Bernadetta von Varley is a major protagonist in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is a member of the Black Eagle house who is very proficient with bows.
She is voiced by Ayumi Tsuji in the Japanese version and Erica Mendez in the English dub.
Bernadetta is extremely shy and timid around strangers. This is mostly due to her father's torture. She always believes that everyone is out to hurt her, often running, screaming or even fainting on occasion. Even when someone is only looking out for her or complimenting her, such as Petra and Lindhart, she will usually take it as hostility. She ends up spending most of her time in her room as a result. She also has very low self esteem, not appreciating her talents.
She does genuinely want to make friends with other people, even though she constantly misinterprets what her friends are saying. She also does not get scared by usually intimidating people such as Felix. She gets along very well with Alois, since he reminds her of her kind uncle. She enjoys reading, drawing, music, embroidery , carnivorous plants and animals. She dislikes speaking to others and imposing figures.
Bernadetta is the eldest daughter and heir of the son of the Count of Varley. When she was young, her father forced her to be groomed into "a perfect wife." This psychological torture included tying her to a chair and forcing her to be silent for hours. She would hate these sessions, most often kicking and screaming to try get out of them. This never works, so she became shy around strangers and she only feels comfortable in her room.
Another reason why she became reclusive is because when she was young, she became friends with a commoner named Yuri. When her father found out about this, he attacked and almost beat him to death. This made Bernadetta scared of interacting with people due to her fear that her father would hurt them.
She was practically kidnapped by her mother in order for her to go to Officers Academy in the Garreg Mach Monastery. She joined the Black Eagle house and when she is not at lectures or in class, she is almost always in her room. She will be recruited instantly if Byleth chooses the Black Eagle house. She can be recruited into the Blue Lions or Golden Deer if Byleth has enough Strength and Bow proficiency.
In the Crimson Flower route, she stays with Byleth and Edelgard, saying that she trusts the professor. In the Azure Moon and Verdant Wind routes, she will stay with Byleth if recruited. If she is not recruited, she will appear as an enemy in the Battle at Grondor Field. If she dies, Edelgard will mourn for her, saying that her sacrifice will not be in vain. In the Silver Snow route, she stays with Byleth and the church, saying that she trusts the Professor more than Edelgard.
