Loki makes them. Pretty sure that's already been said.

Pretty sure this is what either more paralogues or book 4 will be about (if it's not covered somewhere in book 3; Thrasir is a thing, after all, and she's the one who made the pact with Embla (the dragon) in the first place, if my understanding is correct.) I also suspect that this will lead into (that is, book 4 will be about) plot involving the four dragons (Embla, Askr, Nifl, and Muspell) and Valhalla (again, who I suspect is a light deity.)

Super Paper Mario spoilers (not too major):

I think they are borrowing pieces from the worlds in Super Paper Mario (which was also made by Intelligent Systems). In that game, Luvbi is the angelic daughter of Grambi and Queen Jaydes. Grambi governs the bright land in the clouds called "The Overthere." Queen Jaydes lives separate and rules the dark world called "The Underwhere" (which is the ultimate resting place of "bad" characters after their gameover). She isn't evil in particular, just doing her job (as a sort of judge). I think Eir's father will be from a "light" world. I imagine that all the dragons (Embla, Askr, Nifl, and Muspell) will become mythic heroes too.

I'll be curious to see how this all plays out. I mean, for all we know, the trailer could just be premonition/tone setter or something to that effect.

However, Book 3's main art piece really teases something happening to Sharena rather than Alfonse. Be curious to see what happens. Too bad it'll be a slog to find out as we're getting another seasonal instead of a new chapter next.

I was thinking about that this morning, actually. Could be that Sharena somehow winds up with the curse instead, and it's because Alfonse was the one initially cursed that he can find a way to bring her back/save her within the time limit she gets. Would also match with the song lyrics, to a degree. "Sacrifice another self," as well as all the references to choosing between two potential futures. But there's also the bits about rescuing a whole world.

Ah, another thing I thought of earlier, but never got around to saying: there may be a hidden joke or reference in having Reyson and Leanne appear here. "Life Returns."

I really do get a feeling that someone is going to take Alfonse's place in regards to the whole curse thing.

I actually had a theory myself that Eir isn't really Hel's child at all, not biologically anyway. Eir looks like a normal human while the other Hel characters have their bones showing in places. And this would fit with the idea that IS was inspired by Super Paper Mario because

Spoiler

Luvbi wasn't really Grambi and Jaydes's child either. She's actually the final Pure Heart in a disguised form.

Alfonse has one day left to live. I wonder if Hel is going to use Frieza time?

If only the game moved that quickly.

Edited the OP to hopefully make the joke a little clearer. But basically, it was that I wish the story in Heroes progressed as quickly as Frieza time.
