Hríd (Japanese: フリーズ Hríð) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes. He is the eldest of the four royal siblings of Nifl,[1] and its only prince.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

Hríd is first mentioned during Part 5 of Chapter 9 of Book II, and only then by the older of his surviving sisters, Fjorm, detailing their family and explaining how they got scattered. He is later mentioned in part 5 of the following chapter, in which Laegjarn and Laevatein reveal that he had escaped Múspell's forces again despite wounds.

Hríd finally makes a physical appearance in Chapter 11, where he finds himself needing to be rescued by the Order of Heroes, including both of his surviving sisters, and reveals that he's attempted to kill Surtr by himself even if it cost him his life, but found himself burned; Hríd reveals that, according to information given to him by Zacharias, the Order needs to head for the Rite of Flames and extinguish the flames that fuel them. Later on in the chapter, he leads the Order of Heroes into Burnt-Bone Gorge, a secret route to the Rite of Flames supposedly unknown by Múspell; after the group winds up ambushed, Hríd deduces that someone among the Order of Heroes could potentially be a traitor in league with Múspell.

There are two different variations of Hríd available to Heroes, both of which are tied to his storyline appearance in Heroes. The normal variation of Hríd is the game's thirteenth Legendary Hero, and the third one to be a character original to Heroes after the two elders among his sisters; this variation of Hríd was made available for summoning as part of a summoning event released on November 28, 2018, and is the first Heroes-original Legendary Hero to be added in a dedicated Legendary Hero update, as Fjorm was added in the version 2.0 update (which added the first two chapters of Book II) and Gunnthrá was added in the Happy New Year! update. A New Year's-themed variation of Hríd was made available between the period of January 1, 2019 through February 1, 2019 as part of the summoning event surrounding the New Year's Wish update.

Hríd is the first prince of Nifl, a land watched over by a legendary ice dragon. Being the elder brother of Gunnthrá, Fjorm, and Ylgr, Hríd is totally devoted to his responsibilities. After the attack by Múspell, the Kingdom of Flame, the surviving members of the royal family were scattered. But even still, Hríd struck out alone to take on Surtr, the king of Múspell, and try to restore peace to Nifl. No matter how dire the situation is, Hríd never gives up. That's the kind of spirit that makes him a Legendary Hero!

Trivia

  • Hríd's position among his siblings appears to be disputed among official sources; his and Gunnthrá's Meet some of the Heroes pages state him to be the oldest of the four,[1][2] but Heroes indicates him to be the second-oldest of the siblings with Gunnthrá being the oldest.[3]
