Múspell is the name of the Flame Kingdom in Fire Emblem Heroes.

Profile

A land of fire and brimstone, Múspell is ruled through monarchy by Surtr. Múspell is bordered by Nifl, which Surtr leads a conquest of. Utilizing Múspellflame and the Rite of Flames, Surtr is able to kill the current monarch and scatter the various heirs. He then moves his sights to Askr, and allies himself with Princess Veronica of the Emblian Empire and Loki, a mysterious trickster.

Utilizing his daughters, Laegjarn and Laevatein, as well as one of his top generals, Helbindi, Surtr defends against the Order of Heroes when they invade Múspell after successfully completing the Rite of Frost, which imbued Breidablik with the power to dispel Surtr's Múspellflame. Helbindi is tasked with defending the Fortress of Cinders, which is located near the entrance to Múspell. He's unable to defend it, which means certain execution, but Laegjarn and Laevatein chose to hide the fact that he's still alive from their father.

When the Order of Heroes reach Múspell Castle, Kiran is able to remove Surtr's Múspellflame, but they find they're unable to kill him, as Múspellflame only kept him invulnerable, the Rite of Flames is what made him immortal. Using the assistance of Bruno and Hríd, the eldest prince of Nifl, the Order of Heroes discovers that the Rite of Flames is what made Surtr immortal, and that it requires the sacrifice of lives to keep him immortal. Loki tells the group that the next two sacrifices are Veronica and Ylgr, the youngest princess of Nifl, so they travel through Burnt-Bone Gorge with increased speed to reach the Temple of the Rite of Flame.

When they reach the temple, Laegjarn chooses to sacrifice herself to the flames of Múspell to defend the entrance, which means she briefly gained incredible strength, but this came at the cost of her eyes and then her life. Helbindi rescues Veronica and Ylgr, cutting off Surtr's power from the Rite of Flame, allowing the Order of Heroes to defeat Surtr. With no one else left to assume the throne, Laevatain became queen of Múspell.
