—Laegjarn speaking to the Order of Heroes in Book II: Chapter 5.
Laegjarn is a Book II antagonist from Fire Emblem Heroes. She is the eldest princess of the Flame Kingdom Múspell and a general of its army, along with her younger sister Laevatein. She works at first for her father King Surtr, but later serves the god Múspell.
She first appears in Book II, Chapter 5, where, after tracking down the Order of Heroes, she demands they surrender, offering to spare them if they do so. Upon their refusal, she leads her forces, her sister Laevatein among them, into battle, but is pushed back. Admitting defeat, Laegjarn and Laevatein retreat. Afterward, Laevatein considers resorting to a power that could end up destroying her, but Laegjarn immediately orders her to never use it, and Laevatein relents.
Mulling over the Askrans' motives for traveling to Nifl, she realizes that they are trying to discover a way to defeat Múspell. She comes to this conclusion based on the determination she witnessed among the Askran forces, noting that they would not be so resolute in their actions if they weren't certain there was a way they could win the war. She then starts crafting a plan to attempt to cut off the Order before they can turn the tide of battle. Though she is careful in her pursuit, she realizes too late that she has fallen into a trap; knowing the danger she posed, the Order lured her into an ambush. Laegjarn orders Laevatein to flee, and is subsequently defeated and captured. Though Laegjarn assumes she will be tortured or executed, the Order expresses the respect they have for her as they prepare to hold her captive. However, while the Order witnessed Surtr killing Gunnthrá, Laegjarn escaped.
Pursuing the order in Múspell, she's seen again at the end of Chapter 10, where she comments about the report of Hríd managing to escape once more, explaining that even wounded, Hríd is still a formidable foe as he infiltrated the kingdom and tried to kill Surtr on his own and, deeming it a dangerous prospect, decides to find him before he join forces with the Askrans. For that end, she coerces Helbindi into aiding her, pointing out that if either Surtr or Loki finds out about his survival, he will be killed or worked to death, but if he succeeds, he will live and be able to help his sister. However, Laegjarn releases him from his duties in Chapter 12, regrettably informing him that her father burned the slums he lived in and killed everyone there along with his sister, making the blackmail pointless.
Her final appearance is in Chapter 13 where she sacrifice herself for the Rite of Flames to prevent her father from killing Laevatein. After being defeated one last time by the Order of Heroes, she suffers fatal injures and succumbs to her death. Before she dies, she tells Fjorm that she wished things turned out differently between Nifl and Múspell, and makes a final request to Fjorm and the others, asking them to save her sister, Laevatein.
At the end of Ice and Flame 1, it is revealed that Laegjarn is Muspell's champion.
In Ice and Flame 3, A year after Laegjarn performed the rite of flame, Muspell revived Laegjarn by using the power of his flames. At first she was confused as to how she was alive, Muspell explained that since she gave her life and strength to him, he revived her. He demands her to kneel; he explains to her that he has leant her his power for the time being until he reclaims it back, until then she is his servant; her life is in his hands. Although she is aware of who he is, she has no intentions to becoming his slave. Muspell is impressed by her attitude, claiming it reminded him of 'another he lent his flame to long ago.' He then explains to her that he has revived her to fight against Nifl's champion, Fjorm. Laegjan instantly refuses, telling him that Fjorm is her friend. Muspell does not care for this, telling her to kneel and beg, as she then screams in pain.
In stark contrast to her father, Laegjarn is a kind, respectful, and serious woman. She is demonstrably more honorable and merciful than her father, sincerely acknowledging the Order of Heroes' courage and bravery even when giving them the opportunity to surrender.
Laegjarn is also known to care deeply for her younger sister, as revealed in their conversations. One such conversation sees Laegjarn expressing relief upon seeing that Laevatein is unharmed, going on to order her to retreat if she gets injured. Furthermore, Laegjarn is also portrayed to treat the people of the conquered Nifl territory with respect and compassion, her actions granting her the respect of her enemies in the Askrian forces.
Not possessing as much strength as her father and sister, Laegjarn compensates this flaw by having a keen strategic mind in regards to warfare. She is able to make very accurate forecasts of her enemies' actions using just a few clues, as evidenced by not being fooled by the Order's fake trail and laying an ambush for them in response. So great is her skill in fact, that she declares in her quotes that Kiran and Alfonse were the first to outwit her. She also has keen insight into her allies as well, as she was able to uncover Helbindi's motivation to fight, and was aware that Loki is only as loyal to someone for as long as it aids her own purposes due to her capricious nature.
