Surrounded by constant snow, Nifl is ruled by monarchy through an unnamed queen. There are two princess of the kingdom: the eldest Gunnthrá and the youngest Fjorm. While Nifl neighbored the Fire Kingdom of Múspell, the two fought against each other, until the current king, Surtr overwhelmed Nifl and killed the queen, leading to the destruction of the kingdom. Princess Fjorm took the legendary lance Leiptr and attempted to exact vengeance upon Surtr and failed. She was miraculous enough to be spared and left on the wayside to die only to be discovered by the Order of Heroes and rescued. However, despite first appearing in the Summoner's dreams, Gunnthrá remains missing.
According to Fjorm, it is Nifl custom for any person of the kingdom to repay any debt to a person who rescues them from the snow.
In Norse Mythology, Niflheim is the name of one of the Nine Worlds and considered one of two primordial realms alongside Muspelheim. It is said to be a realm of ice, cold, and frost. Through it, the rivers of Élivágar flow.
