Embla once worked with the Askran kingdom to open and close the gates to other worlds. However, that changed when the Emblians let the gates open for their own ambitions.
The emperor of Embla summoned heroes and waged war with Askr to his death, when the country declared the end of the war, as the crown passed to his second wife, the empress. This did not end amicably, as some people of that land took their lives as well, due to his renown. Peace went, until his daughter, Veronica reignited the war once again.
The Japanese name for Askr, "Ask", and "Embla" are derived from Old Norse mythology. Ask representing a male form, whereas Embla represents a female respectively—were the first two humans, created by the gods. In Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, both sources, three gods, one of whom is Odin, find Ask and Embla and bestow upon them various corporeal and spiritual gifts.
In Old Norse, Embla theoretically means "elm tree" or "vine".
