Sothis, the mysterious girl who appears to the hero in visions, from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

The story follows the hero of Fódland, gifted with mysterious powers, who begins to have visions of a mysterious girl, named Sothis, who appears only in their mind. Around the same time, the hero must travel to Garreg Mach Monastery, situated at the center of Fódland's three major powers, where they receive an offer to teach classes to students of one of the three houses. This monastery is the home of the Church of Seiros, the main religion of Fódland which seeks to maintain the balance between the regional powers, and also houses the Knights of Seiros and the Officer's Academy.

Each of the three houses is home to students from Fódland's three regions. The Black Eagles are students from the Adrestian Empire, including Edelgard, the future Empress. The Blue Lions, of the Kingdom of Faerghus, are led by none other than Prince Dimitri. Finally, the Golden Deer, lead by the heir apparent, Claude, welcomes citizens of the Leicester Alliance. Additionally, players will encounter a large cast of students, each with a unique personality and skills. Students will be able to strengthen their bonds through interactions around the academy, as well as training for battle, and honing their skills.
