“What a disgrace... It's hard to believe the Dozels are of Crusader lineage.”

Nál is one of the Twelve Crusaders, possesses the title of Axeman, is the original wielder of the Helswath, and is the founder of the dukedom of Dozel Castle.

His current descendants have good relations with the Thrud family and hate the Baldr family. It is not known however, if these relations applied to Nál himself.


Nál, or Laufey, is a figure in Norse mythology and the mother of Loki.


  • Like Thrud, Nál is the one of the only bloodlines without any known holders of Major blood at the end of the game. However, it is possible that Brian may have produced a descendant before his death (or, with some prior and very careful planning, he can be avoided and remain unfought). Alternatively, if Iuchar or Iucharba is lovers with Lex's daughter, the children of that relationship could hold Major Nál blood.
  • Nál's current descendants do not appear to have a good reputation; Lewyn was most critical of them and called them a disgrace to the Twelve Crusaders. It is slightly odd that Lewyn is only seen singling out Nál's descendants when the Thrud and Fjalar families were responsible for just as many crimes. However, one can argue Arvis and Ishtar tried atoning their house's crimes by helping stop the child hunts at the end of the game.
