Flayn Intro

Fire Emblem Three Houses Flayn
Flayn in Fire Emblem

Flayn is a pretty and sweet girl who talks to others politely and treats them kindly. She was isolated from society, so she is always curious to understand and adjust to the culture.

Therefore, little things like fish swimming sideways can get her attention, and she becomes curious pretty quickly. Also, she takes words literally because she doesn’t understand what they mean or in what context they are used in society. She loves to wander around to explore and make new friends. 

Furthermore, Flayn is interested in love and relationships. Still, Seteth chases away anyone who tries to come close or develop a bond with her sister. As a result, she hides her romantic pursuits and prefers to keep her relationships a secret.

How To Recruit Flayn 

Flayn will be recruited in a house where Byleth teaches at the end of chapter 6. When you reach chapter 11, if the player is leading the Black Eagles’ place, Flayn will leave the party if she finds out that the player is on Edelgard’s side.

Moreover, any items possessed by Flayn will be lost. So it’s advised to return the items to the convoy before attempting this chapter. Also, Flayn will remain the playable unit if the player decides to side with the church of Seiros.

Flayn’s Attributes

Flayn is a priest with high growth in magic and resistance. It allows her to heal and attack magically. Also, her charm and skills are excellent, allowing her to hit enemies accurately and use Battalions effectively. Before going further, go through our guides like Three Hopes Best Classes and Cleobulus Boss Guide

However, she has low physical bulks, and her speed is also average. It means that most physical units can fall in single combat. Similarly, her luck is terrible, so she is vulnerable to critical hits. That’s why she avoids direct confrontation, and it’s a must that you put units between her and her enemies.


Flayn’s strength lies in Lance and Faith, who later establish her as a healer and help her become a Holy Knight. Her faith spell pool contains extremely useful Fortify. It allows her to heal all allies within her range. But, Flayn lacks Physic if you compare her with Mercedes. So, she has to be closer to the front lines to heal allies, which can put Flayn at risk.


One of Flayn’s weaknesses is riding. It’s a mirror hindrance that slows her down from becoming a potential. Another weakness is the Heavy Armor. So, it’s advised that she should not be trained in this subject because her inherent strength is in magic. Also, she has a weak strength stat. 

Suitable Classes For Flayn

She naturally fits and adjusts in Priest and Bishop classes. However, she can be trained to shift into Mage and Warlock classes. All these categories suit her well due to her Magic focus. Bishop and Gremory are excellent for doubling powerful support magic.

The best class for her would be Dark Flier. It supports all her strengths and allows her to Transmute. So, she becomes even better as a magical bait unit. The only demerit is that it doesn’t provide additional charges for her faith spells. Meanwhile, go through Recruiting Byleth guide.
