“Scurry, scurry, little Heroes... Steal for me. Spread destruction. Kill all those who stand in your way.”
Veronica (ヴェロニカ Veronika) is an antagonist of Fire Emblem Heroes. She is a young princess of the Emblian Empire. She aims to destroy the Askran Kingdom by manipulating heroes from other worlds. Her personal tome is named Élivágar.
Veronica is the daughter of the late emperor of Embla's first wife. She followed her father's footsteps by venturing to other worlds and enslaving them, and thus, starting a war against Askr. The Embla populace, alongside with her advisors, gave their support for such actions.
While not confirmed yet, it is somewhat implied in Xenologue 1 that she is being manipulated by an unknown force. When Bruno asks her if she feels like she is being controlled by someone, she states she sometimes hears a voice telling her to kill, after which she feels like wanting to do what it says.
Though bent on fulfilling her father's former dream, Veronica carries a certain loneliness inside. This loneliness is seen in Xenologue 1, when she orders her heroes to retreat because she does not want to be alone again. She also seems to be childish, becoming frustrated at the Summoner's many victories, as well as having tea parties. She enjoys the company of Bruno (who is later revealed to be her older brother) and follows what he says.
- "Feeble creature."
- "I have no use for you."
- "I'll shut you out."
- "Less than nothing."
Veronica is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:
