Niðavellir is a realm from Book V of Fire Emblem Heroes. It is the land of the dvergar, a race of small folk that have unlocked the secrets of technology and magic- seiðjárn.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Decades prior, a coup d'état toppled the kingdom of Niðavellir and the old king was killed, leading the country to fall to ruin and completely unable to muster a force large enough to invade a country. Eventually, a soldier named Fáfnir seized the throne by force and became their king, who the people welcomed his rule, ignoring the fact that he was not dvergr royalty. But the righteousness they thought they saw in him didn't last long, as he'd quickly become a tyrant, subjugating his people and invading other countries, with families separated to add bodies to the war effort, and food scarcity due to the constant warfare. Eventually, they sought to occupy Askr and secure the summoner for Niðavellir.
