Is it true that Edelgard is the closest character to obsess over MC?

Recommended Posts

The amount that Edelgard cares for Byleth varies widely.

Spoiler

 

In the Black Eagles Imperial Path, she relies on his support and is deeply thankful for it. She's aware that nothing would be going as well as it is if not for him, and generally treats him like a valued confidant at bare minimum, and the most important person in her life if he goes for the S-support.

In the Black Eagles Church Path, she's a bit more obsessive. Byleth has rejected her at every major juncture, and it clearly grates on her. She continually offers him chances to swap sides, and once he rejects her completely post timeskip, she treats him as an absolute enemy. When the time finally comes, she accepts her death at Byleth's hand with good grace.

In the Blue Lions path, she's more focused on killing Dimitri than recruiting Byleth, but still expresses that she has no desire to fight him in the final boss fight.

In the Golden Deer path, she laments that Byleth didn't side with her, but doesn't have enough time to really build up any kind of relationship with him.

Overall, she clearly wants Byleth to be on her side, and respects both his skills and judgement. She seems to feel a personal attachment to him, partly due to similar personalities, and after seeing him in action, clearly desires his approval and validation for her actions. But in the end, her own plans and desires take priority. She wants Byleth's approval and help, but if she doesn't get it, she advances down her path anyway. So no, she's nothing like Tharja. She's far more driven, ambitious and independent.

Can you actually switch sides if she asks you after you first sided with the church? or is it more like she asks you but byleth says no without the player having a say in it?

No, you can't. Options are to refuse hesitantly or to refuse outright. Either way, she takes it as a rejection.

how so is it yandere or just plain crazy

Spoiler

Not romantic or really even crazy. She wants you to be a vessel for a good dragon. So basically the opposite of Robin, who's a vessel for an evil one.

I am too. I'm also glad there don't seem to be any yanderes so far in the game. That a trope that needs a break.

yeah your right wouldn't of mind Kronya being the the yandere though. glad three houses still has anime troops but also glad they made the character more organic too though.

Kronya does look like yandere material. She reminds me of Peri, too. I think it's her makeup.

but based on her Heroes version, she seems more like a total misanthrope.
