“Ah, so you have not forgotten your time with us. Yes, I served Lady Hel. I did everything I could for her... But then Askr's Order of Heroes came and took Lady Hel from me, and it was you who brought them.”
—Ganglöt to Eir, Life & Death 1

Ganglöt is a character from Fire Emblem Heroes. Once the handmaid of Hel, she became the realm of the dead's ruler after her death, and seeks to avenge her master.

Profile[]

Ganglöt was abandoned as a small child, but Hel took her into her care. To her, Hel is an object of absolute reverence. She also adored Hel's adopted daughter, Eir. But when Eir slew Hel, Ganglöt's adoration gave way to the most bitter of grudges.

As the denizens of Hel are restless and leaderless after the death of Hel, Ganglöt wants to succeed her. However, as Eir was Hel's daughter, she views her as a potential rival to the position, and as she was partly responsible for Hel's death, Ganglöt wants to kill her. She, in fact, succeeded in this goal, but Eir was resurrected by Ymir, the goddess of life, who traded her life for Eir's, living on only in Eir's mind.

Sometime after Eir was rescued by Ymir, Ganglöt became aware of her survival and summoned Líf in his Arcane form. She ordered him to go after Eir or risk being killed again. With that said, Líf agrees to Ganglöt's request despite his suspicions towards her.

Having repelled Líf temporarily, Eir approaches Ganglöt's throne room and is confronted by the former handmaiden. Eir meets Ganglöt's taunting with confidence, but is unable to overpower her and winds up on the brink of defeat, though she still refuses to flee. During their fight, Ganglöt mistakes Eir's plotting with Ymir, whom Ganglöt cannot see or hear, as prayers, allowing Eir one last moment and lamenting her own inability to be as merciless as her former mistress. Eir allows Ganglöt to cut her down and Ganglöt absorbs the princess's power, as Hel once did. However, in doing so, she also absorbs the essence of Ymir, who taunts Ganglöt from within before destroying the wicked reaper from the inside out, leading to both Ymir and Ganglöt's demise. With Ganglöt's death, the residents of the realm of Ymir who had been taken captive by Hel are freed, including Eir's biological mother, who trades her own life for Eir's, resurrecting the princess for the second time and ensuring Ganglöt's efforts were truly fruitless.

Etymology[]

Ganglöt was Hel's maidservant in Norse mythology, and the partner of Ganglati. Both of the names in Old Norse mean 'lazy walker'. Or have something to do with slowness or tardiness.

Their names are said to have been the result of how they moved. Hel says, "Ganglati and Ganglot, who moved so slowly that they appeared to be standing still."
