Joining her forces was Sara (Chastain) who will be one of the heroes further into the film.
When Freya learned of her sister’s demise by Snow White’s sword, she then directs her army towards the kingdom to retrieve the magic mirror and use it to resurrect Ravenna. While on this mission, Eric and Sara would be fighting against their comrades to keep the peace in the kingdom.
