Heroes: Líf – Lethal Swordsman is January’s Mythic Hero!

Well, there you have it! Fire Emblem Heroes’s first Mythic Hero of 2020 will be Líf: Lethal Swordsman, one of the antagonists of Book III.

Recently, data-miners learned that Líf’s signature weapon had its “enemy-only” flag altered, which hinted that he may be this month’s Mythic Hero.

Líf’s Mythic Hero banner will be available between 30th January to 6th February (UTC).

Correction: Apologies, got the UTC dates mixed up with the PST dates.

In his debut banner, Líf will be joined by: Legendary Ephraim, Legendary Hector, Legendary Lucina, Loki, Yune, Caineghis, Picnic Lucas, Legendary Eliwood, Byleth (female), Hilda and Legendary Leif.

If you’re interested, there’s a page for him on the “Meet some of the Heroes” sub-website. Also, keep reading for a text breakdown of his skills.
