Embla is a character mentioned in Fire Emblem Heroes. She's the main antagonist of Book VI (altough she's offscreen so far).

She is the goddess of barriers and broken bonds, and the legendary dragon of the Emblian Empire. Embla and Thrasir founded the Emblian Empire where Thrasir became the first empress and worked together with Kingdom of Askr to open and close gates to other worlds. Many years later, for as of yet unknown reasons, Embla sets a plan in motion to wipe out everyone who carries Askr's blood, and she sends her retainer Elm to end the bloodline.

Etymology

Embla and Askr were the first two humans, created by the gods. In Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, both sources, three gods, one of whom is Odin, find Ask and Embla and bestow upon them various corporeal and spiritual gifts.

In Old Norse, Embla theoretically means "elm tree" or "vine". The crest of Embla also resembles a vine or tree.
