Jötunheimr is a realm from Book V of Fire Emblem Heroes. It's the home of the Jötnar, fairly tall people who praise traditional ways.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Long ago, the Jötnar of Jötunheimr ruled over the dvergar, until a young dvergr used his craft to build weapons which allowed dvergar to fight on equal footing with the jötnar and gain independence by founding Niðavellir. In recent times, a powerful blade named Gramr was offered to them by prince Ótr as a peace offering after relationships with them devolved to the point of leading to war.
In order to fight against Fáfnir, the Order of Heroes sends a missive to the royal family to obtain Gramr, which they agreed to meet, by meeting the eldest princess Nótt, at the castle Barnstokkr. However, Dagr challenges the Order due to the queen declaring that the one who is stronger when she steps down becomes the next queen, but promptly joins them on their travel once she's defeated.
Unlike Niðavellir, the jötnar of Jötunheimr have a culture rooted in tradition, and have excelled at combat since ancient times, despite generally disliking fighting. It has also been ruled by queens for generations.
