|~ Fomortiis in Fire Emblem Heroes, whilst possessing Lyon.|
Fomortiis, also named Fodeth in the Japanese version, is the main antagonist of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.
Fomortiis is an ancient Demon King in the continent of Magvel, who was sealed by the Five Heroes in Year 3, using the Sacred Stones. Among them, the stone of Grado held the spirit of Fomortiis.
Eight-hundred years later in year 803, Vigarde, the Emperor of Grado, died. In despair, his son Lyon then tried to bring Vigard back to life using the power of the Sacred Stones. Lyon succeeds, but in the process got him influenced by the demon.
The degree of influence depends on the route chose by players:
- In Eirika's route, Fomortiis would possess Lyon's body directly.
- In Ephraim's route, Fomortiis would manipulate Lyon's darkest feelings and emotions to corrupt him.
Using Lyon as his pawn, Fomortiis resurrected Emperor Vigarde as his undead servant to invade neighboring nations, in order to destroy the Sacred Stones of the other countries that have sealed the rest of his body away.
After Lyon's death, Formortiis managed to resurrect himself and directly fought Ephraim, Eirika and their allies, but was eventually slain by their combined effort. After Fomortiis' defeat, the two sealed his soul in Sacred Stone of Rausten before they destroyed his body, ensuring that he will never ever return again.
