The 4 new characters from Ashen Wolves can be recruited in the part 1 of the main game. In order to do that, you need to make progress in the side story Cindered Shadow. Finish the side story first to recruit them all!

Inviting students can be initiated by talking to them during your free days. A recruit dialogue will show up when you talk to characters that can be recruited. Scouting does not consume Activity Points.

2. Meet Their Required Stats

Meet Their Required Stats

The simplest way to get a character to join their house is to meet their required stats. Each one has a set of stats they're looking for. Some characters can only be recruited after a specific point in the story so check which character can be recruited after story events.

Raise Stats Via Faculty Training

CatherineCatherine Sword, Brawl
GilbertGilbert Lance, Axe, Hvy Armor, Riding
JeraltJeralt Lance, Authority, Riding
ManuelaManuela Sword, Faith, Flying

You can raise your stats by visiting Instructors during Free Time and availing the Faculty Training. Faculty Training consumes 1 Activity Point but greatly raises your desired stat. Use this if you want to dramatically increase a stat in one day.

Increasing Support Level Lowers Requirements

Characters that have a high support level with the main character lower their requirements for scouting. This means that even if you have a low level for a specific skill, raising the support level may convince that character to join your House. Be sure to raise your Support Level with the character that you want to recruit.

You Cannot Recruit The Whole House

Unfortunately, you cannot recruit a whole House. House leaders and some characters are locked from scouting due to story purposes.

3. Talk Or Wait For Them

Ask Characters to Join

Upon meeting their required stats, simply talk to characters to recruit them. An option of accepting them and rejecting them will then appear and agreeing to take them in makes them a member of your house.

Wait For Them To Join

If you mistakenly asked first before meeting a character's requirements, fret not. As the week passes, there might be a chance that the character will approach you during the weekdays to ask to join your House. You will then have a chance to accept or reject them.

Benefits of Character Recruitment

Recruited Characters Can Be Deployed

The obvious benefit of having another character joining your stable is that you can deploy another character into the battlefield. While the number of participants in a battle is limited, each character has its own unique skill that may prove to be beneficial to your fighting style.

They Can Be Instructed

Once recruited characters join your house, they can get the privilege of getting taught by you. You can change their goals, grow their specific skills, and change their classes.

Unlock Support Conversations

Characters from your selected House have Support Conversations with characters from other Houses. To view this, having them in battle and increasing their Support is the easiest method. While you can request build Support with them through the "Mission Assistance" function, having them in your House is better as recruited characters stay indefinitely.

You Can Recruit Non-Student Characters

Scouting characters is not limited to students. Instructors can also be scouted. These characters can be recruited as you progress the story.

Required Character Recruitment Stats

Have a High Support Level with Them

Having a good relationship with a character will override their required stats. You can do this by spending time with them or choosing the right dialogue option when talking.
