Loki once lied to an ill and delusional Northstar and claimed he was one of them. This prompted Northstar to journey to Alfheim to reside there and abandon the rest of Alpha Flight.[8] He spent some time in Alfheim, later learning Loki's story was untrue.[9]

One of the Ice Elves' palaces was wiped out by the Ano-Athox warlord Uthana Thoth.[10]

The Dark Council's first act of war was the massacre of the Light Elves. They sent their bodies hurtling through space towards Midgard with a a few crashing into a Roxxon weather satellite.[11]

Notes

  • Any relations between the Light Elves of Alfheim (or the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim) and the Elves of Otherworld is unconfirmed,[13] but both Light and Dark Elves are considered to be included among the Faerie of Celtic myth,[14] while another account described only the Dark Elves as being of the same race as those Faerie (leaving no relation between Faerie and Light Elves).[15]
