Valor (ヴァロール島 Vu~arōru-tō), also known as the "Dread Isle" (魔の島 Ma no Shima) is the remote island where the Dragon's Gate is located. Nergal, however, used this island as his base of operations when he plotted and began his secret campaign to resurrect Dragons. The island is notoriously difficult for ships to sail to and is a death sentence for inexperienced sailors and adventurers because of unpredictable ocean currents and sharp rocks. Bramimond, one of the Eight Legends, once made it's home among the ruins while perfecting dark magic to best dragons. Much later, during the events of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, the Black Fang's Shadow Hawk, the Druid Teodor, searched these ancient ruins in Chapter 19xx: A Glimpse in Time looking for clues on how to obtain the legendary Dark Magic Apocalypse that was wielded by Bramimond during the Scouring.
In Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, Lyn, Hector, and Eliwood journeyed to the island with the help of captain Fargus. They arrived in a desperate search for Lord Elbert, Eliwood's father and the Marquess of Pherae, but only just escaped with their lives after Elbert was killed. They later returned to defeat Nergal, but not before much blood was spilled.
