Heroes Book III

I made a dangerous wager, and I lost. We all did. Hel won. Hel killed my sister, and in the end, after everything...she bade me balance cohort of the dead. That is my task. When someone from another realm dies, someone here is saved. On these terms, I forged a contract with Hel. To save our world, I will decimate yours! [...] Lose my mind? How could I not? It was all my fault... The people of Askr, and Sharena... My sanity, it died with them.
— Líf, to Alfonse

Líf (Japanese: リーヴ Líf) is the secondary antagonist of Book III of Fire Emblem Heroes. He is an alternate timeline version of Alfonse and a general of the army of the dead.

Role


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.


Líf was the founder and first king of Askr, later dying of unknown causes.

An alternate Askr and Embla banded together to defeat Hel by creating a "forbidden heart," at the cost of the citizens' lives with each pulse. Stricken by grief, that Askr's Alfonse was made into one of Hel's generals shortly after her escape. He took the name "Líf", and assisted Hel in her conquest of the living world.

During the events of Book 3, "Líf" clashes with the Order of Heroes as they journey through Hel's realm and later on, in an alternate version of Askr. At one point in the alternate Askr, Líf attempts to kill Alfonse, but hesitates when Sharena intervenes and retreats. Using information he learned from the alternate Askr's library, Alfonse deduces that "Líf" is an older version of himself.
