Ylgr (Japanese: ユルグ Ylgr) is a character appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes. She is the youngest of the four royal siblings of Nifl.[1]

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

Ylgr first appears in part 1 of chapter 9 of Book II, where she is shown to have been captured and is being held by Helbindi inside the Fortress of Cinders in Múspell, calling out for her siblings and refusing to eat; Helbindi eventually convinces her to start eating again lest she never get a chance at revenge. Later on, in part 5, Helbindi prepares to hand her over to be taken to Surtr's castle as a result of the arrival of the Order of Heroes, but Ylgr somehow convinces Helbindi to let her go after getting to his sensitive side. At the end of the chapter, Ylgr reunites with Fjorm and convinces the Order of Heroes to let her travel with them. Oddly, she somehow knows Kiran's name despite them not being introduced in conversation.

In chapter 10, Ylgr points the Order toward the Múspell castle and reveals that, from the tower where she was held captive, a forest running along mountains could allow the Order to infiltrate the castle. The following chapter, Ylgr is among those present when Hríd is rescued, and appears to show disbelief when he accuses there being a traitor among the Order's midst. In chapter 12, "Ylgr" is revealed to be Loki, who had been assisting Surtr by giving him information about the Order's plans, while the real Ylgr is imprisoned with Veronica to be sacrificed to the Rite of Flames. In Book II's final chapter, Helbindi finds and frees the two princesses, ordering them to flee while he makes his last stand against Surtr.

There are two different playable variations of Ylgr available to Heroes, both of which are tied to her storyline appearance in Heroes. The normal variation of Ylgr was added to the game in the Whispers of Death update, and became available for summoning by players on November 21, 2018; this variation of Ylgr notably brings blue daggers into the normal summoning pool, a weapon type not available in the game at its initial launch and previously exclusive to a seasonal variation of Ryoma. A New Year's-themed variation of Ylgr was added to the game alongside the Summer Returns update and made available to players in the sixteenth edition of the Tempest Trials+, "A Promise of Joy", which initially ran from June 24, 2019 through July 4, 2019.

Ylgr is the youngest princess of Nifl, the Kingdom of Ice. She's really friendly and outgoing! Tragically, her home was brought to ruin by Múspell, the Kingdom of Flame. Ylgr lost her mother in the invasion. To make matters worse, she was separated from her brother and sisters and kept hostage in Múspell's Fortress of Cinders. There, she was guarded by Helbindi, one of Múspell's most infamous generals. Poor Ylgr was in such dire straits!
