Why can't I ever get what I want? All of you, fall back and escape through that gateway! There's no need to fight for me until the bitter end. Then I'd be all alone again...
— Veronica

Detached Princess (Japanese: 閉ざされし皇女 Closed-off Imperial Princess) is the first available xenologue chapter of Fire Emblem Heroes. The story of this chapter is told from the point of view of Veronica, Princess of Embla, giving the player an insight into her personality, and her motivations regarding the conflict between Askr and Embla.

This chapter was added to the game as part of an update released on March 7th, 2017, to celebrate the launch of the first Voting Gauntlet, which pitted various princes and princesses of the Fire Emblem series against each other, and features the characters who participated in that event (except Alfonse and Sharena) as enemies.


Main article: Detached Princess/Script

Princess Veronica summons a number of Heroes for her to "play" with - Chrom, Lucina, Ephraim, Eirika, Leo, and Elise. She picks out Ephraim and Eirika, who refuse to follow her instructions. Veronica reminds them that, due to their contract, they are bound to follow whatever order she gives them, and, if they still refuse, she will force Ephraim to kill his sister. However, she offers to release them from the contract if they comply with her request—to prove to her that their family bonds are as strong as they say they are. Just then, Veronica is interrupted by the arrival of the Order of Heroes, so she orders her Heroes to fight them off.

The battle is won, however, by the Order, so Veronica orders her Heroes to retreat, rather than fight on and leave her alone. She returns to the castle, where she is greeted by the Mysterious Man, who has been searching for "something", and must leave again to continue his search. Veronica offers him some tea, which he accepts. He then asks her if she has had any "odd" feelings lately, as if she was being controlled by something else. Veronica says that she has not, but mentions that she does occasionally hear a voice commanding her to "kill".
