Heimdall, the Hidden Elven Village, is the legendary home of the elves, hidden within the Ymir Forest. Half-elves are singularly banned from ever entering its gates for acts committed by a half-elf to the elven race hundreds of years prior. Stories celebrating Mithos as a hero are banned within the village, and the Storyteller was consequently forced to relocate to Latheon Gorge because of this. The few half-elves born within the village are allowed to stay so long as they never leave or cause problems.
When Lloyd Irving's party first arrives in Heimdall, Genis Sage and Raine Sage are halted by the Heimdall guardians and are barred from entering. Later, when Lloyd comes back to fight Kratos Aurion, Lloyd persuades the elder of Heimdall to allow the half-elf party members to come inside Heimdall, to provide him with moral support. The night before the fight, the companion Lloyd talked to in Flanoir will ask him to come outside and meet with them. This is where the companion asks Lloyd if he or she can come with him on his journey to collect all of the Exspheres. After this fight, as the collapsing Tower of Salvation is raining chunks of debris upon the world, Lloyd and his companions assist in finding some of the elves trapped in the rubble of village, including the elder. Incidentally, Heimdall is also the location where Genis can learn Meteor Storm, but only after the village has crumbled. It is also here that Lloyd discovers Noishe's true race.
- Heimdall derives from the Norse god Heimdallr.
