Overview and early years

Aelsa Featherwine of the Fay is the queen of the Light Elves of Alfheim.[1] She reigned for at least dozens of years upon Alfheim.[1]

At some point and for some reason (possibly simply for the sake of the challenge), Thor Odinson crept upon her in her sleep in order to steal a lock of her hair. Unfortunately for him, she woke up and set him on fire, and it took him two decades to regrow his beard properly.[1]

Modern days

Years later, the Warriors Three wanted to judge the new female Thor, and asked her to prove herself capable of many feats Thor had accomplished. Among those, the stealing of a lock of Aelsa's hair. Thor accomplished that feat by simply waking up the Elf Queen and addressing her demand.[1]

War of Realms

When Malekith the Accursed and his Dark Elves invaded Alfheim, Aelsa tried to negotiate with him. During the private meeting for negotiations, she was brainwashed with magic and forced to take Malekith's hand in marriage to unify the Light and the Dark Elves.[4] Following the marriage, Aelsa snapped out of the brainwashing and was imprisoned in her own dungeons.[5]

The Dark Elves proceeded to raze Afheim and consume its resources over the following months. The League of Realms tried to rescue Alesa, but they were instead lured to a trap.[6] While the League fended off Dark Elves, Malekith set in motion his plan to burn down Alfheim after having determined the realm outlived its usefulness. After starting a fire, Malekith attempted to murder Queen Aelsa. While she was plummeting to her death, Aelsa was saved by Mjolnir and taken to safety. Thor subsequently cast a storm to extinguish the flames, but most of Ljosalfgard had already burned down.[3]


She possibly had powers, having set Thor Odinson on fire.[1]
