Genealogy of the Holy War

And with the Book of Naga in hand, Saint Heim prays to the heavens; Prayer invokes light, and from the light emerges the white dragon who confronts the dragon of darkness.
— A poem composed by a Grannvale villager

Saint Heim (pronounced /⁠heɪm⁠/[key][1]; Japanese: 聖者ヘイム Saint Heim) was the leader of the Twelve Crusaders of Jugdral, the original wielder of the holy power of the Divine Dragon King Naga, and the founder of Kingdom of Grannvale.


As with the other Crusaders, Heim was a warrior fighting in a revolution against the tyranny of the Loptrian Empire, and was one of the many survivors barricaded in Dahna Fortress by the year Grann 642, after the tide turned against their movement and the Loptrian Empire's forces overwhelmed the revolution. It was at this fortress that the Miracle of Dahna occurred, changing the fate of the world: Heim was chosen by Naga, leader of the dragon "gods" who descended upon the fortress, to undergo a blood-bond with her, transforming him into one of the Crusaders. She bestowed upon Heim Naga, a tome bearing her immense power and strong will, causing Heim to be strongly influenced by Naga herself.[2]

Appointed the leader of the Crusaders, Heim led the revolution forces in the remainder of the Holy War, and at its climax personally slew the Loptous-possessed Gair XVII, as the only Crusader powerful enough to do so.[3] At the war's conclusion, he founded the Kingdom of Grannvale in Jugdral's center with the assistance of fellow Crusaders Baldr, Nál, Ullr, Fjalar, Thrud and Bragi, who founded the kingdom's six duchies. Like Bragi, Heim came to be revered as a holy man; however he was viewed as a figure of holy power and a military hero, rather than the more peaceful view of Bragi adopted by the world.[4]

  2. "The holy dark tome Loptous contained Loptous's overpowering hatred and resentment towards humans, and was able to control the human who broke its seal (namely Bishop Gair's descendants, those who inherited large amounts of the original pact-former's blood). So it was, a human who possessed Loptous's strength and will was born. (The final boss of Genealogy of the Holy War was his victim.) In resistance, Naga gave the holy light tome, which she transferred her own will and power into, to Saint Heim. For Naga, who had always disliked interfering with the human world, this was a very worrying decision."Designers' notes from a Genealogy of the Holy War playing guide, translated by Serenes Forest, Retrieved: April 28, 2013
  3. "Lewyn: Yet Loptous's clan wields the most diabolic power of the entire tribe. King Naga passed his own blood onto the leader of the liberation army, Bishop Heim. That was Naga's only hope to rival the Loptous power.
    Seliph: Couldn't any of the other tribesmen take on Loptous?
    Lewyn: Doesn't seem likely. Even with all their power combined, they'd still need Naga's.
    " — Lewyn and Seliph, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  4. "Heim was a holy man was well, but at the same time he was a powerful (militarily) hero who saved the world, so House Belhalla was revered as the world's rulers. This might sound quite close to the Holy Roman Empire and the Roman Pope, I guess."Designers' notes from Fire Emblem: Treasure, translated by Serenes Forest, Retrieved: April 28, 2013
