Buddyverse Wiki

Hedne is a region in the Buddyverse. It is based on the countries of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. Other Nordic countries like Iceland and Finland aren't part of it (because they aren't always included in Scandinavia) but will perhaps be part of a future region. The region is inspired both by the Norse mythology and the modern-day side of these countries.


The story of the region begins 500 years before Isa's/Otso's journey. During this time the native residents of Hedne had befriended most pokémon and built a peaceful civilization, even having a rudimentary Pokémon League run by the region's elders. The downside of this society was that the people were deathly afraid of dragon-type pokémon, considering them destructive monsters to be feared and rallied against rather than understood. This led to the rise of a group of warriors dedicated to repelling the dragon-types out of the region, Team Berserk. Despite their small numbers they succeeded and were heralded as saviors. But they continued their quest against dragon-types throughout the next two centuries, slowly amassing enough members to be considered a small city. But the people grew, learned to overcome their fear, and the council of elders eventually decided that dragon-types weren't considered a threat anymore. With this came the decision to disband Team Berserk as there was no longer a need to hunt down the dragon-types but Team Berserk refused. It was their duty, nay their destiny to extinguish the dragon-types from the region and they would see it to the end. This discord caused a large-scale battle between the council of elders and Team Berserk but with the help of one of the region's legendaries, the council prevailed and banished Team Berserk from the region. They endured the exile, though not without vowing that they would return one day to accomplish their destiny. Their actions, of course, had consequences even after their departure as there was a decrease in dragon-type pokémon and even some species became extinct. And for the past three hundred years, the council of elders has been hard at work to repair the damages caused by Team Berserk's misguided actions.


The region, while dominated by a massive snowy mountain range, has plenty of different types of environments to visit. The numerous fjords and coasts of Norway, the swamps and bogs of Sweden, the flat plains of Denmark, forests and grasslands, some mountains that aren't covered in snow and even volcanic and desert areas if you count certain islands near Norway and Denmark.

    • There was originally a morally ambiguous Loki rival who was also a descendent of Team Berserk. He was cut due to overcomplexity to the story.
    • There was lore cut out about Kára, the Valkyrie Elite Four member, and a group called the Valkyire guild. The guild was made of seven powerful trainers (including the aforementioned two) who were trained from a young age to be peacekeepers; however, each has their own sense of right and wrong. Kára is one of the Valyries and attempted to change the world for the better after her training. However, her ideas were influenced by her Berserk upbringing. The Elite Four member believes that Fjölnir and the League are the best for Hedne and decided to use her power for their sake. Many scenes between the two were omitted.
      • Cut to give more emphasis on Sigurd's story.
      • This backstory is still considered canon.
