Frieren Plot

Frieren plot

Frieren is an elven mage who was part of a legendary party of adventurers that defeated the Demon King and brought peace to the land after a ten-year quest. Her fellow heroes included Himmel, a human warrior; Eisen, a dwarven fighter; and Heiter, a human priest.

Due to her long elven lifespan, Frieren’s sense of time is different than humans. She views the ten years with Himmel’s party as a fleeting experience. After they defeat the Demon King, the party disbands and goes their separate ways.

Frieren promises to reunite with her comrades in 50 years to watch the Era Meteors meteor shower that occurs once every half-century. When Frieren returns after 50 years, she finds her human companions aged while she remains youthful.


After one last adventure with the now elderly Himmel to view the meteor shower, he passes away from old age. Frieren expresses regret about not getting to know Himmel better during their journey.

She then visits Eisen and Heiter, her other surviving companions. Heiter asks Frieren to care for Fern, an orphaned child he adopted.

Frieren plot

Frieren embarks on a new journey with Fern to learn more about humans and fulfill Himmel’s last wishes, all while pursuing her passion for magic. Her perspective as an immortal elf who outlives her human friends shapes the themes of life, death, and grief.
