Askr (Japanese: アスク Ask) or the Askran Kingdom (Japanese: アスク王国 Ask Kingdom) is a kingdom appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes. It is the homeland of Heroes' main characters, and allies to the player. Askr is also home to the Order of Heroes.


Askr is a prosperous nation located in Zenith. The Emblian people appear to be jealous of Askr's wealth and status,[1] and have conflicted with them often in recent times.

Askr's royalty has had the power to open gates to other worlds for many generations. This is in contrast to the power of Emblian's royalty, who have the power to close gates to other worlds. For a time both countries used their powers in tandem, though Embla eventually stopped cooperating for some reason, leaving Askr with only the power to open gates. Both countries are known for summoning heroes to fight by their sides.

Notable locations in Askr


Gnótthæð was a place in the eastern part of Askr. While once beautiful, it was the first place of Múspell's invasion, and it was burned to ashes.
