Dimitri is a playable character and one of the main protagonists in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. He is the 17-year-old prince of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and the house leader of the Blue Lions. Dimitri possesses a Minor Crest of Blaiddyd and wields Lances as his main weapon. A sincere young man who seems like the embodiment of chivalry, Dimitri has a shade of darkness lying beneath his cheerful demeanor. Despite being a royal, he dislikes formality and pretentiousness, preferring his allies to be frank. Dimitri has a strange sense of humor, which is evident by his fondness for Alois's corny jokes. By his own admission, he finds them humorous precisely because they are terrible. According to Hapi, there is an uncanny resemblance to his stepmother Patricia in terms of personality, such as the way they interact with people and show anger. He enjoys combat training, weapon repair, and long rides, but dislikes fragile objects and delicate work, as he is unable to control his prodigious strength. Despite this, he is agile and became a capable dancer under Edelgard's tutelage. Like Edelgard, he is uncomfortable with scorching heat. Dimitri suffers from ageusia and survivor's guilt as a result of the slaughter in the Tragedy of Duscur. The former leaves him as the only person able to stomach Flayn's food and the latter causes him to see and hear apparitions of the dead. He is close to Dedue and admits that being able to save someone gave him a reason to live. In regards to the Crest System, Dimitri holds somewhat of a mixed stance towards it. While he believes that the system can be cruel for those like Miklan where it overlooks his own merits in favor of those with Crests, he maintains the stance that discarding such beliefs would cause greater problems. He overall believes that the two sides must reach an understanding with one another. His Three Hopes counterpart retains his sanity but still haves survivor guilt. He hesitates with certain tasks like killing his uncle and accepting Areadbhar. He will do anything to keep his people and friends safe like surrendering to Cornelia or fighting a possessed Shez.
