 5, 2021.
