Seiros! I will kill you! Do not get in my way!
~ Nemesis
You are all pathetic weaklings! You lack the courage to challenge me in lone combat.
~ Nemisis belittling Byleth and Claude for working as a team.

Nemesis, also known as the King of Liberation and the Fell King, is the overarching antagonist of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and the archenemy of Seiros. He is also behind the creation of the Crests, the war upon Fodlan, and the demise of Sothis.

He initially serves as a historical figure for most of the game, but in the Golden Deer route, particularly in the final chapter, Nemesis serves as a much more important figure when he becomes the route's final boss after his unexpected revival by the forces of Those Who Slither in the Dark.

He is voiced by Naomi Kusumi in Japanese version and by Jamieson Price in English version, with the latter also voiced Rudolf from Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and Zephiel in Fire Emblem Heroes.

Personality

Nemesis was an extremely violent bandit who was convinced to plunder the holy tomb to get power. He is shown to be a very calm and serious commander in the opening cut-scene, only reacting in any way when he realises that Seiros is a Nabatean. Even when this happens, he only is shocked for a moment. When he is revived, however, he shows his hate for Seiros, saying he will kill her even though she does not appear to fight him. He loses any semblance of calmness that he had in the cut-scene, and shows his lunacy. However, he has a code of honour, calling Byleth and Claude cowards for fighting 2 on 1 and not resorting to any cheap tactics during his fight.

Appearance

Nemesis appears to be an old man with white hair, a white beard and red eyes. He is completely covered in scars. He wears shoulder armour and has a white cape. He also wields the dark version of the Sword of the Creator.

Biography

Past

According to the historical legend by the Church of Seiros, Nemesis was once a wise and brave king whom the Goddess Sothis entrusted to protect Fódlan from hostile invaders. However, over time, he gone corrupted and grew more power hungry after being influenced by the people of Agartha, deserting his duty and becoming a bandit king. He worked with them to slaughter the "Children of the Goddess" in Zanado, and was responsible for the death of Sothis via killing her in her slumber to use her body parts as weapons.

Using Agarthan technology, Nemesis and his allies, the Ten Elites, created the Crests from the hearts of the people of Zanado and the Heroes' Relics from the bones of the Goddess, distributing them to Ten Elites.

The truth of the legend, however, is that Nemesis was never more than a common thief who managed to break into the Holy Tomb, stealing Sothis' body. His working partners, revealed to be Those Who Slither in the Dark, then used the blood of Sothis to give him the Crest of Flames and the body of Sothis to make the Sword of the Creator.

In Imperial Year 91, the armies of Nemesis and Seiros clashed at the Tailtean Plains, where Nemesis was confronted and killed by Seiros in single-combat.

Verdant Wind

After the war of Shambala, the leadership of Those Who Slither in the Dark was eliminated by Byleth, Rhea, Claude and the army of Leicester Alliance, but turned out Those Who Slither in the Dark members already succeeded in reviving Nemesis, whom their remnants manipulated into invading Fodlan and destroying everyone in his path along with the Ten Elites. After a long time of struggle, Byleth and Claude worked together and finally slain Nemesis for the second and final time in battle.

Trivia

  • The tale of Nemesis being a bandit king is disputed by Edelgard, who claims she was taught Nemesis was not power hungry, and instead his war with Seiros was a simple dispute over which race should rule over Fodlan, humanity or the Nabateans.
  • Unlike Rhea or Edelgard, both of whom can be fought in multiple routes, Nemesis can only be fought as the final boss in the Verdant Wind route.
  • Nemesis is named after an ancient Greek goddess who enacts retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods).
    • Another name for her is Adrasteia (or Adrestia), meaning "the inescapable". It became the namesake of Adrestian Empire.
